Are message boards a thing of the past? Who is going to wake them up?
Boards are dead because a lot of Karen's were on here saying the world was ending last year. And here we are almost a year later still here, still wrestling, and still living our lives. They don't want to admit they were wrong.
Weather it is 1a, 2a, or 3a how long does someone stay in rankings if they haven't wrestled yet this year ? At some point they need to prove their ranking.
I'd say after no first half of the season matches they will adjust accordingly. This is an unprecedented year and I would assume they are giving some wiggle room as far as keeping kids in the rankings who they know will be back at some point.
