    Default Re: Out of Bounds

    The 3rd period in the Clark/JO match was a classic example of the top guy pushing the guy out of bounds when the bottom man gets to his feet. There is no incentive to try to take him back to the mat if you can just walk him out of bounds. Great strategy by Clark if they ref doesn't do anything about it. Is able to ride just long enough to where JO can't get the major. And btw, I dislike Okie St and Iowa equally.

    Oh the days of the passivity calls. I dislike the push out rule.

    It may be too dramatic of change but in folk I'd like to see stalling call award a point plus choice of position. Maybe even incorporate a passivity circle onto the mat but that's probably way too drastic for sure.

    Edit: Art I just noticed you posted about a passivity circle too. Maybe it has some interest?
