Lol doubt what? Nebraska and Iowa will be taking some guys

This tourney tends to feature back ups plus anyone who needs to get matches to qualify, or bump their win %, for seeding purposes.

The back ups are there to be fodder for the starters who need to up the match count or win %. In the past Dresser has arranged the brackets so that starters do not hit until late in the bracket, even though this is blatantly against the rules. And if by then they have enough matches or win %, they forfeit.

It is a very cynical "tournament".

Keep in mind there are six of them this year, under various names...(the Cowboy Shootout at Wyoming, the Last Chance Open at Iowa State, the F&M Scramble at Franklin & Marshall, the National Collegiate Open in Smyrna, Delaware, the Patriot Last Chance Open at George Mason, and the Wildcat Open at Davidson)

Davidson probably got the idea from ISU, Marcus Coleman and owner of 4 injury default wins at the 2020 Last Chance Open is one of their coaches

Two things to keep in mind: (1) bouts against teammates do not count on the ISRF; (2) the forfeits count as losses.

It started as a “cynical” tournament, but after the criticism Dresser did clean it up.  And the new MFF rules will further do so.  I went back and looked at last year’s brackets and there were some pretty good guys there including some in redshirt.  Looks like DeAugustino injury defaulted to Spratley in SV for example.
