(this post was made by Chop...he was at the house today) I think Marion wrestled well, however I don't think that we can ALL agree that Marion is the better wrestler as he lost.

He of course hasn't had much luck in terms of fulfilling those expectations.

I still think Russell's track record in these situations says a lot for itself.
His track record at NCAA's is a different matter, though.
I'm completely baffled by the qualms with the scoring system.
How should escapes be scored? Or, are you guys implying that maybe escapes should be scored at 1, and takedowns at 3?
UNI Panthers...Because it's just right.
3 point takedowns might be better, ban. The way it is right now isn't perfect, but it's the way it is and isn't a huge deal. People know that's how scoring works and it's pretty accepted, hasn't been changed every 5 years like freestyle.
I remember watching Reader/Lewnes this year and it was tied at one point. Reader had I think 2 TD's and an reversal, Lewnes 4 escapes and a takedown. Reader escaped before the third period ended to ensure the well-earned win, but I just didn't feel like it should have been a tie match because Reader had clearly outwrestled him in all three phases. The match should be on Flo.
Jordan Oliver's 8-7 win over Hochstrasser in the All-Star dual is another good example. He had four takedowns to Hochstrasser's one (at the very end of the match in garbage time essentially).
