    Michael Jordan vs LeBron James. The argument of who is the greatest basketball player of all-time divides family, friends, and instantly provokes a response from everyone no matter what side you are on. While John Smith is widely considered the greatest American wrestler of all-time, we hear you Bruce Baumgartner fans, Jordan Burroughs is currently making a push at the crown. The debate between Smith and Burroughs may not be as heated as MJ-LeBron, but there are several similarities between the two debates.

    John Smith has been the head coach of Oklahoma State wrestling since 1992. At 54, he’s likely still got some gas in the tank and will continue to coach for the Cowboys for some time. But eventually he’ll hang up the sweater-vest, and I thought it’d be interesting to think about some possibilities that could end up being the replacement for coach Smith. This list is in no particular order.

If you have any insight into how you teach the difference between these two specific techniques, please get a hold of me. I'd love to hear it.
