On the flip side we could just remove team scoring outside of conference meets.
If we eliminate team scoring from the National Meet, then it is simply a mega-individual National Championship - no more Team Trophies. I'm not sure some schools/ADs would go for that.
Plus, the optics of a sport NOT having a team national championship competition might be difficult for some to comprehend. I'm not suggesting I would be heavily opposed to exploring the idea, but I like the idea of creating a structure for a "true" team championship in our sport.
