Thread: Any College kids that can challenge Burroughs?

    Didn't Pat Smith have Schultz and Monday to contend with? I think he lost to those guys. There's a video on youtube of him wrestling Saitiev- it does not go well.

    Alger won a world silver medal, I think.

    I think Howe's success against Burroughs is a bit overblown. He won one period in two matches. I suppose any of the good defensive wrestlers- Howe, Marable, Caldwell- have a chance to try and stall Burroughs out but hard to do it two matches in a row, JB is just so quick.

    I haven't watched enough Taylor video to have an good opinion on him. So far he's been beating the crap out of subpar (compared to international guys) opponents, hard to say how he'll do against the next level up. It would definitely make for an exciting final though, as opposed to more guy like Howe or Paulson (the favorites IMO) making it through.

    I'm still riding with Howe.Although ''push outs '' and ''leg grabs '' make me want to puke.
    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.

    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Are the OTTs seeded in any shape or form or is all draw like Intl?

    I think there is some sort of seeding iirc..

    Yes, it is a seeded double-elimination tournament. Either Howe or one of the Paulson's should be the #1 seed, I'm not sure who won their most recent head-to-head. At 74 kg the winner will wrestle Jordan Burroughs, who has earned a "bye" to the final through his World Title last year.

    So then I would say our chances of seeing any combo of Dake vs DT vs Paulson vs Howe is fairly likely.

    Don't sleep on Poeta, he's had some injury issues but is so damn good on his feet.
