  1. I liked Gorilla Hulk and Highlight Humphrey
  2. So if 1 in 350 High School wrestlers starts on a D1 team, and 8 in 78 Starters become All Americans then that translates to 1 in 3,412 high school wrestlers go on to become a D1 All American. I would say that's hardly a participation trophy (fun fact this also translates into 1 in 27,300 high school wrestlers becoming a D1 National Champ). Final argument - if you can provide me with an example of 1 eighth place finisher in the weakest weight in the past couple of decades that wasn't an absolute monster I think you'd have more of a leg to stand on. Contrarily, I can point to 100s if not 1000s of amazing wrestlers who never all americaned. #keep8
  3. Agreed Burroughs is the GOAT - I just thought it was an interesting fun fact
  4. People always focus on Dake's 4 titles in 4 weights, but another fun fact is Dake has wins over 3 US World Champions (Taylor, J'Den and Burroughs). I have to imagine this is pretty rare (mostly because I don't think the US ever had so many World Champions at the same time and similar sizes. Burroughs never wrestled J'Den right? I'd have to imagine Dake has one of the most impressive onshore win resumes - I put some of the more notable ones below. Who else am I missing? · J’den (world champ) · Burroughs (world champ) · Taylor (world champ) · Reece Humphrey (3x world team member) · Molinaro (5th Olympics) · Dieringer (3x NCAA champ) · Imar (2x NCAA Champ) · Andrew Howe (NCAA champ) · Derek St John (NCAA Champ) · Montell Marion (2x NCAA finalist)
