"Specifically, the cabinet wants additional feedback on how the proposed championship would affect the current championship,

information on the views of the NCAA’s media partner(s),........

In other words, what will ESPN pay for the tournament rights and how will the title format change the financial picture of the individual tournament.

I think they also need to consider allowing teams not in the "Sweaty Sixteen" to schedule duals during the two week tournament period.  What can amount to three weeks off before conference tournaments may be too long a layoff.

The need for the PAC 10 to completely reschedule their conf tournament is merely an after thought.

I wonder how this change could affect recruiting and recruit team selection, for those perceived to be a notch lower in potential than the top tier recruits. - Do you target a school that you feel will lead you to an individual title, or a "team" powerhouse that is most likely to get you a team championship?  They may not necessarily be the same teams / coaches since head to head dual match ups often produce different results than the team title from an individual tournament.

Ray ... I asked this same question a week or so ago ... Where and when was the input from the wrestlers considered ?? Because i would bet $$ they favored the Individual event, over the Duals.
I finally became the man, my dog always thought I was.

I did get a good chuckle from Koll and Moyers comments after the NCAA tabled it. They basically said "yeah we need more time to discuss this."

I wonder if Mo bonked their heads together after that.
