Can someone explain the stall rule...
in wrestling? The name of the rule makes it obvious what it is about, but last night stall warnings were given at least a couple of times during what seemed like normal action.

I thought the ref last night let the crowd call a few stalls on Tech. For e
xample, there is no way I thought Zavatsky deserved to surrender a stall point. Conversely, I thought Jack should have been hit with his second stall way earlier. That would have affected the rest of the bout (and I think Chisko may have prevailed in that circumstance).

I will try to explain it as best as I can, but others might do a better job
The stall call is a tool that they are using to help encourage offense, and reward offense. As a wrestler you must show that you are making an effort to take shots, or establish some kind of offensive game.

Matches can be very dull and boring when you have two guys sitting in the middle of the mat and just hand fighting. If you are the aggressor in the match and are pressing/pushing on the other guy and engaging him, while taking shots, and the opponent is backing off and just playing defense, then they are going to call a stall warning. If they continue to do it then a point will be awarded.

You can also get a stall call while on the bottom, in that you aren't making an effort to get out, or making yourself presentable. So if you are in a tough situation, just sitting on the bottom with your head and hips pressed to the map and not making a effort, then you can get a stall call.

They can also call stalling when a man on top is holding onto a leg, and not releasing, or if a wrestler chases another off of the map. And last but not least they can call it for interlocking of fingers.

I may have missed a few things, but in the end if a wrestler is on their heels and not making an effort to attack, then the ref. can call stalling. It is generally up to the discretion of the ref. in many cases.

Wrestling is getting some great press on the Subscriber's board where a lot of TSL traffic flows that is primarily football and basketball.

By the posted questions it is from non-traditional folks that are not as familiar with wrestling as a sport.

Great momentum that will hopefully garner a following going into Nat Duals and the ACC/NCAA tournament in the next 2 months.

Go Hokies!

Great atmosphere
I was glad I got in and really loved the small venue atmosphere. I wonder if they had to turn people away ? Very intense dual. Don't want to see PSU again as I think PSU has a better chance of widening the gap as opposed to VT closing the gap. Still savoring the win over OSU last year , so the match I want to see is Iowa. It looks pretty good if NCS beats Mizz.

A question here from a Hokie who doesn't know much about wrestling
but who likes all sports. What is the recovery time for wrestlers' bodies after they wrestle? I'm sure it depends on the competition to some extent, but is there concern about wrestling a difficult match one evening, then turning around and wrestling the very next day?

  Simple answer. -- Hokie Flyer 02/13/2016 08:30AM

Hokie Flyer
Simple answer.
Each wrestler is different depending on where their natural weight is and the fact that some need to drop more weight to fill the weight classes.

It is all about having a nutrition plan that keeps their weight stable....not bounce up too much after a match, while at the same time eating the right foods that allow recovery after a match and can still maintain or build muscle strength.

It is like a regular diet on steroids....that needs to be balanced perfectly so that come match time they have peak strength, energy and endurance....all while making weight. It is very hard.

To add
Bad weight cuts rely on mostly water weight as opposed to proper management. Would think at this elite level a 15 lb water cut ain't nothing.

The problem is hydration is tied to strength and endurance. And you can only rehydrate so fast.

Just a guess, but a guy like epp might walk around at 205-210 in the off season and his weight management brings him down to 174 for matches

Let's just say in my hay day I was spinning 20 lbs of mostly water weight up and down and up and down. It was stupid and I did not "manage" my weight very well at all.

And to pile on HF and dallas above sodium intake is huge
Sodium will lead to water retention, making t harder to shed those pounds. So these guys go relatvely salt free for 4-5 months a year. Now imagine all your favorite foods loaded with sodium. Not like theyll add pounds of fat, they just make it harder to cut water weght, so one "cheat" weekend where they go off diet can take a week or two to correct.

Jerseyhokie29
Very much so. The basic process is...
A wrestler must make their weight 1 hr prior to the start of the contest. That means Joey had to weigh no more that 125 lbs at 6 pm tonite. He may rehydrate and eat whatever he wants but he needs to be back down to weight tomorrow by noon.

These back to back duals are scheduled specifically to simulate the late evening round of 16 at NCAAs, followed by the quarterfinals. The Hokies had a pretty epic fail in the quarters last year and dresser specifically said this weekend was being used as a simulation for march.

National Duals matchups .
Missouri @ NC State matchup will change rankings but VT has an outside shot to get to #4 in the NWCA/Coaches Poll and that would give them a matchup with Iowa.

VT is #8 this week but #7 Oklahoma lost to Oregon State last night and #6 Lehigh can handled by PSU today.

Does VT jump #3 NCS and how does the #3 NCS vs #5 Missouri math impact VT?

