    Reports are all over that Mike is likely to transfer....hate if it's true, I mentioned him being unhappy earlier this year and hoped it wouldn't lead to this....

    Why would it be deleted if it's not a baseless rumor? I don't think DevilsIllustrated would randomly make up stuff about players transferring on twitter.

    Smells like pre-emptive damage control.

    The only thing on DevilsIllustrated.com is a link on the message board about the transfer. I'm not sure how that is the same thing as DenilsIllustrated reporting a transfer.

    Mmmm, BBQ!

    DI is reporting a likely transfer.

    Could be the same situation as Nolan.

    Why would he do this? He is likely better than Hood anyway, right? Hood also wouldn't even be an option to play until 2013-2014. This is nuts if it is true. I hope it isn't.

    This doesn't make any sense. Next year I expected G to play a huge role at the 3 - getting between 12-16 min/game, or maybe even start if he beat out Murphy. I really hope this is just a rumor...

    I looked at this team last night at the banquet and thought, this might begin to be somewhat athletic with Gbinje, Murphy, Mason, and our new recruit. Now one of our four athletic players leaving you have to question, why? Boy do we need to start recruiting athletes like Ky., UCLA and even State did this year. Fans pay mega bucks to support this program and should expect more than a team without at least two super stars.

    Far as I know, UCLA recruited one great athlete this year, and we recruited the same guy. He just decided to go to UCLA instead. And you really think we ought to adopt the State recruiting model? Why, because they (and UCLA for that matter) have been performing so much better than Duke over the past (fill in whatever number you want here) years?

    The most puzzling part of your post is that the rumored transfer of one player (which may or may not occur) somehow means in your mind that we aren't recruiting properly.

    Maybe you should ask for your money back.

    It seems like it is being more widely reported now:

    This source quotes the original single source... not really a confirmation of anything.

    Not sure where I said "confirmed".

    The link was provided to show there's more smoke out there.
    I remember years ago when it was first reported that McBob would leave early for the NBA draft. I was at first upset that a "source" would report such inaccurate information. I learned then to listen to the good old cliche - where there's smoke....

    I wish G the best of luck no matter what he decides.
    I just find the timing interesting: night after the banquet; in the midst of a recruiting battle for several recruits.

    If he transfers, he will have to sit out another year. That is basically 2 years of no basketball. People say players get better in practice, I agree with that statement, but I say, players get even better in games against opponents that their not familiar with.

    I'm ticked off about this transfer.

    at whom and for what?

    G wasn't ready to contribute here so he didn't play.
    G would rather continue his career elsewhere, so he did.

    I'm not sure why anyone would have reason to be "ticked off"

    Frustrated at the situation?

    Because it's frustrating for a fan to dream about the potential of the team and its players, then have ones of those players unexpectedly transfer for reasons the fan can't understand?

    Seems very understandable to me that a fan would be upset to lose a player with a lot of upside, particularly for reasons that are unknown to said fan, as their frustrations are compounded be lack of understanding.

    Zeigler and Hood interest now makes sense

    I was wondering why we made such a hard push for these guys.....seems like the staff may have known this was coming.

    Hood seems like a real possibility now.

    Not a bad swap if it turns out that way.

    Bummer

    If this is accurate what a bummer. I think a big part of the issue in regards to transfers (not specifically G) is that most of these guys don't want to take the time that is required to develop. Not every recruit comes to duke and averages 10 points a game. It is hard to get a young man who was the guy in high school to buy into a system that might require him to develop for a couple of seasons. Like I said above not sure if this applies to G, because I think after another season he could be a valuable team asset. What I want to know is how KU has gotten so many guys to wait for their time to shine. Anyway hope he stays seems like a good guy.
