    Just remembered a match I had way back in high school where I had 11 take downs and won something like 27 to 14 in a 9 minute match, what fun that was.

    I remember the reverse of that - my first year wrestling I got beat by a guy that couldn't pin me - but by the time the nine minutes were finally up he had something like a 35 point lead.

    Then in my second year a guy decided to put on a technical display - he took me down 10 or 15 times (I think using a different technique each time) and rolled me to my back 4 or 5 times (again, different techniques) letting everybody see how dominant he was. Early in the third he got a little sloppy and slipped a little and I pinned him. I can remember being able to quietly talk to him while I was pinning him (ref couldn't hear me) and telling him what a rotten SOB he was and how, if I caught him off the mat, I was going to do my level-best to kick his a$$.
    Luckily, he was a Sr. and I never had to face him again as I am sure he would have made me pay for my bravado.
