these damn officials do not want an iowa wrestler to lose in the first round!! total BS!! Reenan from NC State pinned Warner from Iowa in the first round and that fricking ref wouldn't slap the mat.
The Reenan was winning at the end of the match got taken down for 2 points and then the ref called him for stalling and he gets hit for 3 points to tie the match and it goes into OT and the kid from iowa wins.
TOTAL screw job!!
Can someone talk to espn about puttin gthe riding time clock on the screen there have been matches that have come down to that for the win and sometimes you don't remember who's got the advantage.
