Wrestling msuspartans.com —  The Michigan State wrestling team fell in its home opener to Eastern Michigan, 34-0, Wednesday night at Jenison Field House. “We weren’t aggressive enough tonight,” said MSU head coach Tom Minkel. “We kind of hung back and tried to win it technically rather than go out and make it a fight. We also gave the guys some time off for Thanksgiving, and weight control this week was an issue for us. I told the guys they can come out of this dual feeling sorry for themselves, or you can say look, I don’t want to go through that again, and what am I going to do to rectify that. We have to mature here, and we’re a young team, but we have to grow up in a hurry.”
