I don’t know TL or any of his friends or family. Everything I say that follows is based on what I’ve seen from basketball players in the past 10-15 years.

I said three weeks ago if TL continues to see <10 mpg, he would leave. McD’s AA’s don’t go to NCSU to ride the pine. That’s not an indictment on the coach or the player, but more on the people who are in the player’s ear. Players need someone (or multiple people) around them to keep them grounded. At some point, Dad, Mom, Brother, Uncle, someone needs to kick the boy in the pant’s seat.

With proper work ethic, TL could be a very serviceable PG as a jr/sr.

Generally I don’t have a problem with transfers, in fact I hate that transfers have to sit out a year when there is a coaching change. Sometimes it just doesn’t work out how either party had planned and it’s ok to move on.

Oh, and I hope our speculation on TL’s transfer is completely unfounded and he doesn’t transfer, but I do think it’s ok to discuss the possibility.
