RE: Wont just be Memphis. Bout to be a Free For All..
There's always something to worry about. The biggest one used to be whether your best players were going to declare for the draft. Now it's how many you'll lose each season, no matter their NBA readiness or potential. It's not fun as a fan but why force somebody to stay in a situation they're unhappy with? It's pure spite to waste a year of their lives as a deterrent.

Savor the memories and wish them well, and worry about the life or death stuff. Let the coaches worry about recruiting and re-recruiting and judge the results when the time comes.

A very cogent, well thought-out statement. Thank you for this breath of sanity.


Unfortunately, there's no place on this board for such statements as this!! We must bleat and beat our chests and throw ourselves on the floor and flail around in our combined misery! It's what we do!!! 03-lmfao

I agree with your statement. The rest is my attempt at humor....

Sometimes I try to be the adult. It usually goes poorly.

If these are the 3 big losses it hurts emotionally but clarifies the rotations. Only Lester could break out of the 2-3 logjam and shine consistently, and that was by having irreplaceable D and rebounding.

Think of it this way.
Today’s college BB coach has to recruit next years class every year. Plus he’s gotta recruit his own players to stay. Plus he’s gotta recruit transfers to replace the kids he’s already convinced to play who change their minds and decide to leave.
As a lover of college BB, this transfer loophole can’t close soon enough for me.

In a game where the best recruiter wins every year, I'll take Penny over 99% of the other coaches out there.

Correct

No question Boogie and DJ were good players and Baugh had a toughness to him

And nearly all players get even better from their sophomore to their Junior year. But were Nolley and Williams’ contributions to Memphis as much as we would hope for out of DJ and Boogie? Yes

The edginess is in the unknown. We KNOW Boogie and DJ will be good solid experienced players here next year. And whoever transfers in maybe better, may be worse. That is why this many transfers nationally have fans nervous. But it is simply sports nerves

That KY transfer to UCLA, Juzang, raised his game a bit. I suspect Penny will find similar players to ours transferring out.

Right now it’s an average 3.5 per team and will end up at least with 4 before all is done

If yearly transfers are permanent, Ike will no longer follow college sports
Who would want to coach college sports
U half to kiss ass to get them to enroll and then kiss ass to get them to stay. Plus u have to deal with going pro.
ncaa u couldn't f it up anymore if u were trying.
Ike has know problem with transferring and waiting a yr and leaving early for the pros
If this is permanent, get ready for a major S... Show

College sports has been a sh!tshow lie and now the NCAAs hens are coming home to roost.

I love the tigers but I hope the whole thing burns to the ground.

Yep, I got more important things to worry about than a bunch of spoiled 18 years olds and their emotions. Hell, I gotta go buy a new band saw blade. This sucks...

My understanding is that it reverts to normal after this year.

I am not saying that this whole amateur business model did not need to undergo some major changes, but the whole house of cards may be on the verge of collapse. Sad...

Agree. Plus, it’s hard to reproduce the chemistry that players have when they play 3 or 4 years together.

Pretty sure plan is to allow free one time transfer permanently. Still needs final approval but assumption is that it will pass

Could not agree more, I will continue to try and be a Tiger fan as long as I can stand it. But the last 15 years or so have been spiraling down and this "everybody switch teams" thing is ridiculous.
