Projected Southern Scuffle Team Scores

It's just about time to Scuffle! But before we do, let's take the preseeds that just came out and use them to project the team scores for this week's tournament.

Our methodology is the same for this exercise as it is for the top 20 team rankings. It's also the same method we used for the CKLV and the Midlands team score projects. All the usual caveats apply.

So how might things shake out in Chattanooga, TN, on Monday and Tuesday if we DIDN'T wrestle the matches and ONLY decided who wins based on preseeds? We will tell you!

No surprise that Penn State is the favorite. The Nittany Lions did have seven No. 1 preseeds after all. Lehigh has a big lead on everyone else for second, then things get more interesting. 

Of course, we DON'T settle things on a computer screen two days before the tournament officially ends. So make sure you tune in, LIVE ON FLO, to see what actually happens!

Which College "Won" Ironman?

132lbs Third place: Jordan Decatur, CVCA vs Dylan D'Emilio, Genoa

One of my favorite things to do after big tournaments like the Walsh Ironman is to look at results through the lens of college recruiting. While a number of Ironman placers have yet to make their college decision, many have committed already and a good deal have signed their National Letters of Intent.
