Put in peeps who are leaving early and declaring for NBA
@SportsCenter 5h : The exodus begins: Russ Smith's dad tells Sports Illustrated that Russ will forego his senior season at Louisville and enter the NBA Draft.
@GoodmanCBS 25m: Indiana's Victor Oladipo will announce he is leaving for the NBA at 4 pm today, sources told CBSSports. Will graduate in 3 years in May.
Good. Oladipo and Burke are the only two guys I never want to see again in the Big Ten. Don't care about anybody else.

For pure schadenfreude, I would love to see Mitch McGary, Glenn Robinson III, and Tim Hardaway Jr. leave too.
I really hate Aaron Craft
A man's gotta eat!
One of these days, Craft won't play like Chris Paul against us offensively. I'm confident in that.
Craft isn't a senior? What year is he? I swear he's already been around for 5 years.
Zeller rumored to announce tomorrow. IU fans seem hopeful, but money is on him leaving.
I assume Gary and Payne will be making a decision soon? God how glorious would it be if both returned.
"Stats are for Losers." - Pat "Nardawg" Narduzzi
I'm thinking Gary is 90/10 staying, and Payne is 60/40.
For scUM, I'm thinking Burke is 5/95, Hardaway 30/70, Robinson 50/50, and McGary 60/40.
For IU, I'm thinking Zeller is 20/80.
Saw a tweet that zeller has a press conference Wednesday.
Hope our guys stay and dominate.

Kind of like Battle from PSU a couple of years ago. Guy seemed to always give us trouble. Hated us playing against him.
Don't they have to declare by Wednesday to be eligible for the advisory committee? Or have they already taken that step?
5% is too high for Burke, and 30% is about 29% too high for Hardaway. Both are GONE.
He's predicted to go later in the draft than Robinson, McGary, or even Gary Harris... and his family has money. So while I agree he's most likely gone, I wouldn't be shocked if he stayed.
If Burke and Hardaway are gone, I don't know if Robinson can justify staying if he's projected as a first-rounder. His stock is not going to increase if Michigan is worse and one of the best players in Michigan's history isn't there to get you the ball.
I'll say the same thing to Branden Dawson next year if Harris leaves.
Deadline for the advisory board evaluation is the 15th
Deadline to declare is the 28th

This is what Rexrode wrote:
Underclassmen have until April 28 to declare for the June 28 draft, but if they enter by Wednesday, they will receive feedback from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory on April 15. Then they would have to withdraw from the draft by the next day to retain their college eligibility.
Freshman guard Gary Harris and junior guard Keith Appling also are seeking evaluations of their stock, though Payne is the most likely to make an early leap. ESPN's Chad Ford considers Payne a 'bubble' first-round pick and Harris a possible lottery pick, but Harris has a bum shoulder and has given no indication he is seriously thinking about leaving. Izzo said a decision has yet to be made on whether Harris will have surgery on his left shoulder.
Chad Ford on ESPNU said he thinks burke, hardaway, robinson, mcgary will all leave for the draft...although I'm not sure of how much of that is simply speculation

If four of their starters go pro in one class I wonder if scUM fans will still say they did "more with less."
