This is always one of those meatgrinders you use as an early gauge.

Glad to see Michigan back! And I wonder why Penn State doesn't go to the Scuffle like they usually do?

If my memory is correct, I think Penn State sent a few redshirt guys to the Midlands last year, but the main body of starters go to the Southern Scuffle.

Didn’t Illinois always send the “B” team also?

No matter how nice this alternative location might be, taking it off NW's campus is just sad. Tradition seems to mean nothing these days. But too, the tournament has changed so much from 30 years ago when aspiring Olympians, legends past their prime, recent graduates who still had something in the tank, and even some high schoolers on occasion, would show up to test their mettle. I remember seeing Kolat wrestle in the tournament as a high school sophomore (he took third his first year there). So many cool story lines to follow - just an unbelievable jamboree of names would come together in a free-for-all. But now... : (

Midlands and Shuffle are offset this year. The Shuffle is the 1st and 2nd. Could Penn State be going to both?

I think this is only because they are remodeling the gym on campus.

It was great when it had the true "OPEN" feeling. Just a nice test for all involved. One year I'd like to go just to see all the pain before the semis and all.

The Midlands and the Scuffle are always offset. And yes they are renovating Welsh Ryan Arena this year and that is why they are doing it at the Sears Centre. Mark Hall tried to wrestle at the Midlands last year before his red shirt was pulled, but for whatever reason the people in charge wouldn't let him in!

Man. Looking at the entry list compiled by Flo (https://www.flowrestling.org/articles/6057229-preliminary-midlands-2017-entry-list) Eli could win this and I would be disappointed if Ricky didn't win it.

It would be huge for both guys if they did.
