    These mostly make sense. Not a lot of B12 players among them.

    Deshawn Corprew- SF- Texas Tech

    Has this kid been anywhere for more than a year? Wild.

    Nope. Got kicked off Tech before the season. Would have probably had a good season there if he wasn’t a knucklehead



  • You’d have to think you see a UK player defect sometime this season. Juzang, Brooks and Whitney have all gotten off to a rough start. Add Allen into the mix at some point. All play the same position.

    Then you have Askew, Fletcher, Boston and Clarke all coming in next year.

    Seems like at least two on the current roster will be defects.

    Wow. Really amazing how Cal manages to stockpile and bury so many 5* guys. Whitney’s numbers are rough for a top 10 guy.

    Allen looks like a Lightfoot situation possibly though. From Kentucky, a bit lower ranked.



  • @BShark Yea it’s beyond me. At KU, a 150 ranked 3 star is on the team and someone uses to recruit against us. But at UK, you can stick two 5* guys at the end of the bench no big deal.

    Blows my mind.

    Also somehow Whitney is still mocking in the 1st.



  • Transfer List over 80 already and its December. Probably be over 100 by end of Xmas Break. Trending to break the record again

    mercy , is it getting TO EASY for kids to transfer? - Seems like kids now days sign with a School, some/more then a few feel like they deserve the starting spot actually without working for it. - Get to the school fin out others just as talented if not more, find out they not getting that playing time - so instead of suckin it up - -working on things they need to improve on to get THAT TIME - they just run - -transfer.

    I feel it’s ok to transfer if your recruited by a Coach and then you get there and he is Gone, a lot of these kids actually commit to the Coach - - not to the School. so I mean if that’s the case then ya, your coming to a school to play for that Coach and then he leaves, no way you should be stuck there. But in other cases I think it’s just to easy. However after saying all that - - if a kid is not happy where he is at - -the let him go, I’d rather give a kid his release then to force him to stay and be a Cancer on the team. - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • Being able to transfer isn’t the issue so much as so many kids wanting to transfer. Either there are a lot of really horrid situations out there or reality hasn’t set in for a crapload of kids. I’m thinking it’s more of the second and it’s a fundamental issue for not just basketball.



  • @dylans Ah, the me-me aspect…



  • @BShark The overall trend will be like permanent free-agency. Why stick around 4 years when you can shop around for a better program or at least one that you might think is a better situation.

    Loyalty will no longer be rewarded. In fact, loyalty will be the wrong way to advance or achieve the goals you had in your list.



  • Mitchell brothers are leaving Maryland.

    Mitchell brothers are leaving Maryland.

    Wow why?



  • BeddieKU23 said:

    BShark said:

    Wow why?

    Not getting enough PT I guess.

    “I want to thank Makhel and Makhi for their contributions to the program. This was a decision we felt was best for both sides and we wish them and their family the best moving forward,” Turgeon said in a press release.

    In a joint statement, the Mitchells said: “We want to thank coach Turgeon for the opportunity to attend the University of Maryland. We are extremely appreciative of our time in College Park, but decided it was best to seek new opportunity.”

    The Mitchells who arrived with a reputation for being skilled on the court and charming off of it, but also still maturing and needing discipline. They committed to Maryland before their junior year thanks largely to a relationship with assistant coach Kevin Broadus, who has since left to become the head coach at Morgan State.



  • Why not? Morgan State is a basketball juggernaut, afterall… And I heard their academics are top-notch😏



  • @BShark

    Yikes. Guess they will wait a year to find out



  • So I wonder, does UA get their money back?

    Always keep a gift receipt!



  • Teddy two time Allen ends up at Nebraska. Former West Virginia player that was canned by Huggy bear. Very surprised he got another chance to say the least.



  • @BShark - Mitchell bro’s. are each 50% free throw shooters. Unfortunately, they’d fit right in at KU… 🤔 But they are 6’10”.



  • Transfer Portal has already hit 120.



