    Pro tip: Wrestling coaches are former wrestlers and generally are bigger/heavier/stronger than you. If you absolutely have to attack a coach after an event, focus on basketball, baseball and soccer coaches.

    Having been involved in wrestling for over 50 years I can safely say that the behavior of the wrestlers, fans and coaches is worse than ever and does not appear to be getting better.

    Ignore, justify, rationalize all you want but behavior is getting worse.  Encouraging the antics at the college level has an effect; couple that with the rabid idiocy of parents and coaches seen at youth meets and you'll see more of this.  At least we're not in Dagestan, where guns would have been drawn.  At least not yet.

    What a lawless society-things are going downhill. Can’t believe somebody would post HS wrestling news in the college section. What is the world coming to.

    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

    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.

    Jasonmitchell32 got a reaction from andegre in 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

    Thought he was very bad. Shane Sparks says something stupid-- does that a lot-- and Hrovat agrees.
    Also very low energy and does not know basic facts about non-US wrestlers.

    It doesn't seem to be a studio thing.  Volume is all over the place on the podcast.  I can barely hear some of the people on FRL. Drives me nuts when I have to turn the volume up when one person is speaking and then turn it down when the next person speaks.  Different people at different volume levels is quite frustrating.  You need to find a way to make the volume level consistent between the different people speaking.  
     
    Also, is there a standard for recording volume?  My car volume goes from 1-40.  Most podcasts I listen to on level 20-25 for volume.  When I listen to FRL, I usually have to turn it up over 30 or more.  Recently 35-40.  Scares the !@#$ out of me when I forget to turn it down before switching to a different show or the radio!  I enjoy the content but this needs fixed.
     
    I know you call in nowadays and the sound from you is almost inaudible.  I listen to lots of podcasts that people produce from their houses.  They have people call in and the volume level is not markedly different.

    It’s called StateS b/c there are multiple classes being contested, thus plural. Yes - one who wins is a State Champ - but when you qualify, you are going to States. Just like you go to Regionals, or NCAAs; it is a conference tourney b/c it’s only one conference competing, but the Big Tens b/c multiple teams are competing at multiple weights.  
    It’s basically an abbreviation - State Championships or just States.
     
    I won NCAAs, or, I’m an NCAA champ.
     
    The Eagles are Super Bowl Champs - they won the PlayoffS. What’s the difference?
