    The way Oats has completely overhauled the roster is insane, with the addition of Burnett I’m sure Rojas is out, but who do we let go to take Gurley?

    maybe jq leaves but i havent seen him mentioned in any mock. maybe kah or miles leave. maybe someone like shack think he fits better elsewhere. who knows really

    If we add Gurley we will have one of the most talented rosters in basketball next year.

    with or without him we're 13 deep. much better than having beetle bolden getting 22mpg two years ago. the severe lack of depth over the last decade was simply depressing. i don't know how to even process this.

    Would love to add Gurley. I hate losing KAH for it but Gurley can definitely ball.

    Evidently KAH helped a lot with landing primo but not with Bediako. Evidently they were really close.

    It was my single biggest concern. It's amazing how well he's done.

    This time a year or so ago, I was criticizing him for not turning over the roster. :facepalm:

    It will be KAH that leaves imo if we land Gurley. Right or not. Gurley is an impact right now and KAH is still a question mark. I’d rather not lose him but if you can add someone with the skills of Gurley you have to. He would start next year.

    I know Shack has games where he goes off, but I don't think I would miss him. He's a liability on defense and regressed offensively last year IMO.

    I really hope not. I'm more excited about him than any big man recruit since JaMychal. I really think he's going to be sick and a day one starter.

    At the risk of Clown Baby bumping my post 4 years from now, I am more excited about him than Bediako. He might not be as great of a pro prospect but for our system and what our team needs, he is a great fit.

    We have a better roster than Calipari's Kentucky two years in a row. That is wild to think about. That guy has collected possibly more talent than anyone over his career

    the only explanation to the rojas situation is oats was used to looking at mac tier talent. that would explain raymond hawkins as well.

    NCAA D1 Council is expected to meet on 4/15. At that meeting the one time transfer rule is expected to be approved.

    I'm just going to assume he was trying to fill out spots.

    Even so, that still wasn't as bad as Grant bringing over Ben Eblen when he first got here.

    Remember that year they tried to get that "Fab 4" or whatever going? Justin Coleman, Riley Norris, Devin Mitchell, and then some kid they wanted that ended up at Butler averaging like 3 points a game. :laugh:

    '10 - Trevor Releford, Mardracus Wade, Jason Carter, Kendall Durant, Marvell Waithe, Carl Engstrom
    '11 - Levi Randolph, Trevor Lacey, Nick Jacobs, Rodney Cooper, Moussa Gueye
    '12 - Devonta Pollard
    '13 - Jimmie Taylor, Algie Key, Shannon Hale
    '14 - Justin Coleman, Riley Norris, Devin Mitchell, Jeff Garrett

    as much as i love releford and taylor, would any of those guys get minutes next season?

    Lacey would tear it up. I think Releford would get minutes.
