    Only one four time NCAA champion. He was not undefeated. In 75 years of the NCAA
    Are there any math statistics majors out there ??
    What are the odds of a young wrestler joining a club --winning HS state four times, NCAA four times, undefeated and outstanding wrestler four times. Many subjective variables so the odds are astronomical !! Then win the Olympics.........
    I would bet one million dollars on winning the lottery, before betting in Vegas that what Sanderson did, that this feat will ever be repeated.
    The Sports Illustrated "second greatest" achievement --what is the "First" ?

    This was the single greatest "individual" collegiate achievment in the history of the world -- not just the USA.
    Can you imagine a runner, never losing a race in four years ??

    If you doubt me --do the math.
    I would love to see some numbers from a Math wiz

    Take care
    Edwin Moses did not lose a hurdles race for 11 years.

Who knows how much he will improve through high school, but if he improves much at all, he should be pretty dominant in college, and could quite possibly go undefeated. Obviously, the odds are stacked against him, but of all the people I have heard of, he sounds the most likely.
    Gold stole my thunder. Watching this kid wrestle...if anyone has a chance........... he does.
