  1. Plenty of examples.  Point is - why couldn’t you get a takedown or closer to securing a takedown in the 32’ allowed inside the circle? Plenty of real estate to work with. I think the other contributor in another thread was correct that we’ve gravitated toward more line wrestling than mat wrestling over the years.

  2. NCAA rules require a mat size of 42' x 42' with a minimum wrestling circle of 32'. High School regulation size is 38' x 38' with a minimum 28' wrestling circle.”

    Seems like we should be wrestling in smaller areas, not larger ones.  Proximity to the mat of scorer’s table should not directly impact one’s ability to get a takedown on the mat. Agree?

  3. so….no, this isn’t the lowest total year, but…..still a downward trend pin?


    2021 = 59 total

    2020 = COVID cancelled

    2019 = 63

    2018 = 69

    2017 = 70

    2016 = 70

    2015 = 56 (record low total?)

    2014 = 75

    2013 = 74

    2012 = 79

    2011 = not available 

    2010 = not available 

    2009 = not available 

  4. Agree.  Thought the same when I checked it last night after semis.  Understood that it’s natty’s….and pins should be harder to come by….but to only have four guys on the final day (so far) with more than just one pin?….that’s crazy.  And the time gap between Schultz and the other three guys is even crazier.  Definitely a weird non-covid year.

    Alabama.  While incredibly proud of these guys for what they were able to do - clearly, we have a long way to go on the national stage by comparison to the other 49.

    You realize at the time of the still picture singlet grab you show the score was already 9-2, and he scored no additional points after that.  Ruth got whooped fair and square.  Ruth did avenge it in the finals, but he got destroyed that match.  Give him a point for the singlet grab and he’s still down 9-3.

    Actually, the score was 7-2 even in the screen grab used...and from the screen grab you see the official signaling for 2nf (instead of technical violation) which moved the score to 9-2.

    But I see your point.  And yes, I was kidding anyway.  All in fun.  That momentary snap didn't dictate what happened immediately before or after it.  Props to Amuchastegui.

    The point of the thread was to try and bait people into proving that Ruth is the best PSU wrestler of all time. We sort of got there.

    Yes.  And yes.  Call it a success.
    Although you have to admit...while not the best PSU had all time, Ruth is/was/is pretty solid.
