This year, the officials constantly allowed wrestlers under attack to back straight out of bounds, sometimes with no effort what so ever to stay in bounds and wrestle. The officials often allowed those wrestlers to stand out of bounds to avoid wrestling. Stalling calls and warnings for this backing up and going out of bounds was almost never called. What could have been great matches with several takedowns and scrambles were reduced to riding time and escapes. And yet, in a month or two, many of these wrestlers will not step out of bounds at University Nationals or the US Open. I believe it is time for the one point to be awarded to you, if your opponent steps out of bounds. I saw one wrestler go out of bounds 17 times with no warning or being penalized. All the people sitting in my area started laughing at the officials for their ( always courtesy stall warning with 4 or 5 seconds left in the match) when one of the wrestlers clearly stalled almost the whole match. I have officiated both folkstyle and freestyle for nearly 40 years (as well as coaching for 40 years).
