    I certainly think it is possible for Taylor to catch Burroughs but I wouldn't say i expect it. Taylor is extremely talented but a lot of extremely talented wrestlers are never world champions. It seems like some people expect Taylor to surpass Burroughs and I don't necessarily see things the same way. I'll stick with the guy that has won a world champioship

    Yea I have always been surprised that there is no weight in between 66 & 74.

    The only other Sophomore to win the Hodge would be Cael. So there you go. However Askren won it 2x & didn't do well internationally.

    Askren wrestled freestyle seriously for one year and was our olympian. Not a great example.

    I re-watched the Howe-Burroughs match. Looks like Howe gassed at the very end, thus losing on the push out. That was after being in season for NCAA. Is he (Howe) expected to be on top his game right now?

    I like Taylor to be the best challenger. Maybe his constant offensive assault will be a the best chance at getting by Burroughs, but in the end, I just want to see whoever gets there come home with gold around their neck.
