    Force118 reacted to BigTimeFan in Will the NCAA test for COVID-19?   
    They absolutely should but the issue is there aren’t enough tests available to test every athlete. The criteria right now in some places is you have to have a fever and then have to get a flu test and only then can you get the test. 
     
    EDIT: It would seem unfair to test a bunch of college athletes who aren’t at risk when you could use those tests to test elderly and truly at risk folks. The tests are in short supply.

    I asked this before, but: Wouldn't wrestlers be the MOST likely to transmit the disease to an opponent (compared to basketball players or soccer players)?

    Fair enough. It would be equally ridiculous if a small town attorney who primarily does divorces tried to pass themselves off as an expert in a capital case. It’s a problem in every field and it’s extremely dishonest.

    Oh come on. The dude checks skin lesions and does allergy testing. Like any field  there are levels to this. Read about him online he passes himself off as a world renowned specialist. He went to UMKC and probably finished his boards just a few years ago. WHO has specialists in deadly diseases not pollen allergies.

    If you listened to the FRL where they went over the EIWAs, you can tell they don’t really follow the EIWA.  There was not even a mention of Jared Prince returning at 149 and the crazy implications that would arise.

    Force118 got a reaction from jon in Flo's Rankings are atrocious!   
    To be fair the ranker(s) at Flo don’t have a ton of experience. They basically seed the B1G really well at the start of the season and adjust guys up or down based on how they did against their initial rankings-which they then weigh too heavily.
    They had Colbray ranked way too high and immediately after Nelson beat him they moved Brands into the top 5. The proper way would be to move Nelson into the top 15-20 and drop Colbray considerably.
    I don’t think they watch much tape on those ranked 15-25. I’d be surprised if they have ever seen most of the 2nd tier guys outside the B1G. Yesterday, they said there were a ton of upsets at conference tourneys but its also possible they just suck at rankings.

    Yes - Like @Force118 said - it's expensive but when you are pulling in 13k per month, plus insurance, retirement, etc. it's a pretty nice living. 
     
    OSU is a very good job - Nice town to live in  - 45 minutes to the Oregon Coast - fully funded program - nice practice facility - newer locker rooms - all the starters are back next year an Willits comes off redshirt. It's a nice situation.

    Would a push-out many of you are advocating for only apply to neutral? Awful easy to push a guy out of bounds on a standup and his back is to you.

    Think about this for am moment.  Wrestler A is on top, Wrestler B on bottom, whistle blows to start the action, Wrestler B comes to his feet. Wrestler A is holding on, but the come close to the edge....and Wrestler A lets go of Wrestler B, giving up the escape, and then drives him out of bounds, getting a 1-point push-out...and thus negating the escape point. 

    As someone mentioned, no matter how well you write the rule, someone will find a way to game it to their advantage.

    Force118 got a reaction from hammerlockthree in Camacho a new contender at 125?   
    Idk. 125 is a hot mess after the top 4. Lots of guys could get in there including Camacho. Mueller will probably make it to Lee in the semi’s and secure an AA but depending on who is ranked 5th could just as easily lose in the quarters; and on the backside anything can happen. Also, depends on Camacho’s seed. I think he lost to Medley and Schwarm this season so may have a rough road to AA.

    Bold Prediction: The Crescent Valley High School head coach Chad Lamer. CV had 10 champs in class 4A and he is the volunteer assistant at Oregon State this year. Ask anyone who follows Oregon high school wrestling and they will say he is a good recruiter too. He would undoubtedly stop the exodus of any and all Oregon talent.

    Force118 got a reaction from WF89 in Updated NCAA Predictions - What we've learned   
    Steveson absolutely outclassed Parris. The only reason it seemed close is the 1 point net for each takedown and subsequent escape. These boys are massive so regardless of the shape they are in, they will gas if they spam shots and attacks. Also given their size a simple mistake means match over. Not you, but there is a ridiculous narrative that Gable is lazy and that he could get a takedown if he wants it but chooses not too. This is blatantly false. Watch his set ups and attacks he is methodical and patient. He forces nothing. You can’t expect a heavy to wrestle like ADS.

    Force118 reacted to Full Nelson in Evergreen: rule changes wanted   
    You aren't a wrestling fan if you aren't sure you know how to fix some things. 
    Here are my pet peeves.
    1)  Made the takedowns 3 points.  No brainer.  Escapes are too relatively easy.
    2)  Make back points 2, 3, 4  according seconds of exposure.  The problem now is refs
          aren't making an effort to count.  They hand out 4-points any time a guy is exposed
           for longer than 2 counts.  Back point inflation has turned the sport into a cheap-tilt contest.
    3)  The rules for stalling on the edge of the mat remain a hot mess.  Worse than ever.
          Got to come up with something/anything consistent.   Maybe just adopt the FS
          pushout rule and see if it works in folkstyle context.  What's the worst that can
          happen?  Dogs sleeping with cats?
