    Tyrone Appleton to Transfer

    Tyrone Appleton has asked for a transfer from KU along with Quintrell Thomas.

    Two KU basketball players request transfers - Kansas City Star


    Coach Self just needs to learn how to recruit players that will stick with what they've started.

    NO! Iowa State is the only school that loses players! It's all GMacs fault!

    Self is making room for stars. KU's version of Clayton Mann and Wes Elkmeier.

    Re: Tyrone Appleton to Transfer

    Self is just bad at evaluating talent... he shoulda known that Appleton is just not cut out for Kansas. I can see people getting upset if his players continue to transfer like that... he may be out of a job soon.

    Re: Tyrone Appleton to Transfer

    What a complete idiot. That kid got some bad advice along the way. Did he HONESTLY think he was going to go into Kansas and play right away? I mean, really?

    He could have come to ISU and either started or been a solid contributor. Now he's going to go to a D2 school and have 1 year left, unless he can still redshirt a year...


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I get your "joke" but if you are trying to equate Kansas' situation and ISU's, you really need to lay off the sauce.

    I'd equate the situation with Ours with Wes E and Mann. Transferring for more playing time because there are better guys coming in that he thinks will beat him out for PT.

    That being said... I don't think they are the same talent level as Appleton... but the situation is the same... and I'd say it's a better situation to have guys leave because the team is too talented for them to get PT than for our high end talent to transfer to be on a better team.

    Re: Tyrone Appleton to Transfer

    Self is having to make room for Collins to Aldrich to return since Aldrich has already said hes staying and Sherron's stock dropped like a rock in the post season.



    “One day we’ll be in here celebrating a Big 12 championship,” Rhoads said. “That I can promise you.”

    "I hope to coach here until I retire," Hoiberg said.

    ISU loses stars like Wesly Johnson, KU loses bench players.

    All I mean is that Self wins. He has a national title, lost most of his players off that team and still made it to the sweet 16 this year, winning the regular season Big 12. If his players transfer it's because they weren't going to play, ever. McDermott has done nothing in 3 years at Iowa State and has a revolving door of players as bad as it gets. Kansas can afford to lose players to transfers because they just bring in 3 or 4 more McD AAs every year. McDermott loses average players and brings in average players to replace them. Fans have every right to question if McDermott is earning his money. Self has already earned his.
