    Lincoln had the boot scoot, definitely his go to move.
  3. Yep, the fix is very simple - first one is a warning, second one is a point. It literally fixes everything and they will change the rule next year.
  4. Seriously, I've been following wrestling for 20 years and it's always "if they just called stalling" as the fix to everything. No it isn't, make hard and fast rules that don't involve ref discretion. Because EVERY SINGLE RULE that involves ref discretion is a bad rule, because they don't/won't call it when the match is on the line.

    Indiana vs Maryland - Wow, just wow

    I don't think so, they have an RTC like thing where people are training. He's still traveling and helping out post collegiates. There was a great article on how Kerry got Kenny Courts out of retirement, to lose a bunch of weight and come back and wrestle a tournament where he pinned a high level russian. It was a great read and there was total respect there. The guy is universally loved by the people he's involved with, so I wish I knew why Maryland is where they are. But unfortunately it's a tough sport, especially in the Big Ten and the results aren't there. Unless he gets a Jake Herbert-like recruit to turn around the program I don't see it changing. I sure hope it does though...

    Desanto Team Point

    Or have we always had these issues and the Internet is just magnifying it now? I mean we have stories about Gene Mills pulling out guys beard hair during a match... I'm thinking there have been excessive celebrations and after match shoves for decades but message boards now give anyone the ability to start a thread to express their outrage, which then leads to TheMat.com/HR/BWI/etc rabbit hole. Not saying I approve or disapprove of a lot of these, but I don't think it is a newfound systemic issue. It's an intense sport with overly pumped up competitors, this stuff will happen and should be reigned in if it goes too far. Still, it isn't new...

    The thing is that Kerry coached Stanford and did a good job and did well as an assistant at Lehigh too. I don't know what it is, and I know he is universally liked by everyone who knows him, but it's time for a change. That program continues to get worse with no signs that it'll improve...

    Of course not, I didn't mean to imply that if I did. More of what treep and misterc said

    Suriano vs Fix: Who wins the dual?

    Richie Lewis and the 133 pounder from last year both showed bad sportsmanship on multiple occasions.

    No Teasdale?

    What if everyone is ducking HIM by wrestling when they know he isn't... Think about it.... Actually, don't...

    JB at 79 makes sense too, I have a feeling with the rule changes that cut to 74kg is really tough for him now. I think he'll be just fine up there...

    Suriano vs Fix: Who wins the dual?

    I mean, they had to bump up their 157 to 165 and JoJo/Jacobe/Greer are working their way into higher weights. So really none of it is a surprise is it? Rogers is there at 165 when healthy and I doubt that changes. Sure Gfeller could take Brock's place but I don't see what that has to do with 157-184.

    tOSU 125

    The examples of Nato and BoJo show that he doesn't always put the best guy out there, that's what I was fleshing out. But I do stick to Ryan never wanting a straight up hole in his lineup. Who was the last sub .500 tOSU starter with a better guy redshirting? Probably few and far between...

    Gfeller v. Ashnault

    Gfeller is a scrappy dude, but Schnaulty just a little bit better in all positions. AA's ankle pick is filthy, fun match. Now that I think of it, does Gfeller ever have a boring match? Dude brings it every time

    Minnesota vs Iowa

    Did Russell get any stall calls from bottom in the first? Because he definitely deserved a couple...
