NJ does it that way too. The NCAA coaches tried to a few years back and it fell flat. An NCAA team tournament won't succeed until the NCAA removes the team title from the individual tournament.

I bumped into the NCAA guide on dual and tournament scoring.

https://cosida.com/media/documents/2011/12/ncaawrestlingscoringrules.pdfIt differs based on the number pf places awarded, 8, 6 or 4. PAC12 must be awarding up to 6 places. Make note of the differences in points awarded between placing 1st and 2nd for each.

8 placers (B!G 10) - 16 for 1st and 12 for 2nd - a 4 point spread.

4 placers - 10 for 1st and 7 for 2nd - a 3 point spread

Now look at 6 place tournaments (PAC12) - 12 for 1st but 10 for 2nd - only a 2 point spread.

You would think that the point spread would a straight line decrease with the number of places awarded, 4-3-2, but it in't, it's - 4-2-3.

Given that, I'd agree with you that the NCAA needs to amend the points awarded for tournaments recognizing 6 places. OSU should have scored at least 5 fewer points. Not only do they need to amend the points scored for 2nd, but also 3rd and probably 6th.

The current spread is : 12 - 10 - 9 - 7 - 6 - 4....

A fairer spread would be: 12 - 9 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 5
