Folk vs free in College Wrestling Posted May 4 · Report reply I see a lot of people pointing to riding time as a problem with folk on the college level. Something I posted on another thread was a rule change that would only allow a wrestler to accumulate riding time if they had already secured a two point score of some kind (takedown, reversal, near fall). It would incentivize scoring in the opening period and take away the incentive to simply build riding time in a 0-0 or 1-0 match. You could also add a wrinkle that a stalling call on top would stop your riding time clock until another 2 point score is earned if you like. That would be a deterrent to hanging out below the waist and taking the "free" stall call when the top wrestler gets in trouble. Downside is you better have a competent riding time clock operator.
