    Exactly, this is how I feel it should be interpreted as well. Unfortunately, refs seem to disagree.

    sockobuw reacted to gimpeltf in The "no reaction time" rule regarding takedowns. Thoughts?   
    The main issue is that the interpretation seems to have been misinterpreted by pretty much everyone.
    To get a takedown you need control and points of support on the mat. The ONLY situation that is supposed to be contained in this scenario is when you have control (generally a rear standing position or cradle from standing) and then make the other guy touch his hand to the mat. Control should still have been demonstrated (same old concept of reaction time) but you don 't then also need to have the hand touch for any length of time other than beyond zero. Reaction time ONLY applies to the hand touching the mat not to the establishment of control.

    I kept waiting for the crime to happen when I finally saw the clip. It wasn't 100% clean, but wow did it get blown out of proportion.

    According the Foley, there is no need to change this.  Mat color is more important.

    I've been looking at the current rules cycle as an example of "be careful what you wish for, you just may get it."  The competition committee wanted some more scoring and they got it.  But it has created a lot of problems with the automatic type control calls such as a hand touching.  I've always viewed reaction time as the opportunity for a wrestler trying to establish control to prove it. While the NCAA Rules book doesn't specifically define control, an element of control is the ability to restrain an opponent.  I've never understood how control could be awarded in 2013-15 as quick as it has been without applying some reaction time test.  College has always been very quick with their reaction time but it seemed if everyone understood this.  I've seen far too many takedowns awarded  with an immediate escape call.  That tells me they got the unintended consequence of eliminating reaction time.  It is almost like freestyle where scoring is more of a product of meeting criteria than actual control.
     
    I follow folkstyle as much as anyone here and I watch just as much video mainly a professional development for me.  But some of these takedown calls are complete head scratchers with the majority meeting the criteria for control without actually controlling an opponent.

    have had a little interaction with him and would agree, but he doesn't know where to draw the line. when umd kids aren't performing well he has to annoy them and is even slightly degrading in his attempt to inspire them.

    He didn't look like he had fun after the win. I am worried about him. He didn't raise the roof or anything. That could come back to bite him by the end of the year.

    Sue me. Taffur was one of the very best 157's last year. He was ranked as high as #4. Had a GREAT season. Pretty much everyone in this forum already knows who he is. I refer'd to him as an AA. So F***ing what. Like I said, sue me. Maybe you can get a refund for what you paid to read that post.

    several versions for me, always in college:
     
    a: I am an hour or so out from weigh-ins and realize I am way over because I forgot to cut weight
    b: I forgot my (socks, singlet, shoes) am panicking and don't want to tell the coach
    c: I have eligibility that  was unexpected and I show up at a tournament to compete
     
    I never get to the mat and do the actual wrestling

    i recently did some research. in 7 world championships between 2005-2013 (didnt use olympic years bc of qualifying discrepancies) former soviet republics won 109 of the 196 medals awarded. this doesnt account for defections to countries like turkey..... these guys are not competing against the same field as the guys in the 80's and 90's.
