    Default Comparing Midlands & Scuffle Finals Match Ups

    Arguments about which tournament is truly tougher would probably necessitate a deeper examination of the brackets, but this is interesting to look at just to see the cream of the crop at each tournament.

    Great finals match ups for us tonight, at both tournaments.

    Midlands: Matt McDonough (Iowa) v. Brandon Precin (Northwestern)
    Scuffle: James Nicholson (Old Dominion) v. Zach Sanders (Minnesota)

    133
    Midlands: Tyler Graff (Wisconsin) v. BJ Futrell (Illinois)
    Scuffle: Lou Ruggirello (Hofstra) v. Rollie Peterkin (Penn)

    141
    Midlands: Jimmy Kennedy (Illinois) v. Boris Novachkov (Cal Poly)
    Scuffle: Kellen Russel (Michigan) v. Mike Thorn (Minnesota)

    Scuffle: David Taylor (Penn State) v. Paul Young (Indiana)

    165

    As far as which tournament has tougher finals I've got it 5-4 Scuffle with 174 being too close to call.

    I'd give the edge to the Scuffle at 74 just because Ruth beat Lewness to get there.

    I have it 6-3 Scuffle with 74 up in the air-I chose 33 because Rug nearly hung a major on Futrell at CK.

    Scuffle was tougher this year, I think. 174 was brutal. You just have to hope that teams will keep coming back to the Scuffle next year. It was a horrible idea on their part putting the finals up on such a small stage; sure, makes it interesting for the crowd, but it's plain unnecessary for the wrestlers. When you have an injured wrestler fall off it twice and hurt himself, there's a problem.

    Maybe @ the end of the year we can look back & see what tournament had more AAs or NCAA champs. That should help figure that Q out decisively.
