    Borrelli to revamp lineup

    Tom Borrelli didn't waste time in getting to the heart of the matter.

    "We have some big question marks," said Borrelli of the upcoming 2010-11 wrestling season. "We have to replace six seniors at six different weight classes."

    After finishing tied for 12th nationally in 2010 and winning a ninth straight Mid-American Conference Tournament title the Chippewas have holes to fill all over the place this season.

    The loss of national qualifiers at 125, 141, 149, 165 and 197 leaves obvious holes. Moreover the loss of All-American Steve Brown at 157 only further adds to the dilemma as the Chippewas lose 120 wins at the aforementioned weight classes.

    However there is a silver lining in that CMU returns four veteran starters, of which all have earned All-American honors before. Last spring Ben Bennett finished sixth nationally at 174 while heavyweight Jarod Trice landed eighth. In 2009 Mike Miller advanced to the national final at 174 and Scotti Sentes landed seventh at 125.

    In short CMU has the veteran leadership and grizzled talent to go places, but the breadth of the distance it will travel all hinges on how and who fills the holes.

    "All of the weight classes have competitive guys so I'm not sure who's going to start," said Borrelli, whose 2010 team also finished the season ranked sixth in the dual meet rankings. "The guys have had a good summer and good preseason so a big part of it is going to be gaining confidence as the season goes on, that's my job."

    In terms of who has the inside track at the starting jobs Borrelli wouldn't elaborate too much, opting to say it will sort itself out in the coming months.

    On paper Donnie Corby (149/157) brings the most collegiate experience to the table as he went 16-13 last season. Eric Cubberly also went 15-7 at 165 so this duo might have an inside line at starting spots.

    Unlike recent seasons past the Chippewas will be a better tournament team this season because of what Sentes, Bennett, Miller and Trice bring to the table. In recent years they had climbed all the way up to No. 2 in the dual meet standings but always fell down around 10 rungs when it came to the National tournament.

    "Right now we're a better tournament team because we have four guys who can score a lot of points," said Borrelli, whose team went 17-2 overall last season and was 6-2 against teams in the top 25.

    I noticed that Waldo is not listed on the roster yet. What's up there?

    I heard he's in the room working out hard and looks very tough. Probably will be on the updated line-up soon.

    Miller going 65 or 84? Or is that being kept under wraps for the time being?

    Where's Waldo?
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    He never has cut much weight and was too small for 184 last year. I think he may go 165 this year.

    Would be nice for them to get Cubberly in as well. Bennett was good but didn't match Millers success at 174. Maybe Cubberly 165, Miller 174, Bennett 184?
