Must have it for sure. If this is a championship team you don't lose these games at home. I'm bringing water balloons just in case the chucker decides to make the trip.

UVM has 83% chance of a win according to Team Rankings. With QU and CofC coming up this needs to be a win.

Keep focused: defense, rebounding, take care of the ball, keep moving for a good shot.

Correct- though I do think he could technically go, but just can't travel with team and sit on the team bench.

So given that, zero chance :)

Besides , Burlington is far too difficult to get to. I don't even know how the rest of the Towson team is managing to get there.

Don't really understand this comment, and why others don't wish the transfers well we've had over the years well.

I personally think the kid sold himself short by choosing Towson given his available options to transfer, but I sincerely hope he's personally successful at Towson.

I think we all wish kids well who transfer, unless they do so in a manner that has an unnecessarily negative impact on the team they've left. There are ways to do this sort of thing properly.

Four waited until very late (June) to ask for his release. I mean, good luck to him, but he doesn't get a pass on this one from me. Having said that, he's gone, I don't really care now.

I guess I would like to stomp Towson, though, and demonstrate that we are now more than fine, thank you.

You can take the high road, you can take the low road. You can call Four McGlynn whatever you want...as long as you remember to add "America East champion" on the end of it.

Yeah, I am certainly not looking to see Towson do well as a team at all- agree that the transfer was late and put us in a tough situation, but I think we've been put in tough positions previously and always bounce back.

Plus- these are kids and many times being influenced by parents, coaches, etc- so ultimately the decisions that are made are not entirely up to them.

I wouldn't have a problem with Four if he wanted out and asked for his release after the season, but he put the team and our coaching staff in a very difficult position.

Have fun at Towson, I'm sure your dad is happy. Where is pops these days? He used to contribute a lot on this board. ;)

vtbballfan disappeared right before Four transferred. I even tried to bait him out but no bite!

There is this thing called loyalty and some people actually still believe in it today.

You can say he is doing what's best for him yada yada. He made a lateral move and is a traitor. He made a very low character move when he waited until he was away from his teammates before saying he was transferring. This is not a good guy. Root for him if you want but I have no interest it. He's not a person I would want anything to do with.

People like Lonergan and Jake O'brien made reasonable moves for themselves. I would have no ill feelings towards these individuals. I could understand transfering because of a new coach, a legit family member being sick. There are legit reasons. I think Four's reason is because he got paid or he is really selfish.

I almost feel bad for the kid. Everything I've heard is that Dad was overly involved and most likely made the decision for him. If true, that's just a sad commentary on where we are as a society today. College should be a time when you finally get a chance to make some decisions for yourself and get some breathing room from your folks. Four's situation is not unique..helicopter parents are an epidemic in America.

He would be playing ball this winter on a solid team with players that would get him the ball in good spots and have a chance to do some serious damage in the AE. Instead he's sitting out for a season for a team that has no proven track record. The only upgrade for Four in this situation is the gym. What bothers me, in addition to the way he left, was the article in his hometown's local paper where his father played it off like it was all Four's decision. He was quoted as saying something like "I really thought he'd stay up there...he seemed to really like it." That's just B.S.

Lol, uvm4life....I agreed with your above comment 100% until I got to "I think Four's reason is he got paid or he is really selfish"

Umm, I really don't think he got paid and not really sure where that came from. No he isn't loyal and he could have handled things in a much better way, but he didn't. I like Lonergan, I don't care for Four. He is a good scorer and was a joy to watch on the court. I also know he said some questionable things off the court regarding UVM and there fans off the court. (I'm not going into details on this, but myself and some people very close to the program witnissed this as well.) Who knows why he left and why he chose to do it in the way that he did, but I'm telling you his father was the biggest factor in this move IMO.

In this day and age soo many kids are transfering in and out it is totally out of control. I don't wish anything bad on Four and I don't want him to fail, I simply have ZERO respect for him. (still a helluva ball player)

We're doing just fine without him. 4-2 baby

Ya, CofC could hardly get the ball over half court. I shut it off at half time, but they were just awful. Missed opportunity for CofC, it's not everyday you get the #5 team in the country to come to your place.

Louisville is a deep, well built experienced team. If they do not make Final Four at minimum I'll be surprised. CofC is a solid mid- major team and they just steamrolled over them.
