Honestly I don't think it would matter. Burroughs is the only one of those four I see beating him in folkstyle, and he graduated. With an offseason to grow into 165, beating Burroughs wouldn't be out of the question either.
In my opinion, the best three wrestlers in the country last year were 1) Burroughs, 2) Taylor, 3) Oliver.
Taylor wasn't even the best guy at his weight class. Let's be real.
Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.
So your Hodge vote would have gone to him if he beat Bubba?
No I still would have given it to Burroughs. Burroughs was utterly dominant, had a dominant win over one of the best wrestlers in the country (Howe), and finished his second undefeated season. When all other things are equal (which they pretty much would have been if Taylor had won his last match), I say give it to the senior finishing up his second undefeated season.
