Wrestling / Re: Question about different states
« on: March 11, 2019, 10:59:48 AM »
Michigan has a team dual tournament for all four divisions.  Four team champions are crowned.  Then a week later we have individual state championships; again with four divisions.

I just assumed that was how all states did it.

Secondly, I have to give props to the ref to WAVE OFF that TD in overtime. Kudos to assistant to helping the ref to make the correct call here.

Unfortunately, in're only allowed one quick stalemate in regards to "freezing wrestling." Even though the first stalemate was for not returning the wrestler to the mat and the second one was on the ankle, they are both attempts at "freezing wrestling," therefore STALLING and a point should have been given since the wrestler was already warned.

I believe if the match was appealed, Red would have been given the victory, if appeals are allowed in whatever state this occurred. There are a few times Green could have been warned for stalling earlier in the match too. I don't think green took his first shot until the last few seconds of the third period. Red didn't take too many either, but he definitely took 3 or 4 legit shots and was definitely the aggressor.

thanks for your assessment on the match....

I agree on the ref waving off the TD at the end of first OT.

I also agree with your assessment on the interpretation of stalemate and then stalling in UTB.    I wasn't sure if the ref should even have called the first stalemate since a stalling warning was already given in the 30 second OT.  But, if you want to give 1 stalemate in UTB, I could see that (although, about 10 seconds ticked off the clock without the defensive wrestler being returned to the mat...that seemed too long).  But when you call the second stalemate after a wrestler is grabbing one ankle and being dragged around the mat like a mop, that has to then be a stalling.

I wasn't aware a match could be appealed after the fact.  Is that something you can do in NY?

 The match took place at Detroit Catholic Central in Michigan.  The refs always seem to give them the hometown calls; I guess the lord does work in mysterious ways  :D

I am not a ref, but would like those of you on this board to chime in and provide clarification on stalling calls in OT.

The video below is between Facundo of Davison (#1 in country at 160) and Amine of Detroit Catholic Central (#2 in country at 152).  The schools are huge rivals.  Facundo beat Amine in state finals last year.  The match is being held at DCC

Let me know how you would have called the match....

College / Scholarship Allocation Question
« on: February 28, 2018, 11:41:45 AM »
I know all the major D1 programs are allocated 9.9 scholarships (which probably comprises the majority of programs I am guessing).  However, maybe smaller schools in the smaller conferences are allocated fewer scholarships by their university.  Does anyone know which D1 programs are not fully funded and receive fewer than 9.9 scholarships?  Is there any way to know this or is it just word of mouth between the coaches?

You are not alone, CTC.  I think this was his best song.  It was covered by about everyone.

College / NCAA Championship Tickets Question
« on: November 09, 2016, 09:37:34 AM »
I have never been to the NCAA's before, but I happened to snag a hotel in downtown St. Louis.  Have any of you guys ever had to scalp tickets at the NCAA's?  Can you find tickets for sale outside the venue, and if so, what do they normally sell for (approximately)?  Any better ideas besides scalping?

I go away for a while and this thread dies?  This was my favorite thread of all time. 

Scroll up this last page and check out the work from Brycemus.  That was a hall of fame run and will probably never be duplicated.  Buy him a beer the next time you see him.  Well done!

I hate that he is gone, especially how he went out.  I thought he was a great coach and an icon to the sport.     2001, 10 All-Americans!!  Holy F#ck!

I think #4 should be #1. Bar bitches are hard for me to quit.

Nice one ST.  That was damn funny....

College / Re: Better career?
« on: February 16, 2016, 01:55:05 PM »
to add a similar comparison:

Which quarterback had a better career: 
  A.  Jim Kelly going to 4 consecutive super bowls and losing them all
  B.  Some mediocre QB like Trent Dilfer going to the super bowl once and winning

I say Jim Kelly

I vote for Mike Evans in the original post.  3x all-American is damn impressive.  Plus he sported an impressive stache

House of Cards.

That series shows how politics really runs in Washington.  Great show, and there is only 3 seasons so you can catch up before season 4 starts.
