College / Sweetest move that wrestler ends up being scored on....
« on: March 09, 2015, 03:32:26 PM »
...would be Ness's lateral of Martinez.

Crazy thing was that after Ness drills him, not only does Ness NOT score but Martinez actually rolls through so quick and scores the takedown himself.

THAT was impressive!

College / Rule Changes for college wrestling....
« on: March 10, 2014, 08:46:05 AM »
There was a previous thread where Ray Brinzer and other were discussing rules changes to promote more scoring.

After watching the BigTens this weekend, one GLARING thing jumped out at me.

When in the top position, dropping down to a leg should be a technical violation, in my book.  It's bad enough watching guys like Delgado dive to a leg on every opponent's shot and end up in those ridiculous stalemates but to watch the top guy dropping down to that leg and fake like they were trying to work back up is terrible and boring to watch.

Top wrestler - YOU ARE ON TOP .  That means you should be working for a fall.  Dropping down to a leg is NOT working for a fall. 

For those who would argue that they are working to break a guy down, no they are not.  The top guy is working backwards by dropping down to a leg.

Technical violation for grabbing a leg at any time with both hands/arms when in the top position.

College / Interesting stat from 2010 NCAA's
« on: March 21, 2011, 11:55:49 AM »
I remember looking through the bracket from last year and saw a strange little piece of trivia at 125 lbs.

Fred Santiate of Boston U. went 2-2 at the NCAA's at 125 lbs, winning his first 2 matches, losing in the quarterfinals and losing his first macth in the consolations in the Round of 12.

What was strange?  ALL FOUR OF THE WRESTLERS SANTIATE WRESTLED BECAME ALL-AMERICANS DURING THAT TOURNAMENT - EVEN THE 2 THAT HE BEAT!

Hey Ron Good, that's something for your column in AWN.

Other Sports / Hey Viratas, what's your guess on Favre?
« on: October 26, 2010, 11:52:35 AM »
Does he call it quits because of the ankle or will he try to play?  And will a possible suspension from the league having anything to do with his decision?

I'm just glad he's your problem, now....!

Polls / CTC, How about I smite you in person?
« on: September 26, 2010, 10:32:58 PM »
CTC,

I come on this forum infrequently at best.  Now, I see multiple threads where you keep accusing me of doing something incredibly silly, yet it seems to bother you.

I'll clear this up right now.

My name is XXXXX and I'm from XXXXXXXXX.  Now, if you want to accuse me of something, do it at the next NCAA Division 1 meet and I'll be happy to tell you your full of sh#t to your stupid face.

Are we frickin' clear about this now?

Monday Night Football:  Packers vs. Vikings

Announcer Jon Gruden does a fabulous job impersonating Linda Lovelace on Brett Favre....

And we used to think John Madden was bad.
