    The count is 0 & 2... don't count on a fastball down the middle.

    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    My vote would go to Burroughs but I wouldn't have a problem with Oliver winning.

    I think it should go to Oliver. As talented and dominant as Burroughs was this year, he didn't even seem interested in pinning, rather just racking up points using his unstoppable takedown offense. Oliver is the more complete folkstyle wrestler. Burroughs is the best neutral wrestler that I have ever seen in the college ranks and has the potential to be equally as dominant in international freestyle.

    Stats, in terms of the Hodge, point to Oliver.

    Criteria:
    1. Record
    2. Pins
    ...

    Oliver - 9 pins
    Burroughs - 6 pins
    Robles, Reader, Russell only other undefeateds, but they fall behind in #2 criteria.

    JB was dominant, as was Oliver... but nothing says 'dominance' like a pin. And Oliver wins the #2 criteria.

    I think it should be Burroughs. Cause he would go for pins he just did it a different way. He used deep doubles straight to the back to try to get pins and backers. He never was satisfied with getting tech falls and majors he was always looking for the most amount of team points.
