Taylor Nightmare

Recommended Posts

Ruth wins by major; Ness and Nelson both win by decision.

 

In that (very realistic) scenario....

 

Taylor goes out there needing to tech Caldwell for PSU to tie or pin him for PSU to win outright. If he doesn't get it done, this could be another nightmare for Taylor. And God forbid he makes a mistake trying to force a tech/pin and gets stuck. Even if he wins by decision or major decision, it will be yet another disappointing finals for Taylor.

 

On the flip side, if he needs a pin for PSU to win and gets it, it will be historic and help heal the Dake wounds.

I actually thought about this scenario when trying to decide which weight should end the night, 157 or 165.

 

I wouldn't call it a very realistic scenario though. Ness has never beaten Dieringer, and Dieringer, who has a very heavy cut, will be fully hydrated for the first time this tournament. Dieringer has to be considered the favorite, which is why they should end the night at 157.

Taylor could not only pin Caldwell but they could let him wrestle heavyweight and pin Nelson too and it still wouldn't heal the Dake wounds. Don't kid yourself. The team title is awesome in the moment, but at the end of the day people remember champs and legends. Guys like Dake.

Yeah, hardly anyone will remember 2 time Hodge winner 2 time NCAA Champion and one of the all time greatest scorers in NCAA history David Taylor.

 

They'll be throwing parties in Iowa City, Stillwater and Minnesota to celebrate his departure just because they are tired of him beating them up. But they'll hardly remember him.

 

He'll be recruiting the guys that wrestle most like him to Penn State, but they'll hardly remember him .

 

Yeah, no one is ever gonna remember this guy David Taylor. :D
