    So does Carwin have the wrestling chops to stuff Lesnar's takedown and keep the fight standing? I ask because I haven't seen any of his fights.
    He was a div II champion, and he was able to get back to his feet with a Mundials winner on top of him after knocking him silly. I was under the impression Gonzaga is known for his top game.

    EDIT: Good English once again.. Oh well. I'm just interested in probability of finding excellent, top of the line (even potential Olympians) from div 2.
    I don't know about wrestling but I've seen some monster Rugby players come out of Div II and Div III schools.

    Div I school will grab the "best" but "best" is often subjective and the college scene is a far cry from High School.
    I do not aspire to be great, or even good, I hope to suck a little less then last class.
