    Easy for me to say, but they should move the meet up to give them enough time for quarantine.

    There is unrest in the forest
    There is trouble with the trees
    For the maples want more sunlight
    And the oaks ignore their pleas The trouble with the maples
    And they're quite convinced they're right
    They say the oaks are just too lofty
    And they grab up all the light
    But the oaks can't help their feelings
    If they like the way they're made
    And they wonder why the maples
    Can't be happy in their shade? There is trouble in the forest
    And the creatures all have fled
    As the maples scream, "oppression"
    And the oaks just shake their heads So the maples formed a union
    And demanded equal rights
    "The oaks are just too greedy
    We will make them give us light"
    Now there's no more oak oppression
    For they passed a noble law
    And the trees are all kept equal
    By hatchet
    Axe
    And saw

    Or the social media versions of hatchets axes and saws.  I just heard this Rush song "Trees" this morning and found it pertinent to what is going on now.

    In 1918, during the Spanish Flu, the treatment for the flu was bloodletting, and laxitives.  Probably better to not to see a doctor.

    P5 schools that have big football (and to a lesser extent basketball) programs don't charge student fees that go towards supporting sports. So if we miss a football season, some B10 and other P5 schools might be in trouble.

    I've always been in favor of Phoenix.  Good weather, easy to get to, also supports college wrestling in the West.

    Been to many NCAAs, OKC was by far the worst experience.  I was prepared to be disappointed in Des Moines, but thought they did a nice job.
     
    It'd be nice if this whole analysis included one trip west every decade. I'd think Portland (Rose Garden, with OSU hosting), and/or Phoenix (ASU), especially if Zeke gets the Sun Devils turned around.

    I did some investigating and found an “Iowa Interpretation” that covers this situation. It’s not in the rule book, but it’s an interpretation used in Iowa. (In Missouri we used to have a Leg Riding or Head and Arm Interpretation.)  So Gilman was called for the slam, but Waters was called for an illegal move according to the Iowa Interpretation.  Art. 5 explains the reversal.

    Sec. 7 Art 4.:
    a. If in the sudden victory 30 second tiebreaker period wrestler “A” is in the advantage position and in the judgment of the referee appears to be able to ride out wrestler “I” in the defensive position, a visual count shall be started by the referee. If the count reaches 5 seconds, wrestler “A” will be called for stalling without hesitation.
    b. In the situation described in (a.) above, if for any reason the referee cannot reach a 5 second count, the match shall be stopped and wrestler “A” penalized for an illegal hold. Wrestler “I” will be awarded one point.
    c. The referee signal for this special situation shall be an immediate punch to the back the head of wrestler “A” without hesitation.

    Sec. 7 Art 5:
    a. If in the sudden victory 30 second tiebreaker period with wrestler “A” in the advantage position and wrestler “I” in the defensive position, wrestler “I” may apply a head lock with or without the arm encircled.
    b. In the situation described in (a.) above, as soon as wrestler “I” touches the side of his body to the mat, the referee shall award reversal immediately and start the count for near fall criteria without hesitation.
