    NCAA approves shorts

    Haven't they already done this by more people going to the compression shorts as opposed to the "short shorts" which used to be a lot more popular?

    I could be wrong but I thought they did have a choice?

    Fewer PA weight classes

    I'd also bet there were a lot more NCAA qualifiers at 197 or 285 that only started wrestling in middle or even high school compared to 125 and 133. Varsity letters shouldn't really be determined by age, they should be determined by ability. I'd bet there are almost as many if not the same amount of heavyweights that get varsity jackets because "of their size and willingness to wrestle" than 106's.
  4. According to Pyles on FRL, yes that is the case Start at around 8:45 on yesterday's episode: "They get the extension because they are not medically cleared to compete. You get the extension up to the date that the doctor says you can wrestle."
  5. I don’t think anyone would have a problem with them “bringing in studs” to do live matches. Regardless of how hard he’s wrestling, that’s still different from wrestling official international matches.
  6. Ok so back to the facts then, what more do you need to know before you feel you can make a judgement? He got a delay in the wrestle off because of a doctors note saying he was not cleared to compete until a certain date, but is competing somewhere else before that date. You don’t have any problem with that?
  7. Well you didn’t have a problem judging the other people criticizing it.

    Honestly, you really don’t know that this didn’t happen. We have no way of knowing if there was a kid who didn’t want to wrestle in 5th grade because of the singlet, then picked another sport and never thought about wrestling again. Even if it is just “fringe” kids, I think that’s reason enough to do it. Getting 1 “fringe” kid at a lot of schools will add up quickly.
  9. Not following you here. I don’t think there was much issue with the delay to begin with. The issue only came about because he decided he was going to wrestle before his apparent doctor’s note said he was cleared to.
  10. It’s the Internet, this is pretty much THE place for judging. People get criticized all the time despite “following the rules.” Are there rules against ducking or coaches challenging looking for a hands to the face call? No, but there was plenty of criticism when that happened last year.
  11. In general, you don’t see anything wrong with doing the same thing (or worse) than what you had previously complained about?

    Hopefully the shorts they use are better than the ones Flo used for WNO where everyone was just rolling them up and they looked kinda ridiculous.

    Zain - Yanni outcome?

    So you’re saying the NFL didn’t send the wrong NFC team to the Super Bowl last year?

    The NCAA change is more about the viewers IMO

    Compression shorts aren’t much different from singlets (and I think have been legal for awhile). But allowing non-compression shorts is a big change IMO.

    I was more thinking it could help NCAA viewership. Every time I've tried to watch them on ESPN with friends they make a comment about singlets. Although I guess for it to really make a difference a lot of teams would have to switch (well maybe just PSU...)

    Yeah I think people arguing against shorts in college are saying that these wrestlers don't care, which I'm sure is true. But in college it's probably more about gaining more fans, whereas high school it's more about gaining more wrestlers.

    Fewer PA weight classes

    The more than 1 106 wasn't the way I interpreted it, but who knows as I apologize I can't find where I read that. Obviously it's simple math that raising the lowest weight will reduce forfeits in the short-term (might as well change 285 back to Unlimited while we're at it), but I think the argument is that it might not in the long-term if you lose kids who don't think they will really be big enough for 110. I would like to think 4 lbs (although of course up from 103 previously) wouldn't make that much of a difference, but who knows. I think the big question as far as retention is relative to the effect on JV. Is 2 less weight classes really going to result in that many more JV matches? With less weights, will kids quit if they don't make varsity and thus the JV situation may not actually get any better?

    Not if Iowa wants to win a title

    Can't remember who, but someone on twitter posted a link to the data (I can't seem to find it at the moment) and called out about 106 and I believe 113 having the most forfeits. Someone replied and noted that within the same data, I believe it was HWT that actually had the least amount of people weigh in. Yeah pretty much this, although I guess I was under the impression they weren't counting more than 1 "weigh in" per weight/competition, but not sure. IME 106 is also a weight where it's not uncommon to see coaches "intentionally" forfeit to studs if their guy isn't very good.
  21. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with saying middle school wrestling is garbage. There are a lot of good middle school aged wrestlers. But from what I’ve seen they mostly just train at their clubs and rarely if at all with their actual middle school.

    I believe the data quoted from PAPower did state that 106 was the most forfieted, but that it did actually have more weigh ins than at least a couple of the upperweights
  23. I noticed Seth Gross seems to always be promoting the website “h1story” wrestling. I obviously don’t know if he’s even profiting from it at all and am not accusing him of it, but if he did, that would be a no no right?
