Scuffle Results

The Southern Scuffle kicked off Wrestling in the states in 2017 with their annual tournament. What it may have lacked in firepower (as far as teams), the event provided some fireworks. 

The Wrestling Twitter universe exploded during the semi-finals when Dean Heil (Oklahoma State) seemed to get a multitude of favorable calls to beat George DiCamillo (Virginia) 3-1.  The discussion opened up a dialogue on calling takedowns with leg passes and possibly rule changes to help officials. While I'm critical of officials often, it is difficult to be the guy who calls a takedown right when a guy rolls through. 

Mark Hall (Penn State) captured some imagination when he ran a tough gauntlet to finish off the tournament on top of the podium. His semi-final bucket roll for a pin when trailing was absolutely incredible. We saw him hit it this summer on Logan Massa in freestyle when trailing as well. His ability to hit it on high-level opponents is jarring.

J'Den Cox's (Missouri) likely toughest challenge this season is who he met in the finals, Brett Pfarr (Minnesota). The #1 vs #2 matchup did see Pfarr challenge in Cox in many ways having the score tied leading to the closing moments of regulation. However, the Olympic medalist created a flurry to then hit a perfectly times double-leg to put the match away. 

Oklahoma State flexed their muscle in this tournament which should make people feel very comfortable about their number one ranking. They placed nine guys in the top four, and then Piccininni took 6th at 125. That's top to bottom strength that will likely equal a lot of points in St Louis.
