    I hope not. Would be a significant loss.

    I just chalked it up to DP starting yet another unnecessary thread.

    They've got to manufacture their news somewhere.

    I knew that the Denver Post uses ****** sources, but I had no clue that DrunkPanda was one of them.

    It is also on dailycamera. I hope they at least wait till after spring practices before making any decisions.

    I saw Ringo mention it...but didn't one of his family members come on here recently to say he's sticking with CU?

    Yeah, but anyone leaving now would give Mac2 another scholarship for this year's incoming class, which is small to begin with. So if he's gonna leave, sooner is better than later. Of course, I hope he stays.

    Mike Bohn is not granting transfers until after spring semester. He knows a lot of players are overly emotional and wants them the opportunity to work with the new staff before deciding. I completely agree.

    Interesting. I always wondered what gave schools the authority to have to approve transfers, so I just looked it up. From the NCAA website:

    As the parent of GT all of this transfer talk is new to me .....haven't talked to my son yet to see if this is any truth to it but I will get some more info and keep you guys updated, me personally think it a bad idea to transfer but in the long run its his decision.

    We definitely want GT here, he has a bright future. There is a lot going on right now, things will calm down.

    sounds like he wants to... hate to see him go, me thinks his #'s would increase dramatically with good coaching, a plan and this offensive scheme... If he is here I will root for him, if not, then CU

    Just needs to give the new staff a chance. Alec Burkes was set on leaving when Bzdelic was fired. Tad proved himself and it turned out great for everyone. MacIntyre appears to have many of the same qualities that Tad has.

    I'm going to listen to kthom. I'd say that they're a more reliable source than Ringo.

    I also agree with not letting kids out of their schollies. It seems extreme, but in some cases it's probably for the kids' own good. Why kill an entire year of eligibility out of anger/fear? At least know what you're getting into/out of before making such a drastic decision.

    I wonder how many young men have had miserable freshmen years and wanted to leave but stayed and gone on to have a great experience. Hell, it isn't just athletes. Many kids want to give up during the first year.

    Alec was not set on leaving - he just said he did not know what he was going to do. It is also a news flash that Bzdelic was fired....I wonder why we were demanded his $500,000 buyout be paid (which it never was) if he was fired.

    He was considering leaving. I should not have said "set on."

    I'm having a bad morning. I said "fired." Of course he left for another job and was nor fired. My bad again. I have a hard time on an iPad getting my thoughts right since it takes me so long to type something.

    My point remains that Tad needed to sell himself and he did. OK?
