3x Novachkov, 4x Marion, 4x Molinaro, 2x Jaggers

 

2x loss to Jaggers

 

Wow that is incredible career over other NCAA finalist.

 

149: Molinaro: 4- 13 24%

 

Very surprising all wins over Freshman Ness and 13 losses. The progression he had over his career was fantastic. Even for a 4x all american.

 

4x over Ness,

 

2x loss to Dake, 2x loss to Palmer, 2x loss to Metcalf, 4x loss to Russell, 2x Loss Ryan Williams,

1x Loss Jaggers

 

157: Dake:6-1 86%

 

1x St. John, 2x Molinaro, 2x Humphrey, 1x Marion.

 

1x loss to Humphrey,

 

Does have two wins over D2 National champs Hepburn and Jensen which i did not count.

 

165: David Taylor 5-1 83%

1x Loss to Bubba.

Nelson: 1-0 100%

 

1x over Rey,

 

Well we have a winner here in Nelson in win percentage.

 

I did this very quick so I may have missed some but this is pretty close I believe. Also I only did this years champs so others could have better records. I am very impressed with Russell who gets over looked because of close matches, but man does he just win and his total matches is impressive.

Dake ended up being 6-1. One loss to Reece Humphrey, and wins over Molinaro (2), St. John, Marion, and Humprey (2).

 

Russell's record is fantastic. I would love to see the records for Metcalf and Burroughs, both guys ran into tons of finalists. I know Metcalf has the same number of career losses as losses to Finalists. I picked them because they spring to mind as the two guys who met the most finalists. As a matter of fact, I'll take a shot at both guys:

 

Metcalf (not counting All-Star win over Caldwell)

 

Losses: Palmer, Caldwell (2)

 

Wins: Burroughs (3), Schlatter, Palmer (5), Jenkins (4), Lang, Churella

 

Record: 15-3.

 

 

Burroughs

 

 

Losses: Metcalf (4; more than Metcalf's wins because Metcalf was redshirting so I didn't put it on his record), Schlatter (3), Palmer, Jenkins

 

Wins: Palmer (2), Churella (3), Lang, JP O'Connor (2), Schlatter, Vallimont, Gillespie, Poeta, Howe, Caldwell (3), Leen

 

Record: 17-9.

 

 

Wow. 18 and 26 NCAA finalists faced! That's crazy. Burroughs lost his last match to a finalist in the NCAA semis to Metcalf and then ran off 12 straight wins over Finalists.

Howe: 9-5 64%

 

2x over Hatchett, 2x over Tyler Caldwell, 1x over Reader, 4x over Vallimont

 

1x Loss to Burroughs, 1x Tyler Caldwell, 1x Loss Lewnes, 1x Loss Reader, 1x Loss king

 

On a side note two of his loses his freshman year being majored by Dwyer and losing 9-3 to Moza Fay how was tough but by that score.

Q. Wright: 5-5 50%

 

1x over Bosak, 1x over Hamlin, 1x Honeycutt, 1x Hamlin, 1x Borschel

 

2x Loss Hamlin, 2x Luke, 1x Bosak

I'll probably miss some, but here's a beginning to Cael's record against NCAA finalists (SPOILER ALERT: IT'S 100%)

 

Wins: Mark Munoz (2), Vertus Jones (2), Brad Vering (2), Brandon Eggum (5), Damion Hahn (1), Daniel Cormier (6), Rob Rohn (1), Josh Lambrecht (3), Scott Barker (2), Jon Trenge (2)

 

So that's 26-0 with 14 of those wins by bonus. Not too shabby.

 

Losses: Sajid Sajidov, Yoel Romero, Sharif Sharifov, Khadjimourat Gatsalov

Pretty sure those guys all made the NCAA finals.

5 wins vs Brandon Eggum, the World Silver Medalist? 6 wins vs Daniel Cormier? Very Impressive.

1x St. John, 2x Molinaro, 2x Humphrey, 1x Molinaro.

 

1x loss to Humphrey,

 

Does have two wins over D2 National champs Hepburn and Jensen which i did not count.

 

That should be 1x Marion not Molinaro.

^^^ If Mr A wrestled four seasons - 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, and was an NCAA finalist in 2012, then I guess you might count the matches against Mr A for the 2012 season only? Probably means a lot more to beat an NCAA finalist the season he was an NCAA finalist, rather than several years before.

I may be missing a match or two... but Mike Frick has a pretty good history v. national champs (and finalists). During his career, Frick beat 7 different national champs a total of 8 times, in competition at 5 different weight classes. Although Frick's heaviest NCAA weight class was 134, 4 of the 7 champs he beat won their titles at 142 or higher. Frick's record:

 

WINS:

Dec-72: Sherman (IA), 9-7 @ 118. Sherman was NCAA champ @ 118, '73

Jan-73: Breece (OK), 14-4 @ 126. Breece was NCAA champ @ 118, '74

Feb-73: Martin (Ok St), 7-6 @ 126 (All Star Classic)

Dec-73: Milkovich (Mich St), 2-0 @ 126. Milkovich was NCAA champ @ 126 in '74

Mar-75: Barrett (Ok State), 8-2 @ 134. Barrett was NCAA champ @ 142 in '77

Mar-75: Beatson (OK), 10-5 @ 134 - Frick wins 1st NCAA title & OW award

Dec-75: Churella (Mich), 7-1 @ 150 (Midlands). Churella was a 3x champ

Jan-76: Bennett (Yale), 8-3 @ 150. Bennett was NCAA champ @ 142 in '75

Feb-76 Smith (IA), 10-4 @ 142 (All Star Classic). Smith was NCAA champ @ 142 in '76

Mar-76: Milkovich (Mich St), 7-4 @ 134. Frick wins 2nd NCAA title

LOSSES:

Jan-73: Glass (IA St), LBF @ 126.

Feb-74: Fritz (PSU), 4-3 @ 126. Fritz was NCAA champ @ 126 in 1975

Mar-74: Fritz (PSU), 8-6 @ 126.

Mar-74: Fritz (PSU), 7-2 @ 126.

 

TIES:

Jan-74: Glass (IA St), 3-3 @ 126

Jan-76: Smith (IA), 4-4 @ 142

 

Total:

10-4-2 (68.8%) vs. NCAA finalists

8-3-1 (70.8%) vs. NCAA champs

 

Addtional tidbit: In Frick's junior year, he won the NCAA title and OW award by winning 6 matches (he had a pigtail). All six of his opponents made All-American during their careers.

Were all those wins in college or is that counting some in senior level freestyle competition? (impressive no matter what the count)

I split with a Buckeye a few years before he won it all, and a freestyle win over an Okie Stater.

141: Kellen Russell: 13-2 87%

3x Novachkov, 4x Marion, 4x Molinaro, 2x Jaggers

 

2x loss to Jaggers

 

Wow that is incredible career over other NCAA finalist.

 

 

 

 

Really should be a 4xer. People who look at scores only won't realize how dominant he was and in hard weight classes.

 

And the sad thing is if he didn't redshirt, he'd have denied Dake from being a 4xer.

He do think he should have been a 4x AA. He should not have lost to Cody Cleveland his fresman year in the round of 12. Losing to Jaggers in the Quaters after beating him 2x was tough but everyone knew that was going to be a tough match. And I still cant believe he got Pinned in a tilt by Ryan Prater in the quaters after teching him and beating him another time.

Kellen was a very special competitor, especially his last 2 years....he beat some other very tough guys in his wt. class too, like Kennedy and Thorn.
