  1. Biased because it was my year but NY 2005 the group of 15 D1 champs (14 if you don't include 96lbs) went on to some amazing things: NCAA Champs: Nickerson, O'Conner, Gillespie UFC Champ: John Jones Superbowl Champ: Art Jones All Americans: Ruggeriello, Alton Lucas UFC/D3 All American/D1 All Conference Chris Wade D1 multiple time Conference champ Ed Bordas D1 Conference place winners: Ausitn Meys, Ryan Patrovich (at one point was ranked first in D1) Overall studs but didn't continue Tom Magnani (Senior National AA), Ricky Scott (Senior Nationals 3rd beat NCAA Champ Jay Borschel along the way)
  2. Good call - Ruth would top Dean. I like NHS67's point system but don't want to go back and redo it. It's easy to get jaded with so many people coming back in the high 30s but you take guys like Burroughs coming in at 28, Mcdonough 29, Ramos 27, Delgado 24, Gilman 24, Valenti 26. Incredible how many guys didn't have one "bad" season
  3. I put an asterisk next to Dean because that's not a year he won. I guess question should athletes only be eligible in the years they won.
  4. I'd be curious to see if anyone can put together an all 2000's team using a rules based approach. Rules: Points are assigned to career placings, if you pick an athlete for a weight other than their senoir year future placings are worth half points. Example: 1st - 10 points 2nd - 9 3rd - 8 4th - 7 etc. Freshman Dake would have 25 points (10 for the year he won and 3 half 10's for future years) where senior Dake would have 40 points. 125 - Stephen Abas 37 points - Nico 36, Nickerson 34 Haze 33 Angel Escobedo 31 133 - Johnny Thompson 37 points Eric Juegens 36 Cory Clark 34 Nahshon 33 141- SR Stieber 40 points Teyon Ware 34 149 - SR Zain 36 points 157 - SR Jason Nolf 39 points 165 - SR Dake 40 points Dierenger 38 Talyor 38 Oliver 37 Mark Perry 37 Joe Hesket 37 Hendricks 36 174 - SR Ben Askren 38 Points Andrew Howe 36 *184 - Ed Ruth 38 Dean 37 Points Herbert 37 197 - SR Cael Sanderson 40 points SR Bo Nickal 39 points Jden 36 Varner 38 Rosholt 38 285 - SR Synder 39 points Konrad 36 Mocco 38 Gwiz 32 I filled in the easy ones.
  5. Can you pick their weights? I don't see how they lose any duals 125 - FFT 133- Steiber 141- Dake 149- Zain 157 - Dieringer 165- Taylor 174 - Ruth 184 -Bo 197 - J'Den 285 - Snyder
  6. I liked Gorilla Hulk and Highlight Humphrey
  7. 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
  8. Agreed Burroughs is the GOAT - I just thought it was an interesting fun fact
  9. 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)
