It needs the gold border to pop. Black tiger hawk vs dark green field turf would be too blah, I think. 

I wouldn't have minded seeing what an all-gold tiger hawk would have looked like, but so it goes.

Yeah. Francis Duggan (brother of Pat Duggan, who just transferred to Iowa) also moved to Iowa and will be wrestling for Iowa City West this year. Which would lead me to believe that Iowa has a pretty good shot at landing him...

I will say I'm not sure I see Cassioppi, Costello, and Duggan (if he comes here) staying all four years, given that there's only one starting job available and most heavyweights can't easily move to a different weight. So it wouldn't surprise me if someone headed elsewhere in search of a better chance to start if they don't win the main spot at Iowa. But that's not a terrible problem to have (If it happens) and only something to worry about in a few years. For now, it's good to see Iowa attracting quality talent at the upper weights and having some options. Would that we had more options at heavyweight last year, when poor Steven Holloway was getting thrown to the wolves week after week...
