Zapp--thanks for posting the Dake vs Taylor bout. Dake pulled off 2 BIG moves and deserves a lot of congratulations for his dominating win. I don't think he goes up to 165 unless 157 proves too hard of a pull. I agree that Dake looked bigger than DT there, but he always looks that way. I don't think that Dake would win next year at 165. I don't think he beats Howe and I also think DT beats him in folkstyle. But Dake is one tough customer (kind of an understatement for an already 3x NCAA champ with a year to go!).
Here is what I want to see: Dake, Taylor and Howe all in the same weight class.
Here is what I don't want to see: People saying someone is ducking someone else because they all aren't in the same weight class.
I don't think any of these guys are scared to wrestle each other or scared to put their national titles on the line. It would be great for the sport in a fan's perspective but ultimately it is their individual and team decisions that really count. But selfishly, I am really hoping they all go 165. Actually if DSJ moves up too, he could play spoiler role for any of the 3 that look past him.
Taylor might be scared after that match.
Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.
