AG needed everyone possible to return. He didn't have time to go find what he really wanted. And I'm guessing he did a sell job on all of them with the only concern being keeping them. Juniors and Seniors get the short end of the stick especially because they now have to weight sitting a year or taking a chance with a coach they had no choice in. AG isn't looking at all of them as players he can fit into his system, he's looking at some of them as place holders. You can't really blame AG because if he was being completely honest with them as far as fitting into what he's really looking for there's the risk of not being able to field a real D1 basketball team.

It's just not a good situation all around. I think the NCAA needs to wave the rule under these circumstances. This way coaches can be more honest with the players he might inherit and also there will be a bigger pool of players from other teams that have coaching changes to fill his roster with.

I just can't fully blame a player for having his college career turned upside down due to things outside his control. I'm not blaming AG either, I blame the NCAA for not having a rule that states that a change in coaching allows a player to transfer and become immediately eligible to play.

I agree with your sentiments here. It’s crap that a coach can go wherever they want whenever they want, but players are penalized for transferring . That said, I see a potential opportunity for growth on the players‘ parts. If college basketball is really supposed to “prepare you for things later on in life, “ what happens later when these “student athletes “ get a new boss in the working world? That manager more than likely has some different ideas or a different... system/way of doing things . I wish mentors of these players talk about how this is an opportunity to learn to adapt to the best of their ability. Consequently, when they are sitting in an interview and asked a question about how that individual handles Situations when things go awry, They can lean on their college basketball experience, point to this exact situation, and have a great story to tell. *Yes, I realize I’m talking like a 30 something who’s been through these kinds of things a couple times, hence my mention of mentorship.*
