    How Big? Cael's contract

    Table 1 - - - Athletics Participation. A participant is a student-athlete who, as of the day of a varsity team's first scheduled contest in the traditional season: (a) is listed as a team member; (b) practices with the varsity team and receives coaching from one or more varsity coaches; or © receives athletically-related student aid. read the entire heading

    How Big? Cael's contract

    success is similar. the sports are hard to compare in attendance because of the number of competitions. financially both programs have more than doubled their reported expenses since 2011. wrestling's revenue outpaces the w volleyball team by 700,000 and the net loss difference is more than a million dollars in wrestling's favor. hard to justify equal compensation.

    How Big? Cael's contract

    per match volleyball draws 1/3 of wrestling. total revenue from ticket sales is also 1/3 wvb/wr. volleyball operates losing a million dollars more than wrestling. financially they aren't on the same footing.

    was the officiating poor at us open?

    almost every closely contested match had at least one challenge brick. make of it what you will.

    Illegal Cutbacks (re: Clark vs Tomasello)

    100% not true. that clarification was made before this year, identifying the laces and shin bones. even before that clarification was published those versions were always illegal once the double knee kickback became illegal.

    NCAA At Large Berths Announced

    he beat cruz, longo and prince early in the year. went 2-8 down the stretch against good competition. i had him and zanetta from pitt 18-13 4th acc battling for the 33rd spot. coaches poll and rpi liked profaci going into conferences.

    that might be true... i thought this was the formula used for the matrix matches also...

    don't go bringing logic into the matrix. walk that right back out the door.

    lizak is the only guy in the conversation with wins over picc and thorton, but he blew it with the loss to jrod

    Potential Seeds 125

    dance probably passes him and he lands at 3 unless his coaches rank slides way down. he only has 6 quality wins so cruz could pass him with a slide in coaches rank and rpi.

    Potential Seeds 125

    h2h 25% quality wins 20% coaches rank 15% results against common opponents 10% rpi 10% conference placement 10% win percentage 10% he wont lose many matrix matches. the thorton loss means virtually nothing.

    suriano will look really good to the matrix only losing out on the 10% conference placement points

    Suriano Lots Better

    weird they're on spring break and inside people aren't saying anything

    Vegas Sportsbooks

    i was in vegas during the Olympics and pretty much went to every sportsbook in town hoping to get action and none had it. they had all kinds of handball and table tennis lines, but no wrestling. i would guess the online sportsbooks are your only option. i had a decent hit during 2015 worlds and it took about 3 months for my check to arrive from sportsbook. they said 6-8 week cashout period. when the window was missed i began sending weekly emails. i also read a ton of online reviews that had me believing they were on the verge of bankruptcy. long cashout stories were very common. i wont take online action again with the low limits they put on the wrestling bets.

    Getting a TD out of bounds

    the call is pretty consistent, but nowhere in the rules does it state that there is different criteria on the edge. why is more points better if they aren't properly scored?
