    Looked like he was about to throw his breakfast in the trash can this morning.

    With the weight cutting problems and the bum knee, I can understand why he looked like he did. I wasn't trying to hate, I think it's just the 7th place in me talking.
    You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    Perry gutted out the last 90 seconds with a knee injury, but it is thoughtful of a Cyclone fan to be concerned about his conditioning.

    If there is a knock on Perry at this stage of the season, it is his aggressiveness. He has to use his tall lanky frame to his advantage and stop letting shorter bulldog type wrestlers get low on him.

    Who else does he need to beat? Diefenbach? I'm fairly certain that happens when it counts.

    The Perry I saw wrestling yesterday against Marable was not the same Perry I saw wrestle at Midlands a few weeks ago. Midlands Perry was the aggressive wrestler that Hawkmatfan alluded to. The Perry I watched yesterday was nowhere near aggressive. He stood out from the rest of the team, and not in a good way. Compared to what I saw from Metcalf, Perry was downright lazy. Will he win NCAAs? I don't know. I do wonder what happened to the guy I saw a few weeks ago, though!

    And the Jeff McGinniss that won an NCAA title at 142 looked nothing like the same wrestler that won at 125 - but he won. The contention of the thread is that Perry will not win this year's title. I respectfully submit that he would still have to be the favorite.

    thats a ridiculous statement as again, he is facing the #1, #3 and #4 wrestlers all in the same weekend...you can't compare the weekend he had to Metcalfs. Was the Metcalf you saw against Churella the same one you saw at Midlands?

    With comparing him to Metcalf, more what I'm saying is that Perry is not wrestling the Iowa-style, smothering, break you down style that his teammates were. Yes, it is the best of competition, but if Perry is the top wrestler we expect him to be, he should be able to wrestle his game plan against anyone.

    If what we are discussing is Perry's likelihood to win NCAAs, he will need to face all of the top wrestlers to win it, won't he? And wrestle them at the top of his game? The excuse that he was facing some of the top guys shouldn't matter because that is exactly what he will have to do come March.
