    mueller's 4 point tech fall

    can anyone clear this up for me why in the world did the team only get 4 points for his tech fall but they got 5 for fanthorpes? during the intermission they said that they had the score right at 11-6 but i was pretty sure it should have been 12-6 due to his tech fall but somthing went screwy and i dont understand if anyone can shed some light on the subjet I'd be interested

    Re: mueller's 4 point tech fall

    My understanding is that either last year or the year before, they changed the rule so that for a team to get the full 5 points with a tech fall, the wrestler must have some back points in his total. The point of the rule change was to force more attempts to pin the opponent. But what I don't understand, why reward the opponent for running away or stalling just so he doesn't give up one more team point? I say change it back to the old rule.

    oooh ok that makes sense now thanks for claering that up i agree with you i think that rule is weak i believe no matter how you do it if you beat a guy by 15 points its should be worth 5 especially in college that is quite a feat. you can pin someone on accident and get 6 points but you have to completely dominate to tech fall someone it should always be worth 5 points

    I hadn't heard of that rule and was wondering the same thing as I sat there.
