    Default Wrestling Apparel question

    Question about Logan Storley's wrestling gear during B1G's and NCAA's...

    The "leggings", or whatever they're called, that he wore does not conform to the Uniform and Equipment rules, at least what I could find. I have nothing at all against them, just curious if anyone can come up with a rules variation that applies. Here's what's written in the rulebook...


    1.12.1.1
    Singlet. A singlet covering the upper torso shall not be cut away in excess of the uniform pictured in Illustration Nos. 1, 2 and 3. Specifically, the front and back of the singlet shall not be cut lower than the armpit. Under the arms, the singlet shall not be cut lower than half the distance between the armpit and the belt-line. The outermost garment shall have a minimum inseam length of 4 inches and shall not extend beyond the topof the knees.and

    1.12.1.2




    Spandex/lycra. The shirt shall be a T-shirt style form-fitted, sleeveless or short-sleeved and shall not cover or extend beyond the elbow. In addition, the length of the shirt must be longer than the torso to
    prevent the shirt from becoming untucked. The shirt shall remain tucked into the shorts at all times during competition. The shorts shall be formfitting with a minimum 4-inch inseam and shall not extend beyond the top of the knees.


    THANKS!!

    I'm so old TIGHTS were required apparel under your singlet.
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    Russ-we must be about the same era. I have to admit that I'd be embarassed to wrestle in the current singlets. You can guess that I'm older than 30!

    I don't know anyone under 40 that wore tights, except for one school in my conference that still does...And they suck.

    I haven't followed high school wrestling since those days, but the Union team (LaPorte City, IA) was wearing tights during the years that Trey Clark and Bart Mehlert were on the team. I'm guessing it was about the late 90's or so.
    UNI Panthers...Because it's just right.

    Geez, we wore these horrible tops that snapped at the bottom and then you put short/shorts on. We envied the teams that got to wear tights. This was 1962-6. The MSU uniforms IMO, don't compare favorabley to when they wore green tights and top and white trunks. That was a classic look.

    Singlet.

    To answer your question, the paragraph cited applies to the singlet only, not the leggings. In the absence of a specific rule, the leggings are not regulated; hence, legit.

    Leggings enhance ability to slide on the mat, which benefits some and hinders others depending style.
