That would be hilarious if schools put up statues of random old-school celebrities.

CU has the Glen Miller Ballroom and he only attended, didn't graduate.
Did you see that ludicrous display last night?

Yeah, I don't think that's a big deal. Not everyone associated with a university finished their degrees, especially in those days. Guys had to leave for war, the military or whatever.

Oh, they make a big deal of him, I suppose more because his archives are here rather than because of the 3 semesters he spent in '26-'27.

I would have gone Larry Linville, Byron White, Rick Reilly, Jim Gray, or Chris Fowler. Staying away from the South Park guys.

So Turgeon extends through 2026.
Morsell opts for the draft but will keep eligibility, but also enters the transfer portal. Apparently he wants to play point. Still could return to college park, but the rumor mill says that won't be the case.
Terps also get Fatts Russell from U of RI and Former G-town Hoya big man Qudus Wahab. Have to be better than Chol Marial who is leaving Maryland after 2 very poor years.

I was fine with the transfer portal at first but man it sure seems nuts. Probably that free year of scholarship magnifying the impact this year.

Are both Miller brothers going to be moving back in with their parents now they've both been axed?

I’m super curious about Fatts at a major. He has A-10 volume scorer written all over him but maybe that’s because of what he’s being asked or trying to do there.

My concern with the 2000 point scored transferring to UK. Davidson or Richmond I can’t recall at the moment.

Grady is legit. His risk might be that there are more guys like him at the major level and he’s more of a 4th option or 3rd guard on a legit tourney team.

I think that’s worth it then. But who knows with UK anymore.

A fair amount seems to be freshmen jumping after one season because they didn't get "enough" playing time (quotes used because it's a sliding scale). The lack of a required redshirt year has a lot of players looking for a better option, as well.

His whole story is kind of interesting; he was a major recruit but went to Davidson because he wanted to follow in Curry's footsteps. Pretty sure he wasn't supposed to be a 4(+) year player but here we are. A-10 tends to have a lot of super athlete types or skilled meh athletes and he seemed to fit a much more complete profile than we usually have.