I'm think if NCS beats Missouri, VT goes to #4 but that's a wild ass guess. If not Iowa, the VT will get one of the Michigan/Ohio St/Nebraska group.

Here you go with my summary:

1. PSU
2. Iowa
3. Oklahoma State
4/5/6.. VT/NCS/Missouri

Quick Turnaround Duke preview -- Jerseyhokie29 02/12/2016 10:10PM

Quick Turnaround Duke preview
Since we wrestle at 1 pm tomorrow, this will probably be informal. Im gonna give gut feeling without justification at each weight, then cover 133, 149 165 and 197 in more detail

125 Tech by TF
133 Tech by Major (potential Forfeit)
141 Tech by decision (Lanky Finesilver)
149 Tech by decision (this is a total upset homer pick)
157 Tech by Decision (ugly match)
165 Duke by decision
174 Tech by MD
184 Tech by Decision
197 Duke by Decision
HWT Tech by Decision (2 pts short of major, walz cruises)

133 Dennis needs a match here. He'd crush Leylaud if he gets trotted out here. Problem is i have no idea why the forfeit occured last weeked (late tired didnt research). Dennis needs to improve his win %, especially if the Bronze scale for at large is close (could be as low as .600)

149 Huge match for Sal on his bid to NCAAs. A win here and his RPI could get over the hump. Finesilvers are a long lanky bunch who love their ankle picks and ride very well. Sal needs to press the pace for the upset and after tonites performance under a lot of pressure i see nothing but good results for mastriani,

165 McFaddens having freshman lumps right now. Full disclosure i havent watched the NCSU TF against Roskopf, but its hard to spin a 15 point loss. The problem is Fast is cut from the same mold as Roskopf and Wiercioch, hammers on top who love to funk it up. At the hokie open i thought David let one get away that might bite him. For his ACC seeding, he has to win here. Got a really bad feeling on this one.

197 Just like Ty had a measuring stick match today, Hartman does that for Jared. Right now Jareds flirting with the edge of the podium. This win could really help him especially with seeding. Dont see how Haught closes the gap, but one to pay attention to.

Its late im exhausted and happy.

Tech wins 28-6

Go Hokies

Sal put together a nice match today.
Would have had a major if Donohue hadn't caught him on Sal's last shot in the first. I loved seeing his roll at the very end of the match -- brought back good NCAA memories form last year.

Yep, VT would win tiebreaker with NCS even with loss against Duke...
but that would definitely sour the win today. Team should be highly motivated to take it to Duke tomorrow.

Except for the two gopher balls, she pitched really well
6.1 innings and 4 strikeouts.

And she was 2 for 3 at the plate, droving in 2 runs with a double.

Awesome debut.

And with her coach.... AA Angela Tincher, who knows what her
ceiling might be. Can't wait to see her play. Couple things....she did not strike out a bunch of people.....maybe she is more finesse whereas All American Angela was just.....blow it by'em. She ran out of gas and needed relief in the last inning but hey, just a R-freshmen. She was hurt last year....ACL injury but she seems to be fully recovered. Also she not only pitches but hits and plays SS.....AND stole a base.....maybe an elite athlete????....from Chesterfield VA....did I mention...JUST A FRESHMAN. Some nice pics of her in her HokieSports bio. Yeah baby, "let's play 2". courtesy reference to Ernie Banks and tomorrow, they do play 2 starting with South Carolina at 9am. Good luck Hokie ladies.

Remember since Angela left, circle is 3 ft further...
Hard to be a pure power K pitcher anymore. There has to be late movement. She struck out 4, Maggie both she faced. USF only struck out 3 Hokies

I firmly believe Chisko and Brascetta can change tonight's

Sully's first period was lack luster. After that he looked to be the better wrestler. Jack wisely stalled and got away with it.
Nic's layoff hurt him. Granny controlled him in every phase of the match
Both these guys seem to bounce back nicely after losses. I almost feel sorry for the duke 141 and 157 # guys

Jack was fortunate to score first and then pretty much stall 'till the end.
Gantt took it to Nick pretty good though. If Nick had converted the first shot, maybe it would have been different, but Gantt looked real good to me.

I'm sure glad it didn't split 5-5 and have it decided on the tech fall.
That 2-point nearfall for Roshkopf at the end of the 1st looked awful quick to me. (The ref in general seemed pretty quick on the nearfall counts.) And worse yet, the penalty point for McF's swipe ended up being the difference between the tech fall and a lopsided major decision. So I'm glad we had a margin so McFadden didn't get blamed for a one-point loss. Can't have those penalty points, though.

Re: Not sure if Dennis & Sal make NCAAs, but they just won ACC duals for us.
Dennis is going to force his way in by winning the ACC...he has plenty of time to train and I am calling his upset victory now.
