  1. 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.

    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.

    Except that it isn't other than in this guy's (and your) opinion. If another post is to be believed, PSU showed considerable precedential evidence to the contrary and somewhere Tucci was shown saying it wasn't.

    I was very impressed with this guy's resume as regards sports arbitration. The main two previous wrestling arbitrations (Lewis-Smith, Sieracki-Lindland) seemed to revolve around conflict of interest rather than rules of the sport. This seemed to be more about a rule. I don't think I've ever met Zain. I have had a couple of very short but enjoyable conversations with Yianni. My amateur opinion was that Yianni should have scored (although different views showed different things). However, this "rule" about the timing of the brick was interpreted by the top in sport people as being ok under the circumstances. We can argue that here but the people that are paid to interpret those rules on a regular basis decided what they decided. That says to me that it wasn't a hard and fast rule in the first place. And I haven't heard anyone suggest that Tucci, et al, has any bias towards anyone. The closest I can see anyone with anything close to possible geographic bias would be Sammy Julian who doesn't live too far from Benton and he voted for Yianni. Does anyone have any clue as to whether all four sides here (Zain, Yianni, initial officiating crew, Tucci and review panel) had input? I would think that Tucci saying this 5 second rule was as valid as the more well known 5 second rule (dropping food) - it isn't- would end the argument.

    Anything from arbitration?

    According to Yianni's Twitter, the rematch won't happen until next year! https://twitter.com/yiannidiako_LGR/status/1162131066678927360

    Who's taking an olympic redshirt this year?

    I get all that. I was simply commenting on the use of grey-shirt in this case. Not that grey-shirt is at all of an official term but its use is for deferring enrollment not during enrollment. My friends and I would generally call this situation an Ivy shirt.

    Did Brandon Paulson? Although even if so Frayer was likely talking FS.

    He was given the decision because the officials had more attempts marked down than JADs. I think this only counted in OT but not sure any more.

    THE Ohio State University - a dumb idea?

    So if someone writes/talks about the Ohio State wrestling (pick your sport) team, they could be sued?

    Had this same discussion over 20 years ago. Consider the source.

    Kolodzik already grey-shirted. He enrolled so that ship passed.

    As to scoreboards, they might be able to put all 8 on the videoboards. Hopefully the one above the floor so you don't have to look away. Also, with Track and Flo you have the option of monitors at matside rather than the more traditional black cube clocks. Can do similar to World's where they use maybe 50 inch monitors which have great visibility. There would appear to be plenty of room to make this happen.

    Funding the RTCs

    Any money donated to the club/RTC can ONLY be used by the club/RTC. Obviously, it can, in part, go to the wrestlers of the college team as expenses or work performed but it CAN NOT be redirected towards the team itself. That would make it a University affinity/booster club. They must be independent. Generally, the "volunteer" coach is paid via the club. Becoming a booster club would mean the school was funding the coach as booster clubs are considered part of the institution. The reverse would be equally true and easier to understand that if the school funded the club then that club is part of university control.

    Anything from arbitration?

    I know Tucci didn 't. Then why did you say that the 5 second being a guideline changed because he felt that 30 was too long?
