    New NCAA wrestling selection procedures?

    Can one of you in the know better explain the "new" NCAA wrestling selection procedures? Article in the DSM Reg this morning seems to indicate only conference champs automatic, everyone else now selected by a national committee, not conference committees. Expected impact, if any?

    Re: New NCAA wrestling selection procedures?

    Little impact for Big 12. Maybe a couple more guys will make it.

    Short version...

    *Conference champs (110) will be automatic bids to NCAA
    *Each conference will know, prior to its tournament, how many qualifiers it will be allotted at each weight class. No more "wildcards" selected by coaches, as it were.
    *Qualification process will be based on wrestler's record and a type of RPI system (opponents W-L, opponents opponents W-L)
