#MACinsider Thoughts: I'm excited for this weekend of competition, as many of the MAC schools will be competing against other conferences in the Michigan State Open, Clarion Open, and Southeast Open. This will be a great opportunity to gauge which athletes have prepared physically and mentally during the "off-season" for the road to Detroit. Although an early testament, a few wrestlers from the MAC will be taking the mat for the first time in their college career to showcase their dominance.

Wrestlers to Watch:
Derek Spann (133) - University at Buffalo
Saul Ervin (141) - SIU Edwardsville
Ryan Burgos (149) - Edinboro
Matt Stencel (HWT) - Central Michigan
Luke Werner (125) - Lock Haven
