    Default Introduce Pushouts into NCAA Wrestling

    Why don't they have this? This will basically eliminate stalling and make many otherwise boring matches much more exciting.

    Dislike this idea. Think we'll see a lot less finishes and a lot more running a guy out with a single leg.

    I like folkstyle a lot and most of the rules. Don't like the way guys play the edge but for the most part the rules are good.

    If you think Folk is boring now, watch freestyle and see guys just hand fight because they're scared to shoot. Also, if this rule WAS applied you'd see a lot more guys blocking off with hand fighting so as not to let a guy ever get a leg. That will slow the match down and eliminate scrambling.(which i love to watch)

    I don't buy into the folkstyle hurts us in freestyle argument either(not that that's what you were suggesting I know)

    The easiest solution would be to have the wrestlers wear shock collars and put invisible fencing around the mat. After your first warning they turn your collar on medium. After the second warning it goes to full power!

    The ref should also have handheld remotes to "motivate" any inactive wrestler!

    Your reasoning rings true vais. I guess I just hate seeing wrestlers push the pace and still lose b/c their opponent played the edge like a coward. See the Scuffle finals match between Sanders and Nicholson for example

    I think rules need to be implemented to discourage playing the edge and sitting on a lead.

    I think more aggressive stalling calls and and fleeing the mat that was enforced regularly would help.

    Just a thought, why not have the wrestlers resume their position back in the center of the match, have ref reposition them?

    Oh yeah the shock collar, great idea. What happens though is the wrestlers start twitching instead of wrestling LOL.
