  1. Post clips of the moments that captivated you. Any time period. Any competitor. FS or GR. There were two jaw-droppers at the last Olympic Trials for me. The Dake Bomb to Nolf was right up there with Masvidal's flying knee to Askren... The second was a game of Catch-As-Catch-Can between Hancock and Amos... Hancock caught Amos on a slip throw and got him for four points! It appeared more impressive looking down from the upper bowl than it does here:
  2. Credit to Ivan for the post. I didn't expect it to be so soon, but the-sooner-the-better I guess. 57kg: Aryan Tyutrin vs. Zaur Uguev 74kg: Magomed Kurbanaliev vs. Zaurbek Sidakov 97kg: Abdulrashid Sadulaev vs. Vladislav Baitsaev all good matches without live-streams or recordings... Who do you predict to win? I think the safest bets are: Uguev, Sidakov and Sadulaev.

  6. ATT: Coaches - Men's War at the Shore - Freestyle and Folkstyle, Easter Friday and Saturday This year Atlantic Coast Wrestling has added a Men's division to the War at the Shore. The War at the Shore is always held on Easter Friday and Saturday at the Wildwoods Convention Center which is situated right on the beach in Wildwood, NJ. There will be a Men's Folkstyle tournament on Easter Friday (March 25) and a Men's Freestyle tournament on Saturday (March 26). The tournament is geared toward Post-High School adult wrestlers, but HS wrestlers are permitted to enter. The HS division is tough enough, so HS wrestlers are discouraged from entering this division. There will one set of weight classes for both tournaments, and one weigh-in on Thursday evening, March 24th. The weight classes are: 125, 135, 145, 155, 170, 185, 200 and 285 The cost to enter is $25.00 per tournament or $40.00 to wrestle both Freestyle and Folkstyle. For more details, and to register and pay online, please go to: www.AtlanticCoastWrestling.com or www.ShoreWar.com 2016_War_Mens Division_V2.1.doc
  7. A few different posters have mentioned that they believe freestyle offers a much more impressive product that folkstyle. I belong to that camp, too. The constant action, dynamic scoring, generally fan friendly and objective rules all keep freestyle wrestling exciting to watch. However, there are some foibles with the current rule set that FILA can iron out before Rio 2016: 1) Cautions as criteria- Several matches over the weekend left the crowd scratching it's collective head because, apparently, number of cautions takes precedent over last point scored. This one simple criteria blew a few matches, most notably the Bonne vs Lebedev fiasco. At 57kg, Lebedev scored twice via the 30-second shot lock, and Bonne scored once on the shot clock and once on a pushout. The match ended 2-2 and Lebedev despite the fact that Bonne was the only wrestler who scored offensively. The referee gave Lebedev both of his points via subjective judgement to win, while Bonne attacked and scored to lose. How cautions and criteria interact active discourages wrestlers to attempt to score. Bottom line: cautions should not be a tie-breaker criteria. 2) 30 Shot clock timer- Currently, if you get put on the shot clock and get into a scoring position as the 0:30 clock expires, the referee allows you an undefined amount of time to finish the attack before hitting you for passivity. This doesn't follow the same logic as the match clock, puts unnecessary subjectivity into the ref's hands and should be changed. When the match clocks ticks down (up, I guess?) to 6:00, the match ends no matter what- the ref cannot give you more time to finish an imminent attack. The most exciting moments in any sport come when a score just beats out the buzzer to win (see the 57kg finals), not when the attacker is given the benefit of the doubt, just because. That's how the shot clock should work. The idea of the shot clock is to take subjectivity out of stall calls by allowing the wrestler to objectively demonstrate that he is active. Bottom line: allowing the ref to fudge the 0:30 seconds is subjective and leads to less tense and exciting moments. 3) Repechage- Repechage currently makes no sense. Beating a dead horse much? Yes, but this is ridiculous. Looking at the same Bonne vs Lebedev match at 57kg again, how much sense does it make that Bonne had to pack up his shoes and go home because Lebedev lost a squeaker in the semis and eventually won the Bronze freaking Medal? The process of random draws and unbalanced brackets that FILA set up (to purposfully randomize the brackets and allow more fringe countries a chance to medal) forced Bonne into wrestling a Top 5 opponent in the second round. How fair is it to him that he doesn't get to wrestle just because he lost to the freaking Bronze Medalist? A similar thing happened to Herbert, albeit he didn't deserve to win his first match, but he lost to the man who eventually won a medal. Herbert deserved another chance to wrestle. Bottom Line: If we have to have repechage, at least the semi-finalists should pull their opponents back in. TLDR: Freestyle is in great shape. Two point take downs, neutral restarts, slightly more time in par terre, and the benefit of the doubt going to the attacking wrestler make for the most exciting matches I've ever seen. But, that it's still not 100% there yet. Sorry for the rant. I apparently had too much coffee today, and don't have anyone IRL to talk to wrestling about right now.
  8. Just watched Taylor get teched by World Champion Dennis Tsargush at the Yasar Dogu. Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that Americans have a hard time finishing takedowns when there behind and the opponent hangs/scrambles in a tripod position. Under high school/NCAA rules a takedown would be awarded when the hands hit the mat. In International styles one has to break their opponent to a knee for the referee to award two points. Is this a position that Americans are weak in because they don't have to practice it in folkstyle? What are your thoughts?
  9. We are again hosting our successful Central Ironman tournament. The tournament will be on April 11, and USA Wrestling cards are required. You will need to pre-register online by April 10 at trackwrestling.com (should be up later this week). The cost is $15 per style or $30 for all three styles. We will give awards for each style as well as awards in each weight and age division for an overall Ironman (only for those that do all three styles). We look forward to again having a great tournament with lots of competition in one day for a good price. Contact Rich Cox at rcox@rcsnc.org if interested and you need more information.

  10. http://www.flowrestling.org/coverage/251846-2014-Bill-Farrell-International/video/753394-70kg-Semi-finals-Jordan-Oliver-USA-vs-Adam-Hall-USA Apologies if this is still behind the pay wall. If you don't want to watch the whole match, skip to the 7:00 mark of the video to see the ref completely hose Oliver with 0:02 left in the match. Oliver leads 2-2 with criteria, and tries to kill the last 0:30 by downblocking and dancing around Hall. Oliver stays in the center, but Hall can't get to any offense, so the ref dings Oliver for a 1pt Fleeing the Hold penalty. We all want refs to call stalling more often in folkstyle, but holy cow is this the other extreme.
