Thread: Burroughs vs. Taylor/Dake hypothetical

  1. #1

    Default Burroughs vs. Taylor/Dake hypothetical

    If Jordan Burroughs was magically granted 1 more year of college eligibility, and entered the tournaments at 165, do you think David Taylor would be staring at another runner-up finish, or do you think the scholastic style favors Taylor?

    If Dake and Burroughs went head-to-head in a scholastic match, who would win?

    In folkstyle I'd take Dake over Burroughs (and Taylor).

    I'd also take Taylor over Burroughs.

    Burroughs over both of them in Free.

    I would take Dake over both of them in folk. His explosive athleticism gives Taylor trouble and I imagine he would put a good ride on Burroughs.

    Folk: Dake > Burroughs, Burroughs = Taylor.

    Freestyle: Obviously Burroughs over both. I think once Taylor graduates and can devote his full energy to free he will be Dake's equal.

    Burroughs over both Taylor and Dake in both styles wrestling both of them at the same time.

    You forgot to add the day after he re-tears the ACL and re-breaks the ankle.

    THIS...If youre talking about Burroughs as a collegian then probably Dake beats him and maybe Taylor too, but I think Jordan would beat both of these punks in both styles today.

    Burroughs beats both in folk.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Dake beats him in Folkstyle just by riding him out and wearing him down.
    I think he handles Taylor(by that I mean 6-2 type match where he's not in much danger).

    A better question would be would he beat Howe right now in Folkstyle. I think that Howe would have the edge at 74 at this moment.

    But as good as Taylor is, I think both are too physical.
