As if the weather in Iowa in the Winter is any better! And it is no easier to get to Ames than it is to Edinboro! Try again with another explanation. Something amiss
or at least something being left unsaid or unexplained. In any case, am sorry to see Edinboro lose Lugo to a Big Ten team.

Agree, this stinks for Edinboro.

IMO, this is happening far too often recently and is hurting the smaller (non Big 10) programs.

It has been happening alot more recently. Steve Bleise would have had the chance to be the first AA in a while for Northern Illinois and he went to Minn. Austin Eicher won the MAC at 133 if i rememeber correct and left the following year to wrestle at MSU. Michael Longo was a 2x qualifier at App State and went to Oklahoma when Roselli took over. I could keep going. Even though there is more parity than ever the rich still stay rich.

Just since 2017 NCAA's :

Keener - CMU to Penn St.
McKenna - Stanford to Ohio St.
Lugo - Edinboro to Iowa
Bleise - N. Illinois to Minnesota
Campbell - Pittsburgh to Ohio St.
Beazley - ODU to Michigan

Common theme ? All moves from "smaller programs" to Big 10 schools,

How anyone can consider this trend to be "positive" for the long-term health of D1 Wrestling ?

I think people are just feeling the sting of Lugo transferring out of Edinboro which, admittedly, was detrimental to the team's competitiveness. I think it's good that individual wrestlers have a framework to transfer into a different school/program as long as they do it within the established framework/rules.

Without doing any research and just off the top of my head I would think there are many more wrestlers who transfer from the "bigger" programs to the "smaller" programs. For example, LHU currently has Marstellar and Haines who transferred from major programs. You could consider Boro's Austin Matthews as a transfer from a smaller (Clarion) program to a bigger (Edinboro) program. Did the Boro people complain about the inequity in that?

If a better opportunity exists in a major program and the timing is right and the individual is good enough to fill that opportunity (or vie for it) he should be able to do it with certain restrictions. What I do find troubling is the Suriano transfer from PSU to Rutgers. As I understand that situation, PSU could have withheld Suriano's eligibility for 2017-2018 but they instead permitted it. Maybe PSU felt they had nothing to gain from sticking to the NCAA rules but the problem is that it sets a precedent for others to do the same and expect to be able to be eligible immediately and that could affect less-rich programs than Penn State in the future.

Also note that Suriano could be viewed as a transfer from a bigger to a smaller program.
