    Ok, so we've established that nobody has any video of any of those matches? Damn. Really hard to believe, as big of a match-up as it was.
    Tough to say who wins that catchweight match. You've got to go with the man who won 3, compared to the guy with 1.

    I'd have to disagree with that statement.

    I'd have to agree with Trusty and unfortunately disagree with Zapp on the subject of my hypocrisy.

    Last year in my "25 in the last 25" (peace) countdown I dubbed Fried as "Askren before Askren was Askren." Fried went 2/2/Probation year but would have been heavily favored/1 and was 129-6 with five losses to Brands.

    Askren was as we all know 2/2/1/1 and was 153-8 with seven losses to Pendleton.

    Very similar careers.

    I disagree, essentially, since Fried competed against Brands and they were of similar age. Pendleton was older then Askren...but I see the point being made.

    Brands was 20 (born in April of '68, freshman year was 88-89) his freshman year of competition, so I'm guessing he was at least 2 (maybe 3) years older than Fried. How much older than Askren was Pendleton?

    Fried graduated in 94, two years after Brands. Askren graduated in 07, two years after Pendleton. The relationships still seem awful similar to me.

    I guess we can all agree that both Fried and Askren are two of the all time great college wrestlers, that both had 1 nemesis that stopped them from winning basically everything.

    I am right and you all are wrong. This is just the way of the world.
