Another 2013 scholarship available now?
Does making this decision right now - before spring semester starts - help with his ability to join and play for a new team in the fall?
Every other time I've posted shit that I've been told in advance I get filleted for it.
True, but that was due a bit to the time cut off on both Harris and Trice, who are back in the fold strong now. Having said that, the depth loss will not be good. I never felt like Kearney was a plus player when out there. More of a "stopgap" guy..
We will have to endure some trying times out of Byrd and he'll HAVE to get his shot going, period.
This sort of pulls Dawson away from the 4 area back toward the 3 to be sure. I have mixed feelings about that.
There is romance in all of us
Agreed. It never surprises me when a guy in his position transfers. It's the guys who are content with riding pine that I can't figure out.
I am gravely disappointed. Again you have made me unleash my dogs of war.
Pretty sure he will be able to play for his new team starting January 2014 so it makes sense if he really wants to leave.
I wonder if he's headed to Iowa State
so is he done NOW?????
Agree. I was one of the people who had questions about his scholarship offer, but he was developing into a good player. He should be a good addition to another team. The transfer makes sense, given that Harris and Valentine have passed him in the rotation, but who knows what happens next year. The timing is very strange.
If we can trick Coach Krzyzewski into saying his own name backwards, perhaps he will be pushed back to the fifth dimension
I basically agree. If a kid has aspirations for the NBA - despite what many outsiders think of their game - their only chance is to show off their talents at a lower level school where they can play however much they want compared to being a eighth or ninth guy off the bench at a bigger school.
I think LLP had something similar when he transferred from Zona to um. Maybe if he enrolls somewhere else in the next week, he could start playing again as soon as next January???
hoke- to alter or manipulate so as to give a deceptively or superficially improved quality or value.
You seem to be saying two different things here. Yeah, I would love to have the depth, but we are stacked in the backcourt still. I can totally see his outlook..it isn't good on this team, frankly.
Valentine is the biggest beneficiary of this move.. I had completely forgotten about him.
I hope he picks U of D
I said at the beginning of the year someone would transfer, but I guessed Byrd. This makes it even more imperative that A. We get someone in 2013, and B. Gary stays another year. Byrd's playing time is going to increase, as is Costello's as we got a bit smaller (Skynet to the 3, more time out of DV)
Still at Breslin waiting to hear from Appling right now. I'll have a story posted with all of Izzo's thoughts on this coming shortly.

Sounds like he wanted more of a featured role than his defensive specialist/utility role. Good luck to him. Hit to the team's depth. Five man units get changed up.
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
Always liked him
Not surprised at this but the timing? Does he lose this years eligibility?
If so seems pretty stupid.
There are not enough minutes to go around wih this group. You have valentine and Harris both getting minutes before him as true freshman.
Probably saw the writing in the wall.
This is what happens in talent laden programs.
Darn this really sucks for our depth in the future. I saw him having a Walton type role at the very least. Wish him the best at any place that doesn't play us.
Best of luck to him.
Now knowing what 1995 is like all over again! Thank you 247 technology!!
P.S. I will be shocked if one or two WRs don't tranfer out after spring camp.
They have too much talent. People who have that much talent want to play.
Seriously. He wants you to post a rumor so you can get down-voted into hell?
Glad you didn't post without a link
Extremely young. I expect we'll feel a lot differently about them this time next year
Best of luck to the kid. I hope it pans out for him. (Im guessing Oakland)
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