  • Shaq’s son is leaving UCLA. I’d imagine LSU swoosh’s in here



  • I hope we at least pursue that though…

    Remember that Shaq was a Reebok dude in the NBA. Just saying. Shaq is worth $400M so they don’t NEED the money.

    I just think if Bill called we could probably get them to listen.

    KU did recruit him a little bit.

    I haven’t seen him since he left HS where he looked like an intriguing prospect. A modern big, a lot different from his Dad. I wonder how much his development was impacted by the Heart Issue and losing his freshman year. It’s clear he didn’t mesh with Cronin well enough to stick it out since he wasn’t getting a lot of playing time. Will be interesting to see if he stays West where he’s from or tries to find a different situation East.

    Yea I think he still has his intrigue considering all of the things he’s had to go through this year. And I think Cronin is such a smashmouth basketball guy. Even worse than Self or Tony Bennett. That is definitely not a natural fit for his skillset.

    I do wonder if he’s willing to leave the coast. It’s likely he wouldn’t have to. USC, Oregon, Arizona and Gonzaga would all be places he could go and would lean into his skillset.

    Could he transfer in-conference though since he’s not a graduate. San Diego St could be an option with the season they are having



  • We do really need another big.



  • @BShark project big, Mitch, McCormack. KU needs a 4 more than just any big.



  • dylans said:

    Or, and hear me out, they go 4-guards for forever after Bill wins a Natty this year.



  • @Kcmatt7 I’m ok with the four guard. I’m ok with the right 4 too - Darrell Arthur, Julian Wright, Marcus Morris. You can’t tell me they wouldn’t make this team better. Or a Wiggins/ Jackson type. (as much as Jackson bitched about being played out of position, he sure did better under Bill than in the nba. So was he really out of position for his skill set?)



  • With what’s returning playing 4 guards is the way to go. Garrett, Thompson, Agbaji, Braun, Enaruna- that’s the core of the team right there in the backcourt. That’s without mentioning Harris & Wilson. We don’t need 7 guys fighting for 3 spots so it would seem natural that the staff tries to cross develop Tristan/Wilson due to their height as the 4th guard. That way you still have 5 guards for 3 spots.

    I think a transfer big that’s athletic and has some skill around the rim would really give this group a boost. I think Dave will continue to get better but I just don’t see him being able to do it on his own. The drop off from Doke is looking scary next season. I am intrigued by 5th year Prison Mitch. We know what intangibles he brings. He was developing a 3 pointer in year 3. I see him being a matchup 4 and Dave’s primary backup at the 5. But that’s where a veteran big that could play 10-12 minutes a game could be handy. If Silvio doesn’t return we are not that big of a team and I think Self would explore getting a 6’9 + guy. I see Muscadin as a redshirt candidate.

    There is a lack of options at the moment. Unless JT Thor becomes an option again the Top 100 is bare for any impact bigs. Maybe Self can find an Euro that is ready to go or just get involved with any bigs that come available in the spring through the coaching carousel or the transfer market.



  • @dylans Josh was a great college four guy, total mismatch.



  • Khalil Whitney leaving UK. He was always pretty soft on them. Bet he ends up at Illinois, where he wanted to go in the first place.



  • @FarmerJayhawk

    Wow that’s surprising that Cal can’t stockpile 7 wings and keep them all happy.

    Illini are full up right now but if Whitney comes calling those things will work themselves out

    What else you got?

    Can you predict a National Championship for the good guys. I suggest you make it happen



  • The funny part in Whitney leaving UK at least for now is that him leaving didn’t necessarily indicate he was transferring. His stock has plummeted to late 2nd round (and that’s a bunch of bologna in itself). Wonder if he blames Cal, ha.

    If KU makes it to the tournament healthy, I will literally put my money on it…

    I’m going to roll my Chiefs winnings right on over lol.

    Yea I didn’t read his statement as him transferring. I think he goes pro.



  • Another feather in Cal’s cap. Don’t even need minutes to be drafted derp.

    Kind of what Coach K did for years, and it did not work out well for him either. Only after he again woke up did he get back to being Duke.
