    You could look at it that way, or they just stupidly eliminated the 118 weight class and reduced the others by a few pounds.

    It was 1997 when the wrestlers died, not 2000.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    Hey Big - College kids are governed by rules that are "in loco parentis", the "international scene" isn't (nor should it be.) Wrestling competition is great - but the health of college kids comes first. Certification/weight-loss limits/etc. for safe weight-cutting are the absolute highest priorities for the collegiate scene. Plenty of time for insane weight cutting later as adults....

    The NCAA guidelines are also backed by a significant amount of scientific research. Not anecdotal opinions that cutting once a year is better than every week... These guidelines were established by coordination of the Wrestling Committee and the Competitive Safeguards Committee. The NCAA spends a significant amount of money on researching health and safety standards for all the sports they sponsor.

    they would also probably perform better on meth amphetamines too big but thats not really an option is it...i liked the way that had it when i wrestled where your certification weight was based on current weight and body fat...pretty simple calculation...
