Mergers and Acquisitions

Recommended Posts

With NLWC having such deep pockets, they will continue to distance themselves from less-funded programs.  Maybe it's time for smaller programs to get into meger discussions to better compete?  Let's say an east coast program merging with a west coast program.

One other that would make sense geographically (and where there are already 2 separate clubs) would be NC State/Wolfpack and UNC/Tar Heel.

There is a tad bit of hatred between them. That would be like Ohio State and Michigan merging.

In other sports sure, I’m not sure if it’s really the case in wrestling.  I don’t think Penn/Drexel and Rutgers/Princeton are best friends in general either...

All of those teams are in separate conferences and don't have to wrestle each other for qualification spots into the NCAA tournament. That's a big difference between all of them.

Penn and Drexel are both in the EIWA.

Well then nevermind, still not exactly the rivals that UNC and NC State are.

I'm not so sure.   It's just that UNC and NC State are higher profile.

Also, I bet both UNC and NC State hate Duke more than they hate each other.

Everyone hates Duke and Christian Laettner.
