    I have never read a single post on this board (about WRESTLING explicitly) state that the student athletes should abandon classroom studies or that wrestling is more important.  This scold post is quite unwelcome.

    I believe very strongly that the effects of the reaction to this virus will cause much more long term negative effects and human misery than the virus itself.  In no way do I mean this to be insensitive to any individual or family that loses a loved one.  I am talking macro effects here.
    For perspective - about 10,000 people die every day in the USA and more than 250,000 worldwide die every day.

    Unless the doctors and nurses work without pay and the electricity company transmits without compensation and all property taxes are revoked for that time and all people paid by the property taxes also do not require compensation, etc. etc. then IT IS NOT FREE!!
    The only question is who pays for it but it is not and cannot be free.  Joe Kennedy wants all federal tax payers (about 35% of the population) to pay for the health care of everyone who gets the virus.  The reason we have health insurance (private, medicare, medicaid) is for just this sort of situation.  Let it work.

    if they cancel this tournament they should be ashamed of themselves...

    From day one a wrestler is taught fundamental values such as character, integrity and respect regarding our sport... These same values are the foundation to being successful both on and off the mat... We are taught to respect your opponent and the sport... We were taught that the sport is bigger then any one particular wrestler, coach or team... These values are understood GLOBALLY... Its understood that there is a sense of honor and fair play that goes into our sport... It's our "CODE"... The code that is the backbone of what being successful in wrestling but more importantly in life is all about... We take a sense of pride embracing this code...
    Sadly... and to many of us embarrassingly that code was broken that day by the leader of a program... He has a responsibility to lead thru his actions and not his words what our code is all about... And he failed to do so on the biggest stage and in the biggest way...
    Regardless if he or anyone else acknowledges what he did was an embarrassment to the fundamental core of what we are all about... By no means is there any responsibility on any other individual... He could have and should have inj. Dlftd that match if his wrestler was unable to continue... His wrestler who is a stuf in his own right loses that match 10 times out of 10... and yes he could have defaulted at anytime... 100% no question about it...
    So they can say whatever it is they want to but when it's just them looking themselves in the mirror they know the truth... They know how things went down and they know that everyone thinks differently about it... Most wont tell them how they really feel about it... However, he should know that there is a substantial quite majority out there who feel this way... They chose to not express how they feel because of many reasons and those close to the program no why that is... However, the wrestling looks differently at the program and their leadership now and that is apparent by the response this incident  has gotten...
    Hopefully he realizes we arent naive... we arent oblivious to what took place... 
    For those out there thinking I'm just out here being a key board warrior...
    I've spoken personally to coach about how I feel... Face to face and I looked him in the eye... We agreed to disagree...
    But I also spoke to 50 plus coaches all of whom thanked me and agreed with me for saying what many wanted to but for whatever reason didnt...
    Congrats to all the individual state champions out there but more so to those wrestlers who continue to honor the code that our sport holds true...

    Is anyone else getting sick of the referees talking so much?  I want them to shut up and just ref.  I don't think anything is added to the wrestlers or the bout by hearing "keep working", "center, guys", "work with that", etc. etc.  High school referees can do it without the chatter.  Are they mic'ed up or is this just bleed through to the open microphones of the announcers?

    Unpopular opinion here: how is Spencer Lee not called for stalling in this finals match? He got off the hips a total of one time the entire match. How do you call bottom man for stalling when top guy sits on the hips and just pushes the head in to the mat? No different then double legs and pushing the head down.

    125:  Lee appeared to feel he had something to prove, maybe because medley held him to his only non-bonus win of the season?  I did not see much of the other match, though it looked like Schroder controlled.  Lee by whatever he chooses.
    133:  RBY stalled.  He also got the only TD.  Desanto needs a plan when he gets in, he froze up any time RBY went to grab the knee.  Rivera-Gross was AWESOME.  I think they're the two best guys at the weight.  If Desanto can't be there, that would be a great NCAA final.  Rivera DEC RBY.
    141:  Surprisingly lackluster by both guys, though both were facing game opponents.  I picked Pletcher to reverse the result from last time, with Lee winning the NCAA title in two weeks, so I'll stick with that.  Pletcher DEC Lee.
    149:  Sasso just doing Sasso things out there.  Lugo looked great and controlled.  This match will again come down to whether Lugo can chase down a TD, because Sasso has an advantage on the mat.  Can Sasso dodge all those bullets again?  I say no.  Lugo DEC  Sasso.
    157:  A little surprised that Deakin "only" won by 6.  Coleman, meanwhile, had a nice win over Robb, though it was decided by one exchange, basically.  Deakin demolished Coleman earlier this year.  I think only Deakin DEC Coleman here.
    165:  Joseph has just completely figured White out.  Felt weird to see White get hit for stalling after RBY never got hit once, but it had no practical effect, Joseph just controlled the match.  Marinelli obviously was fortunate to not have to deal with Evan Wick, who is tough even though Marinelli has beaten him something like 456 times in a row.  He house Oster, as he should have.  Marinelli gets back to his winning ways over Joseph.  Marinelli DEC Joseph.
    174:  Kemerer wrestled two different matches.  He demolished Skatzka for the first half, then got stuck underneath for the remaining half.  It was a bizarre sequence where the ref called Skatzka for stalling, when it should have been Kemerer.  Nice heart by Kem to get the late reversal (and back points) to retake the major.  Hall looked good, not great in his match, though he had a really impressive TD off a situation that almost always ends up in a stalemate.  Give me Kemerer again tomorrow, I honestly just think he's better.  Maybe Hall is a bit burned out.  Kemerer DEC Hall.
    184:  Brooks-Venz was fun.  Have we ever gotten an explanation why Venz didn't get backpoints after he put Brooks on his back?  Regardless, that cradle Brooks locked up was NASTY, and then his technique was fantastic when Venz broke the grip, ad Brooks settled in for the fall.  Lot of guys give up the position there.  Caffey is a magician out there, defending every shot Assad threw at him.  Assad tried a couple of different finishes than what he did at the dual, and Caffey defended them perfectly.  Brooks appears to have really stepped up his game the second half.  Brooks DEC Caffey.
    197:  Moore looked dominant.  Szhultz did not.  Hearing Penn State fans scream for a second stalling call on Schultz was a bit much considering the RBY of it all, but also....Schultz was stalling.  Moore DEC Schultz.
    HWT:  Parris looked good, but not great.  Impressively defended Hilger's attacks and found ways to score.  Cass just has nothing for Gable, and it appears he knows it.  He swipes at legs because he knows he'll get countered. So Gable has him beat physically and mentally.  Gable may be an *******, but he's a damned good *******.  I've changed my mind on this one.  Gable DEC Parris.
