I'm not hating at all, but 6'8"??? Maybe in high heels! :p

Much luck at wherever you turn up, Q.

It would be cool if he went to Siena. He could really develop into a force there and you know they have a good shot at making the NCAAs.

I'm surprised Memphis hasn't contacted him. He would be a really good late add for Pasner after everything that has gone on there.

Good luck whereever and for whoever.....

You are always a Hawk Q, In my eyes.

We wish you both well! Once a Jayhawk, always a Jayhawk.

On a practical note: When do we get our two (i think) scholarships back that we lost in the NCAA penalties?

How do these transfers hurt us with regards to graduation rates (which I think is bogus)?

Good for you Quintrell!!!

Any of those schools would be lucky to have you. I am not surprised you have a lot of interest. Good luck on your decision.

The last time they reported results, I think it said transfers don't count against you as long as the transferee is in good academic standing. Same for leaving early for the NBA. I'd hate to have to bet my life on this, but I think that's what it said.

They do count transfers when it comes to graduation rates and the schools they transferred from. Stupid but true.

oldalum--I remember it the same way that you do.

Any word on Appleton as to where he might be going?

billhawk - we will be at full next year. I believe it was 1 scholarship for 2 years that we lost.

If they continue on the path to graduation at the new school, then we are okay.
