    I like the list, but Missouri's emergence from the cellar of not just the Big 5 but all of wrestling and getting our first national champion and first top-3 national placing is a pretty good moment.

    Great list, I might also include Brandon Florida losing it's first dual in 34 years to South Dade.

    Ahh yes, that could definitely make it into the top 10.

    No. 1 (2000) Rulon Gardner defeats Alexander Karelin for Olympic Gold
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    Yeah, I had a tough time with that one... I feel his individual victory was definitely more impressive than any one victory Sanderson had, however, because Sanderson's undefeated career spanned four years I felt it was more impressive.

    I would have given more cred to rulon if he had actually scored a takedown against karelin....not the dumb clinch
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    I'm glad someone agreed with me, I had a hard time with that because I don't think that the loss is that incredible but the entire streak of nearly 34 years is mind boggling.

    Or if AK wasn't hurt -grown men used to just walk off the mat against the Experiment in his prime .

    I do think we will see higher quality wrestlers coming out of Brandon now that they aren't trying to protect a streak like that.
