    Default Is this a stupid rule!

    Results:
    165: #4 Andrew Sorenson (ISU) tech fall. (4pts) Marshall Peppelman (CU), 21-6* (Cornell, 28-11)

    *Sorenson was only awarded four team points because he did not have any nearfall points

    I didn't realize this rule!!

    No, its not a stupid rule.

    If you want 5 you need to get backs.

    Then they shouldn't stop the match. Peppleman had stalling warnings and maybe a fleeing the match. Laid flat on mat and didn't allow any mat wrestling.

    I don't disagree with that.

    I understand the intent of the rule is to get guys to go for the fall, but most takedown clinics occur because the opponent won't wrestle. Lays with head down and elbow in and if ref doesn't call stalling fast enough, he not going to get defaulted out.

    I would rather see a 15 point win for 5 team points than a 1-0 win for 3 points.

    Just found out you could stall your way to a 4 point loss and not get defaulted out.

    If you give up a stalling point, it should count for 5 IMO. But the rule is what it is.

    I could get on board with that, getting 5 if you get a stall and no backs.
