    cem5202 reacted to irani in Women wrestling, my very controversial opinion   
    OK, so let me revise my suggestion:
     
    Keep the women's division, but don't deprive them of the opportunity to compete against men in free style and olympics championship.
    Just like if you are young wrestler, you can compete in the junir's championship, but if you are really good, you can compete in the seniors.
    I know that this does not apply to most women, but watching this young woman dominate her opponents is so inspiring to me, that I would like to see path/opportunity for some woman winning the olympics in the 45 Kg some day

    I'm 31 and while I don't post often, I do come to this site 4-6 days a week. During the off season, I make it to international board 1-2 days a week. I feel like I know a lot of you pretty well, even though most of you probably don't remember me ever posting. I have been coming here for about 12-13 years. I started when I was in college and a kid i went to HS with was wrestling for PSU. That all being said, I think the handle Lurker might apply to me better than it does Lurker.

    As someone in the 30-39 demographic, my narrative is that there are plenty of older folks that are reluctant to accept facts. And I believe more so than my generation. The "set in my ways" mentality.

    First Wisconsin should be given credit, especially the first half of their lineup. They came to wrestle. The second half seemed content in losing by less than expected. Bellying out and taking stall calls, while a smart way to not get pinned, is not coming to wrestle i.e at 157,184,197. That's why I like tournament wrestling better, you gotta let it fly. Who wants to stall their way out of a tournament.

    Old Marine wrestler mentioned Jake strayer... I was a freshman in high school when he was a senior. He whooped my ass all the time. When cael took over, I asked him what he thought of that and he said, " it's about four years too late." Jake graduated the year before cael took over. He is one of the nicest guys I've ever met. I think he could've been a top four type of guy under cael. Sorry for the irrelevant post but when I was a student at psu, I became a huge psu wrestling fan going to watch Jake.

    Nikko Triggas and I were both coaching at a tourney today and we discussed the 2008 dual at Ohio State when Jaggers pinned Jake Strayer with a defensive "spider" in the final match to win the dual by 3 for OSU (I flew out on the same flight as Nikko's parents).
     
    We both thought that was an incredible dual (he lost to Mark McKnight 7-5). This one tops that and I'm looking forward to talking with him about it when I see him in 3 weeks at our Section tournament.

    cem5202 got a reaction from BigTenFanboy in Is it time to get rid of the escape point?   
    BigTenFanboy, I like the scenarios you posit. I was already on the side that escapes should be worth a point, but I was willing to listen to possible benefits from the idea of eliminating that point. It seems like everything you said would deter mat wrestling. My favorite type of wrestling to watch is mat wrestling. It would absolutely stop people from choosing bottom. At first I thought, "well, maybe not because they may just work for a reversal", but, as you said, at the first sign of trouble the top wrestler will just release the bottom wrestler with no consequence. Then, i was agreeing that maybe an intentional release not being worth points could work if it was from a break in the action. You again made a wonderful point of how that would eliminate flurries at the end of periods to get an escape to tie or win a match along with a wrestler knowing he wouldnt be able to hold down his opponent basically forcing the wrestler to choose neutral without getting anything for it. I know I didn't add anything of value to this conversation. I'm just impressed with your ability to pick specific reasons why ideas are dumb.

    Snyder isn't wrestling nearly the athletes that Burroughs did.  Snyder is the best wrestler in college this season, but Burroughs was better as a TD artist. You just have to account for competition.

    Even pre-cael I preferred tourneys to duals. I don't care what his preference is on the matter. I love both. But to determine the better team, the tournament makes more sense to me. An upset doesn't have to swing the team score so much because you can fight your way back for third and score tons of points doing it (see aj schopp).

    A format where people can duck, hide, bump away, turtle up to "lose " good is not how I want my championships determined. So as fun as duals are they are not the way to determine a championship.
