  1. Today
  2. Oh, and I forgot to mention .... Moxie has almost no hair left, dresses like a slob, and is almost as fat as Maholtz. *it's not as fun to pick on Moxie because he doesn't fight back as much, but I still gotta try.
  3. Almost any ref you ask is going to say that they would have had to see it in action before giving you a good answer. On one hand, that's a handy cop-out, on the other hand it's true. Typically, anything that isn't illegal upon application depends on how it is being used, and that's almost always a "had to see how it happened" call. The whole releasing the leg would be a stalling call, so that implies that it's not illegal in and of itself. Also, if a wrestler is giving up back points, that's a good indication that he's not "broken down on the mat." There's lots of things that you can't do in a wrestling match that you can do when you have someone in nearfall criteria (locking hands around the body comes to mind). While I've "been out of the game" for some time now, it would strike me that the big question would be if the pressure from the knee trap was going against the normal motion of the joint. There's a lot of torque that is allowed at the college level that we just don't let go in high school, and in the future that would be my big arguing point, if I was going to make an argument.
  4. Yesterday
  5. Sorry, no answer here but good to see you here again. Are you still coaching OP?
  6. We had match a few weeks ago that my wrestler lost outright and that is not my gripe. My gripe is that he lost by tech fall on a call that I am extremely confused about. His opponent earned two 2 point back exposures and one 3 point back exposure with the knee trapped against the back of the leg. After the match was stopped due to a technical fall (17-2) I confronted the ref and asked why he allowed the leg trap. He told me that it can be used for tilting and back point control. I told him it is my understanding that the trapped leg is only legal in any capacity at the college level and in freestyle. I also stated that the leg must be released at or before 5 seconds after a takedown or breakdown. He told me I was wrong and I needed to calm down, I ended the conversation with a couple of choice words under my breath, across the room, into the stands, and finally calmed down. Perhaps I unnecessarily lost my temper for a rule I am ignorant about. What is the rule on the leg trap at the high school level? Again, my wrestler lost the match to a much better wrestler that day and the score would have still been 10-2 going at the end of the 3rd period. I am just confused about how he lost due to what I believe to be a illegal hold.

    ... and they both have to overcome being coached by a Bengals fan. Those people from Ohio don't typically know anything about winning. 2 things against Emery winning (one of which hurts Ortega as well: 1 - heavyweight coaches can't out coach lightweight coaches in weight classes below 145. So Wilkins will have a huge advantage in Feb. 2 - Neither of them will win in the tight clutch situation unless Moxie learns how to dress like he's going to a formal dinner party. You can't coach big time wrestling matches if you're dressed like you' re going to wrestling practice.

    Didn't you used to help out with the Dutch Fork program back in the 90s? If not, then you really aren't who I thought you were, and this whole thing becomes even more fun for me.

    I am more impressed with Ortega's result than Emery's. A little surprised that Emery won, but not really. Good wrestle that had to "grow" into his body. I don't think Ortega qualified for state last year, even though I thought he would, so winning the Slam is huge going into what I believe is his senior year.

    DF? Is that because Maholtz started his Hall of Fame career at Dutch Fork?

  17. Haha! Scales were a little on the lite side. Maybe Koz and Maholtz have screwed up the calibration from their nightly weigh-offs?

    So, on a more important note for those that were at the slam this weekend: Do Koz and Maholtz still appear to be in the same weight class, or has Koz finally slimmed down? I know there's no hope for Maholtz, he's a big boy through and through, but Koz was once respectably thin.

