Such a great change for Illinois wrestling. Some kid is going to lose their first match and run it all the way back for 3rd! Can't wait!

No there shouldn’t. No other tournament ever has walkovers. You lose in the championship bracket, you wrestle again, regardless of opponent. Yes, championship is the ultimate goal. But, you see a ton of character from kids who lose and rebound to run the consolation bracket. This is nothing but a positive change.

No, there are no walkovers. Some still want that archaic rule to come back. I hope it never does.
