    Did Herbert and Eggum ever match up. Cael was Brandon's obstacle.

    I only wish Dale Hellestrae could do the audio.....
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    Are we talking Herbert as a senior and Cael as a freshman? Then Cael by 2-3 points. Both as seniors (even if Cael's at 184) it's a major.

    Grips, I accept your wager.
    You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

    The match up of styles is not a good one for Herbert. He struggles with guys that are very technical and maintain good postion (i.e. Varner) and as far as postion wrestlers go, is doesn't get much better than Sanderson. Major Decision Cael.

Not to mention, his ankle pick would be one of the best ways to take Herbert down.

    As far as Varner owning Herbert, that is bullsh*t. Yes, Varner has had the upper hand the last couple of times they wrestled, but Varner was in full season (and right after) shape. Herbert was redshirting. I'm sure that Herbert's traveling circuit of workouts were not quite on the same level as training in the Iowa State room with Cael (lets not forget that Varner has yet to win a title...i mean...Pucillo!?!?). That match at midlands was even kind of flukey. Herbert almost took him down a number of times and got caught trying a stupid move. Herbert absolutely has the capabilities to be one of the greats.

    I'll take an early on sig bet that if Herbert and Varner wrestle in season, Herbert wins.

    I think you may be arguing a different point than the rest of us are. Herbert may in fact be one of the all time greats. Not sure anyone disputed that. Varner may never win an NCAA wrestling title. Again, not sure what that has to do with this topic. We understand Herbert was tired. We know Midlands doesn't mean much, Varner is a meanie, yes it was mid season, oh wait, it was just after season, well actually it was mid summer, freestyle is different, if it were MMA, Herbert would have won-wait Herbert tapped out, etc. We get it, Herbert can't be expected to beat Varner more than once out of every 5 attempts or so.

    You're right, now i'm convinced that Cael would not have beaten Herbert, unless any of the above mentioned factors were in place, or if they ever stepped on a mat under any circumstances. Glad we got that understood.
    Lets go Brent!

    I dont think Herbert could have beat Trenge so he has no chance against Sanderson.
