    Straps controversy

    Yep, but the strict interpretation of the rule is 1 point for each kid in violation. Ditty is a really good ref - he was put in a very bad spot bc the Hershey table guy called it out repeatedly, so he seems to have felt backed into a corner on it. Just last week I worked a table at the District III team duals and he was reffing - I gotta say, as soon as those matches ended, he made a beeline to the table and signed the books! PS - that's our HS coach being quoted in that article. The guy who wrote it never told Heckard he was going to quote him Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Desanto vs Teasdale

    They were both 13 at the time. The next year Teasdale won 82 and DeSanto won 97 (growth spurt!) Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    High School Wrestler Attacks Coach...Brawl Ensues...

    Unfortunately this is what's happening to the wrestling 'community'. Turning into the biggest meathead MMA wannabe gatherings. Just go to few big youth tourneys and you'll see. It disgusts me Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Fix vs Phillippi - Flo coverage..

    He didn't dig real deep - the match results were posted under "Results" not too long after the dual ended. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    So how are wrestlestat’s rankings determined?

    Sooooo...... Not much of a math guy here when it comes to that algorithm stuff so could take tell ya. Just was passing along what my understanding. Clearly it is not a full proof method bc there are tons of examples of anamolies. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    So how are wrestlestat’s rankings determined?

    As Zebra said - my understanding is that they are career rankings, not point-in-time rankings. So even tho Lee lost to Rivera, his total body of work (based on the algo) supports him still being the best active 125 overall What works be interesting is if that algorithm could computer best ever. Not sure it's possible to get all results all time, but that'd be cool to see Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    So long as we are trashing Rutgers...

    My dad and I saw a mountain like years ago up in Clinton County where our camp is. But "they aren't in PA" ..... Just like coyote weren't until there were so many that they were like "er..... Um..... What we meant was that there ARE coyote here in PA, and you can now shoot them pretty much anytime... But we still don't know how they got here...." Yeah, right Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Straps controversy

    Ok - just learned this tidbit of info today - apparently the Hershey (inital team that lost but then ended up winning) table person (each team gets a rep at the head table) was the one who pointed it out to the ref and would not let it go. The ref was kinda backed into a corner because it IS a rule and this guy was hammering the ref about it, so he apparently felt almost obligated to call it at that point.

    Straps controversy

    I live right down the road from Red Land, one of my good friends is a coach there and I know the ref. Here is what I'm told by people who were there (I was not) - the two wrestlers walked through the line shaking hands with singlets up and then after everyone had shaken hands and they were all walking back to their respective sides, they pulled down their straps. At this point, parents from both teams were already matside to see their kids and everyone there thought it was over over and we're shocked when they saw the scuttlebutt at the scorer's table and heard that the ref penalized RL twice for the singlets. I agree that you've got to enforce the rules, but at some point it's to much, right? The intent of this rule isn't for these situations. The dual meet us over, kids have shaken hands, parents are waiting to talk to the kids.... Keep in mind that this decision not only affects Hershey by putting them in the 8 spot for District team duals with a little over a week to go, but pushed back 2 other teams who were ahead of them and would have stayed ahead had Hershey lost - so there are 2 teams potentially negatively affected significantly.

    Fun Adam Batirov Fact

    I'm not sure I'd quote Wikipedia as "documented evidence"

    Crap - read it wrong! Glad I checked in real quick!

    Senior Worlds Team Scores

    That's the overall score with women. If you go to the top and click the dropdown that says "Scores", then you can pick individual styles. For the men, we are down 168 to 150 with only Snyder left to add 5 possible points.

    Don't they start finals at 130 Central? If so, he won't wrestled till the end, right?

    Huge mistake in Gilman match - coaches/refs

    Yeah - I was kinda wondering about that sequence (had a bit of a stutter during the feed as it happened). They showed Perry right after it happened and I thought for sure we'd see him hitting the buzzer but then he just kinda looked around, held up one and then the camera went back to the center of the mat

    Our singlets - yuck

    I kinda like them ....

    Reffing at Worlds...Dramatically better?

    You mean other than the JB / Chimazzo match? Others may disagree but I think the scoring went off the rails after the 2 and 2 for Red, no, wait 2 R, 1 B, no wait, Red gets nothing and Blue gets 2" sequence. Other than that, and Tedev pushing the ref when Rashidov lost (that ref was a bit flaky) from what I've seen, it's been pretty good How about that Bonnie 5, tho - that was sweet. I can't believe both Hrovat and Sparks were clueless about the scoring.

    Downtown Pittsburgh

    Strip district is only about a 5 min walk from the arena - not 20. That has the highest concentration of bars in close proximity but there are a lot of newer bars in town. The social scene in downtown is a bit spread out but you can practically walk from one end of town to the other in 10 mins. Also - you can get to the North Shore (by the stadiuns) easily.

    better career....

    OK - I will give it a shot. My thoughts are assuming they are all in the same high school classification (AA, AAA, etc): B - A - C - D (the last 2 are tough) Thoughts: B - 3 time qualifier, 2 time champ in 3 years on varsity - pretty good IMHO A - 4 time district champ and 3 time qualifier is impressive, but the lack of a gold puts him clearly behind B C - 2 time district champ and 2 medals, making it to finals once puts him ahead of D D - made the dance twice, winning once, but thats the only medal. I could see switching him with C, especially if it was C that he beat in that final he won

    “Push Out�

    Can we please stop calling it that - it’s a step out - there is a difference and the rules clarify this point - “if a wrestler clearly pushes his opponent out-of-bounds with no observable technique, no points shall be awarded (for e.g.-straight arm push-out). The “pushing” wrestler will be given an attention and told not to push anymore. Any subsequent “pushing” by the warned wrestler shall result in a caution and one point to his or her opponent for an illegal action.” The announcers today (John Smith included) kept referring to it as a push out too - kind of annoying especially since I was watching with a number of kids I coach in freestyle and it didn’t reinforce the intent of the rule after having gone over it at length at practice this week. Just sayin...... [/rant over]
