Hoping for a Walter Offut type transformation for Jordan.

Good luck to Sibert.

I've been critical of Matta for his thin bench and not giving his younger players the game time to develop, but Sibert had a good many chances and simply wasn't delivering.

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

Not a shock.  Career 29-30% shooter and 25-26% from 3.  Didn't figure to play much behind Scott, Smith, Craft, Ross, and Thompson.

Exactly. He made the right move. Now we just have to hope he doesn't go shooting 40% in the A-10 a couple years down the road causing some folks to assume he would've done the same here.

As long as it's not 40% from the 3 point line.

It's still the A-10 but I'll take my chances. I don't see Sibert's ceiling being high enough to lose sleep over having his scholly freed up for Thad to make a run at someone else down the line.

Yep, might have been the 1st guard off the bench in 2013-2014 here if he was lucky.

This is a great move for Jordan. He'll be able to go in and compete immedately for big minutes (which couldn't be guaranteed in a crowded back court with the Bucks),  he'll be playing for Archie Miller and Kevin Kuwik (both off the Matta coaching tree), and the A10 is well-known for being a guard-dominant league. Best of luck to JS in his journey with the Flyers.

It'll be interesting to see what happens with Hood. I watched a few Miss St. games, and this kid has good length and can flat out stroke it. Actually in a lot of ways, his game is similiar to that of LqR but he's a better defender. Not sure if this would sway him away or not, but it's likely they would be competing for minutes. However, if he does come and Thad could find a way to get 2 6'8 guys who can handle and shoot on the floor together? Talk about a matchup nightmare!

...if this next year doesn't count as immediately.

Right, after sitting out 1 year.

Same with Hood should he transfer. That's the crazy thing with this year's team. Soooo young that all the guards should still be here in 2013-14.

Sibert's latest tweet:

Haha this is funny. But everyone I'm still at osu and I'm still getting better..don't believe everything you read...smh

They talked to Paul Keels (sp?) on 97.1 and he said this is not final. Sibert could stay as the tweet Alex posted might indicate. Jordans brother made a comment that any transfer decision at this time is purely speculation.

Ugghh.  Has this happened or not?
