    Also, the NCAA rules changes in 1977 are nothing compared to the FILA rule changes in the last several years, completely changed the sport of freestyle and greco wrestling.

    Yes but your saying its not possible at all for someone to change somthing. Its a long and hard process, but if its a problem it can be changed. And all of the stuff I say is plausible. But I starting to think that you see me pulling my Info from thin air.

    That's my point, Zig; John Smith lost a match at the 1992 Olympics and still won a gold medal. Ben Peterson had a tie at the 1972 Olympics and won a gold medal
    Win by fall-no point
    Win by decision-1 point
    Tie-2 points
    lose by decision-3 points
    lost by fall-4 points.

    6 bad points and out of tourney

    3 remaining wrestlers do round robin

    I believe that was the system in place in 92......definitely was in 72.

    No they got rid of the bad mark system in the late 70s or early 80s. Smith wrestled under the good point system.

    win by fall - 4 points
    win by technical fall - 4 points
    win by decision - 3 points
    if you lost but scored on your opponent you'd get 1 point.
    There may have been an additonal half point for an 8 point margin (e.g. 3.5 points). Not sure.

    Smith qualified for the Gold medal match because he had a technical fall over Azizov (4 points) and Azizov beat Reinoso by decision and Reinoso scored (3:1), Reinoso beat Smith by decision and Smith scored a point (3:1).

    Add up the points:

    Smith - 5
    Reinoso - 4
    Azizov - 3

    Got it.........knew that it changed someplace but still allowed wrestler to advance if they won their pool even if they lost. At anyrate, I like a system that allows for a bad match and still rewards consistancy.
