Wrestlers unbeaten streaks
« on: June 01, 2020, 06:24:30 PM »
 Unbeaten, not win, streaks as some had ties.  If the History of Collegiate Wrestling had a different stat than the school's web site I went with the former as being more reliable.  Note that some historic figures don't make the list simply for lack of matches (Yojo Uetake, Dan Hodge, etc).  Additions/corrections are welcome

1) 159 Cael Sanderson (IA St)

2) 103 Lee Kemp (WI)

3) 98 Pat Smith (Okie St)

4) 96 Dan Gable (IA St)

5) 94 Zain Retherford (PSU)

6) 90 John Smith (Okie St)

7) 89 Jim Zalesky (IA)

8,9) 88 Kerry McCoy (PSU), Gwiz (NC St)

10, 11) 87 Chris Taylor (IA St), Ben Askren (MO)

12,13,14) 84 Ed Ruth (PSU), Gray Simons (LH), Mike Land (IA St)

15) 83 Stephen Neal (CSUB)

16) 82 Alex Dieringer (Okie St)

17) 77 Kyle Dake (Corn)

18) 76 Cole Konrad (MN)

19,20) 74 Troy Steiner (IA), Mike Sheets (Okie St)

21,22) 69 Brent Metcalf (IA), Tom Brands (IA)

23,24) 67 Mark Ironside (IA), TJ Williams (IA)

25,26) 65 Dustin Schlatter (MN), Alan Fried (Okie St)

I dont care how many matches they had or didnt have, Anyone who wrestled his entire career with no losses and 3 National Championships belongs on that list.

In a side note I was there the night Chris Taylor didnt win. He tied Bill Struve of OU.

Surprised McIlravy is not on the list.  I thought he lost at Nationals his sophomore year to Marianetti.  Maybe that was his junior year.

McIlravy had 56.  I cut the list off at top 25 as it was getting too unwieldy.  Dwayne Keller 64, Tim hartung 58, Yojo Uetake 57 (58 per school), J'den Cox 56, Joe Williams 53.

I lived in Apple Valley when Hartung was doing his thing.  I remember him exerting greatness.  I got to meet him and Eggum as I was preparing for Veterans.  Just seeing them it is amazing that anyone could possible challenge them.  They were huge with arms like steel bars.  Just goes to show how tough Cael really was with regard to Eggum.  I don't think Hartung lost his last two years.  But I'm sure there were some close matches.  They were very good clinicians really.  The workouts were for the High Schoolers going on in FS.  I just joined the fun.  The room was in the basement and was very hot.  Never sweated like that ever.

Hartung and Fullhart were tossups but Hartung won almost all of them.

Hartung was a beast for sure.
