No, not necessarily, you could ge ridden out. If you do, the guy on top gets another point for riding time if its at least 1 min or more. And if you don't get out, you could also get turned for back points or a pin.
Really, it's just the top guys fault for giving up a point that easy. Like I said before, kids are looking for more combos these days because the competition is just that stiff on this level. At the NCAAs is where you will see the true finishes and well fought points and why these little points matter.
McD stays at 1, but Nico has closed the gap by a lot. Conaway coming in at 14th at 133, previously UR. A. Alton down to 12tg at 149. DA at 5, DT 2, Brown down to 7th, Ruth still 1st, Q up to 2, Lawson flies into standings at 12 at hwt
Something you're discounting, I think, Bill (and I admit that I've only been watching wrestling for maybe 2 years now) is the strategy that goes into the escape. You say about how easy it is to break free, but it really isn't always. Part of the problem is that several of our wrestlers seem like they actually just let their opponents go. This is, I think, for two reasons: (1) they're happy to trade 2-to-1 scores all day, because they're building a lead and know they can get those points; and (2) most of the pins I've seen from our kids come from shots, so they're also releasing so that they can reset their attacks. I don't think it's "really easy" to get escapes, but watching our best guys makes it look that way because they're always trying to score.
