    Yessir mass exodus from OU. Just shows Kruger's impact on the program. Under rated by many, me included.

    Right now looking like Manek can start at PF. UNC had 2 PF transfer away and 2 Big Men declare for the draft. If he gets replaced by Freshman, should at least be the 6th man and see plenty of minutes.

    the Groves brothers, Tanner and Jake, are reportedly transferring to Oklahoma after their Tourney run with EWU. looks like i might need to go watch some Sooners basketball this coming season ...

    Indeed, very good move. The new Oklahoma coach is going to build white roster that destroy the HBC Big 12

    Iowa shooting guard, and stellar defender, CJ Fredrick has entered the transfer portal. from the outside this seems a strange move, as Fredrick was a highly respected starter who would’ve likely been looked to become more of a scorer, now that fellow starters Garza and Bohannon have graduated.

    this makes at least 4 Whitehawks who won’t be returning to the team next year (Nunge transferred closer to his home, which makes sense due to non-basketball reasons with the passing of his father), with Weiskamp’s decision still pending. he has entered his name into the NBA draft, though i think it’s just so he can get evaluated before returning to work on improving his game.

    the only starter certain to return is the elder McCaffrey. what’s going on with Iowa?

    Wondering the same thing! Wieskamp should return and dominate. McCaffrey is a solid glue guy that needs to put it all together. We'll have to keep an eye on the transfer market as they'll likely need help.

    i agree. Nunge would’ve slotted right into their starting lineup. he’s long, pretty bouncy, can move his feet well despite all his injuries, and has good timing as a shot blocker to go along with a bit of nasty to him on the defensive end; offensively, he’s a stretch big who can run the floor and finish above the rim, though his outside shot is far too inconsistent. i like his game a LOT, and his departure leaves a BIG hole to fill.

    at most, two starters return, though Keegan Murray should step into one forward spot nicely. he played a ton of minutes as a freshman, and i think he’s an excellent player. fellow freshman-turned-sophomore Patrick McCaffrey will likely slide into another starting spot, and he brings dynamic athleticism to the wing as well as length and playmaking ability as a passer. he’s an above average defender, but his outside shot is busted and he’s weak as a 3-day-old kitten. he needs to spend every day in the gym this offseason hitting the weights (so he can finish in traffic with a dunk instead of missing layups like he did so often this year) and hitting jumpers from deep (so he can finish on the perimeter instead of being left unguarded because he can’t shoot a lick).

    but even if those two cats are inserted, that leaves a gaping hole in the post, and there’s no one currently on the roster who can fill it, in my opinion.

    Just as I expected, Will Ryan is cleaning up UW Green Bay Basketball! They will be transitioning from a small ball, guard centric lineup. To the classic Bo Ryan swing offense. Most of the affletes leftover from previous regime entered the transfer pool. Leaving Ryan with some flexibility to rebuild this team to his liking. He's already landed 3 Wisconsin kids and 1 transfer from Belmont in Mitch Listau.( 3 of 4 gym rats)

    Ryan is also rumored to be after Valpo's Jacob Ognacevic a 6'8 stretch 4 that shot 50% from 3 off the bench last year. He was a local standout in Sheboygan that got away.

    Nice to see Ryan bring some common sense to the helm. UW Green Bay has seen a 50% decrease in attendance over last 5-7 years. Not good, it was time for a change from the guard centric ghetto ball.

    Great news. They will be a team actually worth watching. Why can't more teams try something different. So many teams struggle year after year but never seem to change their recruiting tactics? To be fair all
    teams should at least have a good mix but they don't see it that way.

    Thanks for posting! I'll have to keep an eye out for ol' UWGB.

    Here's a quick Big 10 offseason breakdown as it stands, which I've parsed from normie site MGoBlog here and here. You'll notice that more teams appear to be adding white players, but I think the conference on the whole will be hemorrhaging a lot of white star power. So, a net negative overall.

    A tinge whiter:
    At Illinois, Brad Underwood signed his first white athlete, 3 star SG Brandon Podziemski, who is a scoring dynamo. Perhaps more importantly, Kentucky is bidding on two of Underwood's lead recruiters. Orlando Antigua recruited several Caribbean players, and Chin Coleman specialized in the mercenary cesspool that is Chicago high school basketball. Should they depart, their replacements could not be any less white-friendly.

