    Yianni-Zain: Who is favored in the wrestleoff?

    If Y is a 2-1 favorite he would expect to win either 2/3 of the time. But to win both the odds would be 4/9 assuming odds stayed the same (independent events).

    PED Testing in NCAA

    Not in my twenty years. I think the kids involved had very minimal points. Maybe none in one case.

    Yianni won the arbitration. Next steps?

    BTW- I happened to just have a conversation with someone involved in the process of setting this up. The coaches have no say in the officials and none of the officials (including reviewers) will do this match as a couple here have stated. (Yianni and Zain that is)

    PED Testing in NCAA

    Am I sure, no. I don't believe I heard what officially. But pretty sure the one was but don't remember.

    PED Testing in NCAA

    In my 20 years as scorer, I believe I was twice asked to cancel out an individuals scores as a result of testing.
  6. That says that position (one knee down) WILL be considered par terre not that others (as I quoted) wouldn't be.

    He had a td at 18 seconds. He tied up and took a shot at 12 seconds. He circled in the center.Did he do exactly what you said? Yes. Less than 10 seconds. I never argued that technically he could be called but cmon.. And some of these officials were sent home.
  8. I get that. As I said a few of us thought you and ljb meant in bounds. That's over. You guys didn't mean that. But Yaz wouldn't need to be touching the mat since he could be on top with goz supporting him.
  9. This comment was to state that you (and the previous poster) was unclear in what you meant since I wasn't the only respondent to think so but to also acknowledge that I realized at this point that you did mean par terre. Also, quad pod can be par terre given that Yaz could be considered as dominant even prior to any takedown criteria. PAR TERRE: refers to mat wrestling where the wrestlers are in no advantage position and the defensive wrestler is on his or her knees (think of a front headlock) or where one wrestler is in the dominant position on top.
  10. Do I need to cut and paste from my other reply that you copied in your reply? It's the first comment.
  11. Actually you did say they weren't on the mat. You didn't start that part of the conversation but you said something like umm, no they weren't when someone disagreed with the other poster.

    Sammy Julian doesn't live far away but will they bring the same officials back? I'm not sure who the judge was but two of the officials that do the Olympics were on that bout. And Tucci and stecklein were on the review. Do you keep them out?
  13. First, I don't think I was the only one to assume you meant in bounds by on the mat. Second, it doesn't matter how long the knee or butt was down. Third, in my watching video initially was thinking it was close as to whether the knee actually touched. But in reviewing I think it did. Clearly Zach errett did also several times. He was incredulous with the other guy's refusal to see it. Fourth, as to my lack of understanding, I officiated national fs and Greco finals matches over the course of about 7 years. Admittedly that was a while ago but the concepts in this case haven't changed.
  14. No idea what you are looking at. They might have been a couple feet from dead center. This is between 2:50 and 3:00. First the knee touches (barely) then Yaz sweeps a leg and Goz hits his butt. The ref called 2 after the butt hit.

    Worst NCAA Championship Match of All-Time

    There was some talk about whether Palmer tanked intentionally so that Kinseth would get OW.
  16. The other review official next to Errett hardly looked at the video. I also thought that even if you think the knee didn't quite touch a couple seconds later his butt hit.

    My understanding is that they are shopping around for a venue for labor Day.

    Your Team’s 19/20 Probable Lineup

    2nd d1 transfer can only be back to original without other complications. But he did wrestle what looks like 7 dates through early January.

    Remember the most entertaining sequence in that Olympics? The Mongolian protest? It was also involving UZB. The investigation found something along the lines that certain officials kept being assigned to the mat or review teams for UZB and calls were made in UZB favor.

    Bad Look For Wrestling

    I don't know why I came up with 3 gallons I know it's 8 pounds per. I doubt they would weigh him at the hospital prior to taking care of him. If he was showing signs of dehydration they would be negligent to do so. Assuming they called an ambulance they would have started prior to getting to the hospital.

    Bad Look For Wrestling

    But wouldn't the hospital have immediately IVed him prior to checking his weight? I doubt they gave him nearly 3 gallons of fluid but I think 17 pounds was after taking care of him which would include clothes isn't what he went in weighing.

    For one thing- they want a chance for any country to medal. The odds of that drop if they try to actually get the three best to medal.
  23. I'm not going to claim that I know viewership but Greco is likely popular in different countries than FS. A breadth of popularity in terms of countries might account for higher entries at the World's. Possibly in countries with less developed internet capabilities. I think Greco is more similar to various other folkstyles.

    Kurt Angle 1995 Worlds

    As I said I couldn't remember the specific rule. I also realize you're saying what they were told to mark down as opposed to what they were to count. I was working the results side of the event and did see the score sheets.
