headed to Iowa City to join the HWC and then IF (which I don't think will happen) he finishes his degree by Spring he'll join a lineup that could use him.

If the whole team doesn't end up getting suspended because of his disruptive influence.

it will be interesting...I mean who will be the vocal leader to shout him down if he starts acting up.  There really isn't another big guy in the room (college) I would say could do it.  It will almost certainly have to be someone from HWC.  Telford won't.  Burak won't.  Perry I would hope.  I could see Gilman chewing his ass, but he probably comes to Downey's navel so how much difference would that make.

What are the chances he screws up before even wrestling one match in an Iowa singlet?

really they don't have a lot invested.  he isn't on the team.  won't be getting a scholarship.  he is the responsibility of Perry and the HWC, and while any shenanigans will look crappy on the Hawks, they won't have anything to really lose.  and if he does finish his degree this fall they get a guy who plugs right into the lineup at 184 or 197 for the second half.  I may not be a fan of the move, but I'm having a hard time seeing a downside.

Desperation ? It would be the 3rd grad transfer Brands put on the roster since the NCAA's.  So much for the Iowa way.

He is the only one I can think of.  Who are the other 2?

Downey with all his baggage has to walk the walk and graduate first.  If he can do that, he deserves a chance.

Lugo isn't a grad transfer and neither is the lightweight transfer.  Maybe the Iowa way has become having a room people want to transfer into

I suppose you are correct.

"Downey is the third grad transfer Tom Brands is taking on this year, alongside Patricio Lugo from Edinboro and former Lock Haven lightweight Patrick Duggan. "


Lugo is a junior and Duggan a RS Soph.  Don't know where this guy got the idea they are grad transfers,

There is a melting pot of fans on there from other schools plus some Iowa fans, as with all team's fans, are simply idiots.

I follow those guys, their nice guys. Not exact experts, but good guys. Lugo is sitting this year and then will take Sorensens spot in a year. I almost think the last real transfer before these guys who made lineup was Burak. And he came from OTC
