    Good point, he should have applied for a sixth year so that he could beat Chandler again

    As long as he didn't meet him in the NCAA tournament, of course.

    I love Zapp has ignored Lost's original claim through out the thread.

    He ignored it originally, and he ignored it again when Lost tried to bring it up a few posts back.

    Its a shame too because if he picked it up and ran with it he could use to boast his ridiculous "Chandler is better than CP" argument.

    Viva la Chandler! I don't know CP at all, but he was highly recruited and very talented obviously. Maybe he didn't work hard enough because of it, or maybe he did - and just caught some unlucky breaks. I do know that Chandler simply outworked dozens, if not hundreds, of guys who were more highly ranked coming out of high school. I'll bet every every coach in the country would love to have 10 of him, and CP too, for that matter. These two guys illustrate perfectly just how dang hard it is to AA at the DI level.

    You pretty much hit what I was trying to get at with your post. CP was a HUGE recruit coming out of highschool that had a lot of expectations put on him. During the regular season he lived up to these expectations for the most part and was always a top 5 guy. Unfortunately he had a lot of trouble putting it together at NCAAs (injuries played a part in this as well) and he was only a 1 time AA.

    Chandler, unless I'm mistaken, was a walk-on at Mizzou.

    Thus I would say that Chandler had a far, far, better career in terms of reaching his potential then C.P. did despite their almost identical finishes. But if you look at the list of who these guys have beaten and been beaten by side-bye-side, it should be pretty obvious who the more talented guy was.

    To which I reply, "Talented and a buck will get you on the subway." Maybe CP was the hardest worker on the team, but I doubt it. I'd take Chandler over CP everytime, If I were looking for a teammate. Again, I don't know CP, so maybe I'm way wrong and I apologize if that's case, but from appearances it seems Chandler had the better career, all things included.

    No I hear you I am not trying to compare their careers. I think Chandler accomplished far more with what he had then C.P. did, I'm just saying that C.P. had more to start with.

    I recently had some one say in my presence that a head to head victory is about equal to a AA finish. Now I dismissed it as nonsense, but it just seemed appropriate to mention here for no other reason than I remembered it. You hear the silliest talk from inexperienced wrestling fans all the time...
