    This may be a hot take, but I’m going to go out on a limb and predict Jack Mueller doesn’t even qualify for Big Tens.

    This was a good showing for the Hoosiers, and a fun match to be at, the atmosphere in The Wilk ,for a Monday , was just like a Friday or Saturday match. People from all over the state were there.  
    indiana wrestlers show up with a full tank of gas every match this season. Third period for them is like the first. Coaches Escobedo, Jordan, Dixon, and new addition Tsirtsis are making waves in The hot bed of wrestling,Bloomington Indiana. 
    The in state studs are taking notice how this team is wrestling.

    ...According To Fans

    I have been to Lehigh and RU - not the other 3 out of the listed top five.  LU is great, intimate and not a bad view anywhere.  RU/RAC is one of the loudest arenas around and awesome atmosphere.
    Rutgers hosts Cornell tonight and will also unveil championship banners for Anthony Ashnault and Nick Suriano - the RAC will be rocking!

    Iowa turned a guy, who was only a state runner up his senior year, into a 2 time ncaa champion, with 2 more years to go. How can you even compare the two.

    Compare that to Oklahoma State vs Oklahoma U "Bedlam" which had a reported 2,402 - I am curious as to why this legendary series would not have 2 or 3 times as many showing up?

    The concept of it, I'm fine with. What it means now, in execution, has become a painful point in our sport. How many matches in recent memory are 3-2 decided by 1:04 of riding time where it's grab ankle until a four count, drive opponent down to the mat, rinse, repeat. I think it sucks in its current format. I believe it should be kept and only scored if a viable nearfall attempt has been scored. We have stalling rules aimed at reducing "riding" yet we still have something called "riding time." I didn't grow up in wrestling from a young age. I discovered it in my teens after being an avid and rabid fan of all sports. It's one less nuance as well. When I went to the Virginia Duals and saw the second clock, it confused me. Without fail, I have to explain riding time to every single high school fan under the age of 50 who looks over to watch college wrestling. It's been my personal experience that it's another unnecessary nuance that slows matches down, creates controversial scenarios with ankle riding, added rules to combat it and ultimately, serves as what exactly? Some time of weird tiebreaker? With all the attacks on freestyle and its criteria, we decide a winner based on seconds of riding time when athletes go into the tiebreakers. I think the concept of riding time, perhaps in your era, was justified and provided some merit. I've only been around college wrestling approaching 25 years, so my scope of why I don't like riding time comes from this era.

    Wrestling's got three positions, top, bottom and neutral. I think proficiency on top should be about turning and going for the fall, not hanging on and going for a point for hanging on for a minute. I don't subscribe to a theory that we should go freestyle, but I've just never liked riding time. I also don't subscribe to the theory that one style is wholly superior to the other. I like them both.

    I love me some Jordan Oliver and am very glad that he’s qualified for trials. With all the suspension stuff I was saddened that he might have missed his shot during some prime wrestling years. We’ll see how he fares against Zain, Yianni, etc. but I’m very happy to see him there in the mix.
