    When he wrestled Lister this year I could not believe how huge Dake was . Lister tried to intimidate Dake with head slaps and pushing him around yet after the first period Lister abandoned those tactics . The end score was fairly close yet Lister really never had a chance.
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    If I understand NCAA weigh-ins, the NCAA finals is the one time all year that the wrestler has many hours between weigh-ins and wrestling. I think that might explain why Dake had a couple of season losses (struggle making weight) but looked like an incredible animal in the finals. Of course he does rise to the occasion on the big stage. But I think weight issues make a difference as well. If he continues to be big for his weight, you need to get him before the finals. I think St John would be better off meeting him in the semis than the finals.

    Wasn't he piss tested freshman year after the finals?

    Like every other champion? Yes.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Spot on with this, Zapp. Every time I watch high level DI wrestlintg I am amazed how these guys avoid what seem like for sure cetain TDs, but Dake took this to another level
