    I read it was overturned.  Did you watch?  Was it a time or out of bounds call?

    While the refs were reviewing it, the announcers kept watching the replay and stated they didn't see how it could be overturned.  Even Nolf admitted in his post-match interview that it was a take-down, and was surprised that it was overturned.

    I watched the same thing as coyotejoe. It was towards the end of first period near the middle of the mat. They reversed the call on the mat put three seconds back on the clock so it was not timing. They just said he didn't get the two point take down. If they needed indisputable video evidence to overturn a call I don't get it. Hidlay lost by one point and Nolf did not get the escape point before the period ended the first time around.

    Not totally sure on current rules, but I could see how they might say that he didn't "cover the leg".

      A buddy of mine was (academic) all-american wrestler at Purdue and he will know the answer, hopefully.
