What do you guys think of Zeke Jones throwing the cube in Bo's match? Unethical or just good coaching?

Your job as coach is to help your wrestlers win. I was pissed when he did it but I'd have done it too.

Just watched the match. Zahid tapped the mat just prior to the brick throw. Zeke was doing what his wrestler was asking of him.

Zahid thought he was out of bounds or his intensity let up on the edge of the mat or both. Either way it looked like his pace had taken a toll and left him a bit fatigued, which influenced the events that immediately followed.

Bo did a much better job of stalking him and came out of position one time on his feet giving up a single to his Left side (which is usually the weaker defense on a right dominant lead leg). Also, he went around the waist rather than grabbing an ankle in countering. He doesn't have leverage against Zahid which he has against most other wrestlers. That is one of those Askren positions that is ambiguous but highly winnable if you have spent a lot of time there and understand what wins it. If my memory serves me, he ended up there against Hall. Realbuto too. Sure does get there a lot. That is a position he needs to own and rely on skillset rather than athleticism or opponent being unsure of position.

Not as worried about the suck back. I file that one under trick me once shame on you, trick me twice same on me. I don't think that one happens again with a little mindfulness.

It was a nice takedown on the edge by Bo. One thing I really like about Bo is that he is so steady and a constant pace, not a sprint but an uncomfortable stride which takes its toll on wrestlers late in the match (if they don't take a time out).

Rex,
Do you agree with the no stall call on Zahid? I think the stall call on Bo was pretty quick and was surprised they didn’t hit Valencia.
