    Looking back, was Dake really that great?

    I think the narrative at the time was that Dake didn't do much and leaned heavily on his elite riding ability, despite tremendous talent. This really wasnt the case, but I think it comes from two places. 1. His sophomore and junior NCAA finals were very reliant on the ride. More specifically his junior year Dake got a lot of crap from Iowa fans for just holding St. John down and they wanted stall calls. Was that deserved maybe? Would it have mattered? Absolutely not. Dake went out and took St. John down right away. Dake wins it 10 out of 10 times. 2. He was constantly being compared to Taylor who was a bonus machine. By comparison, his stats dont look as dominant or are even a bit underwhelming. In a vacuum he is still elite.

    Probably only a handful of coaches would get that call his way in the semis too.

    Im trying to stay consistent with your line of thinking, as you were the one suggesting the insignificance of the word little and how silly to argue over such a thing. And you still see it as just a little controversy although it was, by your own admission, one of the biggest stories of the NCAAs? If that is not enough to reach that status beyond a "little controversy", what would it take?

    But you did admit you were wrong to say it was a little controversy right? Because as we have established it was more than little. I mean its such an insignificant word, should be no skin off your nose to admit that your were wrong in the way you phrased that, and to do so is a tad misleading.

    Big bad bully you are! I can say this Lurker, there are few on themat.com who are as thoroughly pleased by themselves as you are. Doesnt change the fact it was a horrible call that never should have been overturned. Ever. Ive also been pretty consistent with that one. I also said that he has a highlight reel that will hold his legacy going forward.... what else do you want from me? Oh thats right, complete agreement.
