    Funny history of match scoring

    Randomly found this. Found it very interesting:

    http://www.wrestlingstats.com/ncaa/p...%20Scoring.pdf

    If I read it correctly, there wasn't a point system at all from 1928 to 1941. Either get a fall or the ref just gets to pick. And you didn't necessarily win with a fall -- your opponent (in some circumstances) got a chance to also get a fall, in less time. 10 minute matches, 6 minutes of overtime. The first 10 minutes were either 3 periods of 2-4-4 OR 10 continuous minutes, if a takedown was recorded in the first 2 minutes.

    Note--I believe "predicament" means a brief near fall (less than 5 seconds), and near fall is the 5 second version.


    May my posts be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)

    I'm pretty sure I would have died if I had to wrestle for 10 consecutive minutes.

    Admit it, you've wrestled with guys for more than 10 minutes in the past.
