College wrestling may change

– The NCAA is thrilled with the fan support during its national wrestling championships.

The next step is to get the casual fan engaged for more than just a weekend.

A proposal pitched Tuesday to the NCAA’s sports management cabinet includes a new, 24-team dual tournament with points available to pick up before the event.

The proposal won’t be inplemented until 2016. The idea behind the change is to emphasize the regular season by forcing teams to compete for a spot in the 24-team event, said Anthony Holman, the NCAA associate director of championships.

The wrestling championships are typically among the most successful the NCAA puts on, but lackluster attendance for regular season meets has long been an issue.
