I know this whole thing is ranked by NCAA medals, but I'm sure I'm not going to be the only one to lol at Uetake being #10

 

Undefeated, Outstanding wrestler 2 years in a row at the NCAA Championships and Olympic champ months after winning his first of 3 titles.

But he would have shown up higher if his name would have been Abe!

This.  If Uetake is at #10, the ranking system being used is flawed.  He should be ahead of Branch at the very least.

Looks like they give 16 points for a 1st, a lot of These Wrestlers wrestled when there was only 3 Years eligibility, 12 Wrestlers on this list won NCAA EVERY year they were eligible, Certainly some of the 11 that only had 3 years eligibility would have been 4 Time Champs if they had 4 Years,   Uetake not winning NCAA if he had a 4th year would have been shocking,  Most people who saw him say Uetake was the best.

 

I know people are going to bring up Dan Gable losing to Larry Owings as anything can happen and it can but,  but the chances of ALL Eleven Including Uetake ALL Losing if they had a 4th Year has to be very close to ZERO.

Agreed, Uetake wasn't losing to anyone in the US from that era.

Also, it's crazy to think that John Smith couldn't make this list!

It appears it is based on.

1st = 16

2nd = 12

3rd = 10

4th = 9

5th = 7

So  J. Smith = DNP 2-1-1 =44 points

Ricky Stewart:  7,1,1,3 = 42 points   maybe 7th is worth 3 that takes Ricky up to 45 points.

Kenny Monday dnp, 2,2,1 = 40 points

I don't know how many times this needs to be said. This is purely math not a judgment.

It should be the three best years ...or first three years. It’s not mathematically Equivalent to  take 4 placements vs 3 placements On medal score. Take Pat Smiths best 3 vs Uetake’s best 3.

Then make your own version. He's spending the time and energy to do it the way he wants. I appreciate it and understand it.

I don’t think Uetake has an argument over Pat Smith (and yes I know these rankings are just based on math).  Regardless of the circumstances, 4 titles is better than 3 even if the guy with 3 never had a chance for 4.

Intermatwrestle and WIN both have Uetake 3rd overall ... best OSU of all time. Not sure about Flo since I don’t ha e a subscription to see it.

Uetake never lost in either folk or free, he won Olympic Gold while in college and again after, he was never challenged. John could big brother Pat after Pat won 4, and John was probably more dominate last two years than Pat.  Pretty sure if you asked John  and/or Pat who was the best ever OSU wrestler, I know who they would both say.

Sorry I was more just referring to in terms of college accomplishments, not necessarily “best,” in response to the suggestion to “take the medal score of tbe 3 best years.”
