Competing with the Big Ten


The wrestling team’s dominance against Mid-American Conference opponents is well documented.

Central has won the regular season conference title nine consecutive times, and the MAC Tournament six straight times.

But could CMU win the Big Ten?

The Chippewas aren’t switching conferences by any means, but just for the sake of debating, it’s an interesting question. The topic was posted at thematforums.

The Chippewas have wins against Michigan State, Ohio State, Michigan and a loss against Minnesota. Iowa and Penn State also would be top competitors for CMU.

The Golden Gophers have had CMU’s number the last few years and are 8-0 all-time against CMU. This season at least, the Chippewas would have a realistic shot at winning the Big Ten regular season or the tournament. At 165, 174, 184, 197 and heavyweight they match up as well as any team.

We’ll probably never know, but coach Tom Borrelli and his team are probably content with owning the MAC. We will know in March, however, how Central stacks up with the Big Ten’s best, and other conferences. An article from the Saginaw News looks at the wrestling team in the national spotlight.

Elsewhere, the basketball team lost Wednesday at Bowling Green. Here are the highlights in case you missed it.

The MAC report also looks ahead to the postseason for men’s basketball. Also, Central is ranked eighth in the site’s weekly rankings.

Also, it’s never to early to talk football. Jahleel Addae, the recently signed running back, seems excited to be coming to CMU.
