I made this comment at last year's NCAA to my dad, said a particular call wouldn't get overturned, never does.In Karchla's match Stieber didn't throw the brick until after a stalemate was called. I thought he had a reversal but knew it wouldn't he overturned in review because they hardy overturn any calls. The challenge procces is more for show than anything else.
Ignoring specific cases, shouldn't the percentage be low if the tournament has the best officials?I made this comment at last year's NCAA to my dad, said a particular call wouldn't get overturned, never does.
Don't they break down the stats how many challenges actually get overturned? It's gotta be less than 5%
I don't have numbers to back it up, but it seems like college wrestling has the lowest amount of overturned calls of any sport I've watched that has video review.Ignoring specific cases, shouldn't the percentage be low if the tournament has the best officials?
Agree 100 percent. You could argue Malik underperformed a little. D'emilio wrestled well in my opinion. Sasso losing to gomez during the season led to this draw. He performed as expected. I dont think coaching led to either of Karchla's losses...Outside of Ethan Smith, the performances for Ohio State in this tournament have been more good than bad given the expectations of this roster.
The question ultimate becomes is battling for top ten good enough, or is the goal ultimately team trophies with competing for THE trophy.
You CANNOT have a 3 TD to 1 edge yet have the opponent get a +1:00 edge in RT. You cannot be up 7-3 at the start of the third period and have OT be the end result. This is just unacceptable for an AA caliber wrestler, an unacceptable for a program that aspires to win team trophies.
Iowa is in 3rd place OSU is in 13th ...
Who's underperforming ? Coach Ryan's problem is he's surrounding himself with two many Ohio boys . Time to make some changes.
I agree with this, but it does seem like they've under-achieved in the last 2 seasons. Hopefully the most recent classes can bring the program back up to a top 2-3 teamThis thread didn't age well.
Buckeyes were predicted by seed to have 4 in the quarterfinals. They have 4 in the quarterfinals.
Only a total fool would fire Tom Ryan....
It may seem like it, but they really haven't. Perception vs reality.I agree with this, but it does seem like they've under-achieved in the last 2 seasons. Hopefully the most recent classes can bring the program back up to a top 2-3 team
Just sticky thisIts amazing how short sighted people are and how short their memories.... Tom isn't going anywhere unless he wants to, nor should he.
In his 15 seasons (NCAA Tournaments) in Columbus...
- the Buckeyes were NCAA Team CHAMPIONS in 2015 - Never been done in the 100 year school (wrestling) history prior to Tom Ryan
- the Buckeyes have won 3 B10 Titles -They had won 2 prior to Tom Ryan (1951, 1923)
- the Buckeyes have been NCAA Runners Up 5 times including the highest scoring runner up score of all time
- the Buckeyes have finished in the top 10 in 13 of his 15 seasons
- the Buckeyes have finished in the top 5 in 8 of his 15 seasons
In the 30 seasons prior to Tom Ryan
- 0 National Championships
- 0 B10 Championships
- 0 Runners Up Finishes
- 6 top 10 finishes (Tom Ryan has doubled that in half the time)
- 4 top 4 finishes (Tom Ryan has doubled that in half the time)
Since Tom Ryan came to Columbus here is a list of Coaches who have won National Titles - Cael Sanderson, Tom Brands, and Tom Ryan. The Ohio State wrestling program went from VERY average to one of the top 3 programs in the country under his leadership.
Its incredible the lack of credit some Ohio wrestling fans give him.
Good wrestlers don't always make good coaches. It's obvious the talent we have isn't being pushed to their potential in the practice rooms. Ryan should give the coaches one more year to turn it around . Nice guys finish 13thWas it beneficial to bring back guys like Stieber and Jordan as coaches. I would have thought the mat game would have been top notch with Stieber back as a coach. Losing Terv was huge.
Fire every coach out there except Cael. He is the only one that lives up to our fans standards. You have to be 1 not actually watching regularly. 2 completely blind. 3 know absolutely nothing about wrestling. Or 4 be Corky Romano to not recognize the improvement in the mat game. All year from day one I was excited in the improvement. But just like Browns fans they expect to go from mediocre(in that position as far as OSU wrestling goes) to super bowl champs overnight! Bunch of Corky's IMHOIt doesn't matter. It's been posted every year for years. Buckeye fans only love champions.
