im gonna be honest with you i wasnt even thinking of the 2008 season when they ended up having like all that guys that made all-american eventually become a national champ and i wasnt even thinkin about the fact that burroughs was apart of that. i was actually underestimating jb. when i go back and think about the guys jordan beat and how easily he beat them i actually agree that i dont think dake would beat him by any means. i do think that for the first period it would be interesting and half of the 2nd period would be fun to watch but then dake would just gas and burroughs would just continue to put it on him. i say it ends up being a 10-5 or 9-4 match.
I feel pretty comfortable with Burroughs 2009 vs Dake 2012. Now Burroughs 2008 vs Dake 2012 would be interesting. That year (the magical year for 149) Burroughs got to the semis, losing a fairly close bout to Metcalf. That was the closest anyone came to Metcalf at the NCAA's that year. Probably Dake 2012 beats Burroughs 2008, but I'm not sure.
alright then lets do that.. dake(2012) vs burroughs(2008)
Well, if we do THAT Y not make it Metcalf vs. Dake ? JB was making a pretty big pull to 149-the next few years he thrived when fed .
After much reflection and insight from a few buddies (Natty Light) I am going to be the first to pick Dake beating the 2009 Burroughs. Dake is like the Tim Tebow of college wrestling. People keep saying he can't do something and he keeps proving them wrong. I say this with the one condition that it has to take place in the NCAA tourney. Just like Tebow leading the Broncos to the playoffs, Dake once again silences the critics.
IF it takes place at NCAAs I might take Dake, if it takes place at any other event my money is on Burroughs.
