Well I mean in Kentucky the grass is blue! Haha.

No it isn’t…not without the right kind of shrooms anyway. 

Kidding of course. Ironically, I did plant my yard as all bluegrass.

@KDBposted that Trayce has officially declared for the draft while maintaining eligibility.  No real surprise there.  Was a horrible twitter graphic to try to read though.

This will just make it harder for the coaching staff to know if we need to replace him or not

Because this can drag on until the middle of May.  Most players won't commit that late so players like Reneau or Broehm might not commit to IU if they don't know if TJD is leaving.

 

I think the staff knows which way he is leaning so they can prepare properly and/or have a contingency in place. This comes at no surprise. TJD needs to take this step. 

With that NIL deal I’m guessing that he comes back unless he receives some unexpected promises from NBA teams.

Trayce is one of my favorites of all time and I agree with his process.  Plus his note was all class, as it always is with him.  Best wishes to him and I hope for his dreams to come true first and foremost.  Phenomenal kid.   

 

Anybody that has hard feelings towards Trayce about this is an idiot.  As fine a young man and program ambassador as HoosierNation has ever had.

Woody is no dummy.  He knew Trayce would test the waters.  He even said he was ready.  Probably encouraged him to go through the process.  So this shouldn't be a suprise.  

Not worried about replacing him in May.  There'll be plenty waiting things out if he does leave.

Go Hoosiers!!!

So you'd rather him just go and not keep his eligibility?

100%. I want him to do what is best for him, but would love for him to come back and have the type of season that young man deserves in terms of team success.

For the most part, either go or stay.  For him personally I think it is the right thing to do but I am more worried how it effects IU going forward