    Maybe he meant that it would upset some people that he won, not surprise them. I can think of a number of people that would really get upset if he won state this year.
  20. I really donโ€™t think Sam Emery winning a state championship in any weight class would upset the state tournament. I can think of a handful of kids from 126-145 that could win a state title and I wouldnโ€™t consider it an upset. Schultz from Goose Creek, Aluyan and Brown from FD, Simpson, Ramirez and Wilkins from Rock Hill, Manningding and Soriano from Stratford, Palmer and Emery from River Bluff, Lawson from Dorman, Rhue from Wando, Jurey from Summerville, Shiffer from Hillcrest and Kilcrease at Lexington. Just a few names off the top of my head that wouldnโ€™t surprise me if they won 126-145. Fort Mill, Woodmont, etc have kids around these weights that can do some damage too.
  21. Few more local guys added to the class... Wrestling adds six more to inaugural recruiting class Nov 29, 2018 GREENWOOD โ€“ The Lander wrestling program will add six more freshmen to its first incoming recruiting class, head coach R.C. LaHaye has announced. "This group of student-athletes represents some of the best wrestlers not only locally, but nationally," said LaHaye. "I am extremely excited to add this group of future Bearcats to our program. This group represents not just great wrestlers, but great student-athletes who want to join the culture that we are building here at Lander. I am also excited to welcome three student-athletes from our home state of South Carolina to the Bearcat family. The past few years, some of the best local athletes have been headed out of state to compete. We want to be a home for the best kids in South Carolina." Signed Recruits: (sorted by projected weight class) Austin Ross โ€“ Indian Land, S.C. / Indian Land High School โ€“ 2X High School State Champion โ€“ Projected Weight Class 125 Bryson Ethington โ€“ Taylors, S.C. / Eastside High School โ€“ 3rd Place SC State Championships โ€“ Projected Weight Class 157 Mitchell Thompson โ€“ Social Circle, Ga./ Social Circle High School โ€“ Georgia State Champion โ€“ Projected Weight Class 157 Angel Hernandez โ€“ Lakeland, Fla. / Lake Gibson High School โ€“ HS State Runner Up, NHSCA All American โ€“ Projected Weight Class 165 Zane Lanham โ€“ Hurricane, W.V. / Huntington High School โ€“ 2x WV State Champion, 2x NHSCA All American โ€“ Projected Weight Class 174/184 Ryan Humel โ€“ Blufton, S.C. / May River High School โ€“ South Carolina State Runner Up โ€“ Projected Weight Class 184/197 Total Signed Recruiting Class by the Numbers: # Of Incoming Freshman: 15 # Of Incoming Transfers: 1 Combined High School State Titles Won: 16 Combined High School State Placings: 41 HS All American Honors: 7 Number of States Represented: 8

    That's fine with me. I'm as much an anti-DF person as I am an anti-Eastside person. Personally, I find it much more satisfying to have someone think that they are my friend, and then beat them down with sarcasm and fat jokes. That way they won't be expecting it!

    How about that Sam Emery! With a performance like that he could really upset the state tournament this year!

    As the Founder, President, and Chief Operating Office of the "Mark Buford for SC Wrestling Hall of Fame" social movement, I totally understand the questioning. No harm, no foul. Play on. SCMAT is really an incredible historical resource for all things South Carolina Wrestling, and Mark Buford does an incredible job at keeping present-day updates coming at a reasonable rate (I've noticed that some teams are updated really quickly and I'm assuming that is because certain coaches are diligent about sending results) For a one man show, the tournament updating is reasonable. The rankings are, and always have been, an exciting feature for coaches, kids, and sports reporters statewide who reference SCMAT frequently. What's most impressive for me is the longevity of the site. It has been around as long as I can remember; always consistently updated, always there with no outages. Obviously, the state specific websites like Guillotine and PA Power are in states where wrestling related traffic is high enough that banner ads make running those sites a legitimate business opportunity. That said, there are several traditional wrestling states that I always am surprised don't have dedicated sites, or at least ones on the first page of Google search (NJ being one. Finding state tournament brackets are pretty brutal though they get a ton of wrestling coverage at NJ.com) To my knowledge, there are few southern states that have a centralized website similar to SCMAT. NCMAT was very similar but I think it may be defunct, or only recently reinvigorated. All in all, I think most are happy with the service the website provides and a more robust platform would be icing on the cake.

    You aren't allowed to ask any questions around here until you've been around long enough to already know the answers. Then, and only then are you allowed to ask your questions. (there's supposed to be some newfangled way to show that your response is filled with sarcasm, but I don't remember what it is, and I'm not about to ask. However, I don't want to insult New SC guy until I like him enough to insult him, so consider the above to be comical, and not serious).
