  1. I thought you guys were talking about a Veterans Marathon!
  2. That's D1. The earlier question appeared to be about D3. You can compete 4 years over indefinite time span. If you practice or compete that year is gone. No redshirting per se- not positive about hardship (injury)
  3. Something just occurred to me. Did you just see of this incident quite recently? Reason I ask is that another friend mentioned something like this recently. The one I heard about was possibly early June. So these may well be different scenarios.
  4. That was weeks ago. I have no idea. I think it might have happened in a couple places. One went as I suggested. Another logical possibility is that the no shows were simply marked as positive rather than removed.
  5. From what I've seen not really an urban myth. However, it's not what it appears either. It was an instance of bad queueing. It was situations where queues were set with names before getting in line. Then if someone pulled out of line, their names weren't pulled out of the queue. Therefore, they got the results of the person originally behind them in line. This cascaded through the line. I assume the last people in the line got no results. As a tournament organizer, it would be like having a forfeit at some point without recording it and without clearing that bout so that results kept being one off. I don't know if it means the testers weren't checking names or that they didn't know what to do to the computer part of the job to recognize the missing entry.
  6. I just found out who you are. You know me, too. Been a while.
  7. I helped run a number of tournaments. I announced some. Hard to say if I did a specific one that you were at. However, I also have been running the preps since your parents might have been in grade school!
  8. If I understand the chart, 3 tied for 9th on classification points but he won over them on other criteria.
  9. A problem of definition with a step out type of rule in folkstyle (especially college) comes from current out of bounds rules. In college, nobody is out until everybody is completely out. So it's actually the second guy going out that causes an out of bounds call. Obviously, you don't want to penalize him. But suppose one guy goes one foot out and then yanks the other guy around and out and then the first guy steps out. That's why currently you might see it called wrestling out. You might need to change the ob criteria from your feet to mirror freestyle and keep it when on the mat or in the process of a td.
  10. How many other 9ths were there?It might have broken down since it's partially classification marks.
  11. I used to help with BTS events in NYC. Announcing was always fun. If I had to read 5 bouts, I might easily have 10 different ethnicities and hence pronunciation methods. Sheesh!
  12. You're reading way too much into this. Calm down. And again, I was responding to your statement that clubs won't help. I said clubs may be all that will help. I wasn't saying right now.
  13. You were making it look like you were blaming us or me for them doing it on their own. We can't control them any more than any other sport. Not all clubs are USA sanctioned anyway.
  14. There was supposed to be a dual event down the shore in a couple weeks but it was cancelled the other day.
  15. That's on them. I said there probably were some wrestling. We haven't sent out any go ahead yet.
  16. What's so hard to understand that we aren't wrestling yet? I was talking about preparations for when we do. We might not be allowed to for a long time. And given the camp in Georgia who knows?
  17. I've twice said we aren't wrestling yet.
  18. This is nothing new to all of us. We have a lawyer with USAW/NJ. And we on the state board are more on the side of holding back than a lot of the parents. We were canceling out trips to the national duals in June and Fargo before the national officially canceled the events. As I said, I think some clubs are already wrestling. We haven't officially sent out anything to open. We were originally thinking to open early July but have still held off any announcements. The one club that's mostly using the site is doing it with conditioning and outside work. And NJ is actually ahead of most states in infection rates- although they're going back up a little now. We're actually telling the clubs to check with their local authorities first.
  19. Outdoors/Zoom. I'm sure some are wrestling but quiet about it. Mostly conditioning and independent drilling at this point. I threw together a page for the clubs to have their kids sign into and record the kids temps. So far only a couple clubs are using it. They'll have a special clothes changing process and several other conditions. The site will help with attendance in general but specifically for contact tracing. One of the interesting ideas that came up is to limit partners throughout. This will have the partners keep track of each others health. In the smaller/medium sized clubs the coaches are very much on top of the kids health (hopefully) which means there's a better chance to know what's going on. The biggest concern I have is the larger scale events (camps, tournaments) where you lose track of who's there and likely have to travel via airplane or other mass transportation means. The club kids are generally driving alone or having their parents drive them to whom they're already exposed. I'd like to have them all tested but we know how that's going.
  20. But that's got nothing to do with clubs going now. They will need to deal with the future- this might be the only way to do that. There will or will not be a season. That's independent of the clubs. Especially in NJ. You're not better because of those awards, you're better because you work to get better. NJ is a major club state.
  21. Huh? Going to clubs may be the ONLY way to help you much this year. In season awards aren't the only reason to wrestle (or compete in any sport)
  22. The latest estimates are that Scotland has about 60,000 problem drug users, or 1.6% of the adult population. Scotland has "proportionately way more drug users than the rest of the UK" says Dr Andrew McAuley, a senior research fellow at Glasgow Caledonian University.Feb 26, 2020
  23. 3. Who's coming in second? When Bird arrived at Chicago Stadium to defend his back-to-back three-point titles in 1988, he looked around the locker room and asked, “So, who's coming in second?” Naturally, Bird backed up his trash talk and won the contest for the third year in a row.
  24. The camp in Georgia doesn't help either even not being a wrestling camp.
