    Me too, I'd like to see him do well. But his record in big tourneys in college isn't inspiring.

    Snyder is a good answer for the topic "Best to Never Win Hodge" and a bad answer for "Guys Who Should Have Won Hodge," which is not the same question.

    ironmonkey got a reaction from gowrestle in Why Folk/Collegiate/Scholastic Style for The U.S.?   
    I really don't see how changing scholastic to free is somehow going to lead to more "professional" opportunities.  I much prefer Folk regardless.  Switching styles would cost fans.  Those fans don't need to be reeducated or assimilated.  Most college fans have had some sort of exposure to freestyle despite the constant arguments that if we only understood it better we would appreciate it more. Props to the poster who made the connection to soccer fans!  It is totally the same kinda thing here.

    "They got their season" absolutely is obtuse and "there's real problems affecting the world" absolutely is off-topic. This is a problem and it's one NCAA can fix.

    This is a college wrestling award therefore the senior national wins do not count. Snyder never won the Hodge because he chose international over college. Lee had a chance to wrestle the 2 seed twice and failed to show each time. Don’t reward not showing up.

    He defaulted at the Midlands, missed a couple duals. Give it to the guy who showed up.

    Should have been Moore. Make these guys wrestle, not these short schedules. Bad precedent is now set.

    So from what I read he was checked out by the tournament medical staff prior to as he was feeling a little "peekish".  He did not have the specific symptoms that spring going from normal testing to the coronavirus testing, so they cleared him.  Then during the game he began feeling worse so he removed himself and went to the hospital.  They ran a full battery and came back positive for Flu A.

    I hope you are right. 
    My shoulders are busted from wrestling. I’m always shocked when guys can perform at this level with shoulder issues. It is incredibly painful.

    Just parroting what others are saying at this point.  I have heard these same conspiracy theories since this started.  Maybe they can have Alex Jones weigh in as a guest caller!

    No one is forcing you guys to  watch folkstyle wrestling.  We already have freestyle.  If you like it so much, spend your time watching it and discussing it on the freestyle forums.  It's great to have different styles to enjoy.

    I think edge of the mat takedowns and wrestling for takedowns in general is more exciting than pushouts (unless a scoring table gets in the way...).  I get freestyle fans see it differently.  I know they sigh and groan everytime action goes out of bounds but many folk fans sigh and groan when watching freestyle and seeing someone run an opponent off the mat when they have a single elevated.   I'm not sure one preference is objectively any more valid than the other.   I actually like the new rules in folk despite the inconsistency.

    i love the takedown where a guy catches a guy trying to escape and gets two
    edge wrestling is very exciting... 
    i can't think of any coach who ever said: stop wrestling on the edge. its a point... so just push them out.
    or its a point so you have to run back to the center
    beyond that... it is supposed to be stalling if I dont allow someone to circle in... how does that play into the step out. its not called in free either
    again, i say consistency and training refs is what needs to change.

    pushout or not
    there is still stalling/avoiding in freestyle.
    there always will be.
    my question: if i cant finish a single inside the circle with a leg up, am I stalling?
    b/c pushing someone out with the leg up isn't wrestling. finishing the takedown inbounds is wrestling.
    if the guys flees the mat, then I am weak. and if he flees the mat, I should get a point..that rule was made several years ago... helped ONE year... hasn't helped since... unless it has changed

    That sucks. I was hoping it would be a simple fix. I've never had that problem since the first time.  I was even able to watch four screen split with scores and names.
