    How many should be allowed in the transfer portal before we restrict their rights?

      Is the rule still the each player is allowed one transfer without sitting out a year?

      There was so many "Covid" rules that I honestly haven't kept up with it.

        Last I heard a wavier had to be granted to keep from sitting out a year after the second transfer. May have changed.

          Yes, my recollection as well. However, I heard that one of the LSU players in the portal expects to be granted a waiver since Wade was fired. If the NCAA starting granting waivers right and left, what is the point of even having a rule requiring a player to sit out a year.

            I just saw, on Twitter, where Brooks tweeted that he played with the greatest player in college bb. That sounds as if either he or Oscar or both are gone.

              I think it just means he played with this year’s greatest player.

              Too many people assume subtext and innuendo in everything, when in reality most of these comments — especially from players — are pretty innocuous.

                As far as Oscar returning, why would he? He's won every POY there is, I can't see his draft stock ever being higher. Plus, if he returns he could suffer a career-ending injury.

                    The thinking is that he won't play in the NBA and that he would have a better shot at millions via an NIL deal (if they can resolve his visa problems) than he would failing to make the NBA.

                      To make a boatload of money in the comfort of the USA. If/when they get NIL sorted out for him, it’s a no-brainer. His draft stock was “mid-second,” then it peaked around “top of the second/maybe end of the first,” but has since fallen back to “mid-to-late second if drafted at all.” He has very few draft prospects, so it’d be two choices: come back to UK and make millions in NIL, or go overseas. He’s trying to do everything in his power to get his mother to the States; overseas is even less appealing for him than most other guys.

                          If we grab this guy we’ll make a clean sweep.

                          • I don't think Oscar Tshiebwe ever plays a whole lot in the NBA. I've said that since the beginning. Just does not check off any of the boxes the NBA is looking for in 2022.

                              Wouldn’t mind him playing at UK.

                              • Keion Brooks to test the waters with the NBA with option to return to UK

                                IMO...he will be back
