That was an easy one, lol. Leroy Kemp can still probably whip the ass of 90% of the guys in this forum, if not more :D Dake reminds me of him in some ways. 

More than 90%.  Kemp's reemergence in recent years, including on social media, shows he was living in world where aging did not occur for the 15 or so years he was disconnected from wrestling.

Dude, I was including EVERYBODY, not just guys who are at Kemp's weight.

I mentioned this in the recruiting pipeline tread, and these guys wouldn’t be in the discussion for greatest, but the number of successful Badgers hailing from Colorado makes me proud of our square-shaped State and have made me a Badger fan to boot.

Clum, Medbery, and Graff are the ones off the top of my head.

In addition to those, Dan Clum wrestled for at least one year at Wisconsin.

I loved watching Dan at UWyo. He sold me my Auto Opener Kershaw at their family archery shop, very nice family. I’ll never forget watching Tom get put on his back at the Pepsi Center. Colorado wrestling legend!!

I enjoyed a couple of visits to their shop as well.   Very nice people.  They started a very successful club and coached one of my sons for a long time.

Very nice! If I hadn’t moved to the 4 corners I’d have done the same with my boy.

I'm still disappointed Howe didn't win at least 2 titles. Chris Perry shut him down cold.

Howe did a great job considering his Achilles injury. He did reach 4 NCAA semis.

Not sure what happened in the Jarrod King final.

Perry was a beast, also. No shame there- that guy could bring it- brutal rider.

 

But yeah, I wanted him to win a few too.

When you say all his injuries out loud you really appreciate all that Howe accomplished and overcame. I wonder if he will wait to take Kennedy's spot, find his way back to Bormet, or move directly to an RTC or D1 head coach position next.

We also brought in John Hurlock at heavyweight, who had wrestled for U of Colorado til they dropped their program.

He had pinned Big Ten champ and #3 seed John Bowlsby first round of the NCAAs in '79 before becoming a Badger.
