    This. Agree 100%, I'm changing my prediction to Taylor over Dake, I think the revenge factor is big + how well Taylor is flowing right now.

    The bout was 0-0 mid-way through 2nd period with Brown accumulating about 1 min RT when Storley hipped over Brown for reversal, caught him chest-to-chest on mat and pinned him.

    I have been preaching Tyler Caldwell as overrated since he was at OU, I am not going to change it just because he is at Ok State now. There wasn't a moment leading up to that match that I personally thought that he was going to beat David Taylor. I still say Dake wins because of how well in the past he has defended David Taylor's nearly unstoppable offense. I am saying this despite the fact David Taylor is one of my top 5 favorite wrestlers all time, my gut says it isn't happening.

    I still take Dake in this match and every match against Taylor. Dake has a switch that flips when the bright lights turn on. Dake will beat Taylor tonight for the 2nd time this year.

    Technically the first time this year.

    I will repeat my previous prediction from weeks ago--that Taylor wins tonight. This is conditioned on my belief that he will change his tactics from the All-star match. Taylor played it very cautious, which is not his normal style and played in Dake's hands. Dake is one super wrestler and certainly he could very well win this match. But I think Taylor opens it up more in this match and will win it. I suspect Dake's defense might capitalize on some of Taylor's attack, but not enough to win. I look for it to be close heading into the 3rd period, but Taylor's offense being too much in the 3rd. We'll see!

    Also, I've changed my opinion on Taylor taking down. Even though Taylor handled Caldwell today, Caldwell did ride him for over a minute and Dake is a better rider than Caldwell. After watching the DT-Caldwell bout, I think Taylor will take neutral.

    First time this YEAR, second time in the last 3 months and 3rd time in 6 months.

Whenever Oliver or Taylor is in deep you know it's pretty much over, and it usually looks pretty easy because they are perfectly positioned. They aren't supporting the other wrestler's weight, they have the proper angle, etc. From the bottom, they get hand control and just walk away from the top wrestler. All in all, they make things look easy.

    It's hard to argue against Dake because of the fact that he's won three titles and may be on his way to a fourth. I think Dake is superior to Oliver and Taylor from a defensive perspective but not from an offensive perspective.
    Okay, you said technically sound wrestler, I figured that meant all three positions. Offensively I think Taylor and Oliver are 1-2 and you can certainly refer to them as 2-1. 1 and 1a.

    I don't think there is such a thing as an overrated finalist...
