    Lamont was the #17 NCAA seed at 133 in 2020 when the NCAA toruney was not wrestled.

    I’ve been waiting to see bottom guys throw a hand in-bounds when the count gets to 3-4 to finish the count when top guy thinks it will stop.

    From the top position, when both wrestlers are on their feet, shoving out of bounds should be call stalling.

    In my view, at 184, Aaron Brooks kept shoving Myles Amine out of bounds while riding from the standing position. I found it surprising the ref only called one stalling on him. A couple seemed blatant. I don't fault Brooks. It the ref lets you do it, keep doing it. 
    Shoving someone toward the edge of the mat instead trying a mat return should be called also. It is an attempt to force someone toward the edge of the mat, so when the bottom guy tries an escape, the action goes out of bounds.
    Also, I find it particularly annoying when the top man has 1 foot in, the bottom wrestler and is not in danger of being turned for a near fall, and completely out of bounds. The top guy waits for the 4-count, and then takes his toe out. No scoring can occur; it just gives the top guy a few more seconds of riding time. Itt should be called out of bounds when no one has the chance to score.

    118 is 125, it’s the difference between a 24 hour recovery from weighing in and one hour.  I am always  flabbergasted that people cannot grasp this. We cannot start a weight class just for Bobby Weaver and Tim Vanni.

    I think college wrestling should implement an 11th weight class for light heavyweight. Around 220 - 225.
    I think it would be a strong weight class.  Quite a bit of talent

    With USA Wrestling's new rules in place, and no vaccine or treatment that everyone trusts, should wrestling start next season in the spring?

    Badger Fan got a reaction from jon in Rankings Websites - Who's Your Favorite?   
    Here are some of my comments:

    Win Magazine - Content has improved this year in my view. Great source for articles and rankings. Still offers a magazine. 
    Wrestle Stat - DI and DII Ratings, Starters, non-starters, RPI. Awesome Website for comparisons.Ranking include all wrestlers. The winner predictions are fun!
    The Open Mat - Now has Top 33 DI Rankings and Top 16 DII Rankings - the number of wrestlers that go to the NCAA tournament.
    Intermat - I personally like their rankings the best. Coverage for DI, DI, DIII, NAIA, NJCAA.
    FloWrestling - The amount of video coverage is unbelievable. Rankings sometimes seems too reactive. Arena is easier to find tourneys than Track.                         Trackwrestling - Improved Video, Nationwide tournament and duals, Top 33 DI rankings, excellent articles.                                                                                                 Amateur Wrestling News - Was traditionally the best years ago. Like their rankings, offers magazines.
    Pirate - Like the team, individual calculations. Breakdowns starters/nonstarters and rank all of them but helps identify where a wrestler stands against starters. Not always easy to find the information at the word press website though

    Frustrated we need subscriptions separately from each outlet; wondering if some of them could have a combined subscription?

    Wrestling has a crazy number of websites that provide college rankings, including
    Win Magazine, Wrestle Stat, The Open Mat, Intermat, FloWrestling, Trackwrestling, Amateur Wrestling News - I think that is all of them
    Who's your favorite? Each of them seem to have their advantages....

    At the first home dual meet of the season, the Wisconsin Badgers unveiled a word printed front and center on the wrestling mat - bELIeve. The letters ELI are capitalized for Eli Stickley, the Badger wrestler who tragically passed away this past summer. After the unveiling, there was a moment of silence in honor of Eli. 

    It was the greatest tribute to a person I have ever seen in my entire life.
