Are suplexes illegal in folkstyle
I would have bet money that this question had been asked before so I did a forum search with the word "Suplex" but it came up empty.
My question is, is there an explicit ban on suplex throws in folkstyle?
I have been wrestling since my junior year in high school (I am now a sophomore in college), and I have seen plenty of true German Suplexes (guy was flipped straight over the throwing wrestler's head) both in JV and Varsity level competition.
One of my wrestling coaches said they were illegal, the other said they were not.
I did a search for a definition of a "slam" in folkstyle and came up with the following (the only problem with this source is I am in Florida, and this was from a Connecticut website)

Unless something has changed in the 5 years I've been out of the sport, yes it is illegal. I don't see why it would be legalized since in folkstyle it doesn't really do anything but get your opponent back to the mat.

Yeah, suplexes are expressly forbidden in scholastic wrestling. I'm not 100% sure about this, but I think that the issue hear is the small gap between the rules of scholastic and collegiate wrestling. At the scholastic level, it's illegal without a doubt. At the collegiate level, there might be certain circumstances that make it legal. Maybe it's just the referee's discretion. You should prolly ask your coaches for more clarity.

If memory serves, folkstyle wrestling requires the lifting wrestler ensure his or her opponent's safe return the the mat.
It's not exactly what you are looking for, but here is a link to the rules for freestyle, greco-roman, women's, and beach wrestling: http://www.themat.com/forms/2007_RuleBook.pdf
Edit: I found the NCAA rulebook:
