Is UW coaching staff trying to get Pat to become a Badger?! That would be a huge pick-up for UW and maybe even the BRTC.

As much as the talent is there, I think they would be best to pass on this guy.  Between him and his Dad you can count on a lot of unwanted "noise" to deal with.

Stud wrestler, but a gamble.

Downey was arrested on multiple occasions as a prep, but has seen a handful of high-level wrestling opportunities since. After two years at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., he had a short stint at Nebraska, followed by a national championship run at Iowa Central Community College.

Then in Feb of this year
“Patrick Downey is no longer a member of the Iowa State wrestling team because of repeated violations of team rules,” Jackson stated in an afternoon release. “He will no longer compete for the Cyclones, including this year’s Big 12 or NCAA Championships.”

Why ask the original question?  Have you heard something that indicates UW might be having conversations with Downney, or is this just a hypothetical scenario based question?

He was a 2016 All-American for Iowa State.  This last year at world team trials he beat like 5 AA's including Gabe Dean.  Very, very talented individual.  He is very unfiltered on social media and his Dad (PD2) even more so.

He's in the twilight of his career, maybe it's time to take a gamble on some talent.  End with a bang!

He would be the best wrestler on the roster, that's for sure.

He's also shown he doesn't have the discipline to keep his schnoz clean. He's just been like an Oakland Raider wherever he's gone. He's a brute. Beating Dean was no fluke Still the trade off would worry me.
