    Official Striking Wrestler at Fargo

    Both at wrong, started by smart-mouthed disrespectful jawing. The leniency practiced today in schools is the cause of so much disrespect. This official lacked self-control; I assume he will quit officiating because few are siding with him. and he isn't gonna take crap off a snotty kid. He looked too old to change his ways, and honestly, I might have done the same thing too. We are just too soft today on all kids, not just wrestlers (they're probably one the most respectful). Admittedly, I'm a baby-boomer, from the age of discipline.

    Wrestling and IQ

    Intellect may help some, but clearly, shear athleticism trumps it all. Charlie Heard was the toughest wrestler in the world for 2 min ; he teched K Darkus 10-0, Silver medalist to S. Beloglazov in 86, in the first pd at Pensacola Trials in 88 (when TDs were worth 1 pt); was beating Barry Davis 6-0 till he gassed (same tournament); was beating Sergia Beloglazov 4-0 at Tiblisi till he gassed. Charlie is not a Mensa member.

    Final X Rutgers live thread

    Are there avenues available to actually protest a match, especially when the top brass are the ones making the matside review decisions?

    Final X Rutgers live thread

    An explanation was given in the Flo post meet comments, that they went back 45-50 seconds to where the sequence began and continued for so long.

    Final X Rutgers live thread

    Women's wrestling has been around longer than MMA. MMA has grown in leaps and bounds technically; there is no reason to ever compare women to men in wrestling; it's true in all sports, but especially physical sports.

    Cox made absolutely 0 shots the whole match.

    What is the best body type for wrestling?

    Quotes are out of order, but they are correct. But I must add is that the guy you hated most to wrestle was the long, lean, strong (sinewy strength), but also extremely flexible. Try doing a firemans on a python. Satiev is built like that; he could do things no one else did, or counter when there was no known counter for a certain situation.

    45th NCAA in a row- annual post

    Dziedzic picked up his counter to Schalles's leg wrap counter to the single (while standing) from Muhammed Ghorbani (my asst coach and 71 World champ from Iran) that week (& he used it successfully in the 76 Trials against Wade). Clinicians were Shozo Sasahara, Dan Gable, Bobby Douglas, and Yuri Shakmuradov; Stan tried to get Yuri to show more than he did, but he only showed low % fancy stuff you never saw used.

    45th NCAA in a row- annual post

    Fond memories of those first years-1975 at Princeton- Between sessions in the practice room was the best wrestling and exchange of ideas, techniques, etc. Greats of the past would show up and wrestle. Dan Gable would take on all comers as they lined up 40+ for the chance to go takedowns with him; he did that again at the 1975 World Coaches clinic in Mn, when Wade Shalles showed up in line. He hit a firemans on Dan, but Dan simply used the momentum of the shot to roll him thru, and Dan comes up holding 2 & 2, which is how freestyle would have scored it. Only time I've ever seen anyone do that technique. Anyway, I miss the early years of practice room exchange of ideas; learned a lot; I remember seeing Sergei Beloglazov playing with some of our best. Ask Chertow how it went.

    If all wrestlers are seeded?

    Wouldn't it make the 32 seed have a pigtail with the 33 seed? That is correct, with winner wrestling #1 next?

    If all wrestlers are seeded?

    Does this mean that all #2 seeds have a pigtail match with #33?
  15. I know there are others, like Gimp, who is one ahead of me; my first was at Princeton 1975. And I know that Dan Gable must be approaching upper 50's in NCAA appearances. Who are others approaching these numbers, and how many will this be for you?
