Danny, as a competitor in this sport, you were taught that the highest priority is beating the guy standing across from you...one-on-one. I definitely respect that and believe that is why this is...

I don't see anything that says the greater Greensboro area is trying or wants to keep the Scuffle going. There is the following posted on a FAQ by the University:
