Winning Wrestlers Score First
What I wanted to know from a statistical standpoint was whether something an old coach of mine told me was in fact rooted in truth or was just his mental psyching techniques.
Coach John Webb, former OSU, Weber State, and BYU coach told me once; “The man who scores first (gets the first take down or points) will win 70% of the time.”
While in college I didn’t think about it too much but as I matured and became a better student of the sport I couldn’t help but ask, “Is it true? And, If it is what does that mean?"
