Just because he's leaving doesn't mean he didnt want to be here. Sometimes people are faced with a choice of what they want vs what's in their best interest.

RE: Quincy Taylor leaving UAB
I don't understand how some of you can't be worried about that. All last season, we heard don't worry, once Hoopy is eligible, he'll take over for Q. Well, that never happened. Now, we have 2 freshmen who we've never seen that we are expecting to come in and run this offense? I'm worried. PG has been an issue for a few years now, and now we are starting over again.

We have not had a point guard and now we have one true and one that can play point. I actually feel better about our situation than the last two seasons. We are also not finished recruiting. Barring injury Watkins will be a four year starter at the point.

Then why wasn't it mentioned already? I doubt bad journalism was not the factor in why it wasn't mentioned.

Just like Hoopy was going to be the starter going forward this year?

RE: Quincy Taylor leaving UAB
I doubt it was his decision. We've been looking for another guard for quite a while. A senior transferring for his last year is not what a player normally wants to because teams are hesitant to bring in someone and have him sit for a year to only play one year. Perhaps he can graduate in the SUmmer and be eligible right away. He had his limitations but he was an experienced guard who could play the point. As it stands we may have two frosh PGs which is not normally a good thing. Remember AJ's frosh year - showed promise but if he had to play as the only PG the inconsistency would have caused us problems. Add to that he possibility hat his backup may also be a frosh and there are legitimate concerns about the "quarterback" position on the court. I think the staff is also looking for a JC PG and, if that is the case, who leaves next?

I can't help it if Hoopy didn't do what he was supposed to do in practice and watched his pt dwindle to nothing.

If some of you guys want to go into panic mode have at it. I just see zero reason to and in fact I am excited about next season. Practice can't get here quick enough.

No one has to leave. We have one open scholarship to give. (Q) that's why I said we are not through recruiting.

If we get Freeman(fingers crossed) and the staff still wants a JC PG (we supposedly offered one last week who is also a one of the top JCs available) we'll be one over.

Freeman is a long shot. better cross more than your fingers. I do like our chances with Frazier and then the complaint will be lack of big men....LOL
