    [QUxwOTE=vaisforlovers;501682]Are we really being critical of Dake for not bonusing Tyler Caldwell? Do you people watch wrestling?[/QUOTE]

    The criticism is for not even trying. Being up 4-0 going into the third, why not try for bonus points? It is unlikely to happen, but it is even more unlikely that he would lose the match

    Dake is who he is. He should be appreciated.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    In this instance I think that they were talking about a dual format where one wrestler can't carry a whole team. However, and as you said, one wrestler OFTEN carries a whole team at the NCAA's, and yet another reason why I put no stock in the concept of "team title" at the NCAA's.

    As one great example of my former point, can we say Derek Moore?
    UNI Panthers...Because it's just right.

    Yes, we might be getting just a bit greedy when we start grumbling about 3x national champions, one of them undefeated, and how they aren't always getting bonus points.
    I guess Ruth and Taylor scored more team points last year, but that's a pretty unusual year.
