  1. All levels of wrestling need to constantly change and innovate to keep the sport exciting! Look at the NFL rule changes in the last few years to make the game safer, produce more scoring, and shorten the length of games. The NNFL owners want to even get rid of the extra point. I think the NCAA Wrestling Rules Committee should put everything on the table for discussion, every year. Change is good. When wrestlers and coaches learn how to game the current system of rules change them. It's in their nature to adapt to the set of rules presented them. Want more scoring? Change the rules!!! The lesson of professional sports on this topic is clear. Football v. Baseball (Which sport has more rule changes in the past 10 years?)

  6. Some great Wrestling Mindset Tips for early this season. 1. Recharge your battery in between rounds. Detach yourself emotionally and mentally from other matches during the day. Don’t watch too much wrestling. Get out of the tournament area when there is some time to do so. Leave the building and get some fresh air if you can. 2. Do not make the tournament into an event. You wrestle several matches each practice. This is no different. 3. Don’t spend too much time looking at brackets. (1) All you need to know is who you’re wrestling and your mat number. You do not need to read every name, since you will probably only wrestle 4 or 5 people there anyway. (2) Over-analysis of brackets leads you to “looking ahead” and playing “what if” scenarios in your head. (3) Brackets can make the tournament into more of an “event” which could add pressure.

  7. So as I alluded to in my post yesterday the 2014 Youth Olympic Games this year in Nanjing has been my introduction to amateur wrestling both of the Freestyle and Greco-Roman variety. I am watching this Greco-Roman qualifying Round Robin style tournament to see who will be competing in what place. An Armenian wrestler by the name of Zaven Mikaelyan absolutely dominated this tournament with three straight victories giving him an opportunity at the Gold medal which I hope to watch afterwards. His power game is unreal as he rag dolled a wrestler from the Dominican Republic in his first bout and would demonstrate his power again in the second bout. His third bout was my personal favorite thus far as I believe I really saw his technical acumen come to the forefront. He is just such an exciting wrestler to watch and I tried to find more video of him on Youtube but there were absolutely no results whatsoever which is disheartening. I can see this young man representing Argentina in the regular Olympics and taking home gold for them. Just a great athlete all around from my vantage point. Check him out in the Greco-Roman qualifiers: Match 1: 22:57 Match 2: 1:14:50 Match 3: 2:05:52
  8. Some guys have been talking for a while about alternatives to the singlet as a wrestling uniform. The most popular choice seems to be compression shorts with no shirt. Now, we are starting a petition to get this approved as an official uniform option. What do you think about alternative uniform options? Would you wear something like that if you had the choice? What do you wear in training? How do you think it would affect the perception and popularity of the sport?

  10. Wrestling calendar photo contest to help wrestling coach, transplant patient Memphis, Tenn., Sept. 2, 2014 – On June 12, 2014, Jacob Calhoun, 29, traveled to Fla. to compete in the Wrestling World Team Trials. He was a strong, healthy man, who not only competed, but was also the head wrestling coach at Muhlenberg College in Penn. After an outdoor workout, he became extremely dehydrated, suffered a heat stroke and lost consciousness. These issues led to liver failure, acute encephalopathy and a kidney injury. Doctors said a liver transplant was crucial to Calhoun’s survival. Thankfully, he received the lifesaving transplant on June 23, 2014. This sudden, unexpected health crisis has completely jarred the stability and normalcy of his life. Calhoun is grateful for the love and support of his parents, who have relocated to Florida to serve as his caregivers while he recovers. It’s been difficult to be so far away from his family and friends, as most of his tight-knit support group is in Pa. and Wis. Wrestling has been a lifelong commitment for Calhoun; he loves coaching and competing at both the national and international levels. While going through months of rehabilitation, he won’t be able to participate in the sport, and he’s already anxious to return to coaching. Volunteers are producing a 2015 calendar showcasing elite and up-and-coming wrestlers and coaches in all areas of the sport, and they are accepting photos & applications until Oct. 15. Proceeds from the calendar will be provided to the National Foundation for Transplants (NFT) in honor of Calhoun to assist with his transplant expenses. Submission of photographs that display and celebrate a love of wrestling are encouraged. Full details can be found at www.jakecalhoun.org. The average liver transplant costs approximately $575,000. Even with health insurance, he still faces significant medical expenses related to the surgery. He will need a lifetime of follow-up care and daily anti-rejection medications. These medications are very costly, and they’re as important to his survival as the transplant itself. To help alleviate the financial burden, Calhoun and his family turned to NFT for assistance with some of these financial burdens. NFT is a nonprofit organization that helps patients raise funds to pay for transplant-related expenses. “My heart goes out to Jake,” said Samantha Palazolo, NFT fundraising consultant. “This has all happened so quickly and been such a frightening experience, but I’m hopeful that things will only get better from here. It’s amazing to see how many people are rallying around Jake and doing everything they can to help emotionally and financially. At NFT, we’re dedicated to helping him raise the funds he needs to focus on his health and happiness, not the medical expenses.” For more information about the calendar event, please contact Teri Jakob at 717-304-3746 or wrestler2015calendar@gmail.com. To make a tax-deductible donation in honor of Calhoun, please send a contribution to the NFT Florida Transplant Fund, 5350 Poplar Ave., Suite 430, Memphis, TN 38119. Please be sure to write “in honor of Jacob Calhoun” on the memo line. Secure donations also can be made online at www.transplants.org--select “Find an NFT Patient” to locate Calhoun. About NFT NFT is a nonprofit 501©(3) organization based in Memphis, Tenn. that has been helping transplant patients overcome financial obstacles since 1983. NFT provides fundraising expertise to transplant patients by organizing fundraising campaigns in the patients’ own communities. NFT’s fundraising campaigns have generated nearly $65 million to assist patients. NFT assists more than 2,500 transplant candidates and recipients nationwide. For more information about NFT, please call 800-489-3863 or visit www.transplants.org. ###
