    Post MIT Preview D3 Wrestling

    Head Coach Tom Layte returns for his 8th season on the bench at MIT, and looks to again have a full lineup with six starters back from last year’s team. Conference place winners Joe Silverman at 197 and Sean Jameson at 285 will be dropping to 184 and 197, respectively, in their bid to improve on last year’s finishes at the NEWA tournament. After a runner-up finish a year ago that left him just shy of the NCAA tournament, Silverman hopes the lower weight will have him wrestling in Iowa in March, seeking MIT’s fifth All-American award. Coach Layte has set goals of a winning record and top half finish in the 2008 NEWA tournament.

    I didn't know MIT even had a team. That's crazy. When do those kids even have time to practice?

    Lots of serious students play NCAA sports. Most have to sacrifice something and learn to set priorities during the season.

    I wrestled at MIT all four years and usually did better academically during the season because I was forced to be disciplined.

    I just find it crazy that you'd have time to even practice at that school. I remember reading an article about how strenuous it can be there academically. My hats off to you for making it through it.

    Don't believe the hype.
    School was alot of work and some people went crazy pushing themselves to perfection.
    But I don't think I put in any more effort academically than most Engineering majors at any reputable school.
