If that is a takedown, I think I might be over this sport.  Beyond horrible that this sport would allow such garbage.

If they would have ended up in a scramble immediately after the takedown was called, I wouldn't have had an issue.  But, the fact that Storley rolled him right through to a very possible pinning situation makes it hard for me to, without Iowa bias, say it was a takedown.  Storley is a scramble expert.  He thrives off of exactly that situation.  He ended up on his butt for that quick moment as much, if not moreso, of his own accord as from Evans taking him there.

 

Any which way it ended up a mess.  CLEAR control should be written in the rule books.  Proponents say this interpretation of the rule was to eliminate referee's opinions, but clear control is no more an opinion than seeing what just happened and calling it a takedown was.

Love how Evans was all bad ass after the match, like he actually did something great instead of getting lucky.

tommygun,

 

As much as I don't think it was an Evans takedown, there are a few crucial photos missing in that time lapse.

 

Also, I would appreciate if you and Tbar would delete your posts as Vak and I were not finished with our hand!

Called similar to how Kindig's takedown on Howdy was called. The reffing is terrible this year but at least it's consistently terrible.

No, he ended up on his butt because Evans put him there.  And the moment that occurred it was over.

He took the risk to put himself in that position to get "lucky", more than Storely did the whole match.

Storely was in trouble on Evan's double leg, then he went slickly through butt, back, shoulder, side, and onto Evans back in a fluid motion.

 

C'mon guys - this is wrestling.

 

Yes the part from his side to Evans back was slow and precarious... I was on the edge of my seat.

 

But motion didn't stop.

 

If there's an argument here - it's only about if motion did or didn't stop.

Other than take the only committed shot of the whole match and score with it? Evans may not be David Taylor from neutral, but in this match, he initiated the offense that got him the win, No way to deny that.

MSU...... I usually agree with you BUT..... I have to say IMO Storley was headed to his butt because Evans took him there. Was Storley going to hit his roll as fast as he could..absolutely, but he was certainly TAKEN to that point. Tho I am not a fan of how the rule is written.......... as it is written, imo, it was a TD. 

More of a problem is, and doesn't seem as if anyone is mentioning it, was the total lack of action throughout the match.

Here we have to top rated guys that don't have the balls to TAKE the match to his opponent. THAT pisses me off quite frankly. Through those glasses.....neither guy deserved to win. WHAT has happened to our fine sport?

Gable and Owings didn't score 24 points because they were afraid to make a mistake. They wanted to SCORE MORE than their opponent. Where did the attitude infiltrate our sport that said..... "keep it close till the end then I will go hard for 5 seconds and if it works I win.....if not.. well I probably don't"

Couldn't agree more, AKHUNTER. Just the other day, I had the discussion with someone about the current direction college wrestling is headed, regarding action. Personally, I feel stalling needs to be a point of emphasis with officials. College wrestling (in general) is becoming more and more boring to watch.
