Heck no Skyhops, who did? But now out of eligible 13 players to comeback, five have already declined. They are KyKy,Ramsey, Wilcher , Griffin, and Carter! There may be one or two more at least Stanley and Scruggs? That would be over half. Not good %.
You’re not the only one who follows this remember! Thx ... Biggernlife
When, where did Griffin announce he wasn't coming back???... Dan

The transfer portal is out of control.

800+ on it as of this morning. that's an average of 2.5 per school. last year on this date it was 439.

Assuming he feels the coach will give him his minutes which is the biggest factor in all these transfers all over. There's obviously been quite a big sample of fans who have not felt that Steele allocates the minutes properly regardless of who has earned the minutes. Be it right or wrong, guys look elsewhere if they don't feel they're getting a fair shake. That's the game now.
this is the biggest issue i have with ALL of this (and this is not stated against you, coach), is that these players think they should just be GIVEN minutes, just because. they want to be promised something they haven't even EARNED yet. it just bothers me.

where have the Jason Love's gone? the dudes who come in, work their a$$e$ off to get better and take their opportunity when it comes. they're just not many that have that mentality anymore, and it's disappointing. everyone wants what they think they should GET instead of earning it.

i don't envy Steele at all in having to deal with that year in and year out.
It's a bigger issue in that when you aren't making the tourney and having success like conference or tourney champs there is always going to be doubt from young players about "their" time.

GT center in the portal. Big loss there. Not easy to come by big guys.

C.J. Wilcher has committed to Nebraska,
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

as sour as we are on our X program, at least for this week, we are looking much better than that University across town. they are a hot mess and it's starting to get embarrassing. So, guess it could always be worse....
