Was it? Didn't the top-tiered competition at 141 redshirt that year except Marion? No Russell, No Thorn, No Kennedy, etc?

I thought Dakes 141 field was very good.

Sorry, this is just nuts. I watched Dake since 7th grade. He would have been a many more time state champ, but got caught and pinned while way ahead in the state semis as a freshman [I was mat side].

The next year he demolished state champs, and those that pounded state champs.

His only loss after that was to Paddock as a JR. Who was excellent. Dake was a NY 2 xer in amazing weights losing 2 X in 4 years and beat many future D1 guys. Yup... no talent there. No way he was a "top-notch athlete".

I truly find it fascinating that people are so insecure they need to boost their egos by sitting behind their keyboards and putting down kids and now adults.

Dake was a standout kid in HS.... extremely impressive. In college he did what no one else ever did... 4 titles in 4 weights. And you actually saying he is not talented?

It must be painful to be that insecure.

What are you talking about? Nobody in this thread has said anything disparaging about Kyle Dake in any way, shape or form.

Nice try--> "argues against him being a top-notch athlete"

Ugh. I think you should re-read all of my posts in this thread if you think I am disparaging Dake with that comment taken out of context.

Curious if you have a point here.

 

I'm curious as to how you could do both. Indoor track is the same as wrestling season. Outdoor track is a spring sport, as is baseball. I suspect that he did track early in HS and finished with baseball, which he probably liked more. 

 

I'm not putting him down. I'm a huge fan of his.

Maybe I will then.

 

I've heard Dake's singing voice is thin and reedy. Plus he has bad taste in music.