    Indiana will welcome wing Miller Kopp, a Northwestern transfer, and 4-star center Logan Duncomb. They also added assistant coach Dane Fife to the coaching staff from Michigan State, where he'd been the lead recruiter for many of their recent white players. Interesting hire by Mike Woodson - Fife is positioning himself to be the successor there.

    Minnesota has brought in William & Mary guard Luke Loewe and D2 wing Parker Fox via transfer. Nebraska has signed two freshman bigs and also a Japanese shooting guard via transfer. Ohio State will add transfer Joey Brunk from Indiana, with Kyle Young and Justin Ahrens both returning. Purdue signed 4* forward Caleb Furst, who was this year's Mr. Basketball in the state of Indiana.


    About the same:
    Northwestern loses Miller Kopp and adds one new white recruit, 3-star wing Brooks Barnhizer. Penn State loses backup wing Patrick Kelly (Fordham transfer) but retains starting center John Harrar for a super-senior year. No white players coming or going from Rutgers, but lots of other attrition there, so PG Paul Mulcahy could find himself carrying a much heavier load.

    Wisconsin loses center duo Nate Reuvers and Micah Potter as well as backups Trevor Anderson and Joe Hedstrom. They've brought in guard Isaac Lindsey from UNLV on transfer and signed Matthew Mors and Marcus Ilver, both 3-star forwards. Brad Davison returns for a bonus year and may become a focal point.


    Somewhat darker:
    Iowa loses a lot of experience but has two white recruits in their class, bigs Payton Sandfort and Riley Mulvey. Hopefully, Joe Weiskamp stays in school to play lead dog next season. Michigan returns Hunter Dickinson, but the only other white on the team will be freshman PF Will Tschetter. Michigan State will be down to just Joey Hauser, losing Thomas Kithier and Foster Loyer to the transfer portal.


    New Zealand rugby:
    Maryland will be completely non-white again.

    No problem guy's. They seem like a mid major with promise. I'll be going out of my way to catch their games next year. That's a pretty damn good outlook for The Big Ten next year besides The Baltimore Terrapins!!

    the Whitehawks may continue to be a CF favorite, as three White athletes have committed to play for them in the last few days.

    3-point gunner Jordan Bohannon announced he will return for a 6th year of collegiate basketball. i'm not a big fan of his game (i’d prefer him to come off the bench because of his very poor defense), but he has put up some eye-catching numbers over his career.

    as for new players, Iowa signed 6-9 stretch four Filip Rebraca from the transfer portal. he averaged better than 16ppg for North Dakota last season. he’s a graduate transfer with two years of eligibility remaining. he’s pretty long and has a nice midrange game, as well.

    they also signed a 6-11 center out of high school, Riley Mulvey. he looks to be a physical presence on the boards and defense but a work-in-progress offensively.

    Good news for Iowa. Rounds out their roster nicely.

    Yes I believe the Hawkeyes will continue to be one of our favorite teams in both basketball and football as they are fair at the level that more universities should be.

    Excited to see Gonzaga going forward with the number 1 high schoool kid in the country.

    Syracuse will be fun to watch as well as the U of A, Wisconsin and many other schools.

    Excellent 1st I've heard of this guy! Very interested to see where he ends up.. Like to see him end up in The Big Ten. If he stays out West: Creighton, St Mary's, BYU, even Arizona would be awesome to see. I'll throw in Oklahoma as well, would be cool to see him with the Groves Bros!

    This sucks Utah brought in a good coach, several diversity scholarship players transferred out already. He would have been best to stay put just like the kids transferring out of Oklahoma, Wisconsin and Iowa

    Pelle Larson would’ve been at least a 4-star recruit (and perhaps higher) if he were a black American. the kid is long and athletic. and he can REALLY shoot. it’ll be interesting to see where he lands.

    Pelle Larson, mentioned above, has transferred to Arizona. this is another good pick up for first year head coach (and longtime top assistant at Gonzaga) Tommy Lloyd. Arizona could emerge as a strong candidate for Caste Football fandom.

    This is some of the best news I've heard in a while. The University of Arizona could possibly have 3 white starters this fall. At the very least two with other guys supporting off the bench. I like this coaching hire already. Coach Tommy Lloyd will continue to
    be a great scout or European Talent! Hopefully with the U of A Wildcats success similar to Gonzaga it will inspire more NCAA Teams to take notice and recruit more White American and European Talent.

    I think the Wisconsin Badgers and the Iowa Hawkeyes are almost always two of the best teams to root for decade after decade in both college football and basketball. Great spot for Vogt to end up! :)
