Dake winning 4 titles is even more impressive in my mind because he will win titles if he beats Taylor at lower to middle weights. I have always been of the opinion that the lower to middle weights by far and way hold the better athletes than the upper weights. Sorry if people disagree, but I will never believe anything outside of that. Why is it that weights like 133, 141, 149, 157, and 165 seem to be the toughest weight classes year over year? Its quite simple to me, its because they have the best athletes in those weight classes.
If you are a great athlete and are great at both football and wrestling, and have scholarship offers in both sports, the choice is pretty easy which route you go. Weights like 184, 197, and HWT may or may not ever hold the best athletes available year over year. BTW.......this is in no way a jab at the Penn State Head Coach. It is just my opinion on why I think that Dakes accomplishment is so incredible! Im also not saying Dake is better than he is either, but it is comparable in my mind.
