If You are comparing losses than its not fair to exclude Cael's. Two of Dake's losses came as a true freshman and Cael lost as a true freshman. Cael still has a huge edge in the losses category and I think he's clearly the best college wrestler ever, I just think its unfair to downgrade Dake for a true freshman year that included 2 losses and one national title.
