Here are some reasons why you should be following Rutgers Wrestling:
- They're really good. Rutgers finished 11-5 (7-2 in the Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association), good for 34th in InterMat's rankings.
- They've already beaten a Big Ten foe, as the Scarlet Knights were victorious over Michigan State this past November at the Asics/Journeyman Northeast Duals.
- Redshirt sophomore Anthony Perrotti (Roseland, NJ) is the first All-American for the Scarlet Knights since 2002.
- The B1G and wrestling go together like lamb and tuna fish, so following wrestling would greatly appease our new conference overlords.
That's right, Rutgers will be hosting the #6, #4, #2, and #1 ranked teams in the nation next winter, including everyone's favorite team in Central PA (GASP!). Mark your calendars people:
