  1. I agree, Taylor also has the biggest frame of the three. I have heard that Taylor consistently beat Ruth in the room a couple of years ago. Is/was this true? Perhaps they could take a year off to lift hard and Taylor could bump to 185, Ruth to 211 after the 2016 Olympics as I think he has the frame to do so as well. This assumes that Varner leaves his shoes on the mat in Rio.
  2. KY- Campbellsville University (NAIA, like the other three)
  3. Is it just me or should being a World Team Member count the same as being a NCAA Champ? I love the idea but think the formula needs tweaked a little. About the older guys and the Tblisi tournament, it's really not fair to the younger guys because the tournament doesn't exist anymore, I don't believe. I guess you could put the Yarygin in it's place but I don't like the idea. The other argument is the highest level one reached when they competed as opposed to longevity which is obviously impossible to judge statistically but some are clearly above others. This has to be John Smith for me as he was simply awesome from every position, it helps that he won 6 straight World/Olympic titles.
  4. I almost hate to propose this because it goes against tradition but what if we just dropped Greco altogether? To be honest, the last exciting Greco match I remember watching is Paulson/Hall and that was simply because it lasted longer than any other I have ever seen, in any style. If we dropped Greco then we could argue that the two genders are equal and then fight for more weight classes, in each gender for that matter. Thoughts?
  5. I think Howe would big boy Dake and Taylor, Taylor more so. People get wrapped up in Dake's 4 titles, which is an incredible feat, and then think he is automatically ready to challenge Burroughs for the spot. I think Dake struggles with both Howe and Paulson. I pick one of those two to wrestle Burroughs.
  6. Didn't Mocco play football at Oklahoma St. one year? I believe there was also a controversial bet regarding this as well. I never did see Hittdog post on here again come to think of it.
  7. What about Greg Jones as a sophomore? Was undefeated all year and then goes 0-2 at NCAAs. The next two years he goes undefeated to be a 3x champ.
  8. This is a good idea but what impact would it have on the college guys who are preparing for the US Open? Already most years it's a quick turnaround, this would not let them train freestyle hardly at all before competing in the most important Olympic Qualifier and 2nd biggest event on the calendar. Thoughts?
  9. So which World Team did Dake make while still in college? Because if that scrub Cael made one certainly Dake should have. To be fair Sanderson never had to go through the reigning World Champ and eventual Olympic Champ. Lol, I stand corrected! Cael never wrestled a good wrestler. Ever. I never said that lol. Jeez talk about twisting one's words...
  10. Cornell is the state school of Ivy League schools. ;) I didn't want to say it but I haven't exactly heard such good things about Iowa St as an academic institution...

  12. I think it should be noted that Dake attended an Ivy League school where I believe he was an Academic All-American all four years. Not saying that Iowa St is not a good institution but Ivy League means something. To balance all this and have all the success he's had is just incredible. All this together makes him the greatest collegiate wrestler of all time.
  13. An example of how great technique beats strength every time.
  14. Not only that but he did it at an Ivy League school and has been an Academic All-American all four years. All those things together I think makes Dake the GOAT.
