Stall on top? He was trying to do stuff, but Sorenson was balling up. Sorenson was doing everything he could to make it close, I don't blame him. However, whenever he makes a legitimate effort to try and get out, he opens himself up for Rethorford's arsenal.
I didn’t watch a whole lot of the action from the Big 10’s but from looking through the results one thing that jumped out at me was the number of people who pulled out after a couple rounds when they gotten far enough to qualify for nationals. I don’t recall that happening in previous years and from the perspective of a fan this kinda bugs me.
Understand that I’m working off the assumption that these people were not really hurt but it really seems like some folks are just avoiding matches to either protect their seed or just don’t want to give folks too many shots at them. Seems like the seeding process for nationals really provides an incentive to avoid a match late in the season.
