Like I posted yesterday, this comes up every year but I've never heard a good reason why they don't. It's not an absolute necessity to have state draws 2 hours after regionals are completed. Is wrestling that unimportant to the SDHAA that it's not worth the trouble?
I 'm not trying to incite a riot here, but would be very interested in a reason why this isn't done. It would be very easy to do, and the brackets could come out early in the week, with plenty of time for each wrestler to prep. for whoever his opponent may be.
Check out ND State tournaments on track wrestling. They seed the tournaments and are pretty darn accurate. The talent is well balanced throughout the brackets.
At very least there should be a true 2nd match, although, personally I would prefer seeding.
Isn't the ultimate goal to have the two best wrestlers in the championship? How many weight classes this year will have the 2 best wrestlers go head to head in the semi's?
Any input on this would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
