    They should not allow multiple points on the same hold. That's the rule in folkstyle and it makes sense.

    No, McFadden was on his knees while lifting Nolf.
    I dunno, I’m still not crazy about FS rules in general.  If nothing else I think a tech should be 15 like folk.  These 30 second techs because someone gets a takedown then rolls around a few times are kinda dumb IMO.

    DanGerMan reacted to Idaho in App State Coach JohnMark Bentley says Millner was being recruited at NCAA's   
    You can "want" to go anywhere you want but that doesn't make it happen. If you were only recruited by those two schools, then that's reality. 
    Baseball players can't just leave - they  have to be a free agent. Doesn't work. The difference is the athlete goes into the portal by their own account - not teams coming after them beforehand. Big difference. Even MLB has tampering rules. If they want to test the waters they can go into the portal. On a separate but related note, I still believe in loyalty - the idea that you stick with the one who got you there. If you weren't recruited by big schools - then someone else took a chance on you and developed you into the wrestler and person you have become.

    I think Wade Schalles should be on this list. He gets credit for inventing the spladle and was known as the Plastic Man.
    And, although his resume has been shortened by injury, Ben Darmstadt sure fits the description.

    Thank you for the effort. Noticed that AJ Burkhart of Lehigh is listed as a New Yorker. He did wrestle in NY at Waverly initially then went across the border into PA to wrestle in Athens to finish up his HS years.

    Here's a quote from the Flo people to lead up to their forecast, "Team points are calculated using hypothetical tournament points based on individual weight class rankings. Dual meet results are not factored into the rankings, nor are subjective opinions considered. "
    I think the difference between your numbers and Flo's is due to you are using the seeded number and Flo is using the ranked number.

    DanGerMan reacted to Elevator in If Max Dean Had Not Quit Cornell   
    The word "quit" in the title is unfairly perjorative.  A wrestler with top talent (who had made the NCAA finals) and very high goals decided a different top program was a better fit and, within the rules and after not being permitted to compete by his school and its league last year, transferred and won a spot on the top team's lineup.

    You might want to check that. All the bylaws say is you have to be enrolled full-time in the school. And that you can only transfer to the school where you live. And that would only make sense if you could enroll away from home.

    The guys who earned the four qualifiers spots for the EIWA @ 149: Fongaro, Diakomihalis, Brignola, Artalona
    OG did not earn one.  If he qualifies at EIWA it will be because he wrestled well enough for a spot earned by another conference wrestler. But here you are again are taking internent potshots at the wrestlers and the teams that found a way to garner a spot. They did so not by some unseemly process, but by following the rules to get Artalona enough matches to get a qualifier.  The spot he earned is a qualifier for the EIWA that may innure directly to the benefit of your man OG.  Those matches were not :01 defaults.  He wrestled rostered NCAA wrestlers and was doing so only because he had his own injuries and Penn too had covid cancellations, including Oregon State and VA Duals.
    Your reference to FLO - which does some good work and also is often a mouthpiece for complete knuckleheads spewing clickbait  - is unavailing.  Following the rules is not "matchfixing."  Extra countable matches are a path under the ules for this purpose. If the NCAA wants to avoid extra countable matches (in a year with covid cancellations) they should issue clearer rules and guidelines and probably lower the number from 15 in view of a global pandemic and a number of cancelled competition dates through no fault of the wrestlers.  
    Finally, in view of his rough year of injuries, maybe OG fans should be grateful that he is well and has a chance to wrestle for an AQ spot at EIWA or to earn an at large bid?  Instead, you have whined repeatedly with baseless accusations demonizing others on a public forum without any reasonable basis and even after many posts pointed out the false premises of your accusations.  Sad.
