    2021 Transfer Portal

    Troubled Kansas big man Silvio De Sousa enters the transfer portal. Was suspended for half the season after picking up a chair during a brawl with Kansas State in 2020. This past season he did not play as he was in trouble for an off the court aggravated assault case.

    Yep, both he and Myles Johnson.

    Who will be most improved player & Why.

    I'm hoping the most improved person involved is Loaded Chicken Sandwich in terms of his satisfaction with the product. If he is satisfied with the product, then things will be going well. (totally not meant as a shot at LCS.......just that if the product is satisfying the more critical posters, then Woodson has done his job).

    Strange world when a tweet confirms that something that never happened isn't happening.

    2021 Transfer Portal

    Almost didn't work on Aaron Henry. Rumors appeared more than once about him thinking about transferring. Izzo's tough love is a facade, IMO......if you can really play, he turns a blind eye. Wasn't that long ago when Payne and Dawson got into a fight at the team hotel that ended with a busted wall and their punishment was 'not getting to start the game that night'.

    That's four player now that have transferred from Michigan State...and that doesn't include the two players who had committed to MSU that dropped their committments. Only have added one transfer in, a pretty good point guard from Northeastern who averaged 19 points and 5 assists. Have to say that Izzo has been getting his share of misses on recruits lately.

    I only know things that are public knowledge, but am not sure why he didn't fit......6'8", can shoot from the perimeter. I know that there was some things that we weren't privy to which lead to him being briefly benched under Miller.
  9. I’m not. Statistically they were 247th in tempo (slow, but faster than we were). Didn’t shot a ton of threes and weren’t good at it. Offense was very balanced....player leading in shots averaged 10 per game. Leading scorer and only double figure scorer averaged 12 1/2 but five more players averaged over 8 per game.

    Former Illinois/DePaul/Iowa State guard Jalen-Coleman Lands transfers to Kansas. His career starter back in 2015-6 when he averaged 10 points per game as a freshman at Illinois. Played his sophomore year there, sat at 2017-8 as a transfer to DePaul, only played in 9 games due to injury in 2018-9 at DePaul and was medically redshirted, averaged 11 ppg at DePaul in 2019-20, grad transferred to Iowa State and average 14 ppg last year. That's a career that will span 7 years. He has currently played in 133 games in his career (that's 10 more games than Al Durham has played)

    The very well traveled Vance Jackson enters the portal. Stretch 4, 6'9", 238 lbs. As a freshman at U Conn, started 21 games and averaged 8 points and 4 rebounds. Transferred to New Mexico, sat out a transfer year, then played two years, starting 44 games over two years and averaged 12 points and 6 rebounds. Transferred to Arkansas last year and averaged 4 points and 2 rebounds in 12 minutes per game. Has taken over 500 three point shots in his career, hitting 35%.

    Interesting note....Durr missed three games last year against Memphis, Houston, and Central Florida. In those games, they lost to Memphis by 21, Houston by 46, and Central Florida by 16. In the game he played against Memphis, they lost by 1; in the game he played against Houston, they lost by 17. In the game he played against Central Florida, they won by 7. So they were an average -27.7 in the three games he didn't play; against those same opponents, they were -3.7 when he did play. Obviously a small sample space, but that is a HUGE difference to simply be written off.
  13. Re: Brunk v Durr. As much as I appreciate Brunk, he was an Earth bound center before his back issues last year..that has likely gotten worse. He had surgery on a disk issue....having back pain myself, I can tell you that at best when you suffer from back pain you are at best healthy-ish and if it flares up, you are debilitated. A guy Bruno’s size with back issues likely won’t ever produce at the level at did previously.
  14. He was a 9 and 8 guy last year in 26 minutes per game. The level of competition in the American conference shouldn't be mistaken for low D1.....Houston has turned into a contender for the NCAA title, Memphis may underachieve but has as much talent as anyone in the country, Wichita State is pretty much a yearly entrant in the dance, and while Cincinnati was down last year they are typically a bubble team. SMU and Temple have had their moments. FWIW, in the one game Durr played against Houston last year he went 14/7 and was 5 of 7 from the field.
  15. Wait.....is TJD saying that this is the final piece to the puzzle (last infinity stone) or is this about Thanos snapping away half of our roster still and starting fresh? WHY SO CRYPTIC
