    Four of them are starters and one a willing back up center. I can see Lewis and Ruzentshev leaving also. Although it makes more sense for Lewis to leave.

    Actually it is 4. Mann, Locke, Osifo, Glover and Johnson.

    They are not leaving because White is forcing them out. Where is this coming from? They are leaving because this program has been underachieving for 6 years. Just think, last year we didn't have Appleby and Duruji, but we had Johnson, Blackshear and Nembhard, and we barely were going to make the tournament.

    White gets two gallons of water in a bucket 4 miles away from the house in the river, but because of the holes in his coaching ability, he ends up with a half a quart by the time he gets home.

    LOL at all the guys rationalizing this SS. If this is all a part of Whites master plan come out and say it. Be transparent

    Maybe I am looking at this too much from a macro level but honestly how can anyone look at this (recruits, administration, quasi fans) and not see significant red flags. How can anyone with sound judgement not look at our situation and see that there are major issues with Mike White?

    He's a great guy but the quicker he is out of here the better.

    This came from pure speculation. Have no insider information. I don't think it's far fetched to believe that Glover and Osifo were told their roles next year aren't guaranteed or something like that and they decided to transfer. You might be right and there is no plan.

    He was but not very skilled. I could see keeping him around as a role player but he was never gonna develop into someone that we could count on for baskets.

    People in the transfer portal are not going to commit to a program to fill back up roles. That is why they either left the programs they left or if they were starters, they expect to come to a program that can immediately contend for a championship.

    You have people that remained loyal to the program, and then you are going to relegate them to the bench because you bring in an unproven transfer to start in his place????? That is horrible basketball strategy. At least a freshman coming in who is a phenom gets a benefit of the doubt from prior starters, but to bring a disgruntled person into a program that has won nothing in over a half a decade, to be the savior of the program is self defeating. It is a failed strategy that White thinks can save his job.

    Agree. Just would like to see us become more physical, rebound, and play defense. He could do some of those things. Never would be a kid that could score even six or seven points a game with regularity but if he could hold somebody else from scoring and not allow his man to get easy rebounds those type of things are pretty important. Kind of like to keep him around as an 11th or 12 man.

    Which begs the question, why was he (and others like Glover, Okaru, etc.) ever here in the first place? Mike White’s recruiting prowess needs to be seriously questioned.

    So true which is never a good sign that you have to do that.

    Seems I've picked me up a stalker. Gotta love posters who just go through hitting disagree on your posts without saying anything. Especially those who never post. Little does he/she know we have rules against that.
