New rules for 2014-2015

Recommended Posts

From the NCAA:

Experimental Rules Designed To Limit Stalling Tactics Approved

Two Of The Rules Will Be Applied For The 2014-15 Season, While Two Others Will Be Used At Only One Wrestling Event.

 

The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel on Wednesday approved four experimental rules in wrestling, including two that will be exclusively used at the National Wrestling Coaches Association All-Star Classic Nov. 1 at the University of Pennsylvania.

 

The first experimental rule that will be implemented for the 2014-15 season focuses on a wrestler who is in an offensive position and locks or holds an opponent’s leg or legs and does not breakdown the opponent, execute an offensive move or work back up to the upper body for five seconds. That offensive wrestler will be called for stalling.

 

The referee’s count on the call will be both verbal and visual.

 

The other experimental rule regarding stalling will take place when an offensive wrestler applies a side headlock to the defensive wrestler and does not breakdown the opponent and/or execute an offensive move in five seconds. In that instance, the offensive wrestler will be called for stalling. Again, the referee’s count will be both verbal and visual.

 

Both of the approved experimental rules are designed to promote offensive wrestling by limiting stalling tactics or a way to position oneself in a stalemate situation.

 

National Wrestling Coaches Association All-Star Classic

 

The panel also approved two experimental rules that will be implemented only at the National Wrestling Coaches Association All-Star Classic on Nov. 1.

 

The first rule focuses on wrestlers who are in a neutral standing position and not actively engaged in an offensive attack, or a defensive counter to an offensive attack, while their feet are out of bounds. In that situation, the referee will call stalling.

 

This rule is designed to keep the wrestling action in the center of the mat and away from the out-of-bounds line.

 

The rule is not intended to be a “push out” rule. A wrestler not engaged in an offensive attack or a defensive counter to an offensive attack who is only attempting to push or pull the opponent out of bounds will be called for stalling.

 

The second experimental rule to be used at the NWCA All-Star Classic focuses on wrestlers who gain the offensive position by being awarded a takedown or reversal. In those cases those competitors may, after a wrestling stoppage, choose to resume wrestling in a neutral position without an escape point being awarded to his/her opponent.

 

Currently, a wrestler choosing a neutral position would give up a point to an opponent.

Can someone remind of the progression of stalling calls and points-penalaties? Has it been tweaked in recent years also.

 

1st - warning

2nd - point

 

I'm forgetting what happens 3rd, etc

I found my answer:

 

When a referee recognizes stalling, the first violation will be a warning;

the second violation will result in 1 point being awarded to the opponent; the

third violation is 1 point being awarded to the opponent; the fourth violation

is 1 point being awarded to the opponent; and the fifth violation will result

in a disqualification.

 

Be ineresting too see if any bouts get to DQ, with the new rules.

So...

Top guy puts legs in... (everybody's favorite)...

he attempts a power half / 3/4 nelson / reinforced half ... (whatever you want to call it... )

and is UNABLE to turn the defensive wrestler...

 

NOW...

The defensive wrester STANDS... !!!

 

Does the count start... !!!???

 

This happens ALL THE TIME.... and PAST interpretation:

If the leg 'ride' (cuz' that's what he's doing)... is on BEFORE the defensive wrestler stands..

1 offense - Stale Mate..

2 offense - Stale Mate "On You Bottom Man"

3 offense - STALLING on BOTTOM....!!!

 

So now - as per the NEW Rule.. - is this STALLING on TOP... !!!??

The situation you are describing has nothing to do with the new rule. I'm not sure where you're coming from on this.

My best guess would be that leggers seem to stall a lot.
