    Legend has it these two western anti-heroes both wrestled for the University of Wyoming (because this is the college wrestling forum) and once had a two outa three match for Etta Place (aka Katherine Ross) with Sundance prevailing after hanging on to a slim lead by stalling.  This however did not stop Butch from sneaking around from time to time.

    Geez, if you are going to be pretentious at least get the expression right. It's "I'll take the latter"; meaning the second of your two choices, as opposed to a choice made at some indefinite future point in time.

    I completely agree  
    My hesitation on Lee’s wrestling (so excluding injury), if I had to pick, would be physicality. In the rare match he has lost, it is because he is overpowered.
     
    In the Iowa room, between lifting, coaching and rolling with the Brands, Gilman, Clark , etc that will quickly be improved.
     
    Can not wait for his debut Post redshirt. It is the one I am most excited about.
     
    Hall was an exciting one for sure, especially because there were two hammers (Zahid and Jordan) in his weight class. Still, wasn’t as exciting as Lee because Hall, while fun to watch, isn’t quite as active as Lee.
     
    Fix I am excited about as well, but he doesn’t quite have the credentials of Lee and in folk has had a few close matches. He really differentiates himself in freestyle with his incredible guts. He is entering a loaded weight class.
     
    Gable would be #1 on my list in terms of excitement, but the guys he will wrestle his first year are relatively weak compared to the hammers the rest of this list has. The best guy he will likely face his true freshman year is Nevills, who I am a fan of, but won’t have a championship. He will probably be a 2 time AA and makethe podium for the third time next year. He also didn’t have the credentials of the guys Hall, Fix and Lee have faced/will face.
     
    Lee on paper has the best credentials, although Gable may surpass him. Plus Lee was in an easier weight class. He does however have the skill set for folk. Arguably he is better suited for Folk, which is crazy considering his freestyle success. He can go with anyone on the feet, but he is also one of the best on top. That includes both urnimg and pinning. He is almost like a hybrid between Suriano (technical on the feet, never out position) although a bit more aggressive and Lizak on top, but arguably with better pinning abilities.
     
    Went on a bit of s rant here, but I have never been so excited for a debut in college. If he didn’t have Suriano and Fix in his class, I may even pick him to be a 4 timer, which isn’t something I tend to do.
     
    When all is said and done in 5 years. I wonder who will have the best career.
     
    Hall - 2 time champ, 4 time AA (maybe finalist depending on seed)
     
    Fix - hard to tell, given how stacked the weight is. Maybe 4 time AA, 1 time champ at 133?
     
    Lee - 4 time AA, 3 time champ if his body holds up.
     
    Gable - I have no idea who can beat him. Hvwt is tough to stay injury free and never get ridden out. I think he will have the best credentials out of all of them. I don’t think there is anybody better st hvwt, but if the USA programs keep putting out guys like the ones on this list, we amy just not know of the guy yet who will take out Gable his senior year or something. He has the most likely path to a 4 time champ.
