Pitt was terrible this year

And now it looks like almost the entire remaining roster wants to transfer after the AD fired Kevin Stallings. Eight of them have asked for releases, and the one remaining recruit also wants out.

A cynic would suggest that cleaning house after 0-18 in the ACC is a good thing to do. And he might even be right. But going into next year with one guy who played decent minutes this year (the leading scorer is staying) is a recipe for going 0-18 again.

It says they’re expected to receive it. I thought a school could block a transfer, or a bunch of transfers, at least until the new coach and those players talk.

As I read it, those players are being given the option to explore transfer possibilities. I’m sure the new coach, whoever it is, will try to re-recruit them once he is on board.

Speaking of new coach, saw that Georgia hired Tom Crean. Good hire IMO. A very good league just got a little better.

Don’t disagree about Crean at all.
