RE: Jack's Transfer Destination
I guess my last thought on Whitman is that time is running short. School starts in less than a month. That isn't much time to find and get into many a graduate program. I know basketball pulls some strings but the window is tiny. Provided he left in good academic standing, W&M might be his most direct road to joining a D1 team this year.

Although I would not mind him coming back, I think the ship has sailed.

Certainly don't know what's in a young fella's thinking without him sharing, but I would imagine the reality of the loss of the three players/buddies you came in with, Omar/Daniel/Mike moving on, could have hit pretty hard at the end of the season.

Jack obviously didn't find what he was looking for in Kansas, either.

RE: Jack's Transfer Destination
22 year old adults make a lot of crazy decisions. I know I did. My guess is that he was somewhat impulsive and now second guessing all of it. I just hope it ends up well for him. He gave us four years, got a degree, and like many athletes will go on to other things in life.

RE: Jack's Transfer Destination
I read an interesting article this morning in The Columbus Dispatch about Thad Matta.

In that article, it talks about recruiting involving "a racket of nefarious street agents, AAU money launderers, and cutthroat recruiters.".

It seems to me that, if a player's "choice of school" decision rests on anything other than the school as a whole, the player can be sorely disappointed in how things eventually turn out ... high school recruits ... college playing time ... graduate transfers.

Conversely, what Tony and the staff have to put up with ... Not enough money in the world would tempt me to be the head coach of men's hoops at W&M.

God bless Tony and the staff!

At first sight, I figured the same. Reading a bit, it sounds like he walked away from KU.

I think he's done with basketball and will start his professional life.

Jack's Transfer Destination
Bill Self stated Jack was already back home in Lexington when he called him, and didn't think Kansas would find a replacement this late in the game. He stated he did not know Jack's plans. With the elbow he took to the head during Self's basketball camp, never know concussion status.

If planning to play, come back home, Jack, and finish with a big year.

Not happening. It'd be good for us in the short term, but the long term effects would kill mid majors. If Jack were allowed to come back, mid major players would basically 'try out' for a high major program for a summer, stick around if given a scholarship, and if not, just return to their mid major with no consequence

I agree that the odds of Jack coming back are something akin to winning at powerball.

What I don't understand is how not taking Jack back would keep your scenario above from happening?
