    You got me there with that lineup. Add Zap in there and thats a salty line up. As far as the best lineup ever. I still have to think that the 1997 Iowa team is the best college wrestling team to ever step out on the mat. Im of course an Iowa fan, but that line up was ridiculous and what they did in Cedar Falls will probably not be matched again, if not for a very long time.

    Iowa had a lot of years in the 80's and early 90's that had eight or nine AA's. You'd have to go back and go through them all. The 97 team came on and peaked at the right time. Yes there was some studs on the team but you also had guys like Whitmer, Gillis, Uker and Ersland who just had great tournaments. Hand wasnt' even at his potential yet on that team. I'm sure there are other Hawkeye, OSU or ISU teams that have been more solid up and down the lineup. It's just that no other team came on and peaked like that team did.

    Which makes them the best though. Its all about what you do in March. Nobody cares what you did during the regular season when it comes down to it when looking back at great teams.

    Bingo. This is what I would have posted as well. I don't think anyone can beat a trio like this. I agree Ruth, DT but adding QW makes it weaker than Brands, Brands and Steiner. Ruth and Taylor just need to find another stud like them to fill in at 57 or 84 next year.

    Also remember that Taylor and Ruth have never won a title either. Given they are only both Sophomores but the fact remains. As it stands today Taylor, Ruth, and Wright arent even in a conversation for top say.....5-10 most dominant of all time. Now, give those guys another 2 years after this one and then this conversation will be totally different.

    I'm sure Cael is scrambling like crazy to replace Quentin Wright.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
