Anything and everything that is UMass Minutemen Basketball.
There has been a lot of discussion here and on twitter about players transferring. Who do you think will be gone? Not "who do you want gone", but who do you realistically think will go.

I voted... but man this thread is depressing.
Stop waiting for UMass to do something big and help UMass do something big. - Shades
^ A better poll might be "How many BB STH will switch to Hockey season tickets next year?" I have to be honest. I have been a BB STH for a while, and have generally gone to 1 or 2 hockey games. I've gone to 7 hockey games this year and the thought of switching has crossed my mind.
I'll be back. Love my UMass hoops. Plus it'll be that much sweeter when they get to the top of the A10, and maybe my seats will be better too. Plus buying tix helps the program so you can't be disappointed if you're not helping to try to solve the issue.

The probability that a player will transfer is ~28%. (Post-Fr: ~7%, Post-So: ~13%, Post-Jr: ~12%)
But hold on, that sums to 32%, not 28%? That's because the probability that a player will transfer again, given that they've transferred once is ~15%.
Highest flight risk two-timer demographic? RS Jrs. About a third of players who transfer post-junior (grad-transfers, but not necessarily) are transferring for the second time in their college career.
That may not have any impact on the UMass situation, but it's something to chew on. Could any of the transfers leave? It's not unforeseeable. Some of them have been getting fewer minutes and minutes per game than they were at their old schools. They haven't had many wins to contribute to. And if they're not bought into to what McCall is selling, then.... ya know?

It looks like a lot of people think Hayward will leave, which I sort of get because he hasn't played much, but wouldn't he have to sit out another year and lose eligibility if he does? Unless he's on track to graduate. Any insight?
