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
To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
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.

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.
