Who was the best wrestler from each school (all-time)!

Recommended Posts

Until Robert Parish gave Laimbeer a little payback with a cross face that wasn't cross, but right in the middle of the face.

That era was the golden era of the NBA.

 

Lambeer blasting Bird was an all time sports moment for me.

 

Too bad the league went wimp.

Buddy Lee is an impressive guy. He came to my high school practices a few times in the late 80s while he was at Quantico and training to make the Olympic team. He put on some jump rope exhibitions and helped out with the team. I saw him recently at Coach Legge's funeral and he still looked like he could do some damage. I believe he ended up placing 6th at the Olympics in Greco.

 

Buddy Lee - wow, haven't heard that name in a long time.  Props to the guys that remember him.  I couldn't stand him in college, very cocky, at a rival school - loved it one year when our guy pinned him in our annual dual. Of course, I learned down the road that Buddy Lee is one of the good guys (and my teammate, while good, never beat him again IIRC).  Years ago I saw a book on the shelves at Barnes and Noble, 'Jump Roping by Buddy Lee'.  I should have bought the book then, never found it again.  What did Lee wind up doing, BTW - did he make a career of the USMC?

Gotta give Dave Auble an honorable mention for Cornell - 51-1 NCAA career record, two time undefeated NCAA champ, 1962 US freestyle champ and 4th at worlds, 1964 US Olympic team, and 4th at the Oympics - losing only to eventual champ Yojiro Uetake.

Sorry in advance for any typos but once again voice texting. It's not often I get to add to the conversation like this. As far as Army goes, one of my hometown boys Phillip Simpson.

 

Now let's get to Iowa. If you're talking college and everything beyond then it's probably Tom Brands. If you're talking just Iowa, then I would go with the Banach brother who won three titles. In fact, he might take it even if it was his entire career but certainly college. Three titles and a runner-up I think plus he was at a heavy weight which is much harder than the lower weights.

 

But what a great topic!

Yes, a few of us now-- have commented on this topic-- in a real positive way. Perhaps due to the fact that the topic is relevant to just about all of us.

 

I am currently 'thinking through' a possible post for near future. I get it ! You won't hold your breath.

University of Northern Iowa had two undefeated three time champs - Bill Koll and Keith Young. How do you pick one?

 

Koll was considered the more dominant of the two.  He had a higher pinning percentage than Young and the NCAA slam rule was changed because of him.  Koll was also the first 2x winner of the NCAA tournament MOW award.  I'd go with him.

my only thing with Ed is he lost 3 times as a senior. greatest ever at Iowa and 3 losses in last season? but yeah he was a bad dude and this is a great topic. despite what I just said I do think Ed is on the short list along with Brands, Lincoln, Joe W, TJ W (only 2 titles, but only 1 career loss and best winning % has to count for something), Davis, and Zalesky (didn't he win out with like an 80 match win streak?)

Is that Zalesky that's the coach at Oregon State now?

yes and here's the college wrestling details from his Oregon St coaching bio>

 

'Zalesky wrestled for Iowa in the early 1980s and was a four-time All-American and three-time NCAA champion at 158 pounds, ending his Hawkeye career with an 89-match winning streak. He was named Outstanding Wrestler at the 1984 NCAA Championships and Amateur Wrestling News named him the Wrestler of the Decade for the 1980s'

Thank you. On a side note his brother, Lenny Zalesky, is the coach at perennial Division II power Cal Baptist. This is their last year in Division II. They will be going to division one next year but they will be ineligible for the postseason for 4 years.
