    Jenkins is so hot and cold you dont really know which one will show up. The way he wrestles lately I see Taylor by Major or convincing Dec. Hall is a great wrestler but Taylor is just so damm good.

    Jenkins struggles on the bottom as it is. DT might be a bit too much on top.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Hall also has been majored (albeit by Jenkins) this year already.

    Cliff made Cael laugh...I saw it with my own eyes. And he touched his shoes without him knowing!

    My first impression of Dt was you gotta be kidding -less than 2 periods later he had TF'd Paul Young -I like Fittery but DT is ridiculous..

    If Taylor wins 4, and again, I advise that we CALM THIS STUFF THE EFF DOWN (see: Dustin Schlatter; Brent Metcalf), it wouldn't diminish or replace Cael's accomplishment's IMO. I'd probably be slightly more impressed with Taylor (and I'm nitpicking here, because, let's face it, 4 time champ undefeated is 4 time champ undefeated), because it will have been at a slightly more competitive weight range historically. That said, setting perfection as the standard is a heavy burden to put on people. People detract from Metcalf and Schlatter's accomplishments because they weren't able to maintain perfection throughout, when really what both guys did were remarkable (and Schlatter likely would have been even more remarkable if not for unfortunate injuries. Either way, both of these guys were touted at one time as "the next Cael" or the "best folkstyler since Cael". I specifically remember a post by a Minnesota fan claiming that if Schlatter won 4 titles, it would be FAR more impressive than Cael since he won his first title as a true freshman.

    Try to remember guys: perfection isn't a bar, it's a ceiling.

    A the beginning of the season I had him in the top 4 as a semi-finalist but I have to say the more I watch him the more I believe that his only challenge @ this weight will be Fittery who is pretty determined himself to win it all. That's coming from a guy who has been a big Bubba fan.

    At this point I would love to see him move up & take on Howe & JB.

    Eerily similar to things people were saying about Metcalf before he lost to Caldwell in 2009.
