    Agreed. I guess I'm complaining about the rules/officiating, not Burroughs himself. Burroughs wrestled an exciting, and- with the exception of that bad shot near the end- tactically excellent match. I just wish the rules (or officials interpretation thereof) made the wrestlers stay on the mat more.

    Then it sounds like, to this simple mind, that we could propose an easy fix: Have them wrestle in a cage. No out of bounds and no "edge wrestling," whatever that is.

    I suspect that greater minds than myself have hashed all of this out long ago, and that's probably why they (a) don't wrestle in cages and (2) have out of bounds lines.

    I didn't see anything dirty other than the push. When he was twisting JB's leg it was because he was trying to regain position, I dont think it was malicious. JB could have easily turned down and given up the TD but he decided to cry about it instead.

    I did think they were hitting JB with some stalls that I would not have considering he was scoring on the feet.

    I would figure I am not the 1st person to think of this but that's what would happen if Dana or Vince ran the NCAA...
