RE: Penny coming up on First Take
No hard questions really. Lots of questions to Penny about Roy Williams and NC. Penny said we deserved to be in the tourney this year. Thinks we can be in national title talk next year “core group is still here, transfer portal is wide open.”

No hard questions about transfers.

About the hardest question he got was about James wiseman and whether it “hurt” our program for him to leave. Penny said he’s a great player and great kid and wished him the best.

Penny talked about autism charity he was working with slingshot since one of his sons has autism.

Down to earth and honest as always.

Baugh leaving hurts nothing. DJ and Boogie are inconsistent. Does DJ and boogie leaving hurt? Only if we are not able to backfill them. But with the recruiting class coming in, I think we will be OK.

We need DeAndre, Cisse and Landers to come back.

Lester...and DeAndre....for sure we need. Cisse and Nolley--only if they want to come back, buy in and get to work. lol

Agreed on Cisse. Nolley, though, was all-conference and NIT Most Outstanding (although I thought LQ deserved it). So, I'd say he bought in. I'd love to see him return.

There’s that shortened rotation we all wanted… LOL. I kid. so far the players who are leaving are easily replaceable in my opinion. just need to fix up this leak before the dam explodes.

Here comes the gamesmanship part: do you plug your known holes ASAP, knowing that even better options might become available later in the off season?

Smart of Penny to be on National TV while he is looking to fill roster spots

He controls the narrative and he gets a free shot at selling a lot of guys at one time

It was Jayden who tested as autistic in the 2nd grade. They did early intervention and he tested out of it in the 3rd grade.

Left:

Cisse
Williams
Dandridge
Quinones
Nolley
Hardaway
Lomax
Nesbitt

That's a strong eight around whom to construct a VERY good team next year. Now if Williams and Nolley both leave ... that would be very bad.

He's the glue and the heart. 16 and 18 rebounds? Come on.

Add an elite point guard and that’s a contender. Don’t need to really “replace” any of what left. Lose Williams and we need a big. Lose Nolley and we need a scoring 2/3.

Am I hearing wrong about Cisse and Nesbitt leaving the team? Is that just speculation by fans or has something been said and we are just wait and see?
