Downey Update

Recommended Posts

Somewhat odd, somewhat understandable to see the incredible 15-p thread on Patrick Downey, especially with the dad weighing in to attempt to set the record straight (as if smurfs care about that). What never appeared was online reporting the past 4 days which indicated that the only D-1 school where he could compete both semesters would have been ISU. But they've recently indicated 'no, thanks' with a full release given. Any other Div.1 signing him would be 2nd semester only, if he graduates with ugrad degree this Fall studying online.

Dude, get your **** out of your ***.  Go back to your cave, moron.  You are an idiot. Go to bed.  Downey will be D1 Natty  Champ next year....Nickal will be get broken in half...easy at 84; Moore...not so easy...he is a bulldog. Either way, he still wins.

In all fairness, it actually WAS addressed several times - look at page 4 and page 8 - Here is the quote from his dad "So, he WILL earn the degree and be eligible for the spring semester, unless, of course, he decides to wrestle for ISU, in which case he'll be immediately eligible to wrestle and get in his first-ever full D1 season.  Big 10 conference."  He actually says EXACTLY what you say never appeared.

 

A little advice - when you call someone out by starting a thread, especially called "update" make sure you read the thread and know what you are talking about.

I can't find one iota of these two statements that are mutually exclusive. It's totally possible for somebody to wrestle only in the spring semester, and to win a national championship.

 

PD2, I wish nothing but the best of luck for your son, but please, you don't need to insult people to get your point across.

Once again a quote from Major League Baseball is appropriate.

 

"Million Dollar Arm, 10 cent brain."

 

We have a kid who is a Cancer in the room and a father who is an example of "Little League parent syndrome".

 

Combined they assure no decent school will go after this wrestler.

 

For now he is the only wrestler in the world who can't beat Kyle Dake in a fantasy wrestling match.

Lonzo and Lavar Ball.

Except from my understanding Lonzo really hasn't been an issue or a major attention hog. Not the same can be said for the dad.

 

How about Cam Newton then ? His dad was trying to get $100K+ out of some SEC schools to get Cam to sign.  NCAA said there was no proof Cam knew about it and didn't declare him ineligible.

That's a legitimate point. The dad is in the mold of Lavar though, if that's actually him. I can't imagine any parent thinking they are doing their kid any favors by "defending" them and getting into internet fights like that. At least Lavar's intentions are clear with the brand building, merchandising, etc. - he wants to make a buck and pave a way for his other two kids to one day get into the league. This guy is just obnoxious. He's a mini-Ball without a purpose.
