Imagine the hype on here if Umass was getting a freshmen transfer who put up the numbers of East.
We were hyped for Derrick Gordon, myself included. We overlooked some red flags that were there his freshman year at WKU, particularly his shooting percentages.

Who has said that Fernandes is going to dominate the A10?

I don't even think they were that harsh. He clearly had some growing pains in the middle of the season like you'd expect any Freshman that's not a 5-star recruit to have. And this is coming from someone who really liked his game and is bummed he's no longer here.

I don’t think anyone was particularly hard on East.

If East was able to get his waiver this quickly, you would think that we would hear about Fernandes very soon. However, we know that the NCAA doesn't work that way.

If the school you are leaving is backing your waiver request you are more likely to both get it and hear quickly.

^ Isn't Gregg Marshall pretty well known as a strong backer of his kids that decide to transfer out? Should be good for Noah.

It might be different in Sean's case, where the coaches wanted him to leave, and Noah's, where he was part of a dysfunctional player situation where a bunch of guys fled. Then there's this, a definite non-denial if I ever saw one.
Marshall has also seen the Twitter rumors that he is on the brink of accepting a head coaching job elsewhere, which is why the players are leaving.
“If I was leaving, I wouldn’t be grinding on these recruiting calls 24 hours a day,” Marshall said from in his home in east Wichita, which has become the de facto program headquarters with assistants watching film and calling recruits at all hours of the day. “We’re working hard to get our roster back. And I love the nucleus that we have coming back, I really do.”

Marshall is putting a lot of blame on the players here, several quotes I found interesting below:

“Of course you don’t want to see that many guys leave at once, but you also don’t want to see that many guys stay that are unhappy with their role,” Marshall said. “You’re saying those guys played 24 minutes a game, but what I’m telling you is that’s not enough. They weren’t pleased with that. My job is to try to win and their job is to try to play as much as they can.”

“I didn’t do a very good job of managing the personalities. We basically had 13 starters. We had a lot of really, really good players. But you can’t play that many, so no one was happy.”

“I’ll put it this way, in college basketball it seems now that you not only have to recruit new players but you have to recruit your own team every day,” Marshall said. “And that’s not going to change. It’s only going to get worse.”

Ha, what a cry baby. My team is too talented, wah wah. A lot of coaches out there wish they had that problem. At least he admits he didn't do a very good job managing the personalities.

I've always been more of the mindset that you recruit a team and not just talent, i.e. don't just recruit the most talented players, recruit the guys that fit roles and your system. I know that also has drawbacks because of all the transferring going on, but you need role players, glue guys, etc. He's had a really good track record so who am I to argue, but those quotes come off as a bit whiny.

Sounds like a joy to be around. Love me a coach who sweet talks players into coming to his school, then once they're there complains that he might have to actually make them want to stay. I bet he'll really thrive when immediate eligibility for transfers passes.
