    Katie reacted to Molsen in Nebraska at Penn State   
    It was the only time they have wrestled, in high school atleast, and Red was the one that went up in weight. The year before Red won at 126 and Lee won at 132.

    A lot of problems would be solved if we just switched to freestyle. It’s a much better product.

    If anyone cared about casual fans, collegiate wrestling would look a lot more like freestyle.

    If you remember 2009 Burroughs as being comparable to 2018 Hidlay, then we are remembering two different things.

    As long as an athlete complies with the rules, I have no objections.
    A second issue is the culture surrounding folkstyle wrestling. It appears to me to be dominated by moralism, provincial arrogance, Evangelical Christianity, conformity, and a suspicion of emotions. Not everyone’s cup of tea.

    4:10 was probably the worst offense in this match, but also several instances of gestures/whining because Colucci was stalling (which he was, but some of the time Gable wasn’t doing much either).
    There may not be any one thing he’s done that’s been egregious, but it certainly seems like a trend at this point. I definitely don’t love it, but it does seem like he kinda wants to be the villain so if it gets more people interested (likely to root against him) then I guess it’s not the worst thing in the world.

    Katie got a reaction from cornercoach in Folkstyle moves that should be banned   
    I wouldn't ban any moves that are currently allowed. But I would make two changes:
    Adopt the step-out rule. That will do a lot to address the stalling problem from neutral. Award a point for 30 seconds of riding, then stand them up unless the top guy has secured a pinning combination. These two simple rule changes would make folkstyle much more fun to watch.

    Cenzo still has a shot at being a four timer. But I agree with your overall sentiment. Lee is a rare talent, and his chances at four titles look good.

    I would add at third. Casey on the staff. He leaves and Penn State drops a notch or two.  Quality assistants are worth their weight in gold.

    Interesting topic.
    Personally, I don't understand combining NCAA achievements and freestyle achievements. Not only are they different styles, they are totally different levels.
    I also think that the number of world/Olympic golds should be the most important criteria. I'd also remember
    the boycott in '80; the boycott in '84; the breakup of the Soviet Union in '92 the reduction to eight weight classes in '97 the reduction to seven weight classes in '02 the increase to eight weight classes in '14 the increase to ten weight classes in '18
