So annoying/cringey when the crowd gets extra excited and loud because...

Recommended Posts

a wrestler stretched all the way out to keep his tippy toes in bounds to get the takedown.

 

These aren't legit takedowns.  It's not really a takedown just because a wrestler is holding on to his opponent's shoe when the rest of his opponent is all the way out of bounds past the coach's chairs.

There is a different standard for control at the edge than is used in the center of the mat.  I was discussing this once with a pretty good North Jersey hs coach and he immediately brought up Oliver-Steiber.  If that non-takedown had happened at the edge with Oliver's feet in bound, he gets the two.   Middle of the mat and its no takedown, or at least open to interpretation, and that is what happened.
