Hoops HD July Session: News & Notes, Coaching Changes, and Transfer Banter

Joby hosts this month’s offseason session and is joined by regulars David, John and Chad (sort of).  They begin with hitting the news and notes from the past few summer weeks, including Fred Hoiberg’s departure from Iowa State, Shaka Smart’s move to Texas, and Rick Barnes’s move to Tennessee.

The main topic of the evening is the transfer rules, and how the panel basically feels it is unfair that so much is working against the players.  They discuss what changes they think they should be made, and how coaches having less control over the players would actually lower the transfer rate rather than raise it.

The final topic that’s discussed is the removal of the Confederate Battle Flag from South Carolina’s state house, and how doing so now allows the state of South Carolina to host men’s NCAA Basketball Tournament games.


And for you radio lovers out there, below is an mp3 version of the show….

    I believe the only sports that require you to sit out a year when transferring are football, men’s basketball, women’s basketball, men’s hockey and baseball.

  • That’s correct. Thanks.
