Oh no, 2 bad basketball players that are attention-hounds are leaving the program!!!?!? Whatever will we do?

Andy Tweedy 6 years, 8 months ago

I don't know if they're bad, but they do seem to like the attention.

So what's the story here? If this was the 15th man on the KU bench, there'd be multiple editorials from Keegan and a crack statistical analysis from Tait. Can we at least get some quotes on or off the record what happened here?

KU doesn't have 15 players on their bench.

Jonathan Allison 6 years, 8 months ago

But all 18 can't be on the bench, 5 of them have to be in the game!

What was their ranking coming in? Did they play to their ranking? Did they play to expectations for freshman players? Was their a reason Bonnie didnt play them more? Are they leaving for personal reasons?

Doesnt anybody think that the LJW readership may have a slight wondering as to why they are leaving? A chance at investigative journalism right here on a silver platter...

I'm recalling fairly favorable reviews - of their game, prior to last year. For comparison, Dakota posted Jamari type #'s, but Dylan is behind even a couple coach kids all while being freshman. Dylan's situation might have as much to do with the move as anything.

The trend is what is a bit more worrisome to me. Is this the 4th & 5th players to transfer this year? The transfers have been happening for a few years as well - again going on memory/no IJ. They aren't all "I'm not getting PT" transfers either. It is the most worrisome aspect of leadership at this point IMO.

Pretty sure they were both solid 3-stars. Too bad really because I think they were Hollywood stars in their minds. Whether it was getting in the way of focusing on basketball, and Bonnie directed them out, or they weren’t getting enough attention and left on their own free will. Something tells me it has to do with their stratospheric vanity.

I think Vegas will suit them much better.

Good luck girls. Rock Chalk.

I guess winning isn't a big deal to them? UNLV?

Maybe they are leaving because winning is a big deal to them. I inferred from this comment that the poster thinks Bonnie has established a prominent program instead of at best a mediocre one.
