    Someone do the dirty work of diving their boards and pulling the most outrageous posts to share for the good of us all.

    Probably Will Wade and Mike Rhoades broke that program, but I do like taking the credit for it.

    Are you saying Silva leaving is related to improper benefits given to him by current and/or former coaches ie Wade?

    Think more of that fact that Wade was only there for 2 years which causes a lot of roster and personel changes. Then the school tried to maintain a similar style by hiring from the same Shaka coaching tree in Rhoades. I cant tell if Rhoades is a good or bad coach. I mean he did win the regular season the year they were supposed to suck after losing Mo Ali-Cox, Jordan Bugress, JeQuon Lewis and Samir Doughty. But then this year they were supposed to run the table.

    Jury definitely still out on Rhoades. His best player went through his like 6th ACL surgery and was never the same, Jenkins mysteriously is a no show most games and then leaves the team right before the end of the season, Vann had family issues all year and lost all basketball ability. The team was carried by a really good freshman and MSS. Who knows what next season brings without MSS and the rest of those seniors. Bones Hyland will be an elite A10 guard if he sticks around but the rest of that roster is mostly mystery at this point. They have a damn good recruiting class but we have seen first hand the trials of continually handing out too many mins to freshmen.

    Rhoades has only made the tournament once in his first three years. That’s unacceptable at VCU.

    Maybe it just means Div III coaches should stay there or at most be assistants?

    Robert Carpenter is leaving Bona. Not surprising — they already had a bunch of young wings and just got a transfer from Kent State yesterday

    Marcus Santos-Silva is not in the transfer portal as a graduate transfer, source told ESPN. I'm told graduating in three years and being immediately eligible is the goal, but he does have a few classes to take in the summer.

    https://athleticdirectoru.com/articles/investigating-college-basketballs-transfer-movement/:

    "At the time of this publication, 4,360 men’s basketball student-athletes have transferred to or from a D-I basketball program over the past six seasons, according to Verbal Commits. College basketball’s transfer rate is the second-highest in the NCAA among male sports, where approximately 33% of players transfer at some point in their collegiate career. In short, transfers have become a vitally important aspect of college basketball. Adding players from the transfer market to fill out rosters can sometimes mean the difference between winning a national championship and suffering an early tournament defeat. Losing players via transfer also carries a similar importance.

    In order to get a better understanding of how transfers affect college basketball teams, we decided to take a deep dive into the data. Using Verbal Commits’ transfer database (which dates back to 2012), we were able to compile a big picture overview of: players’ transfer destinations, how conferences are impacted as a whole, the average recruiting rankings of the players that transfer, and whether players are transferring to teams that are better or worse than their previous teams."

    "Nearly 60% of transfers, instead of joining other D-I teams, have left D-I basketball completely since the 2012 offseason. Then comes Conference USA, which has added 92 players. The ACC leads all power conference teams with 83 players transferring into the conference over the last six years. Only three players have transferred to Ivy schools.

    The idea that college basketball players tend to transfer to better teams is almost entirely a myth."

    "As shown in the table, the majority of transfers are joining teams that typically have a very similar winning percentage."

    "Coaching tenure length also plays a part in college basketball’s transfer movement. Unstable coaching staffs tend to have more players transfer out of their university than programs that have retained the same head coach.

    In the past six seasons, teams that have retained the same head coach have averaged 10.4 players transfer out of the university, while teams with two or three coaching changes have averaged 14.0 and 15.5 transfers over the six-year span, respectively.

    There is not a strong correlation for players transferring into programs, though. Regardless of zero or three coaching changes, teams average anywhere between four and six players transferring into their respective programs over the six-year span. The number is slightly higher for programs that have had more coaching changes. Presumably, this is due to the teams’ need to fill scholarship spots, because programs that have more coaching changes tend to have more players transfer out of the university."

    "Though many have speculated that there is a legitimate connection between transfers and its effects on recruiting, our studies do not confirm this to be true."

    "What was found is that the teams that have lost the most transfers, on average, have seen a slightly larger improvement in recruiting class percentile over the six-year period than the teams that have added the most transfers. This could be partially due to teams adding quality recruits and then seeing players transfer out of the university because of expected loss of playing time or visibility. Other potential causes could included changes in a program’s coaching staff, conference realignment, or NCAA sanctions or penalties. Only two of the ten programs that have lost the most transfers since 2012 have had a decline over national recruiting rankings.

    Transfer destinations and proximity to a given player’s hometown can also play a part in the transfer market.

    In total, of 2017 D-I transfers from either United States or Canada, 168 players transferred closer to their hometown, while 145 players transferred further away from their hometown."

    "Transfers have become a vital part of today’s generation of college basketball. Understanding trends such as which players are transferring, where they are headed, and how it affects programs in the future can have a significant impact on any and all college basketball programs."

    No one transferring out of Fordham? Must be because Jeff Neubauer is an amazing coach.

    But seriously, how the hell does he still have a job? It's been 5 years already and he only has one year left on his contract.

    I agree - how can you justify a significant buyout with so many financial uncertainties?

    I mean, it's not like Fordham gets a significant portion of its budget from NCAA tournament money.

    Can't pay two coaches when you might have to furlough workers in the AD and you're not certain there's going to be a season next year. Also, how are you gonna make a good hire when you can't meet candidates face to face?

    I've had this debate on twitter recently and I'm amazed people think there's another side to this. Coaching turnover is historically low for a reason.
