  1. It is on live on espn news, where the axe throwing was

  3. There is not specific wording regarding end of match procedures when the match is ended due to Flagrant MC or multiple USCs. However, I fully agree with neutralpositionref. If a match concludes due to flagrant mc, something pretty significant had to have happened and I don't want the two wrestlers near each other. As soon as I call Flagrant, I get the offended wrestler to the coach and tell the coach to get the wrestler out of the gym and to do it now. I'll then raise the winner's hand. If flagrant misconduct is called, the situation is already volatile and there is absolutely no need to potentially add more fuel to a fire by making the two get a few inches from each other to shake hands.
  4. My stalling solution is to keep it as it is but allow officials to address a specific wrestler. Generally, except in potentially dangerous situations, Folk-Style officials make comments towards both wrestlers so they aren't considered to be coaching a specific wrestler. When officiating Free-Style/Greco, we a address a specific wrestler when we think there needs to be some additional motivation or want a particular wrestler to do something different. If I say, "Red, action" and then "Red-open" everyone knows that if I say "Red" a third time, something is going to happen to Red and it is usually negative. It is going to be an attention, caution, caution + point(s) or activity clock as examples. Because the officials verbally tell a specific color what to do, when the call is made there is often little excitement from anyone. Coaches, wrestlers and fans have heard that wrestler's color twice and the official has told that wrestler what needs to happen to avoid an infraction. When someone is given an attention for passivity or put on the clock, coaches rarely berate the official. Folk-Style officials are often berated when that fist goes up in the air. How many times per one match do you hear an official say "keep working", "wrestle in the center?" Some officials never quit talking but they never do anything either. I watched a college conference final match a few years ago and the official kept saying "Action, Gentlemen." He said that over 9 times. Nobody was warned or penalized during regulation after all that talking. I say let Folk-Style officials address individuals just like Free-Style/Greco officials. It achieves the same preventative officiating. I'm telling Green something twice (center, action, open, watch the fingers, stay off the edge, ect). He has really received two warnings. The third time, I'm pulling the trigger. When I pull the trigger, that could be the formal stall warning. If I do it again, then points follow. Edit: I believe the consistency among FS/GR Officials in regards to passivity is pretty strong. I think the same consistency can be obtained regarding stalling.
  5. The forearm to the back of the head is a different story. That is clearly a flagrant act. State finals or not, that is a delivery of a blow and, in my opinion, an attempt to injure. While he did get penalized, his season should have ended at that point.
  6. 6-7 seconds. "During the tiebreaker, the offensive wrestler applies a hold meant to prevent the defensive wrestler from escaping by locking both arms around the lower leg. QUESTION: Can the referee call a stalemate? R U L I N G : Yes. The referee may call a stalemate more quickly in the tiebreaker than in regulation or sudden-victory period."
  7. Probably bad timing on the official but it was the correct procedure to call a stalemate when the offensive wrestler dropped down. Verbatim from the case manual portion of the rules book back then.
  8. Also from the Points of Emphasis that was omitted in the post above: If the referee did not see the alleged bite, he/she should look for the presence of marks from both the upper and lower teeth. Incidental contact with an opponent's open mouth can result in what appears to be a bite; however, the presence of both upper and lower teeth marks is more likely to be the result of an intentional bite than from incidental contact with the teeth.
  9. Here is a link to older rules books (up to early 80's). The rules books are embedded into these guides. https://nwhof.org/stillwater/resources-library/ncaa-guides/ There use to be a 1-point score for a "predicament" in the 50's but there was also a 2-point near fall at the same time.
  10. Not streaming but all the medal matches are shown both live and tape delayed on the Olympic Channel (Direct TV 624).
  11. Look around 3:40 in this video: https://www.flowrestling.org/video/5237423-157-matt-lester-vs-james-fleming
  12. If you want to see some weird positions, look at the complete staff and their titles for some of the big time college football programs.
  13. No, a slip is different that a correct throw. A correct throw is a hold/throw that takes one wrestler off his/her feet and moves them 180 degrees but does not score. The defensive wrestler must “LOSE CONTROL” and lands on their hip, side or stomach when they hit the mat as a result of the action. Reward the technique and risk taken by the offensive wrestler. If the defensive wrestler lands on his knees or feet after the attempt, it should be judged as the defensive wrestler not losing control. A slip throw is an action that results in the offensive wrestling going “directly” to parterre without any action by the defensive wrestler.
  14. It was called a correct hold. The correct throw is still on the books. The correct hold was in the rules in 2015 and then quickly removed. "1 point-To the wrestler who applies a correct hold while standing on the mat or in the "parterre" position with three points of contact but who does not secure control by passing behind in FS wrestling."
