  1. 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.

    USAW was skeptical because the hospital records showed him to be 17 over 90 minutes from weigh-in.

    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.

    I might be wrong but I believe the officials were instructed to mark down attempts in last two minutes of regulation plus OT in the 95/96 rukles.  I could also be easily wrong on this, but I watched the match multiple times and felt Jadidi made more legitimate attempts.  I felt ;like Angle was the beneficiary of a hometown decision, but AMericans (and everyone else) has to deal with that in close matches all the time.

    I say this as a huge Angle fan.  I don't know why people are saying he wasn't slow.  His ducks were lightning and, if you look at the 95 highlights, he hits an extremely quick low single.Also had some great defensive technique/scrambling for a big guy in 1995.

    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.

    You are right except that it IS a hard and fast rule, which is to say that you are wrong.

    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.

  5. 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.

    I think you can skip school for a year in the ivies and it functions as a redshirt as long as you aren't enrolled. It's not really a "greyshirt" but functions the same way. Frank Mattiace did this at Penn a few years ago. The big difference is that they cannot be enrolled in school. His greyshirt after high school has no impact on whether he can do it now because his enrollment didn't start until after that so he still has the five years under NCAA rules and can use the loophole thing since he goes to an ivy.

    I've heard Glory is going to do the same thing for Princeton 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.
