Really think next year he will explode. Maybe he wants to be in a situation where he is more of the “guy” then here where there are many “guys”. Trying to improve draft stock. At any rate, it stings. I really enjoyed watching him especially towards the end of the year.

No, not a direct shot at all. It's the world of college sports in 2021.
He struggled last year and considered transferring. Penny got him to stay. This year, he had more struggles.
He's a west coast guy and I'm guessing he ends up back out there. Maybe comfortable surroundings will help his mental and consistency issues.

I'm thinking the national average for transfers is 3 per team this year. If we come in under that, it will be great.
Of course, we also have a couple who will want to test professional waters.

I guess this happens when a kid who was going to Duke has to share the PG spot with the coach’s pet who can’t shoot and turns the ball over at the same rate while being considered the rock and a coach on the floor. Any wonder why we played better with Lomax out?

But you don’t think in anyway this is telling Penny that his program is not good enough to get me to where I want to be? If he believed Penny was the best person to prepare him for the league, why does he go?

Oh well.
I loved watching him when he was on, painful to watch when he wasn't.
[b]He's just so inconsistent.[/b]
Of the 6 key guys to get back, Boogie was 6th IMO.
Wish him well, but he can be replaced.

The inconsistency was Penny favorite....Boogie needed to grow into the role......And that performance won't be easy to replace....Boogie is a Superstar performer and had potential to be one of the greats here....This is devastating 03-banghead

RE: Boogie Ellis enters the transfer portal
It’s the nature of the beast. The nostalgia of having guys play together for years is rapidly disappearing..
Just REJOICE that we have a coach who knows how to evaluate talent and mesh it together. Most schools don’t have that.
Rest assured, We will be loaded again before the end of summer.

Good Boogie is better than Good Lomax. But Good Boogie only shows up half the time. That was the problem.

The problem is programs aren't built or sustained by collecting disgruntled players from other programs - or thru talented freshmen who leave after 1-2 yrs.

Seriously don't expect those to realize the true value of what Boogie was doing....He was phenomenal in his performances and how he was able to space the floor for the other contributors....I'm going to reserve my comments further on this matter....I respect everyone here and rather NOT bicker, but I am tremendously hurt, as at this point....We have suffered a tremendous setback....After what this team accomplished, it's devastating to me

Please. Lomax is Andre Allen. A 8-12 minute player. Boogie was the only guard that could beat his man off the dribble and finish at the basket. Other teams also had to play his 3pt ability. Lomax can’t do any of that and defenses played him accordingly.

One was a senior, part time starter getting major minutes.
One was a freshman rotation guy.
The other was buried on the bench.
