Thread: Top 3 seeds at 174?

    Default Top 3 seeds at 174?

    Obviously it will be between Ruth, Amuch, and Perry. Ruth is the only one who has wrestled a full season, does that put him in the #1 spot? Or does Amuch's victory over Ruth last year put him at #1. I'd be surprised if Perry passed either one of them since he spent so much of the year at 184.

    No, Amuchastegui's victory over Ruth last year doesn't give him the one seed. The fact that he is the highest returning placer and undefeated this season gives him the one seed. Ruth is second as the next highest returning placer, Perry is third for being undefeated with wins over (last Intermat rankings) 5, 6 and 10.

    It's pretty much like NCAA football. Once you've got a #1 ranking you keep it until you lose. There are some exceptions such as PSU's 1995 year when they were #1 and after a win over Indiana late in the season dropped to #2 behind Nebraska which cost them the national championship. But those cases are pretty rare. I agree with Amu being #1. It means that Ruth has to go through Perry in the semis, but I'm confident he'll meet up with Amu in the finals again. I suspect Art may have a different view of that!

    Amu, Ruth, Perry...does that mean that Storley gets #4?

    I believe after Sunday Storley wants on the other side of the brackett from Ruth .
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    Lets pray for a 5 seed for Lofthouse. I don't think it's likely, though. Most likely he's a 6 or a 7, and thus on the buzzsaw half.

    I think it will probably be Amuchastegui vs Ruth but I'm not confident about it.

    OSU has two undefeated guys and both get totally written off in the title talk. It is interesting.

    Art--Perry is a very good wrestler so I take nothing at all away from him. But Ruth is just looking incredible right now. But Oliver--I don't write him off at all. I'll be very surprised if he doesn't win it. One of the very best wrestlers pound-for-pound in the country.
