  1. Since we’re now mentioning non finals dominant upsets....and I hate to do it but....Cliff Moore dismantling on-his-way-to-the-Hodge Scott Moore in NCAA semis.
  2. Harris pinning Big Bruce yes dominant. Not an upset by seeds anyway. Harris was the 1 and Bruce 10.
  3. Just pointing out it changes the math. 34.5 is not what needed made up from those two. Closer to 40 I guess? Agree, good chance they could’ve done it
  4. Adding Nico’s hypothetical points means subtracting whatever they scored at 125 as well. Had an AA there.
  5. Late 70s 118 final unseeded Daniels pinned 1 seed Azevedo in 30 seconds.
  6. Joseph wasn’t the 1 seed but yeah a pretty solid upset.
  7. I’m still ok with my original answer. Pat Smith as first 4 timer and next in line of Smith bros and their freestyle accomplishments.... guessing some guys named Monday and Schultz had something to do with it. ain’t looking or linking right now but recall seeing video of Pat wrestling a young Satiev at some tourney.
  8. I don't know man, I think you're selling your guy a little short there. I think he compares pretty favorably to those guys. I mean any of these 'best ever...' things are just for debate purposes anyway, no way to prove who was better in many cases, but I don't think he's way out of his league with that group.
  9. the wiki thing is weird. the quote about Olympics 'Churella's collegiate success foreshadowed his qualification for the 1980 Summer Olympics, but the US' boycott of the event prevented the opportunity.[8]' , but the cited reference article mentions nothing about the Olympics, his qualifying, etc. his bio into national wrestling HOF mentions nothing about '80 the book wrestlers at the trials https://issuu.com/exitzero/docs/wrestlers_at_the_trials doesn't mention him in the '80 trials. His name comes up a few times in the '76 section.
  10. I thought the ‘80 team had Yagla at 149 and Kemp at 163.
  11. wondering same...can't recall where I saw it but something abut Fix saying he was taking classes but could still use Olympic shirt. like you said far from concrete....
  12. bored so I'll play. Pretty sure Pat Smith never made a world team.
  13. Yes Taylor was 2 x Hodge award winner. The relevance of that in comparison to Henson, Terry Brands, and Angle is....I'm not sure what. Since they had all finished NCAA wrestling before the award was first handed out.
  14. Jace did wrestle 195 as a senior and then 220 at Fargo. still a pretty big size difference between the brothers.
  15. Think that convo was with a current Big Ten head coach. Love that book.
  16. well only time will tell if Teasdale scores more at 125 this season than whoever PSU puts out there.
  17. couple decent out of state recruits this go round in Vulakh and Turley
  18. he threw apples at them
  19. Mike Mann deserves mention (I believe Lewboo when he still posted here might have said he was the guy). 2x runner-up including senior year where he beat 3x champ Ed Banach 3x times in regular season, only to lose 4-3 in NCAA finals. Some others that come to mind beyond steamboat charlie's list: Zaputil, Trenge, Mcfarland.
  20. Anyone mentioned 133 last year? Those two are freaking awesome but in a styles make fights kind of way I’d just as soon never see them wrestle again.

    Did those Iowa guys qualify as freshmen? Couple other Iowa greats who DNP as freshmen, in their cases cause they did not start: Terry Brands non starter 1-2-1 Chad Zaputil non starter 2-2-2 Think Steve Martin kept both those guys out of post season line-ups
  22. KTG119


    Not quite all top 3 but Steve St John went blood round-4-3-2.
  23. KTG119


    Jordan Burroughs DNP 3-1-1 Kerry McCoy DNP 1-3-1 TJ Jaworsky DNP 1-1-1 Ricky Bonomo DNP 1-1-1 John Smith DNP 2-1-1 Mark Schultz DNP 1-1-1 Nate Carr DNP 1-1-1
  24. KTG119


    And older school 3x champs in 80s who wrestled as freshmen but DNP (albeit wrestle back rules different in some cases where a guy might have been 1 and done but not all went out like that)
