Exactly.....go ride the pine as the 9th man on an NIT team somewhere where the Gatorade is free, the team has a "Wheels Up" subscription and a sweet Nike contract.

Sounds fun.....

A lot of bitter old men said that about Paschal too and we know how that worked out. Stop with the ignorance.

Grad students should not get athletic scholarships and should not play on varsity teams.  If a kid wants to finish early that's fine but he should leave the scholarship and his hoops career behind.  Grad schools should be protected from the creeping corruption from athletics programs.

Don't discourage kids from working hard and getting a degree, or the schools that facilitate them.  Penalize the schools that cherry pick.  If a school wants to sign a grad transfer, they should commit to a two-year scholarship that counts against their limit even though the player has one year of eligibility remaining.

If schools are going to recruit and sign one and dones, they should be charged a scholarship for the next four years regardless of whether the player leaves early for the NBA or attends school in the league's off season.  It would make the KY's of the world think twice about their current business plans.

He is 23 and actions have consequences,loyalty matters.  You want to tap into the Fordham alumni network then you had better not have bailed on the school.  Best learn that or you will get run over in this world.  Think long term not short. 

Rich:

CS will probably return to Germany having played basketball in Amerika and maybe earning two degrees.  He'll be a hero. He won't need the Fordham network, as much as it exists in Germany.

I do not like it either and my kid is depressed. But dems da rules.

Count me out. I am not a fan of these moves and how easily they are made these days.

To clarify, I do not wish him ill will, but I am not going to congratulate him either.

Confining my comments to this strictly in a policy perspective, nothing personal against CS.

CS did what was asked of him for 3 years, represented the school well, managed a 4.0 GPA and will graduate early.  I get that some value loyalty, but he has one year of eligibility remaining.  I doubt he grew up dreaming of playing in the NCAA tournament, but it probably has caught his interest over the last few years.  Good luck to him.  I would welcome him as a Fordham alum after he leaves.

We lost JS to grad transfer last year and brought in JH as a grad transfer this yea.  No one criticized the players for those moves.  I find the comments about CS hypocritical.  If you are going to recruit grad transfers, you need to be prepared to lose grad transfers.  For every player who leaves, there should be two or more guys busting their butts to get a foot in the door and take that vacant spot in the starting lineup.  JN can use that to his advantage when recruiting.

CS, a 20-21 year old (pretty sure he was 17 at the start of his freshman year) is not the problem.  The state of NCAA basketball and the job world has changed dramatically since many of us were young.  The elite majors have coaches who  are paid more than some CEOs, facilities that cost more than the GNP of small countries, and "one and dones" who have been pampered and cajoled since they were in middle school.  In the real world, younger employees change jobs every few years to get ahead, the mantra of executives is what have you done for me lately, and no one's job is safe.  I may not like it, but times are changing.  Technology and the desire for immediate answers and gratification may have something to do with this new order.  I'd like to think I have the wisdom to see I cannot change the current state, and that I have the serenity to accept it.  I don't like it, but I accept it.

No recruits, coming off a losing season and losing a key player...  But we'll have a winning season.   So we'll be the only team that improves and everyone else will take a step or two backward.

That works. 

There will be recruits.  Until they are announced we won't know how good they may be.  CS's loss hurts because of his 3 years of experience with the team, a more valuable commodity in many ways than his replaceable scoring, which can't be replaced with a recruit unless he is a transfer with similar experience. We've lacked senior leadership for years and getting to where we have it has been elusive.

If we return our entire roster with no recruits that should be a winning team, not 20 wins but winning team.  That winning season could help with recruiting down the line.  It makes no sense to me to show CS the door.

We'll see.  I don't know what "style" you're referring to but recruiting  hasn't been anything to right home about so far.  If RB is right, why would Neubauer have moved him out?  To make room for the incoming class?  Doubtful.
