Great opportunity passing us by in favor of maybe someday as we start over.... Again.

RE: DJ Jeffries enters the transfer portal
I was hoping DJ would return, too. Not totally shocked, but I do think this is one we can overcome. Played great at times, but disappeared at other times. I wish him great things moving forward, but it's also a loss Penny should be able to easily overcome by perusing the portal.

RE: DJ Jeffries enters the transfer portal
I thought he played very poorly and was a turnover machine early in the season. That said, he made great strides later in the season and seemed to regain his confidence. I hate to see him go, but wish him the best.

Next man up!

After watching the game Sunday, which Olive Branch alum do you think will have a more impactful college career, DJ or Matthews?

Is it to late to trade DJ to UK for Camron Fletcher, cash considerations, a future second round pick, a player to be named later and a certain snow cone machine?

Maybe more truth to that than some would think.

There are over 3 kids per D1 school in the Transfer Portal. This is the new normal. Just get used to it and hope that your school can get better players than what left.

This is NOT normal here.....These players just won a Championship that they deserve, as well as this same school just put two high draft picks in the NBA....This stinks

RE: DJ Jeffries enters the transfer portal
It sucks that we are the only school losing players and we aren't going to get any players from other schools. Penny can't recruit. We will be lucky to win 5 games next year.

25% of all D1 schools players are currently in the portal and that number will only grow in the coming weeks. Everyone will be affected by this. Even schools in the FF will eventually lose players to the portal.

There are so many players with extra eligibility and there is no penalty for the transfer. Of course this season was going to be like this. In the end I bet there are 1500 players or more in the portal.

RE: DJ Jeffries enters the transfer portal
It was bound to happen. We had too many commits to return everyone. Penny will absolutely grab some transfers, too. It’s tough to watch players go, but it’s the new reality. Every team will encounter this.

I would take this more seriously if he hadn't been so casual about playing basketball and had played harder for his teammates. He had 54 assists averaging 25 mins in 25 games. He should find a place where he can play on the wing and he is the first option to score. While he was here it never occurred to him how important passing to a teammate and hitting him in his shooting pocket is.

RE: DJ Jeffries enters the transfer portal
In every sport, you have kids and parents who have their asses kissed since middle school.

They are usually the best players on their teams and overwhelm the competition.

As the competition gets tougher and reality slaps them in the face too many choose to quit and start elsewhere instead of staying and fighting for their playing time.

The problem is once their playing days are over they still have 1/2 to 2/3 of their life still to live.

Quitting in the real world is not an option.
