    Default Cael Sanderson vs. Jake Herbert

    Obviously Cael never lost. But I haven't following college wrestling long enough to remember any of his opponents. Would Herbert hold his own against Sanderson, or would it not be close? Thoughts? Insight?

    It wouldnt even be close. I watched alot of Caels matches when he was in college and none of his matches were ever competitive. If he was feeling it he could have TF'd anyone at anytime. As good as Herbert is he couldnt carry Caels jock.

    Herbert only lost 1 match in his last 2 college seasons and beat Perry at least 3 times that one year (Perry was in the finals the year before that and was champion the following 2 years).

    Cael would likely win, but I wouldn't discount it as quickly as you have. And he did have a few close matches - Hahn for instance

    If his understudy, Varner throws Herbert around, I would imagine Cael would make him his woman.

    cael would smoke him. look what he did moving up to 197 and beating trenge. http://www.thewrestlingtalk.com/wres...kaTIwlMCk.html herbert would not have even prevented a challenge. herbert beating perry, a 165 lber, hardly sways my opinion. but, it's just that an opinion.
    but then again, i may be retarded

    Cael would beat Herbert. He knows how to manage a match better and Herbert takes too many chances that Cael would probably win the match by anywhere from 6-10pts (this is also a reason why i like watching Herbert wrestle so much). 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 wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    I'd say Cael by around 6-8.

    If Grips or I were doing the live text for this hypothetical, it's safe to say that the word "pwn" would make a cameo appearance. Cael would be him however bad he wanted to, just like he did w/ everyone.
