Thanks for the information here. 
But what a-watered down event? From the past.  Much like Midlands. It’s only all about seeding for March.

A lot of this happened for two reasons...
1. When Penn St. accepted the invite to the Collegiate Duals, the Southern Scuffle was out, as a team event.  Their starters were never on the schedule for the Scuffle this year.  It was known well in advance they would send backups.
2.  Roughly a week before the event, OK State chose not to send their starters due to Covid.  I'm not sure I understand the logic because they sent backups who would then come back and train with the starters.  But that decision was made by Coach Smith.  

Those 2 situations very much weakened this year's event.
