Coaches clarify 'butt drag' in wrestling case
The Fresno Bee ^ | Dec. 10, 2010

Posted on 12/13/2010 6:13:24 PM PST by GrootheWanderer

In a front-page story Sunday about the case, The Bee reported that the move involves a wrestler grabbing a rival's butt cheek and putting fingers in the anus to get leverage. In a clarification published today on page A2, the newspaper notes that coaches say it involves grabbing the butt cheek of a rival. Coaches vary on how often anal penetration occurs, but they say that it should never be intentional. Former Fresno State wrestling coach Dennis DeLiddo emphasized this point in a statement he issued this week as controversy over the case grew. "I have never taught, nor am I aware of any coach who has ever taught a wrestler to penetrate someone's anus while executing the butt drag," DeLiddo wrote. "On extreme rare occasions, a person's finger could inadvertently be placed between the person's butt cheeks while legitimately executing the move. In no circumstance, however, would there ever be penetration of the anus unless someone was purposefully cheating and doing something other than what is known as 'the butt drag.' "

This case has been posted a number of times with an inaccurate description of what the butt drag is.

I'm glad to see the Bee printed a correction.

hmmmm, grabbing some other guys butt and putting your finger in him. I guess wrestling really is a gay sport.

“Coaches vary on how often anal penetration occurs, but they say that it should never be intentional.”

See, if I was an editor ...

According to a police report, Preston Hill, the wrestler accused of sexual battery, said he inserted his two fingers between his opponent's buttocks for three seconds as a wrestling tactic, because he wanted to get the boy to wrestle him. "Everyone does this to motivate people who don't move on the mats," Hill said, according to the police report.

Now we're getting a little bit more of the story. If this is true, then it wasn't a wrestling move to get leverage, but some kind of sick, bullying by this senior on a freshman.

You can tell how often this happens by the number of shootings occurring following a match....

I’m surprised this thread didn’t get a purple screen with “No Thanks”.

I think that’s the Coach who teaches the “Cigar Drag” isn’t it?

I guess this hearkens back to the Greco-Romans during the Caligula era.

Having wrestled in high school and college, I can tell you that there are a certain number of psychopaths in the sport who need to be brutally run off. This ass-hole lover Preston Hill is one of them. He should be prosecuted for sexual assault and introduced to maximum security Bubba, who doesn't care about whether he is "motivated to move," and whether there are referees.

Five years of my kids wrestling and never did such a move ever be discussed or used.

A motivational technique?

Only in that hell hole called California.

If you are willing to do this move in order to win you are still gay

If someone tried that move on me it would instantly turn into a boxing match and I would deliver a KO!

Before executing the move do you ask your opponant to turn his head and cough?

Not just wrestling. In just the past year, there have been cases of high school football players in New York, New Mexico, Minnesota and Nevada, that I’m aware of, who have been caught sodomzizing younger players with their fingers or objects as part of hazing rituals. Ther’s prbably more that didn’t get picked up by the national media

ESPN did a piece a couple of years ago on hazing in high school and college sports, and it was frightening how often it is of a sexual nature, even in girl’s sports. I recall they noted that hazing is a problem in just about every sport but the worst cases do seem to be in sports such as football, wrestling, rugby and lacrosse.

Sounds like resume enhancement for a future career in the TSA.
