    I _feel_ like that was 2 at the end, but I also realize it is a judgement call by the ref on the start of the count, per the rules. Sasso shouldn't have waited on that shot, plain and simple.

    OSU guy should of gotten 2 pts at the end

    Boy Lugo was incredibly fortunate there at the end. That win was slipping away fast!

    • Kevin
      Kevin 2 months ago

      jr birdman same thing when Sasso beat him too. Lugo almost got a takedown as time ran out. Two studs, plain and simple. It would have been awesome to watch them wrestle each other for a championship.

    Lugo wrestles like a heavyweight that is 149 pounds. Those are some scary underhooks.

    Since Zain left, the 149lbs is basically where guys who can't win elsewhere take their shots. That's one of the reason Kolodzik came back, and I think he's the favorite to win it.

      Zain Retherford of Nittany Lion fame? His leaving dictated the whole 149 lb. Weight class in the NCAA? Wow

    Looked like a pretty clear two at the end there. Ah well, they will likely see each other again at the NCAAs.

    to be continued in 2 weeks... both matches have been razor close w/ questionable calls... but tonight, the score should've been 5-2

  • Juan Perez
    Juan Perez 2 months ago +1

    A lot of hate for Pat and for the call at the last second. They literally reviewed it and they didn't count it for a reason. I agree that If there was a couple extra seconds then it would've been a 2, that ain't the case. These guys wrestled their heart out and are now 1 for 1 this season. Can't wait to see how round 3 goes if they meet at NCAAs. Could honestly go either way with these 2.

  • George Adams
    George Adams 2 months ago +6

    Can’t believe Lugo wasn’t hit with stalling earlier when he was hanging on to Sasso without a mat return. Then when he was clearly stalling with less than a minute in the third. Unbelievable. Then he flexes his arms as though he won. I predict he’ll go down early in Minneapolis.

    • Kent Burandt
      Kent Burandt 2 months ago +1

      If you are "aggressively attempting" to return your opponent to the mat it is not considered stalling. That is why it wasn't stalling. In my opinion Sasso was stalling on his feet the first period.

    Total bullshit. Look at the clock at the end, Lugo is on his back starting at 0:04 until the final whistle.

    The Matturbator 2 months ago +13

    Even though it's low scoring if you know wrestling you'll know this was a great, technical match. The results literally came down to the last second.
    Should have been take down for Sasso at the end btw. There were three seconds on the clock when Lugo exposed.

    • Tyler Nicholson
      Tyler Nicholson 2 months ago +1

      @The Matturbator also requires the ref to make the danger zone announcement after reaction time. So all-in time is 5-8 seconds needed.

    • The Matturbator
      The Matturbator 2 months ago +1

      Rudy Corona my bad, you right. Sometimes the timer is lagging a bit on tv. But control is defined by 3 seconds of extended back exposure. 1 more swipe and that is technically control.

    • Rudy Corona
      Rudy Corona 2 months ago +1

      The Matturbator in real time it was not even 2 seconds and you need control to score a takedown.

    Lugo was on his back at the end and lost that match.

  • HexSpeedruns
    HexSpeedruns 2 months ago +5

    Yeah you guys can say what you want but sasso got handed the win in carver when he took 0 shots, and got three calls on his side which should have been points for Lugo. They’re even now with ref’s calls

  • Tyler Nicholson
    Tyler Nicholson 2 months ago +20

    Everyone who thinks it was two at the end: read the rules. It wasn't two, the ref had it right.
    If a wrestler breaks 90 BEYOND REACTION TIME, the ref makes the danger zone announcement and THEN begins the count. It's not as simple as 3 seconds and score.
    There was barely enough time for the ref to declare danger zone post-reaction-time and even BEGIN counting let alone count to 3.
    Lugo won fair and square, Sasso fans will just have to wait for the rematch.

    • Tyler Nicholson
      Tyler Nicholson 2 months ago +1

      @mike miller He's not "my boy"... I've only watched him one other time outside of this tournament.
      But perhaps since I'm just making excuses, you could easily refute my statements using the rule book?

    • mike miller
      mike miller 2 months ago

      Tyler Nicholson Your making excuses for your boy being on his back

    • Tyler Nicholson
      Tyler Nicholson 2 months ago

      Kemerer** was on his back

    • Tyler Nicholson
      Tyler Nicholson 2 months ago +2

      @Ethan Baker I mean, look at the danger zone call in the Kemerer/Hall match this very tournament. Hall was on his back for 8 seconds before the points were given. In this match, there were only a total of 3 seconds left in the match by the time Lugo rolled to his back.

    • Ethan Baker
      Ethan Baker 2 months ago +1

      Tyler Nicholson It was the right call because it was a judgement call. It’s completely a refs decision on reaction time. You’re right, but could have gone either way. Looking forward to round 3. 🍿

      @idoj654123 when I see a guy like him and his record, you start to compare him to Bo Nikal, Hayden Hidlay, Jason Nolf, and even Alex Marinelli. He doesn't stack up. Make no bones about it, he is elite but in a lower tier.

    Totally good work the thing is when he came out the back door and turn back over if he would’ve used his foot like a half! It would’ve secured that position a lot better and he could’ve dropped his knee down and held the person there and that would’ve been the win
