  1. It seems like such a nitpicky thing to keep a guy of that caliber out of the tournament because he made weight 10 minutes after weigh ins ended, but I really don’t see any fair way of letting him compete other than to ask each person in the 97 kg bracket if they would have had a problem with Cox being able to wrestle... I don’t know if everyone would have signed off on that... my gut would say yes but who knows. I’m a big personal responsibility guy and this falls on Cox plain and simple, with that said I truly believe after hearing the details that it was an honest mistake and not that he should have been given a pass, we’ve all made mistakes and I’m sure when he realized that it was after the allotted time that he had one heck of a pit in his stomach... I know I would Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Only logical way I would say that Cox shoulda been able to wrestle was if everyone in the bracket would have agreed that it would have been ok.... meaning they would have had to sign the a waiver. Other than that you have to stick to the rules or otherwise there’s no end to what people will want to bend. I really like J’den and wish he and Snyder would have battled it out but I don’t understand how anyone really has a leg to stand on defending that he should have been allowed to compete. At the root of it all is a personable responsibility to 1. Be on time (which is at least 30 minutes early in my book) 2. Be on weight and don’t leave it a close cut.

  3. What an inspiring story, even if you know most of his journey I thought it was well worth the watch. https://www.olympicchannel.com/en/films/detail/rulon/film/rulon-five-rings-films/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. He was wearing these, I have the same pair signed by Brock Lesnar Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I don’t think anyone would be opposed to more stalling calls as long as they were consistent in how they call them. Maybe I’m wrong but more stall calls to me would force guys to want to have a bigger lead if they want to hold on at the end. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. It’s not your first it is the first one of the match would get 3. To me it would spur guys to want to score first. I can’t see with that scoring system though guys wanting to score right away then try to coast, stalling would need to be called more aggressively and consistently which I think most of us would be in favor of more stall calls to ensure there’s always action Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I would be fine with the first td being worth 3 then the rest is 2 And a 20 point tech Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. This argument is dumb, Iowa won the title I don’t care if PSU won 6 individual titles the NCAA awards the team title to the team with the most points... BTFB everyone understands your logic even though it’s not correct and guaranteed if PSU had won the team title you’d be bragging about that. I don’t have a dog in this fight and again I can’t believe I’m defending Iowa but they are the champs. I would think BTFB could get more of a rise out the Iowa supporter because Iowa’s team title comes with two high level transfers and mostly Pennsylvania studs but hey that’s just me Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Well that is kind of done with the placement points and I agree I don’t like giving max points for med forfeit you’d run into the issue of guys med forgetting to protect points if you took it away. I’d be in favor of changing consolation bonus points scale Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I think 4 point near fall has done a lot for guys with superior top game to incentivize turns, to me it’s done what it was supposed to do... with that said it ends some matches too soon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I agree it’s what’s both awesome about the sport and the downfall...scoring going up would make it more entertaining. I personally love the idea of 4 point near fall when it was introduced but now it seems to devalue the tech. I know it’s a different point than you were making but I’d like to see a 20 point tech now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
