In a way, the Iowa Hawkeyes owed us a defensive end.

Clearly, they had too many when they stopped up 47 consecutive times at the goal line in 2007 to win the game.

They finally decided to pay up today as former Iowa DE John Raymon has decided to transfer to play for the Syracuse Orange, per John Garcia, Jr.

According to Garcia, Raymon has chosen Syracuse over schools such as Temple and Maryland due to the location and education. Raymon will enroll at SU on July 1st. Garcia also mentions there are some eligibility issues that Raymon has, which remain slightly unclear.

Raymon left Iowa in the middle of his freshman season. I'm wondering what he was doing academically between now and then, which could affect his eligibility and/or ability to play right away.

Here's what the sophomore said when he left Iowa back in October.

"Things just didn't work out at Iowa," the 6-foot-5, 240-pounder said. "They wanted me to stay and play at Iowa, but things just didn't work out. They told me that they hoped things would work out at another school.

"Mainly, I need to be closer to home," said Raymon, who is back in Pennsylvania.

This post then noted that Raymon may or may not have spent time at Iowa Western Community College, which might explain what he's been up to since then.

Much more to come I'm sure...
