    EVANSTON, Ill. -- The voting is closed for the semifinals of the All-Time Greatest Midlands Wrestler competition and the field of 32 is now down to our final two. Before we start with the next round, let’s take a look and see how round three played out. 

    Semifinal #1
    Dan Gable over Tom Brands 79-21

    The teacher defeats the student in this match-up of Iowa coaches. Brands had a good run to the semifinals but it's no surprise Gable defeated Brands easily in this match.  

    Semifinal #2
    Cael Sanderson over Bruce Baumgartner 57-43 

    Baumgartner's run of blowout victories comes to a screeching halt against four-time Midlands champion and four-time national champion Cael Sanderson.
