    Haircuts, Taylor vs Dake?

    And lets not forget that 7-0 was against a guy who looked like his goal was to not lose by 8. Courtney looked like he used that match to work on his cardio.

    I think Dake will have a lot more fans when he wins a gold in 2024, when he's back in high school.

    And yet, despite not even practicing top or bottom wrestling, they still have outperformed every team except Iowa and PSU over the past decade.

    I don't understand the obsession with breaking recruiting news. I guess it drives traffic, but it's not as if it's some incredible news story or scoop that requires proper attribution. I feel the same way about the people who are obsessed with being the first to break news about trades or signing in the NBA/NFL/MLB. Wow, good job, you beat the announcement by ten minutes. With that said, this isn't a criticism of Willie breaking the news...Just the overall trend of people caring about who the first is to break it.

    Of course he wants to go back to high school it reminds him of the last time Taylor could actually beat him.

    As I noted on another thread, Taylor has won more competitions in the same time frame as Dake, 14 to 9. Dake has beaten Taylor each time they went head to head. Who has had the better career? By medals Taylor. Who is better? Probably Dake, assuming he would beat Taylor head to head today. The Oly's are the pinnacle. Terry Brands forever will be in the shadow of Tom because Tom won Gold at an Olympics and Terry only got Bronze. Don't believe me, ask him. Oly's are the pinnacle. They only have 6 weight classes. All wrestlers try to make the Olympics. Tougher to get there. Myles Amine was smart and went to San Marino for his chance at Olympic glory and he won Bronze. Couldn't have done that had he wrestled for the USA. It is tough to be on an Olympic team and it is tough to qualify for the weight for the Olympics. There is no wrestler in the world that would say I'd rather be a World Champion over being Olympic Champion. There is a prestige and honor in being an Olympic Gold medallist. Saitiev was denied being able to get 4 Olympic Golds because of Slay. Do you think it doesn't bother him at all? I doubt it. He was the greatest and even he got derailed by an unknown. JB suffered in 2016 and should have been Olympic Champion based on performance. And he didn't even make the team this year. Why? Because competition from another weight came down and dethroned him. That doesn't happen with 10 weight classes, all of equal stature. mspart

    Taha is 2nd seed and Zare is 3rd seed. Geno will be the 1 seed. As an American I am hoping that Gwiazdowski is in the top half (less likely due to unbalanced brackets), because I believe he matches up better with Geno than Akgul or Zare.

    Yes, such a loss. I wrestled at Canton High School and knew the family well. Their faith will get them through these tough times and they will meet up with Charlie agian one fine day.. For now RIP Charlie Clark, you are safe and in the hands of our lord and his son Jesus Christ.

    In the 2021 NCAA Finals these were the winning margins... 2 matches were decided by 1 pt (both 3-2) 4 matches were decided by 2 points (3 of which were a TD in OT) 3 matches were decided by 4 pts and then Lee won 7-0.

    Who has the better ears, Dake or Taylor?

    I think DT takes this hands down. KD has this amazing ability to only hear his own voice, which I am a HUGE fan of. DT has at least adapted to be able to hear Cael's voice, and I believe that is hands down the greatest attribute any of our current world team members has. I believe regardless of cosmetics, that takes it for DT.

    Only qualification is that your federation is in good standing with UWW. Each country can send one per weight.

    To be honest I wanted to start another thread trying to pin down who is really, I mean really truly, the best wrestler, Dake or Taylor. But I just felt there were already so many that it might give people the wrong impression. Like maybe I’m not paying attention to the other threads. Or that I only like threads that I start. Or that I think a thread that’s more than two days old needs to be ignored and started afresh under an almost identical name. Since none of that is true and there really are quite a few very good threads on the topic, I decided to hold the line and not add a new one. But then it really gnawed at me, why does everyone get to have their own Dake-Taylor thread but me? It seems a little unfair to me that I don’t get one when it seems like every other poster on these boards has one already. So I put my mind to thinking about it. I figured I might be able to find a true compromise position. My own Dake-Taylor thread but not a thread about who’s better, Dake or Taylor. I admit that this seemed at first impossible. I struggled with the very notion. I almost gave up when it hit me that there is a solution. We should vote on which of the other other twelve threads about Dake and Taylor started in the last week is the BEST one? Before ending I do want to mention that I think it’s absolutely fair game to include this one in the mix, only, obviously, if you feel this is indeed the best one.

    Honestly, until the first few matches at this Olympics, I felt that "that guy" was a better freestyler when he was competing as a collegian.

    People usually get busted years later when the testing catches up with the PED technology. There will always be a lag period. Unless they're using old school PED's, which would be foolish.

    I think the general sense that an Olympic Gold is better than a World Gold might involve the following perceptions: 1. Six weights as opposed to ten (so you are competing against the best of the best). Even the World champs and medalists at the non-Olympic weights have to go up or down to make a team. In the past cycle, Borroughs, Cox, Gwiz, Colon, and Green (all World medalists) didn't make the team. 2. It is now tougher to qualify to make a field of 16 in the Olympics than a larger field at Worlds. 3. Wrestlers (and countries) will focus their training and competition cycles more on the Olympics than Worlds, and hence take them more seriously. Thus, the competition will be more intense. For example, the US allows guys to take an Olympic redshirt but not a Worlds redshirt. 4. The prestige and status of an Olympic medal (or Gold) is and has been so much higher historically given the attention and awareness throughout the world. Many people don't know anything (or much) about wrestling until they (might) see or hear about it every four years. That being said, in some sports, the prestige of an Olympic medal is far less than another kind of championship. This is the case, for example, in soccer (the World Cup is the absolute height), tennis (the 4 grand slams are preferable to an Olympic medal), cycling (Tour de France), baseball, and some other sports.
