How about these match-ups instead:

125-Spencer Lee vs. Stephen Abas   Guessing Lee

133-Yojiro Uetake vs. Dan Gable     Probably Uetake - I hear he was absolutely incredible

141-John Smith vs. Yianni Diakomihalis      John Smith

149-Nate Carr vs. Kyle Dake               Dake - He seems to find a way, + he's a 4 time champ

157-Lee Kemp vs. Jason Nolf          Lee Kemp the man

165-Mark Schultz vs. Jordan Burroughs    Mark Schultz - no contest

174-Dan Hodge vs. David Taylor        college Taylor I take Hodge.  Now, Taylor

184-Cael Sanderson vs. Gabe Dean      Sanderson

197-J'Den Cox vs. Kurt Angle         This is a good match up.  Both really tough.   No idea

285-Carlton Hasselrig vs. Stephen Neal     Going with Neal in this one. 

These are my picks.

I go Cael v. Mark Schultz or Cael v. Kevin Randleman - both better matches than Cael v. Gabe dean.

Good call.  Forgot about the Monster.  

Wasn't Mark Schultz a lot smaller than Cael?

Mark won three world freestyle golds at 82 KG. Cael wrestled freestyle at 84 KG. I think Mark may have been only slightly smaller.

I was referring to the collegiate versions of Mark Schultz and Cael Sanderson.  Didn't Schultz win his fist NCAA title at 167 and his last two at 177?  I thought Cael won his NCAA titles at 184 (3x) and 197?

So even though they competed in the same Olympic weight, it wouldn't be appropriate to match them up in a fantasy college match-up, right?

This is a pretty good list but how does Dean make it?  I’m no PSU fan but it has to be either Nickal (who as a soph beat Sr Dean) or Ruth.  

But either of those 2 vs Cael would probably be the match I’d want to see most.

Not a fan of teacher vs. student match-ups, especially in the case of Bo who refuses to wrestle his teammates David Taylor and Kyle Snyder in freestyle competitions.  With that in mind, I initially picked Gabe Dean to take on Cael.  But as @headache suggested, Cael vs. Randleman is far more intriguing.  

If we could go to some alternative universe where senior year Bo would wrestle senior year Cael, and try to rip his head off like they were strangers, then I would be all for it.

Some oldies but goodies:

Brent Metcalf vs Tom Brands - battle of the hard charging rhinos

Mark Churella vs Ben Askren - talk about funkytown

Darryl Burley vs Darrion Caldwell- slick throw-masters

Curly Culp vs Stephen Neal - couple a monsters

Kendall Cross vs Ricky Dellagatta or Randy Lewis @ 126 - a bunch a wild hairs

Andre Metzger vs Zain 

Lee Kemp vs Kyle Dake/Jordan Burroughs

Jimmy Haines/Joe Gonzales vs Stephen Abas

Flo recently did the all time state all star teams.  I disagreed with a couple of their picks and wanted to get others opinions.  I am a self aware Ohio homer but thought they got these ones wrong:

Eric Guerrero over Alan Fried-I would really like to hear from Okie State fans on this one.  Fried was one of my heroes growing up and was a freakin animal.  6 career losses and 5 of them were to Tom Brands.   As great as Guerrero was I don't see him beating Al Fried.

Chris Perry over Kevin Randleman-I'm more certain they got this one wrong.  Chris Perry was a great technician and super crafty but I don't think he would have had anything for Kevin's combination of quickness, power, and tenacity.  This may have been due to recency bias as most of those flo guys are to young to have watched Randleman compete in college.
