    A win is a win BUT.... 3-2 is a disappointing win compared to 17-1

    17-1 is MUCH BETTER than 2-1

    Look at Cael Sanderson's wins....80% were by more than 13 points. He wasn't happy winning 2-1, thats why those type of guys go on to win Olympic medals.

    But, bottomline......W is W. No matter how you get it. 3-2 or 17-2.....both mean you are the winner of the wrestling match.

    Don't be surprised if Metcalf takes on a different strategy than normal against DS. Does everyone remember what happened in the finals at 165 last year? Perry was 0 and everything against Hendricks but Brands and Gable sat down with Perry and found Hendricks' weaknesses and how Perry could exploit them. Was it the prettiest match in the world? No. Did it have to frustrate the heck out of Hendricks? I am sure. Did Perry get his arm raised? Yes. Not that Jay Robinson is any slouch of a coach but Metcalf does have the advantage of having quite possibly the greatest wrestling coach ever in the room with him. Brands, Gable and Metcalf will analyze this match-up to no end and look to exploint DS' weaknesses as much as possible. It is quite possible that Metcalf comes out and wrestles a different style for that match to try and take advantage. Do I think Metcalf will win? I have no idea but I know I will sure as heck enjoy watching him trying. Win or lose it could be the match of the year and I can't wait.

    About time people talk about this match up. I'm surprised nobody has any interest in talking about it. I mean it is only two of the most talented wrestlers to come out of HS. I can't seem to find anybody that wants to discuss this clash of wrestling titans anywhere and this is the first I've seen, ever.

    Ok, I couldn't keep the sarcasm going any longer. Seriously though, has there EVER been a match-up that has been more anticipated, argued about, talked about, discussed about, posted about, argued about, anticipated, etc etc etc etc? Every forum that I visit always seems to have at least 1 thread about this match and when it finally comes to fruition.

    Hendricks-Askren last year, and they weren't even at the same weight.

    My memory of the Perry Hendricks match is that Hendricks blew that match by not chosing nuetral in the third. Perry wrestled the same match he always does, but he persistance paid off with hednrick's mistake/overconfidence in the third allowing Perry to use his funk. In my mind similar to the way Perry beat Letters his frsshman year.

    and then sometimes coaches just let their guys go out and do what they do...

    i think sometimes we overanalyze things...

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

    I thought Perry tried to stay away from Hendricks a little more than in previous matches but I could be wrong.
