The biggest flaw in college wrestling JMO
I have thought about it for a long time and it hit me today. The biggest flaw of college wrestling is what happens when someone gets taken down. In college style the bottom guy usually tries to get up and get out. That is all great BUT the top guy is not allowed to get a gut and roll him when the bottom guy exposes himself by standing up. More than that in contrast to freestyle in college style the top guy can?t follow the bottom guy to the feet and then try and launch him for 5 points. In freestyle you can win a match that way. In college style you most likely get disqualified.
IMO this one situational rule is what makes college wrestling much more boring and restrictive due to massive amounts of energy spent on trying to ride the guy. Let them roll and throw each other. It is much more fun.
