    DanGerMan reacted to Elevator in EIWA Pre-seeds   
    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.

    Mineo has no idea what he's talking about. I was on the call. One of the coaches saw the tweet. Everyone laughed at him.
    They're under contract for, I believe, another 3 years.

    Honest question. I have the same demographics as Casper.   Nowadays I often  see people take opponents down where the opponent is on their hip partially facing the guy that just took them down.   WHY DOESN'T THE WRESTLER IN CONTROL THROW A HALF?  I see this in international wrestling all the time.  Is there some unstoppable roll through we didn't know about back in the day?

    Great. The refs agree with me and will continue to hit athletes with 1 point penalties. So if those athletes want to be hard headed about it, they can keep spotting their opponents points.

    DanGerMan reacted to Schuteandscore in Vito vs Glory match - back trip penalty   
    While coaching I witnessed a terrible ankle break from this mat return on several different occasions, same technique.  The forward pressure from the legs, coupled with the reverse pressure pulling the wrestler back has a tendency to catch the feet/ankle underneath and it isn't pretty.  I have seen it work without that happening of course, but have seen it at least enough times to believe that the technique has a higher likelihood of that type of injury.  The bad part is, I believe 2 of the 3, the injury was so bad, it ended their high school careers, thus their entire careers.  I just don't see the subjectivity piece.  If they are going to call this, at least call it no matter what, whether the legs are planted or not, either way it can cause the same injury, why leave any interpretation or subjectivity to this?  It just confuses wrestlers and puts others in jeopardy to make it legal dependent on a few changes.

    What's his record at 197?  Hint:  it's 49-6 (with 24 pins, six TFs, and nine majors:  more than a 75% bonus rate), with an injury default (that he was going to get at least a TF in), three NCAA losses (after reaching the semis) with a fractured spine that kept him out the next year, an early season loss his freshman year that he avenged later that year with two majors, and a loss when he had the flu (Whitman).  He destroyed current #8 Pat Brucki the last time they met.  He pinned current #7 Steven Buchanan in the first period.  He majored Willie Miklus (with over six minutes of riding time).  He beat Kyle Conel (who took 3rd at NCAAs that year).  He beat Shakur Rasheed.  He was ranked #3 before the NCAAs were cancelled (which means he was "AA" in both of the seasons in which he competed).
    While Cardenas has a chance to be elite, Darmstadt was, by every measure, elite at 197.  No way that a healthy Darmstadt loses to Cardenas, sorry.  There's a reason that everyone started taking neutral against him, and him taking top against them.  The stuff he pulled made him one of the most enjoyable wrestlers to watch.
