I was just watching some videos from a few years ago and saw Burroughs piss-pounding gillespie in the Semis.
I think most of us would agree that the 2008 149 weight class was probably the most stacked of all time (or at least the last several decades) and that 157 of 09 didn't have the same level of overall depth. However the top end of the weight was pretty extraordinary, with two undefeated wrestlers and two with one loss each
One thing I noticed was that Burroughs beat no less than THREE returning NCAA champs that year enroute to winning his first title. (Schlatter at the UNO open, Leen at the scuffle, and Gillespie in the semis). I'm wondering what other wrestlers have accomplished a feet like that?
