  1. We're gonna see more stuff like this with such a big shortage of refs. Wrestling refs are overworked, too old but nobody to replace them, pulled up to high level stuff when they are not ready, etc etc because we simply do not have enough of them. I agree this call was clearly incorrect and the refs on the mat did not handle it well at all. Unacceptable that when three refs are 'watching' they all got the colors mixed up and refused to accept they were wrong. That all said, everybody in here bashing these guys should try putting on the stripes themselves. Maybe you will be able to help with the shortage, but you will probably realize it is 100x harder than you think and quit after getting yelled at a few times like many do. Than you might at least respect them more. Wrestlers are weirdos dude, not just refs. It's a fringe sport for a reason. Nice contribution.
  2. That was bizarre. You got your ass kicked fair and square dude nothing to get mad about. I agree he should be thrown out of the tournament. He was clearly trying to injure Micic.
  3. Man I'd almost forgotten about that duo already. They were fantastic.
  4. He was stone faced while Massa was flexing at him too. Pretty funny.
  5. Similar situation. Was way too much balancing a non-teaching job and coaching, so I put on the stripes. I see a lot of teams with almost as many assistants as wrestlers yet we have a serious reffing shortage. Wish more people would follow suit.
  6. Brands is twice their age and a coach/mentor while they are a freshman and sophmore in college. Hard to say that they are just as immature imo.
  7. Too hard to pick one favorite. Really like guys who get creative. Askren, Nolf, and after watching Yianni's matches at EIWAs he's quickly becoming one of my favorites to watch.
  8. Small tournament favors the team with a more balanced lineup (Ohio State) Big tournament favors the team with more all-stars (Penn State) I think it all comes down to whether Nolf is 100%. He wins and Penn State probably gets it. He's still hurt and doesn't place, I could see Ohio State winning it.
  9. Right on. Sarcasm isn't the easiest thing to detect via text.
  10. I agree, always thought it is dumb of coaches to do say something negative about the opponent. Whenever I heard an opposing coach chirp about me it always motivated me to beat his guy and shut him up.
  11. I agree with that seeding. Crazy that the two time champ could very well not get a top 5 seed.
  12. He did go out then put his toes back in. At first glance seems like no 2. However, if you slowdown the replay, Coon's hands and knees hit the mat, Snyder has both legs, and a toe is in. They immediately go out afterwards, but at that point the two had already been earned. When I saw it live I thought they blew it but after watching the replay, the refs made the correct call.
  13. Watched the match on flo. DeSanto seemed to lack his usual pace until he got taken down, which was very late so he had no chance to come back. I've been a big fan of his style but like some other people have mentioned, he lost his head and committed a very unsportsmanlike act. Could have injured his opponent and it was clearly intentional.
  14. It wasn't. I was there. Massa seems to have figured him out, was one step ahead of him that whole match.
  15. 125: Nato 133: Micic 141: McKenna 149: Retherford 157: Kemerer 165: Martinez 174: Hall 184: Nickal 197: Sheed 285: Coon
  16. Taylor just broke two Olympic champs in one day. Wow.
  17. I love folkstyle but I agree. Look at how much more exciting freestyle became after they implemented new rules. 3pt takedown and 1 pt pushout in neutral. Make folkstyle great again!
  18. If you're gonna shill, at lease be a little more subtle
  19. I believe any moves that bow the back (like this or making a guy "phone home" with a leg turk) are illegal until the college level.
  20. Am I the only one who thinks no takedown was the right call after the review? If you look closely, Imar never gets around both legs (very creative scrambling by Nolf to keep him from doing so) and never gets control to the hip which could have negated the fact that he only had one leg. Great match either way, can't wait for round III! Hopefully in the finals
  21. They weighed in 14 times. That is what caused the mistake by the coach/AD, they counted weigh ins instead of events. One of the weigh ins was for two events. Michigan (idk about other states) allows day before weigh ins for non-postseason events, so you can weigh in for an event that day and if you have an event the next day you can use that weigh in. It's not that uncommon of a practice so the coach/ad are at fault... but they got punished by being banned from the team tournament. Punishing the individuals is outrageous, bu that is what they are doing. Any of the wrestlers who wrestled 15 events (some are very very good) are banned from individual districts this Saturday. Once again the MHSAA screwing kids.
  22. Seriously? Taylor beats (techs!) a 4x world medalist in times square. He could have celebrated twice as hard and it wouldn't matter. I've seen kids celebrate more after winning a youth tournament than that.. Don't be a hater.
  23. I love Flo and I know the personalities of some of those guys irks people but I happen to find them very entertaining. I can see how people are upset about the direction they are going, but they are a business and they do provide a pretty outstanding amount of content covering all levels of wrestling. If trackcast takes off they are going to have some serious competition, at least in the live broadcasting. Hopefully this will push them to improve the stability of their live streams as that is my biggest issue with their services.
