The idea of at school weigh-in is awesome...but each school would have to get a certified ref at the school ahead of time. That would be an obstacle.
Why would you need a certified referee?  We did one or two seasons where we weighed in in the morning of a meet.  We simply needed a district administrator to witness the weigh ins.  We are requiring the same this year with our weigh ins.
The morning weigh ins were the best as then wrestlers were not moping around the lunch  room whining the day of the meet.

Dang those were some loaded teams.  Gave Iowa a run for their money at the conference tournament each year.

the twins are about the same weight, one of them had to wrestle up all year. I think they both will wrestle 170 as Illinois ha s two guys at that weight.

Wisconsin still has to pays these scholarships for Weiler and Wick even if they don't count against the 9.9. I forgot that Hilliger is a JR. My bad. I am all for these guys coming back. Wick worries me. He could have wrestled for a free year of eligibility this year and chose not too. He has 0 chance to make the Olympic Team. I don't have a good feeling about this.

Perhaps Wick has calculated that his Olympic training experience will better fuel his improvement than this abbreviated college wrestling season might have.  It would be interesting to see which aspects of his skillset are garnering the most attention right now, as well as how it facilitates the desired level of improvement.  Hopefully, we will get to see him compete as a Badger next year, and his chosen path will pay big dividends.
Evan openly said he loved his training situation with the Olympic year. He went out to the east coast and trained with Frank Chamizo, went to the RTC Cup, wrestled senior level guys on the RTC cards, etc.

I do think all sports are heading to elite wrestlers competing as part of clubs and not on their high school teams.  This already happens in hockey and soccer. 

Another great day to have a tournament would be Martin Luther King Day.  Lots of schools off that day and frees up the weekend prior!

MLK Day is an interesting idea...

As much as my boys would have loved the club idea in HS I wonder what kind of mess it would be. I guess you are right with hockey and soccer. I think gymnastic has moved that way as well. And it seems boys swimming gets recruited from club more then HS teams. And I guess if it is recruiting for college I have to think wrestling gets more college coach exposure at Fargo than the WIAA state tournament.
