    Wow you think Gable vs Sanderson was hard question to anwser. I can name 6 guys easy that many could argue as the next best.

    Larry Hayes
    Nate Carr
    both 3x Champs
    Tim Krieger
    2x Champs, 3x finalist, 4x AA (5th)
    Joe Heskett
    1x Champ, 3x finalist, 4x AA (3rd)
    Frank Santana
    Kelly Ward
    both 1x Champ, 3x finalist
    just to name a few candidates and there are several that were before my time that others can add to list.

    Carr would get my vote.

    Re: Who was the third best wrestler in ISU history?

    Harry is correct; Ben Petersen has to be listed. What a thrill it was to see him wrestle. He didnít just win, he made opponents look stupid. Many a night he looked better than Gable.

    By the way I was on a first name basis with Chris Taylor and Chris was quite aware of his deficiencies. He would say ďI canít allow an opponent to get me on my back because I canít recover from that position.Ē

    I walked into the first day of drafting class and Chris was already seated in the room. He was unsuccessfully attempting to use 2 stools in order to sit more comfortably. I recognized him immediately for I had seen him on ABC just weeks before. Eventually the instructor figured out who he was. Taylor had traveled the world due to wrestling and the teacher was obviously jealous of that.

    One day Chris was hungry and asked if he could eat my drafting eraser. I thought he was joking, he wasnít.
