Thread: David Taylor vs Kyle Dake next year?

    Totally agree! Taylor has never wrestled anyone with Dake's defense. Anyone think Taylor ankle picks Dake? With his stance, I don't think so. The obvious answer is to watch Taylor score all kinds of points on lesser wrestlers and then think he'd do that to Dake, now one of the all time college greats. Dake gave up 2 takedowns the entire year, zero points at last years nationals, a couple points this year. This would be an epic battle and I'd love to see it. Conventional wisdom says Taylor, but I say Dake! DC

I say that if they wrestle during the season Taylor wins, in the NCAA I gotta go with the guy who is undefeated in three years there.

    Of course this example is totally irrelevant to any Dake vs Taylor discussion, but when did the taking apart happen? It was 8-5. DC

    This reminds me of when he was in high school and everyone wanted him and Colin Palmer and him to meet. Taylor went up to meet him and then just took him apart.

    That match was DT's senior year in HS--2009. Both of them were 4-time Ohio St champs, I'm almost positive.

    I am surprised at everyone thinking that Dake would be dumb to move up. He may not win his fourth, but as a competitor that he is he may just do it because he loves the challenge. Yeah, he may do it in the all star thing, but either way, I think he would welcome the challenge. Like I said, I would take Taylor, but I'd love to see it. The Dake ride vs the Taylor ride. The Taylor takedown vs the Dake defense. Classic mathup in my mind.

    Palmer is much older than DT, how could they have met in high school? DC

    I believe that he is no longer wrestling. I know that he enrolled in tOSU but I'm not sure if he's still there.
