    Coach_J reacted to tigerfan9311 in missouri   
    Waters is no thug. He clearly has no love for Iowa or their fans and dialed up his intensity in order to head Gilman off at the pass, so to speak. Maybe he overcompensated, but watch the Delgado match. There was no funny business at all. Iowa brings out this behavior in their opponents. Reap what you sow.

    Coach_J reacted to tigerfan9311 in Should Gilman be punished further?   
    Ok.  Brian Smith, Alan Waters, and Shane Sparks are all wrong.  Anonymous internet posters are correct.  Gotcha.  As unbelievable as it sounds, Waters was called for the slam.  Blows your mind, huh?  Should have been 2 points for Waters, not 1 and 1.

    Coach_J reacted to Bucksfan in Shane Sparks "Slam" Report   
    He has everything to do with referees getting away with this BS. Of course he isnt going to be able to walk out and I overturn a call, thats absurd. He can, however, reprimand these refs when they clearly blow a call like that. Its not like these refs are volunteering their time, they are paid professionals whos decisions have a huge impact. The look on Allens face was one of helplessness, like, "oh dam, my boy got that wrong but I cant do sh@t about it now"
    Its not like this was a subjective call, like if he thought the shoulders were flat or not for a pin. This is night and day.

    Gilman more or less hit a full backarch.  I don't see how this was anything besides an attempt to injure his opponent.  Could have been very serious.  Our sport isn't immune to the concussion problems that now plague football.  This call demands an official statement.

    Coach_J reacted to irani in USA sending 3 GR wrestlers to Takhti Cup in Iran   
    This is Voice of America in Persian.
    You can watch the video, but unless you speak Persian, you have to take my word for it.  They interview the New York Athletic Club assistant manager, Bahman Tavakolian,  who is Iranian born, and he says that the, US GR team is in rebuilding phase, but the 86 Kg wrestler had a good chance for a medal.
    They also discuss the Iranian team coming to the US in April for the world cup.

    Very sad. Thanks for sharing this news.
    Of course Darton State was the site of a tragic situation involving some of its wrestlers back in 2013. Some wrestlers collapsed in the heat while on an outdoor run, with one -- Ben Richards -- dying days later. Here's a link to the story I wrote:

    Coach_J reacted to wrestlingphish in Henry Cejudo v Tony Ramos   
    If anyone has the game plan to beat Cejudo it is Terry Brands. I have a feeling Ramos will be well prepared. Also, if Cejudo has a UFC fight 3 weeks earlier I doubt he will be focusing too much on freestyle wrestling till 2 weeks before the match. I see Ramos taking this one.

    Coach_J reacted to ironmonkey in What did Gilman do behind the Gophers bench?   
    I understand your perspective Coach J.  If I was a coach I probably would view it the same way.  I don't think you are wrong at all, especially as a coach.  
    I just was pointing out that what fans find entertaining differs.  I am a fan (short for fanatic).  We like rivalries and antics.  As far as Hendricks and Askren go, I think waving at the crowd and engaging the crowd is taunting, similar to what GIlman did, although he was taunting the opposing team.  When I think of problematic taunting, I envision an athlete taunting his/her opponent following a score or a win.  But that is just me.  I am sure the rules make no such distinction.  
    It will be fun to see if he keeps this act up in the postseason and if it helps or hinders his efforts.  
    Thanks for the differing perspective COach.

    My feeling as a coach (and the rulebook supports this) is that my side of the mat is for me and my team and your side of the mat belongs to you and your team.  I completely agree with you that this is taunting, which is best left to the pro ranks.  I have no problem with a guy like Askren or Hendricks strutting around with a target on their chest; I don't recall either of them flagrantly taunting an opposing wrestler or coach or outwardly instigating something.  And they had national titles to back up their walk--Gilman doesn't.  Maybe I'm wrong.  JMHO.

    There's a good amount of success for such leagues in Iran (national sport) and Germany (nowhere near the fame of soccer), so why aren't our guys backing these American leagues looking to them to see why Bundesliga and others are having long-term success?

    When I competed in Sweden our club used to dual against other clubs in a league.  We did one round of greco first and then freestyle second; some guys wrestled both matches, but sometimes a "freestyle specialist" would take the second bout.  Of course, they preferred greco way more than freestyle.  We then had three league standings:  greco, freestyle, and combined.  Loved the format--lots of fun.

    Coach_J.... you sound like you could have gone to my HS back in the late 60s!!  Collegiate coaches and administrators need to figue out how they want their institution represented and have their athletes understand.  I have always been fans of teams who had class.Sorry just who I am and am proud that my son still feels that my values helped form who he is.

    Coach_J got a reaction from HurricaneWrestling in The "no reaction time" rule regarding takedowns. Thoughts?   
    If we call the "no reaction time" takedown we might as well wrestle freestye.  Technically, an armspin can be a takedown under this rule even if the man rolls out of it and no control is established.  In most collegiate flurries, "no reaction time" takedowns would be endless (especially if we call a "no reaction time" reversal).  Control was one of the major distinguishing factors between the two styles.  Just another step toward freestyle.  JMHO.
