    Not that anyone wants the subject brought up, but his question at Hoiberg's NU press conference was typical embarrassing Randy, if you know what I mean. Fred's facial expression and response after he asked it was priceless. Has CMC learned to avoid him at all costs yet? lol

    Literally never listened to someone more clueless about sports than RP and Birch..The last thing LW would do is transfer and redshirt...dude would be 24 at a minimum when he went pro..Aside from that it is so painful listening to RP try to put together words on that podcast without getting completely distracted with slipping in something about one of the Hoibergs..

    The DMR is sending that tool to Lincoln to bother Fred?

    Wigginton doesn't want to wait 2 years to try the draft again.

    Ok, I'll not be able to quote exactly, but it was very early in the press conference and he brings up something like "how do you respond to ISU fans who are kinda bewildered right now?" Sure, I could see him asking him that off to the side later for his own fan base he reports for, but thought it was out of place at the beginning of another university's PC. I bet NU fans were like eating it up.

    To be fair, he said someone told him that might be a path he'd take.

    If Lindell transferred he is not sitting out a year to play for Nebraska. It’ll be Duke/Kentucky type.

    Have no clue if any of this is worth putting speculation on in the first place, but since posters on here brought it up.....would it be off-base to assume that 'if' he did opt for a transfer, then he left with hard feelings over last season's usage OR more just wanting to find a coach who would 'guarantee' him the starting PG spot for NBA aspirations?? Hopefully neither are the case and its all much to do about nothing.

    Either way, not a big deal, just a little Randy chatter.

    If the feelings are hard enough, so be it, but they would have to be pretty hard to push the guy into making some really sub-optimal decisions regarding his professional future like that.

    Does he really want to put TWO MORE YEARS on the clock until he can receive a paycheck for playing basketball? He was born in March 1998. If he waits to what would be his RS-junior season to go pro, he would be doing so at age 23 when he leaves.

    If he wants a place where he is guaranteed a starting spot and to be the focus of the offense in a major conference, well, Iowa State is sitting there waiting for him at the moment.

    It's too bad that Randy can't do some real work and try to find out if LW is leaning G League or Europe, instead of throwing out the transfer speculation. Same goes for high energy Tommy.

    I don’t know what his goals are. If his goal is to be the first Nova Scotian to play in the NBA, a change of scenery and a year off may do him good.

    In most timelines, he is best off financially by making what he can playing basketball at a young age, but I would guess there are NBA teams that think he has a chance at a career because he can really shoot the ball paired with good athletic ability.

    I do not think he is going to run into a roster more custom-made to feature him than ours is next year. We have good complementary guards in Haliburton and Nixon who will feed him and play defense for him, a good (and perhaps not great, leaving it to him to lead with the scoring) selection of big men, and not a lot proven behind him to reduce his minutes. If he really is just done with Prohm and wants to go elsewhere, then so be it, but I do not think he is going to run into a situation with a better design to feature him than what we have.

    I think Prohm probably had Talen in mind for that niche next year before he turned out to be better (or, at least, more attractive in the draft) than we thought he would be after one season. Wigginton would slide right into it, though, and put up 20+ a night while doing it.

    I agree, and think Lindell would be a good fit next to Haliburton and Nixon on defense in addition to offense. Lindell plays big for his size and is a great rebounder.

    I think there's a little bit trolling, only because I'm 100% certain he reads this board. Not that I should be giving him enough credit to recognize how dumb some of his questions are.

    Musselman is picking right up where he left off at Nevada with transfers.
