    Default Varner to follow Sanderson to Penn State, Zabriskie to Stay

    Sounds like Varner is headed to PSU with Sanderson and Zabriskie will stay.

    Ms.Dusty is correct, he has 4 years under his belt. However, if Varner has completed his degree, he can leave and enroll at PSU, without a waiver the same way Scott Moore walked from PSU and enrolled at Virginia.

    Most unfortuate if he does leave. No question it kills ISU's chance the team title next year and would open the door for many others to ask for a release.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    I remember hearing that Moore got a release from Penn State and they let him go anywhere but a Big Ten school. Sounds like I was misinformed.

    How often do redshirt athletes complete their studies in four years?
    If they graduate, don't they have to get accepted into the Grad school to continue wrestling? Do athletic departments have enough pull to get their athletes into a grad program? Seems like a dicey proposition, I don't know about ISU, but most Big Ten grad schools are world class.

    Depends on the STUDENT-athlete. Josh Haines finished his undergrad degree in 3 1/2 years so was taking graduate courses in 07-08. He had a career ending injury so the athletic department picked up his scholarship and he finished his Masters degree this year.

    You would think so, but I don't know for sure.

    Yes, Iowa State has a world class grad school--but mostly in the sciences. Key developments in both the atom bomb (Spedding's eggs) and the computer (Atanasoff-Berry) were made there.

    Varner is a criminal justice major.
