|14 hours 23 min ago||Except that we do know what his family has been saying||
They've been telling him to transfer for years. His sister tweeted about it, Jon said it himself and now his brother is weighing in. I frankly wish we never heard from any of them as they sound like scorned lovers
|1 day 3 hours ago||I hope not||
We are in on some studs in 2015 and taking both would leave is unbalanced class wise and in terms of having too many similar type players.
My choices in order of preference would be Shayok > Dawkins > MAAR.
Hopefully we get the one that fits the program the best
|1 day 3 hours ago||Dawkins >>> MAAR||
Dawkins seems like the better athlete with more upside and potentially a better fit.
|2 days 45 min ago||I was wondering the same||
Maybe he just wants to leave the nest?
|2 days 17 hours ago||Well that makes me wonder why||
Not just announce he is coming back then? Maybe he is truly torn on what to do? Or maybe he is still assessing whether his back will be good enough to show well in predraft camps?
|2 days 18 hours ago||So what is next for McGary before the draft deadline?||
Is he allowed to workout for teams or play in any predraft camps? What happens between and April 27th?
|2 days 22 hours ago||I've thought all along that Mitch was the most important||
potential returnee for next year's success so it is great we still have hope there. I'm trying not to get too excited in case Mitch goes too, but with a healthy Mitch we are firmly in contention for another B1G title. Without Mitch it will be a struggle to beat the better teams in the conference.
|3 days 3 hours ago||Weird that he would not be going to Stanford||
unless he just wants to get away from his dad for a bit.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Sigh||
I knew this was coming. 2013 was so bad that fans will accept any level of improvement no matter how incrimental and we are already looking forward to 2015.
People will be more than happy with 8-4 and it all makes me want to scream.
|3 days 17 hours ago||You expect to win the B1G by 3 games and go to the Elite 8||
Without Nik Mitch and Glenn? I'll have what ur smoking
|3 days 18 hours ago||If all 3 go||
We are middle of the pack in the B1G and a buble team. Our ceiling is prob the Sweet 16. We are going to get destroyed down low
|3 days 18 hours ago||Hmmmm. Lots of unknowns for 2015 and late 2014 guys||
I was hoping our on court success would have lead to more 2015 recruiting success, but nothing so far.
Lets hope JB and the staff can win some recruiting battles in the next few months. They've done great so far, but recruiting is a what have you done for me lately business and any lull can hurt the program for multiple years.
|4 days 3 hours ago||If "ifs and buts were candy and nuts..."||
we can play the what-off game all day long, but the facts are that Hoke is 1-2 against Staee, 1-2 against Ohio, 1-2 in Bowl Games, has 2 straight seasons of 5 losses or more and our 2 biggest rivals have been kicking our ass for years, with no sign of slowing down. We haven't won the B1G in 10 years and for most of that time its been a pretty shitty conference outside Sparty and Ohio.
If you don't think the negativity is warranted then you might need to take off the maize colored glasses.
|5 days 2 hours ago||Unfortunately I have to agree||
I don't see us winning any of the rivalry road games and we are probably good for at least one random loss that should have been a win. What would really suck about that is some people would be happy with 8-4 because it was an "improvement" over prior years.
|5 days 2 hours ago||Can we also shake our heads at the people who thought||
He should be a TE too? Because he hasn't done very well at that position either.
|6 days 18 hours ago||While both reports might not be true at the moment||
I would not be surprised if both reports proved true in a week or so
|1 week 3 hours ago||Max transferring would not shock me||
He has been buried on the depth chart since he got here and that likely wasn't going to change much. He just wasn't big or skilled enough to play big minutes here.
Horford on the other hand, has played big minutes and was going to get even more minutes next year so I really don't get that one. Methinks there are too many people whispering in his ear.
|1 week 14 hours ago||And it is totally debunked||
By what his sister and trainer had to say.
|1 week 15 hours ago||Pretty doubtful given||
That McGary would have been healthy at that point and Horford's playing prospects would have been less than they actually turned out.
|1 week 15 hours ago||If that were the case then||
His sister and trainer wouldn't have been bitching about playing time and the hardships he endured.
|1 week 16 hours ago||Criticism?!?||
From whom? If he thinks that any other major fanbase or coaching staff will be less critical then he is clueless.
|1 week 16 hours ago||Based on what his sister and trainer have been saying||
I think you may be right. I think the whole Horford is zen meme is way off. If what his sister and trainer are saying is true then he is Just another me-first hoops player with an unrealistic view of his abilities
|1 week 16 hours ago||NBA aspirations?||
He is pretty out of touch with reality then. Not going to happen
|1 week 16 hours ago||No it can't just be a private decision||
Not when he publically declared he was coming back only a few weeks ago. And not when his sister and trainer are publicly complaining about playing time.
I'm starting to think we are better off without him.
|1 week 17 hours ago||Give me a break!||
Jon got the playing time he deserved. I've lost a lot of respect for Jon. Thought he was better than that to be listening to the hangers-on whispering in his ears about how he should be playing more and showcasing his skills.
He has zero chance of making a major impact at anywhere beyond a mid major program.
|1 week 17 hours ago||Well then he is just another kid with an over inflated sense||
Of his abilities. No objective observer would say that Horford wasn't given all of the opportunity here he deserved.
If this is really just because he is upset about not getting more playing time here then I think we need to retire the philosopher meme and replace it with the typical me-first agenda and requisite handlers/uncles advising him meme.
Pretty disappointing if that is the case
|1 week 18 hours ago||Well he would've gotten more playing time here next year||
No matter who returns. And if he thinks he will get a lot more time at another major program or thought that he should have gotten more time at Michigan this year then he doesn't have a very realistic view of his abilities.
|1 week 19 hours ago||If Horford is letting his "trainer" make decisions for him||
then I have lost all respect for Horford.
|1 week 21 hours ago||The only positive thought I have is that Horford knows||
that McGary is likely coming back and so he may not start. Otherwise he was sure to start and even with McGary there he would have logged heavy minutes. Very strange.
|1 week 1 day ago||What I don't understand is why there are never names||
attached to these stories or rumors? I understand reporters wanting to protect their sources, but anyone involved in recruting hears these stories and yet nothing ever comes of it. Why are people so afraid to expose this crap?
