    So Who Stays and Who Goes?

    Might as well start this now...

    Paolo, AJ, Mark, Wendell and Keels all locks to go. So we return Roach, maybe Joey and Blakes?

    I think Mark, Wendell, and Keels could very well all be second rounders.

    Sorry - this discussion now is unacceptable. Had to be said.

    I could see the argument that it's in poor taste after another terrible loss...

    ...but I think it's acceptable. Always prudent to look toward the future.

    I'm not seeing Keels as a first rounder right now. He really could use another year, and I hope he considers it.

    When the season is over. This season is still going on. Give a week- geez and see if Duke is still dancing

    Your first sentence is accurate. The only reason you posted this now was because of the loss. Had we won last night, I am quite sure you would not have made this post. Hence, it is in poor taste and unacceptable.

    I read somewhere that K might leave after this season. Huge if true.

    Good thing he didnít announce it publicly or else the team might face unnecessary pressure to win

    Or not.

    The players aren't focused on leaving, and as a fan I'm not either.

    Before the next loss: rumor mongering.

    After the next loss: predictions.

    Always been that way.

    We hope; but if I were 18 years old and 3 months from signing a multi-million $$ contract, donít know that I wouldnít be looking ahead a bit.

    A couple million certainly lessens the sting of losing doesnít it. 😃. And curious how the previous poster knows what our players are focused on currently.

    It's something I've actually wondered most of the season. Who, if any, would be around to help the transition to Jon with experience? Or would he basically be starting from scratch with the recruiting class?

    I guess we'll find out soon enough.

    But I will say I've never really understood this almost superstitious belief of "How dare ye speak of season yonder while season current is still upon us!"

    I've never seen harm in discussing the future, realizing that games yet to be played could still alter decisions to be made.

    At a minimum, Roach and Blakes should be back next year. Maybe Joey.

    Maybe Duke gets lucky and Moore, Jr. or Williams return.

    You think Keels is for sure gone?

    I can see Moore returning. That would not shock me. Mark returning would be a shocker. We are bringing in a TON of size next year. We would have to play triple towers of MW returned.

    The bigger question is if Roach and Blakeís will make good jumps over the summer. I would love for Roach to become next yearís Jared Butler or Davion Mitchell. That bodes well for us.

    Will leave the rest of my thoughts until April when our season is done.

    I would say heís the most physically developed guards in the Draft pool so Iím not sure what heíd gain from coming back versus the risk of injury. I think heís gone. Would be pleasantly surprised if he returned.

    Yea thatís true about Mark. Heís probably gone. Roach will be a stud next year. Heís going to be a great starting PG. He has really come on strong during the ACCT. Blakes will be a solid backup.

    But we can still have a sensational ending this year. This team despite what theyíve been thru the last two Saturdays is still in a good position to win some more games this year.
