    I've got some maroon colored glasses too but haven't seen any news outlets or college bball sources project us in the ncaa's.

    A sig. part of these waiver's are the applicant's academic progress and achievement. Speculating, but I'm guessing something academic held up the decision; and ultimately resulted in the denial.

    Mark Smith was given the waiver after his transfer to Missouri. He left due to playing time. Carr’s situation involved a coach being fired and he doesn’t get it? The NCAA continues to find ways to make them look stupid.

    Thats because apparently Underwood was ok with it whereas Pitt clearly wasn't.

    Marcus Carr was named to the all-ACC all-Academic team, so I doubt academics were a problem.

    BS process. Not transparent enough and as a result, no one knows what to expect or why cases are approved sometimes and not others. The departing schools should have no say. The kid lost his coach. He, and everyone else who loses a coach should have a full set of options to play where they want.

    Speculation dude. Can't you read? If you're implying it was some sort of racial commentary on my part, you are a moron.

    Andy Katz has us as an 8 seed, Jerry Palm has us as an 11. Lunardi doesn't even put us on the bubble.

    CBSSports has Minnesota an 11 seed in their projections.

    Regardless of whether or not they denied the waiver, it was a garbage move by a garbage organization to wait this long to decide.

    Also, with or without him, this team absolutely should be a tourney team.

    Looks like someone at Pitt got a wild hair up their rear in regards to this kid and called in favors to get his waiver sacked. Seems "House of Cards"-ish I know, but that's politics and just would not surprise me. My guess

    Sounds like Gophers are at least appealing.

    I’ve seen several people comment about Pitt having something to do with the denial. How would they have anything to do with this?
