Ronnie Perry's run

Recommended Posts

Interesting tidbit on Ronnie Perry's run...

 

He wrestled every single winner of every medal round match at 149.

 

Beat 7th place Tsirtis

Beat 5th place Sorenson

Beat 3rd place Klodzik

Lost 1st place Retherford

 

The guy he beat first round, Schuyler from Lehigh almost made it to the blood round losing 1 round before.

 

Impressive run.

Don’t most guys who make the finals tend to beat eventual medal round winners? It doesn’t seem like an unusual feat.

Let's take a look at all the finalists and who wrestled/beat amongst the medal round winners

 

125 Spencer Lee - beat Tomasello,

125 Nick Suriano - beat Cruz.

 

133 Seth Gross - beat Tariq Wilson

133 Stephen Miccic- beat ZERO medal round winners

 

141 Yanni Diakomihalis - beat ZERO medal round winners

141 Bryce Meredtih - beat Joey McKenna

 

149 Zain Retherford - beat ZERO medal round winners

 

157 Jason Nolf - beat ZERO medal round winners

157 Hayden Hidlay - beat Tyler Berger and Alec Panteleo

 

165 Vincenzo Joseph beat David McFadden

165 Imar beat ZERO medal round winners

 

174 Zahid - beat Myles Amine

174 Mark Hall - beat ZERO medal round winners

 

184 No Nickal - beat Domenic Abounader

184 Myles Martin - beat Chip Ness

 

197 Machiavello - beat Shakur Rasheed and Kyle Conel

197 Haught - beat ZERO medal round winners

 

285 Kyle Snyder beat ZERO medal round winners

285 Adam Coon beat Amar Dehsi

 

 

Ronnie Perry wrestled the winner of the 7th, 5th, and 3rd, place matches. Yes its common to wrestle other medal round winners when you make the finals. But its not common to wrestle every single one of them. No one else in the tournamnet came close to doing that.

 

This shows he had the toughest path to the title amongst all the finalists.

Like many others Ron Perry was not on my radar as a contender at 149.  After his run I looked at his record.  He entered the tournament at 32-3 which is a pretty good record for a #15 seed.  He didn't have any wins over other seeded wrestlers and his losses were against 2 OSU guys (Geo Martinez & Moran) and an Air Force guy.  His best wins were against Sprauge, Jefferies, & Garcia.  Anyway he had an amazing run for his last weekend of D1 competition.  If he hadn't had the misfortune of having an all time great in his weight he may have won the whole thing.

I was struggling whether to award the coveted USA Wrestling Forum Miracle of the Mats award to:

 

1. Yianni for winning without an Triceps or an ACL

 

2. Conel for whooping the number one guy

 

3. Perry for his amazing run.

 

4. Nolf for his one legged a$$-kicking contest

 

Past winners include English (PSU), Clark (Iowa), Robles (ASU) and the 1989 USA Olympic Hockey team. Right now Perry is leading because he beat so many who placed and because he scored a fantasy TD against the #1 cyborg wrestler. However, this could change pending a personal appeal from a mom or a record number of people voting (2 would break the previous total).

It's cute how tbar and his fanboy username think they are actually wrestling matches for PSU on this forum.

Is cute that you've been wrong on every post you've made in this thread.

 

1. Perry beating every medal round winner below him is not that usual

2. Zain was not takendown

3. Tbarr and I are not the same person

 

That makes you 0-3.

 

 

Are you the type of person when proven wrong simply replies by insulting the person that proved you wrong instead of backing up your pov with facts?

its not that unusual to be every medal round winner?

I would like to see some data to back up that statement.

I agree. He only wrestled 5 matches, and 4 were against all the other medal round winners. I’d bet it’s even rare that someone in the finals wrestled 4 AA’s let alone 4 that won their last match.

I just showed the data from this year's NCAA tournament. Thats not fact enough for scribe. I'll be back later to comb through my old brackets to find out common it is... just for him to make him feel special. Edited by BigTenFanboy
