Watched the Midlands last night. I was disappointed they left out a few first periods, but other than that I thought it was good. Not going to argue about announcers. At least we had the thing on Prime time TV.
On to my point.
First I am not an Illinois fan, despite being from Chicago. I also have no opinnion about American U.
Good for John Dergo for turning it up this year. He's been on a tear and looks like he deserves to win matches. But of all the finals matches, you could also throw Reader's loss into this, that takedown in OT was waaaaay to quick.
It looked, at least from the angle I saw it, that Dergo had his arm draped around the far leg at best. In the age of scrambling, they let so much go, but for some reason they didn't let this one go.
I think if they wait one second, Cannon scrambles out of that particular sequence. It doesnt mean Dergo wouldn't have finished, he might have, we'll never know.
If I'm wrong, thats cool, but that did not look like a TD.
