Penn STATE in College Wrestling Posted April 3, 2013 · Report reply PA fan - on another forum, there is a thread discussing Pat Smith and questioning why he is not in the discussion as one of the greatest of all time. The general consensus seems to be that, although he is only one of three 4x NCAA champs, and the first to do it - his lack of post-collegiate credentials diminishes his status and removes him from the discussion among the greatest college wrestlers of all time. Based on your most recent post, I believe that you would place Pat Smith among the top 5 greatest college wrestlers of all time, since freestyle and post-collegiate success should be removed from the equation. Is this correct? (And, I am not arguing - I am just curious) Yes. Pat Smith is in the top 5 collegiate wrestlers of all time.
