  1. Two great wrestlers and definitely a gritty match. Still, I think Marinelli was overconfident and showed a lack of awareness in forcing an outside trip from that over-under position. That's been a successful lateral for me whenever anybody tried to trip me from the outside in that position - and an easy one at that. As a nation, we do not have very good upper-body skills.
  2. There was a point where control on the back for a five-count would have netted one more point. Used to need that extra back point to go into another gut wrench. The current rules are a big improvement over the best of three-period-ball-grab days, but they do lack some flexibility in terms of scoring.
  3. Is 3 even an option, or are you just looking back on the days of 1, 2, 3, and 4/5 point take downs?
  4. I haven't kept pace with the changing rules, so this may seem like an ignorant question: Is there any argument to be made for this being a 4-point move on reds part, or does blue having gone to their knees first negate that possibility?
  5. Maybe it's just me, but I'd expect a PD call when the defensive wrestler's arm is trapped like that.
  6. Not an official, but I've been around the sport for a few decades. To the best of my understanding, the rules require that when your locked hands encircle the head the elbow has to be trapped in there, too. As gimpeltf said, white has a legal hold until :16 when he locks his hands. At that point the elbow is not included in the lock, making it illegal. Looks like a pretty straightforward call that the head official missed; the assistant bailed him out.
  7. Hobbits typically can not grow facial hair.
  8. Looking at Gable as a coach and going, "Dur, Iowa style!" is really, really, REALLY dumb. There was a little bit more behind his coaching than simply having athletes who were in really good shape who pushed people around the mat.
  9. My understanding is that officials had explicitly told all coaches before wrestling began that a warning would be issued before they went to a caution and 1. That protocol was not followed in this particular instance.
  10. Interesting how control calls have changed over time. If that match were officiated today, Brands would have had an easy 2 at 7:31 when he was behind Cross's arms with his left leg laced.
  11. The controversial action starts at approximately 8:22 of the video.
  12. On my high school team it was the cranky weight cutter. One day he was bundled in so many layers that he could barely move. I was trying to open him up with a cross face from the top position when he snapped and bit me in the arm.
