Hell no, absolutely not!!!

Freestyle is nothing but take downs and quick turns. Too many times matches are stopped/challenged because no one can tell who initiated what turn. It's crazy. Additionally, there is no such thing as wrestling for a pin in freestyle. this in my opinion takes away from what wrestling is all about.

Folkstyle is great wrestling. There are some things that can be done to make it a bit more interesting, but changing college wrestling from folkstyle to freestyle would be a huge mistake. The average person will never understand freestyle wrestling and scoring.
