    Suriano's headgear grab definitely stopped Fix

    If Fix and his coach were focused on wrestling, not the officiating, the outcome may have been different for Daton. Right before Suriano takes him down Fix is pointing at his head gear and stops wrestling. Cost him the match as Suriano took him down at that point. That's crap about the headgear affecting it - Fix stopped wrestling. Plus he didn't do much in the match anyhow. And karma is a b_ _ _ _. Payback for Suriano for what went on in Jan in the RAC with the BS officiating. Yet the rules do need a fixing - headgear, hands to the face. It should be for flagrant violations. IE, for headgear - the guys head needs to be pulled down or back - a very noticeable, violent pulling of the head via the head gear. Same for hands to the face. Give a warning, and than if the guy is really slapping the face, than hit him with the point. This is sissy crap what's going on. And the coaches are trying to game the system with all the challenges. And in the Suriano, Fix match, if I'm the ref, there is no way I'm making headgear call (he was on other side of it anyhow) in OT in a Nat Champ match. No way am I deciding and handling a title to a kid on a BS penalty. And can't even tell, and didn't appear Suriano pulled on it, if he did Fix's head would've come down - like a genuine facemask in the NFL. Suriano had hands on it. Anyhow - this is trivial. What I say prior stands.

    All Americans By State

    Interesting facts. PSU only had 2 of this years 16 AA's from PA. Rutgers (RU) had 2 of 10 from NJ. I've been all over RU that they need to recruit better and keep the studs at home. But Cael also isn't keeping most of the PA studs home at PSU. So recruiting isn't so much about keeping your in state studs at home. More about the school, reputation, program, coach, RTC, etc that is the main draw to a recruit. So for RU, not so much about keeping most of the in state studs at home (doesn't happen) but about being the best destination for the stud recruits. They have to up their game on this. Hate to criticize as I'm a fan but outside of Ash and Suriano, they are real thin, even with the recruits coming in. And it's been 10 years. Look at what Cael did in 10 yrs. And he went to PSU to keep the in state studs at home but he's built a dynasty and the best want in.

    ESPN

    Frustrating watching with ESPN -hard to find all the 'mats' thus channels. had to search all over the espn site for every session -a lot of sessions didnt come live until after the matches started and believe Sat there were no scoreboards until 141 -can't find 8 awesome wrestling announcers to cover the biggest event of the year? find the guy on 8 in a local bar? -no split screen. had to open multiple browser and flip back and forth I do pay for this so...sucks when you're biggest event of the year is flawed and again, work on finding announcers next time

    Rob Koll

    Very arrogant. Granted he was geared up for the impending match and bad time for an interview but not the first time he's been in front of a camera so being the 'CEO' of Cornell wrestling, he should know better what and what not to say publicly.

    Who is moving up next year?

    Will Suriano go up to 41? 25 and 33 should be insanely tough next year, regardless of who moves up so maybe him going up to 41 be a tad easier or Yanni staying at 41?

    Mekhi Lewis

    How did Lewis (from NJ) end up at VT and his HS team mate Glasgow ends up at RU? Would love to know the inside scoop on that! One is Nat Champ the other didn't even qual for the tournament (granted hurt but won't have the career Lewis will)

    Yianni gets it done again

    Poor officiating tonight across the board. Sorry refs - really need to up your game - you're hurting these kids who have so much on the line. McKenna wrestled the better match. Poor call at the end. And not overturning anything. The challenge, hands to face rules need to be changed asap. D1 officiating is getting like FS worlds - refs way to influential on the outcome.

    Suriano has the last laugh

    Been watching Nick here in NJ for years, especially the last 2 at RU. Interesting character. H'es got some issues, I hope he gets his head straight. Regardless, way to go Nick! So happy for you on winning the National Championship! A month ago I said no way would you win. I even told Donny - you have to work on your head and be a more complete wrestler (on top). You turned it around big time and got it done! Awesome

    ESPN

    Dear ESPN, It's a challenge to find these matches on your website. For instance, session 3 is on ESPNU and that you can see on your website. But if one wants to see all the mats, where do you find that? I've had to do a search for 'ncaa wrestling' on your site to find it. Appreciate the full coverage but is it that hard to find 8 decent broadcasters? I'm finally watching most in silence with the volume down because they're so bad, especially mat 8. Few tweaks and you'll get it right. At least you're way better than Flo!

    ESPN3 Split Screen Option

    I had to dig, some dropdown finally got to see all the mats but no splitscreen option AND also, where do you get mat assignments so you know who's up?
  15. Hi, Can someone give a feel for what a ticket should cost for say session 4, 5, or 6? Thinking about coming and buying from seller outside arena or maybe Stubhub. What is the true face value per session? Can this be figured being the ticket is initially sold by the book? Trying to get a sense what the going rate should be vs getting hosed. Thanks.
