I hope he gets his mental health issues straightened out. Beyond that, both he and Luther are now a part of Programs where they may become stars but experience little team success! Don't think that matters to either!?

I REALLY enjoyed this article...3 good choices! Burson, although he looked like a 12-yr-old kid, continually outplayed "stars" of that era! Would have liked to have seen them play in the NCAA tournament...never won a game without him! Campbell was a stud! Darby led his mediocre to Big 10 Championship game! Gary Bradds has never been recognized for his greatness and his place in Buckeye basketball history! He had the misfortune of following the Great Jerry Lucas and was not a great pro! I would also like to see something about Bill Hosket...led his team to the final four and a victory over Houston and Elvin Hays in the consolation game!? BTW, what happened to Brent Darby??

WOW!!?? LOOK at ALL the "TALENT" we lost through these transfers!!?? How can you still be saying it's a coaching problem when you look at what these kids have done since they left?? Apparently, the coaches at their new schools are idiots, too?? Holtmann is still very early in the process of building the program...I think he's a possible Hall-of-Famer when all is said and done!

Like many of the so-called 4-5 star players, they have been told all of their lives how great they are...a huge sense of entitlement! It happens everywhere...Duke and Kentucky have new "teams" every year...EVERYONE wants instant success and stardom! They seem to have an attitude that "I'll take my ball and go home" if they don't get what they want?! Also, consider this...some of the greatest players of all-time actually played 4 years in college...especially bigs! Patrick Ewing, Tim Duncan, David Robinson, Jerry Lucas and....Kaleb Wesson thinks (or has been told by outside influences) that he is an NBA player!? REALLY????

If he chooses to stay on this path, I wish him well...but he is not an NBA player! Inconsistent motor and lack of big time athletic ability send him overseas. Very frustrating to see him play like a marshmallow at times against other good bigs! GO BUCKS!! I'm not sweating his decision.

With all of the other "expert" opinions being posted, I thought I might as well add my "expert" opinion!? Remember back in January when we were wondering what happened to our team after the exciting, high-level performance start! Could it possibly be that Carton was at the root of the issues...we did finish 9-2 after he was gone? Did anyone else notice this young player straying away from the team concept...unforced turnovers and poor shot selection...as he was trying to do everything himself (as he probably did in HS)?  On a pure talent level, this is a loss, but there is such a thing as addition through subtraction.  I wish this kid well as he explores other options...so long as it does affect us! GO BUCKS!!

Why Is our best shooter and 2nd leading scorer playing only 8 minutes against Indiana?? Doghouse? His defense isn't so bad that he can't outscore what he's giving up? Anyway, our defense hasn't been good enough to make up for our inept offense! Carton certainly has an upside, but right now he's an out-of-control turnover machine! I have confidence that we can turn the ship around, but really need to show some mental toughness!!
