    How to stop medical forfeits?

    How about this. Medical forfeit out of a tournament and you no longer "place" in that tournament unless you take start an official match and take a forfeit loss.. Ex Nolf and Kemmer in 2018. Nolf reached the semis and med forfeited to 6th place, but took no losses. In order for Nolf to finish 6th, he must start and forfeit the matches he did not wrestle in. If he withdraws from the tournament, no placement points go to the team, only advancement and bonus earned up until that point. Bump up all lower placing wrestlers up 1 spot. Example the 7th place finisher now becomes the 6th place finisher including placement points, etc. Also, get rid of the at large bids for NCAAs. You must outright qualify for NCAAs. This will discourage withdrawing from a conference tournament after reaching a placement round. As for duals, not much you can do about it as coaches are capable of sending out a backup.

    Lucas Byrd to Illinois

    Will people complain that Byrd left Maryland like they did when Taylor left ISU?
  5. Pretty humble guy, makes zero excuses about losing to Mehki Lewis and Alex Marinelli and gives tons of credit. Mentions the possiblity of going down to 157!

    I believe the family also moved right before Spencer started high school.

    ?? Ok so I'll interpret that as you didn't know.

    JB certainly jumped several levels each year he competed in college.

    He said he was very doubtful and feels comfortable at 165 but he did think about it.

    When he made the finals against Metcalf and to be quite honest during his junior year as well, I honestly had no doubt in my mind that Metcalf would dominate him. I feel like they could wrestle that match 100x over and over again and Metcalf would have won all 100x. To me the gap between Metcalf and Jenkins was huge.

    At this point we're splitting hairs, but I just feel like Suriano is better due to being a legitimate NCAA threat all 3 years of his career thus far. I cant say I ever felt Jenkins was a legit threat until his senior year.

    Suriano doesn't really wrestle freestyle, so that's not much of a factor there imo. At similar stages in their career I would say Suriano is better than Jenkins.

    I haven't looked deep enough into 2018 125 to determine if it was a tougher bracket than 2008 149, but I do believe that 2019 133 was tougher than 2008 149.

    I don't consider Hawaii "my" state, but my cousin's husband did grow up there.

    I agree tremendously with that last part. He wrestled quite a bit during the ball grab clinch time. also the potential for 4 min matches hurt his since he heavily relied on his gas tank to beat guys. Metcalf was always one of my favorites.

    Ok. Thanks for the classification. When you said you firmly disagreed with me when i said I felt he was better as a junior than as a soph and that he was at his best in 2008 I interpreted that to mean you felt he was better as a sophomore than as a junior. as for plateauing... do you think he improved from his college career to his international senior level career? or was he the same?

    ok so.. Soph = Junior... slightly teensie, weensie, tiny, ittie, bittie, weaker Senior year? Personally I felt he was the best college version of himself as a junior.

    You firmly disgreed when i said Metcalf was better as a junior than as a sophomore. and said he was "at his best in 2008" Now you're saying he was the same as a soph and junior.

    FYI I'm of the opinion that Metcalf was better as a junior than as a sophomore.

    I already acknowledged that when I said " even if by a tiny margin"
