Wrestlers unbeaten streaks

Recommended Posts

Unbeaten, not win, streaks as some had ties.  If the History of Collegiate Wrestling had a different stat than the school's web site I went with the former as being more reliable.  Note that some historic figures don't make the list simply for lack of matches (Yojo Uetake, Dan Hodge, etc).

1) 159 Cael Sanderson (IA St)

2) 103 Lee Kemp (WI)

3) 98 Pat Smith (Okie St)

4) 96 Dan Gable (IA St)

5) 94 Zain Retherford (PSU)

6) 90 John Smith (Okie St)

7) 89 Jim Zalesky (IA)

8,9) 88 Kerry McCoy (PSU), Gwiz (NC St)

10, 11) 87 Chris Taylor (IA St), Ben Askren (MO)

12,13,14) 84 Ed Ruth (PSU), Gray Simons (LH), Mike Land (IA St)

15) 83 Stephen Neal (CSUB)

16) 82 Alex Dieringer (Okie St)

17) 77 Kyle Dake (Corn)

18) 76 Cole Konrad (MN)

19,20) 74 Troy Steiner (IA), Mike Sheets (Okie St)

21) 72 Sammy the Bull Henson (Clemson)

22,23) 69 Brent Metcalf (IA), Tom Brands (IA)

24) 68 Bo Nickal (PSU)

25,26) 67 Mark Ironside (IA), TJ Williams (IA)

Shouldn’t Bo Nickal be 23rd with 68 straight wins?

Some of the issues with the sport's records are what counted and didn't count. We can't retroactively apply rules that weren't the case back in the day. 

Kemp is one example. Under the current ruleset, he would have finished with 104 wins in a row, since the All-Star Classic and matches against non-collegians don't count. 

Kemp's win streaks at the time stopped with a loss to Pete Galea at the Northern Open. That streak was 43. That loss would not count today. His tie vs. Kelly Ward at the East-West All-Star Classic would also not count today, but that would have stopped the win streak at 55. One thing to also consider is if you want to retroactively apply the rules and remove his losses and ties, you also have to remove his wins from the countable record - which also includes a win over Gable in 1976 at the Northern Open. 

If you want to apply the rules of the era and remove the postgraduates, his win streak is 94. 

Cael Sanderson would have more than 159 wins on his record if today's rules were applied to his record - when Cael was coming through college, matches against NJCAA opponents didn't count on your record. Now, they count, they just aren't used for D1 qualification standards.

Well, I agree Jason.  Wins like pins are a rabbit hole one doesn't want to enter.
