Former 3-star big Dwight Coleby announced his transfer from Kansas a few days ago. I was kind of hoping we brokered a trade for Jack and Coleby was a player to be named later. Probably doesn't work that way though unfortunately.

It's interesting how teams dissolve. It happens more often than you might think. Even more interesting is how these same teams are rebuilt. Partially or entirely on the sly.

Discontent can spread pretty rapidly. A lot of these guys are close and point out what they see as flaws with a situation. Then everyone notices those same items and then several guys become fixated on them.

At the same time, other people see opportunities to play where there is a void and are happy to change situations.

Haha that's about what I would have expected from Tony. I do like the idea of a schools committing to a scholarship for two years for grad transfers that the article touched on.

RE: Jack's Transfer Destination
Jones mentioned summer school.

I know why folks on here donate their hard-earned money for summer school for W&M hoops players, but if one of the unintended consequences is that a player can graduate and leave, partially due to that dime paid for summer school, not a good deal.

Fool me once, ...

Jack's legacy may be the drying up of summer school funds at W&M. Wonder if that ever entered the equation ... you know the one about the needs of the one vs the needs of the many.

If the grad transfer counted against graduation rates if they didn't get degrees, that would solve some issues in a hurry. I think it would also change the landscape if players turning pro counted against graduation rates. I'm a UK fan, but you couldn't have 5 freshmen starters every year if you started running out of scholarships.

Another easy fix is this:

Charge the college a scholarship over two years and if the player doesn't complete two semesters they lose it for the entire two year period.

RE: Jack's Transfer Destination
My reaction to this whole event has mirrored Mike Kryzewski's reaction the first time one of his players went pro without graduating.

IT CAN'T HAPPEN HERE! THIS IS NOT WHAT W&M BASKETBALL IS ABOUT! SURELY THIS IS A SIGN THE APOCALYPSE IS UPON US!

I understand what Whitman did (though failing to tell the coaching staff about it until it was too late for them to react - not so much).

I saw it happen at other schools and didn't feel their pain.

It has taken me this long to even be able to comment on it. And I still can't look at the 2017 and 2018 recruiting threads.
