Garbage Decision: EMU Dropping Wrestling


Eastern Michigan University press release

YPSILANTI, MI — Eastern Michigan University announced today that it will reduce its intercollegiate athletic program by four sports, effective at the end of the 2018 spring season. The action is being taken as part of the university's overall budget restructuring efforts. Affected by the decision are the sports of softball, men's swimming and diving, women's tennis, and wrestling. With the change, EMU, which previously led the MAC with 21 sports, will now have 17 sports (seven men's sports and 10 women's sports). This action in no way impacts Eastern's affiliation with the Mid-American Conference (MAC).

Bloodround Heartache

Tony Rotundo Gabe Dean Jack Dechow

Losses are always tough to take. The most gut-wrenching losses come Friday night at the NCAA tournament. Years of hard work have allowed wrestlers to make the final twelve at the NCAA tournament. In each weight class four guys have to swallow the pill of being one match away from earning All American honors. It's a loss that sticks with guys, and a lot of them use the loss to fuel future success.
