  1. And that’s the responsible position. We don’t have enough information, and we don’t know how it’s virulence compares to previous variants. The anti vax crowd, probably in an effort to downplay the need for vaccination, jumped the gun and claimed the severity of Delta was less than that of alpha or other previous variants. Turns out it is more harmful. As you mentioned, with Omicron we just don’t know.
  2. Cass, Kerk and Schultz beat him without breaking a sweat. He’d be giving up between 30-70lbs. HW is a deep division.
  3. Doubt Ferrari would even AA at HW, let alone beat the most talented HW wrestler in NCAA history.
  4. DT. Cael’s college success doesn’t make up for an additional World and Yarygin gold.
  5. Hopefully Cox can mentally regroup and win bronze. Don’t want him quitting like he did in Poland

  7. Very close. An argument could be made for either resume. Dake had an all-time great collegiate career so that counts for something. Internationally I give Taylor the slight edge. 2 world/Olympic golds (in a more competitive weight class) + Yarygin gold vs 2 golds in a less competitive weight, 74kg Oly bronze + Yarygin silver.
  8. Didn’t know about RBY. Darn. With regard to Carr, he’s wrestled 3 years in college at 157, or 3lbs more than 70kg. Lots of guys are wrestling outside of their “natural” weight class. I suspect his decision to not wrestle has little to do with 70kg, and more to do with what you touched on in your last paragraph. I’m not saying any of them should or shouldn’t. Just that I’m disappointed from a fan’s perspective they aren’t. I think Kerk and Carr have medal potential.
  9. Kinda bummed to see some of our top prospects missing from the list. RBY, Carr, Ferrari, Kerk come to mind.
  10. You need to reread my post. I said aside from matches where he was injured, Taylor has not lost since those matches with Cox. And 86kg is still considerably more competitive than 92. Yaz is a better wrestler than anyone Cox has beaten in any of his world or Olympic tournaments. Recency matters and you’re comparing a guy who can’t even win in Poland to an Olympic champ. It’s ridiculous.

  12. He lost to Cox at the WTT 4 years ago. And I’ll remind you, those matches were after DT had been wrestling all day. Since then, apart from his injuries, DT has not lost and has won Yarygin, World and Olympic gold in a more competitive weight class. Cox can’t even place at the Poland Open while DT is winning Olympic Gold. For now the two don’t belong in the same sentence.
  13. DT Gable Snyder Gilman Dake Hard to take anyone seriously who has Cox in the top 5, let alone above someone like Taylor.
