Thread: 2009 Southern Scuffle Wrestling Tournament: Predictions/Discussion

    ^^^I think the Southern Scuffle should be re-named the Southern Nationals. It has a strong regional flavor, plus some excellent teams from outside the area. IMO, it's a darn nice compliment to the powerful Midlands.

    It's also a good opportunity for local fans to see some of the native NC kids compete.
    Midlands is tougher. But there are exceptions, like 125. The Southern Scuffle will have 5 of the Top 10 -- Nickerson/Perrelli, Escobedo, Sanders, Nicholson and Morrill. That will be fun to watch. Midlands will have 1 Top 10 guy - McD from Iowa.

    Yeah I guess I'm just thinking back to the year or two when it was, seems like its dropped off a bit since then. Still a quality tournament for sure, and some really stacked weights

    It started dropping off when Shifflet left. He was the driving force behind starting it and drawing in tough teams.

    They are doing the live web cast both days and I'll be there covering the event and posting matches for Flowreslting as well. It should be a real tough event this year. I'm excited.

    I didn't realize Donohoe and Precin might be at Midlands. Obviously makes 125 more competitive.

    The Scuffle really peaked the year that it came down to Missouri and Minnesota (the year the Gophers won so it would have been 06/07).

    Ohio State, Edinboro, Cornell, Hofstra (their best year) and other teams were all there.

    Since then it hasn't quite been that good, but given that Minnesota is going back chances are I'll be buying the webcast (if there is one) and posting results here and leaving Midlands for someone else.
