Submitted by Fhshockey112002 on February 3rd, 2012 at 4:01 PM

I know wrestling isn't a huge point of topic on the board but it is another chance to BEAT OHIO.  Tonight #12 Michigan goes to Columbus to take on #6 Ranked Ohio State.  

So before watching the Hockey team beat Miami (NTM) you can watch the wrestling team.


Key Matches: Michigan in Bold

133 lb. weight class #16 Zach Stevens (Sr) vs #3 Logan Stieber (Fr)

141 lb. weight class #1 Kellen Russell (Sr) vs #6 Hunter Stieber (Fr)

149 lb. weight class #5 Eric Grajales (So) vs #14 Cam Tessari (Fr)

174 lb. weight class #6 Justin Zeerip (Sr) vs #7 Nick Heflin (So)

285 lb. weight class #8 Ben Apland (Jr) vs #21 Peter Capone (So)


Other weight classes feature good matchups as both teams have roughly the same amount of top 25 ranked wreslers.  

If I missed anything or need to amend anything let me know!

Ok, I will try to simplify as much as possible.  First individual matches are scored:

4 Points (Near Fall 5+seconds)

3 Points (Near Fall 2-5 Seconds) 

2 Points (Takedowns, Reversals)

1 Point (escape, each min of riding time) 

Then from individual matches teams are awarded points as follows:

6 Points (Pin, Forfeit, Disqualification, Default)

5 Points (Technical Fall, with near fall points scored)

4 Points (Technical fall, with NO near fall points scored)

4 Points (Major Decision)

3 Points (Decision)

have the near fall points always been like that?  Perhaps I am just exhausted after an extremely long week but for some reason I remember the near fall points being different a few years back.


Maybe i'm just having a moment, though.


sorry if im just being dumb.

That is actually not true. Regarding near fall - it is either 2 points for 2-4 seconds, and 3 points for 5+ seconds, with an extra point that can be awarded if the defensive wrestler is injured or bleeding profusely and the action has to be stopped.

he got an escape then jumped on the guy who was still on the ground which is either takedown after escape or at worse a reversal... they gave us 1 point not 2 or 3 he got an escape the ohio guy did to tie it in the next 30 seconds and he won cause he had 15 second more riding time. but it was horrible cause after getting the escape he jumped on the guy and rode him out for close to 15 seconds so basically after the escape for zeerip the last 15 seconds didnt count cause the ref is a idiot

Michigan's Justin Zeerip just got robbed. That is the worst call I have ever seen in 10+ years of watching wrestling. I understand the possible confusion in calling the reversal vs escape plus takedown... but to not even award the reverse of control with 10+ seconds at the end of the period, which ended up costing the wrestler the match? Those two refs should somehow be penalized, whether by a fine or by being suspended from wrestling for a period of time. Unbeliebable.

we ended up holding out our good wrestler at 197 pounds Max Huntley cause the match was already over and he got hurt and had to forfiet two mathes ago against Minnesota, so if we had not got robbed and the match was still winnable he would have wrestled and then who knows. The ref took the steam out of our team and it is sad to see Zeerip lose considering he has never won head to head versus that kid from Ohio. And every match was close one thing goes his way he could have a few wins head to head.
