    Who won the 2010 Big Ten Championship then at 149? I seem to remember it being somebody other than Metcalf...

    Great point, a 4xAA was able to improve his record against metcalf to 1-5.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    The more I think about it, the more it seems like boy vs man right now. I think Dake has a few years before he is fully developed and at this point he can't match Caldwell physically. I suppose he could win this match-up but seems doubtful and i could see it ending pretty brutally for him.

    There are plenty of other 49's for him to worry about as well, not just DC. He just doesn't strike me as being on a much higher level as the rest of the field (as Caldwell is). I do think he is better, but I wouldn't be shocked if he was beaten by someone other than Caldwell.

    Pretty sure he was responding to the point that Caldwell was the only person to beat Metcalf.

    I too think that Caldwell has the upper hand but he also has not wrestled in a year and a half. I'm sure he's been training but it's hard to imagine that he wouldn't be a little rusty still. So the question is can he afford to be rusty at a tournament like this? Is he that much ahead of everyone else?

    Listen, if we're all going to pretend that Caldwell is going to come back 100% as the same guy he was, that's fine, but it's an awfully big assumption given our history, as a sport, with shoulder injuries. Think Caldwell probably wins, but I don't think Caldwell is going to be the same guy he used to be, so I see this as 70-30 Caldwell, whereas I'd call it 90-10 if I thought Caldwell would be full strength...but he's not.

    Very good point. Dake not feeling so hot himself though. Still see Caldwell putting it on him but we will (maybe) see. Dake definitely wins rollerblade race though.

    "Beat" and "Man Handle" are pretty different. Caldwell is the only one to do the latter.
