Transfer Portal......and LeBron James and other off season tangents.


Recommended Posts

Good luck to ArMOM Franklin. I'm sure they will be happy in Virginia. 

IU did what they could and made it clear they wanted all of the players in the portal back. They got 4 of 6, which is incredible.

Fife made the best statement - IU has a new approach. You should want to play at IU and if you don't want to be there they will win with our without you. Now they have time to evaluate and hopefully pick up some players that truly want to be on the team.

Plus, the biggest of all, getting TJD  back who was planning to sign with an agent

Hate to see Franklin leave, I’ll harbor no ill will towards the young man , I’ll follow him if I happen to tune into a Virginia game(not likely). Good luck going forward unless Virginia gets IU in the challenge, which is very likely.

I think it was all of the Booos AF heard after the last game as players were leaving the floor.....

Well AF was entertaining offers from U of I and Louisville and you can ask Kofi Cockburn and Jordan Nwora how cruel their fans were during March Madness.

Heck, he can ask former UVA players what it was like after getting embarrassed by UMBC. Oh wait, they only went out and said forget the haters and won the national title the very next year...

They got incredibly lucky with that title run, more so than an average title run, but yes, they did win the title. With a series of improbable finishes and terrible calls all breaking their way.

Give me an “incredibly lucky” national championship any day of the week. It’s called “March MADNESS” after all...

My point was their team drowned out the haters and stuck together during this adversity and the following season turned out as good as you could have asked for.

Yes, the booing was just dumb and unnecessary on so many levels but if that was a major decision in AF leaving then he may need to educate himself more on fanbases across the entire CBB landscape...

Enough of the Armaan talk. Its getting me sad over here. 

Really hope we can get Noah Locke. 

Are you hearing anything positive relative to Locke?  I looked at some lists and there are a number of two guards on the market.  You’d think IU would be an attractive destination with the talent around the position but need for a shooter.

I agree!! I’m a Cathedral alum  as was AF and I wanted him back, BUT he’s gone and let’s talk about the players who wanted to be here. And bring in Locke!

Afraid not, most chatter points to Louisville.

My thoughts on Armaan's situation:  (with special shout out to Pink Floyd)

Hush now baby, baby, don't you cry
Mama's gonna make all of your nightmares come true
Mama's gonna put all of her fears into you
Mama's gonna keep you right here under her wing
She won't let you fly but she might let you sing
Mama's gonna keep baby cosy and warm
 
Hush now baby, baby, don't you cry
Mama's gonna check out all your girlfriends for you
Mama won't let anyone dirty get through
Mama's gonna wait up until you get in
Mama will always find out where you've been
Mama's gonna keep baby healthy and clean
Ooh baby, ooh baby
Ooh baby, you'll always be baby to me
Mother, did it need to be so high?
