  1. A couple months ago that might have been a quick default
  2. Can't compete second half of a season (based on dates not just first semester second semester)
  3. I put weight classes on a mat for the day (until later on if they move a weight on a mat with more bouts). So it kind of works out the same way.
  4. That does help a few of the seeds but I think there were only 3 of those requests. The unseeded weights didn't need to have any separation. No expected ncaa qualifiers (or not more than 1). This kind of event is simply about getting the necessary number of matches not about finding out who was the actual 2nd or 3rd best kid at the weight (first usually works out no matter what).
  5. Was also switching between college and HS and thought HS. College-wise happens a bit. I don't think any restrictions other than keeping in mind that more than 6 attached wrestlers makes it a countable date. Not sure if the 7+ has to be a same event or not. Never thought about that.
  6. Sorry- misread. I think there was also a thread about that sort of thing recently also. Some states do allow this some don't. Events like Beast/Ironman/Eastern States often have teams that only bring 1 or 2 so it must happen with them also.
  7. Some of the weights were unseeded.
  8. If I understand it correctly, Michigan allows multiples at the sections (or whatever they call first round) and not beyond. Thought I heard about switching weights at 2nd round but that seems very weird.
  9. A vs An is by how you say the word. If a vowel sound an, if consonant a. NCAA is generally pronounced En-Cee-Double_A That starts with a vowel sound.
  10. And to my knowledge, nothing in either the rulebook or the compliance manual.
  11. Not sure I get your point. It was the other guy that pushed away. And I'm from Lehigh.
  12. Huh? Some tournaments limit but I've never heard of this restriction.
  13. This has been mentioned before but you can't go by the NFHS numbers for participation for Pa. The PIAA approximates by taking a guess at the average of 20 per participating school. The published survey showed Pa with 9460 (473 schools). The actual numbers are more like 10,900 which puts much closer to most mentioned and ahead of NJ. I know the numbers because I get a full dump of them for the PIAA Team States.
  14. Inductee: Chris Campbell In 1977, after his senior year in college, Chris Campbell made his first World team at the age of 23. In 1980 he made his first Olympic team but was unable to compete because of the United States’ boycott of the the Games. The following year Campbell won a gold medal at the World Championships. After a layoff of nearly 10 years, Campbell made a comeback in 1990 at the age of 35. At the World Championships that year he won a silver medal. The following year he placed fifth at the World’s despite notching a victory over the eventual champion. In 1992 Campbell made his second Olympic team and earned a bronze medal at 198 pounds. While wrestling for the University of Iowa Campbell was a three-time All-American and a two-time NCAA champion, winning titles in 1976 & ’77. His career record of 122-6-3 ranks sixth on Iowa’s all-time career winning percentage list. Did you know? Chris Campbell was 37 years old when he won his bronze medal at the 1992 Olympics.
  15. An actual slap? Probably in lower level if the chair knows it was wrong for some reason. What happens more often is for the chair to deny the call. For the most part, a denial means the chair is pretty sure it isn't one. Chair will agree if he thinks it probably was a good call. At the actual international level, things can get more complicated with possibly 3 different languages going on in the crew (and 3 different national interpretations and 3 different egos).
  16. A. Perspective. B. Generally the most experienced official is here. He can keep his focus on the bigger picture. I officiated international for a number of years mostly in my 20s and 30s. I preferred on the mat as long as the chair had my back. However, you learn how to see more than you think from the chair.
  17. Other countries have different systems that wouldn't necessarily apply here. I think a number of countries are done with their HS term after the equivalent of 10th grade.
  18. I've seen it called Rumble and Tumble and Beauty and the Beast. Several schools do it. https://brownbears.com/news/2019/1/23/general-gymnastics-wrestling-combine-for-fifth-annual-rumble-and-tumble-meet.aspx https://encrypted-vtbn3.gstatic.com/video?q=tbn:ANd9GcQdhoyTendJXHceGDB5DOvl0-g2ggiw4YKO4eHlDMxUgSC5pTaT https://www.thedaonline.com/beauty-the-beast-gymnastics-wrestling/image_30676dc4-9755-11e3-b6ca-0017a43b2370.html
