National Duals Cancelled for 2017-18

The Open Mat just reported this decision, with little detail regarding the reasons. I have to assume - just an assumption - that the controversy the past two season about who Iowa would or would not wrestle played a part. Sanderson was pretty blunt about his displeasure with Iowa early this year.

Probably also didn't help that Suriano was injured during the duals too.

IMO, this is a big negative for college wrestling as a whole, which needs all the national exposure (and revenue) it can get. It also hurts teams outside the big four who are eager to show what they can do against them - like VT, Lehigh, Cornell, NC State, and maybe a couple of others.
