    Right, and a bunch of his teammates referred to him as Jel. Such an odd thing to get your undies in a twist over

IW can go somewhere where he can compete, while Minnesota opens another scholarship spot so that Pitino can add real depth to this roster
    Yeah I agree. He could get to the hoop but wasnít explosive enough to finish.
    On the tough defender guard front I would take a guy like Nojel Eastern in a heartbeat. Not a great scorer yet but big, physical, and competes.

    Way too soon to say, but people seem to think that Tre Williams can be that type of player

    That would help fill a major need on this team. Fingers crossed.
    Best of luck to IW

    I will say he plays less NBA minutes than two guys on this team. This is not on Pitino in my mind. He gave him what he had to work on to play and he never got up to speed. My opinion is it is on IW.

    Can't remember people calling guys by a move. No one said "Wow, did you see the game Dream Shake had last night?" It isn't tough to call him by his proper name, or use IW...its easy.
    I agree with this. Its annoying. Maybe thats the reason he's transferring :-)

    I think most us wish him well and are disappointed that it didnít workout here.

    We will see won’t we! Absolutely all on Pitino I know that is for sure! When u get this kinda of a talented player u haven’t had in years u don’t F it up.

    Coffey and Oturu were both higher ranked and both have been bona fide successes so far in their young careers

    I wanted IW to succeed here as much as anyone, but if he makes the NBA, I will name my first child "Gopherhoopsguy"

    Not really a need for 5'11 point guards in the NBA who struggle with an outside shot

    Gonna end up at a small school where he can jack shots. His numbers will be a lot better than they were here, but this isn't a haunting loss.
