Lose Track of the Score at your Wrestler's Peril: A Harsh Lesson for Kent State and Ian Miller

In the quarter final round of the NCAA Division I Championships in March 2015, Ian Miller (Kent State) lost to Brian Realbuto (Cornell) 11-9 in sudden victory. But, that sudden victory round shouldn't have been wrestled because Ian Miller beat Brian Realbuto 10-9 in regulation. How'd that happen?

Takedown Makes the Big Time: Stanford v. Northwestern University Dual Meet

Fun time yesterday at Stanford University's Burnham Pavillion watching Stanford v. Northwestern dual meet.  Stanford uses Takedown to score their matches and generate performance statistics.  Yesterday, they kept their expensive pedestal scoreboard in the closet and instead used Takedown's inexpensive and automatically generated scoreboard on their 90" wall-mounted flat panel display.

Here it is in action.  With :49 left in the first period, no score in the 184 pound match.

Another match, first period with 2:09 to go, NWU up 2-0 with :38 of riding time advantage.  NWU is on top ( as indicated by the chevron under the NWU score).

And, here's the Stanford wrestling manager using Takedown. See the green cable?  That's the full extent of the setup -- run an HDMI cable from your iPad to your flat panel display.  Stanford's display is huge, but the setup is the same no matter how large (or small) your panel.   Also, instead of having one person run the scoreboard and another person doing the scoring, only a single person is required since the scoreboard content is automatically generated by Takedown.

Stanford also used Takedown to stream the action to their 6,000+ Twitter fans:

The outcome for the Cardinal wasn't great (see results on Northwestern Wrestling website), but Takedown had an outstanding debut on the big stage.

What about your program?  If Takedown works for two premiere Division I NCAA wrestling programs, think it'll work for your high school or middle school program?
