Correct, the NCAA already allows doublets so long as they are compressed. Board shorts are not allowed.
When all else fails, do the opposite...

Didn't they already try doublets about 8 years ago? (maybe even more)

doublet sounds more gay then singlet, we need a better name

Yeah just call it shorts and t shirt, if it was used internationally, the iranians would still find a way to tie it in knots as a defensive hold.

By traditional do you mean the classic singlet with full leggings? If so then it gets my vote. If it was good enough for the wrestlers of my era and DC comic book superheros then it is good enough for todays wrestlers.

I think the NFHS should definitely adopt the 2 piece. As a high school coach, I know for sure some kids don't wrestle specifically because they're self conscious about the way their body looks.
I always bring my hips to the party.
