    Pretty sure Dake did a great job riding DSJ, and St John is probably taller than Dake is. For Dake I dont think it matters what the body style is, he can ride anybody. But, Molinaro will still to this day choose down.

    Does either wrestler choose down?

    Once again have to go with Dake. However, Dake did not do a very good job riding DSJ. I was surprised how quickly DSJ got away from Dake in the national finals. This first match is a match that could go either way, but as we've seen in the past, Dake gets stronger and unbeatable the longer the year goes on and if they meet in the national finals, its Dake, no question! I'm also interested to see if Dake has any size advantage at 65. I'm a true believer that being "hungry" on the mat makes you mentally tougher. Will Dake be hungry at 65, I don't know. I'm planning to be at the match with a bus full of youth wrestlers from Maryland. Can't wait to provide the first hand account! DC

    What are you talking about? DSJ DIDNT get away from Dake. At any point. Ever. Recall DSJ took neutral after being ridden out the 1st period.

    DT has a legitimate chance of reversing Dake. DT reverses almost everyone..
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    That's right--the one point Dake gave up was for stalling in the 3rd period. Otherwise it would have been 4-0.

    Dake wins, he's in Taylors head already since he pinned him at Olympic Trials.
    The better match would be Dake Vs. Jenkins for Taylor owner bragging rights.

    You bring up Jenkins like Dake has never lost to somebody he shouldn't have

    After watching the Dake-Taylor FS match it is hard not to pick Dake. I know it is a different style and all that, but Dake thoroughly schooled him.

    If Dake wins this mathup and then title number #4 at either weight, my book has him as second best NCAA wrestler ever behind Cael.
