  1. Too many folkstyle matches end up being 1 minute of excitement and 5 minutes of the top man controlling the bottom man. If I was the wrestling czar... Push out points (I'll stretch the reach of my czar powers) Reset to neutral from top/bottom position if no scoring after 30 consecutive seconds. If top man scores back points reset the 30 second clock. This way you add urgency and excitement to every top/bottom position, eliminate the staleness of when the top man holds down the bottom man for extended periods of time without scoring, and maintain the spirit of the folkstyle. As an added bonus, this increases the value of a takedown assuming that you can hold down your opponent for 30 seconds. Obviously, this would be a major change for the sport. I don't expect it to happen any time soon. But if it did, I think that folkstyle wrestling would be a much more enjoyable sport to watch and participate in.
  2. Worth noting that Lafayette Harrison's other State qualifier, Will Crider, got 5th in last year's Sectionals as a Sophomore. He got 3rd in Semi-State this year!
