  1. Only having 6 weight classes has screwed up Olympic wrestling, IMO. Too many guys wrestling at inappropriate weight.
  2. There is no app called "Olympic Chanel" Is it part of NBC Sports app?
  3. Ding Ding Ding Plus trading 2-for-1 is such a bad exchange in college wrestling. Gotta make TDs 3 points. There seems to be a lot of consensus on this yet it never happens.
  4. A lot of truth in what you say here. I think the unsolvable problem is the dearth of competitive matches. 80% of the time you know who is going to win.
  5. A duals tournament with nothing at stake has been tried many times. Declaring the winner the national champion is new and changes everything.
  6. I don't see the argument that the boundary rules in freestyle are more aggravating than the cluster we see in folkstyle. Even if you dislike the pushout rule, the pushout seems to be a relatively small factor in freestyle. I'm sick of defensive wrestlers constantly playing the edge of the mat to stall. None of the attempts at rule changes seem to have made anything clearer or better. Wrestlers constantly going out of bounds in escape attempts is tedious as hell.
  7. On twitter lots of people are screaming for a step-out rule in folk style. Do they mean adopting the freestyle rules on pushouts?
  8. I like what you are trying to do. A problem is that seeding is so imperfect. Do we really want to give more weight to that process? The way to make the the regular season matter is to make duals determine the national championship. Team records would seed an 8-team tournament. The NCAA final tourney should just determine individual championships. It would be just as exciting, and we'd be adding many weeks of exciting events. This is too much change for a lot of wrestling fans to accept.
  9. OK, thanks. With FOX constantly hyping their fight nights my perception was that interest in pro wrestling had faded. Plus there's twitter fights now.
  10. Why doesn't Steveson go MMA? Don't they make more money than WWE?
  11. Steveson was pudgy and small back then
  12. Parris wrestling like he is happy that score is close. No risk
  13. Gable is too good for college wrestling
  14. Who thinks Parris will force Steveson to break a sweat? I don't see Parris scoring more than escapes.
  15. This is quietly turning into one of the best finals in memory. The lack of crowd makes it seem less exciting.
  16. Hidlay & Brooks both got burned by bad calls, IMO.
  17. This Brooks-Hidlay match was the first bad match. Too many bad calls. Lotta inaction.
  18. How was that not 2 back points for Brooks? Ridiculous
  19. https://www.flowrestling.org/events/6777196-2020-bts-virtual-benefit The FLO event hub tells you everything you need to know except anything you need to know. When does the event stream?
  20. The teams still have to travel. Hmmm. Maybe a holiday tournament might be put in a well regulated bubble. But remember, some kids are learning online, others attending classes. Its gonna be costly. The availability of a vaccine is going to make sports work.
  21. FloWrestling @FloWrestling · 1m We’re aware of the issue with our stream and have paused wrestling as we work on a resolution.
  22. It's looking like we won't have sporting events of any kind until sometime in 2021, so the eligibility question is probably moot. Maybe we'll get lucky and get a vaccine super-early. Social distancing for a few months will not solve the virus problem to point where we can risk gatherings.
