Thread: Instant Replay in College wrestling

    Do NCAA referees get paid? And are there enough to cover all the matches with 3 per mat?

    I'd leave it alone myself. I don't recall a D1 dual or tournament where there was not at least 2 refs. 3 would be to much. and yes they do get paid.

    This is true, but my understanding is that the 2nd referee has no authority or responsibilities. The main ref can consult with him if he so desires.

    In Judo, there are three refs for every match. The head judge makes the call and if both mat judges agree then can overule his call.

    Personally I don't think that this needed in wrestling. Most of the judgement calls like the Hamlin takedown and Marion non-call are so close that an extra ref or replay is not going resolve it. Some situations are so close it is a flip of the coin who gets the call and that is just part of wrestling.

    I understand, but shouldn't the rules for the championships be pretty much the same as the rules that got them there? Unlike the regular season, the NCAA's do have two refs for every match, but that's a very minor change.

    No reason to change something so drastically when you could just add another ref. Look, no matter what you do, someone is going to get screwed from time to time. Just add an additional ref at nationals making it three. Any disputes are decided by the majority.

    I'm good with that, and would be willing to pay the few extra dollars for a ticket that would probably be necessary.
