    I really don't know how many times he has been down in his career, but I do know that his style of wrestling has greatly changed since his freshman year when he was truly an amazing wrestler (one of the best true freshman ever). He just doesn't rack up the points much any more like he used to. If he makes it to the finals this year, I will be surprised. I expect him to go down next round.

    I think it will be a high scoring match, with DS winning. Although Caldwell has had some great wins this year, he's also lost a couple shockers. Caldwell's a home run type of wrestler, which should make for a hell of a match.

    If I'm a DS fan, I'm worried that he wont' be able to take Caldwell down. If DS can't score from neutral, he's hosed.

    I'm calling DS 10-7.

    Exactly!!!!!!
    I don't want a injury timeout filled finals. I want action, and could care less who wins!

    There hasn't been this much talk about a NC State wrestler since Tab Thacker was dominating the unlimited division.

    jeez, a tab thacker reference - i haven't heard his name in over 20 years. didn't banach take him to task back in the day. i'm trying to remember...but, the 80's are very hazy to me - all that terrible music and wine-coolers being sold in 2 liter bottles...

    was just googling thacker - the nc state official sports site says that he "wanks fourth with 92 career victories..." that's some pretty good proof reading on a an official university website. hey kids, go to NCST and learn to reed and rite!

    on my question - he was 3rd in 83 when banach won his (i think) 2nd title. wayne cole of ISU was 2nd. i saw cole and banach wrestle in a dual meet at carver hawkeye arena (it was nearly brand new) back then and banach tried to throw cole (who was as big as thacker - 400+ lbs) and ended up pancaked...he avenged the loss at the NCAAs though. his little brother lost to mike mann of ISU for his first (and only) home loss in his career and also avenged it in the NCAAs.

    I probably should have used Scott Turner as my reference. He won MOW only giving up a single pt in the tourney. But Thacker is better known from his Police Academy days.
