    I didn't do a very good job of recapping the conversation. LOL

    Jim is a ref in Utah, I think and he said during the certification this year they talked about a tough ride is not necessarily stalling by the bottom wrestler.

    I'm not trying to bust on Varner just using his riding ability as an example.

    Was it Esposito ability to ride or your inability to get out? Did you suck that bad from the bottom?

    I know you weren't ripping on varner..

    I'm gonna have to say it was his ability to ride. I never chose down in high school because it slowed down the match, but whenever I did (when the 1 pt was needed) or the other guy picked top I always got out.

    He rode really high in a spiral and did it very well- keeping a lot of pressure forward at all times.

    I believe so. If your only counter wrestling and the guy your wrestling isnt shooting then your both stalling. You can be a mix of offensive wrestler and counter wrestler, but imo to just be a counter wrestler is to be a stalling wrestler.
