Who canceled -- OU or Cunningham?

Hearing overtures from DePaul, Missouri and Florida State,

* hearing overtures does not mean he had offers...they were interested.

Again, I'll wait and see...I remember last year all they hype after getting TY..yeah the team "improved" but was far from very good at the end.

Maybe not have a superstar on the team will allow everyone to be equal in their own eyes.
The team went from 20 losses to the tournament. It was dramatically improved.

Fast forward to the day mcgusty got his release. Ou had no PG, no mcgusty, and the future was bleak to say the least. Landing 2 solid guards with 3 years of D1 experience was a flat out coup this late on the game. We may not make the tournament but we won’t be losing 20+ games either which is what we were headed for prior to these grad transfers.

This is how I see it. I think OU will be a bubble team.

I agree...I was just getting the feeling some folks thought this is some huge deal. Good, yes...GREAT...I'll reserve judgement until the season unfolds.

Bubble team going into the B12 tourney would be a little above my expectations but good.

It's a big deal, given our recent departures. I don't think anyone's getting ahead of themselves or proclaiming the grad transfers to be superstars, but I'm eager to see our new additions (including Bienemy and Kuath) in action.

I think many more posters have summarily (and prematurely, in my view) dismissed the players we have coming in than have oversold them. We've been assured by certain experts that they'll all (with the possible exception of Bienemy) suck, basically.

Given that half the 2018-19 roster will be seniors, I would like to see a "regular" inbound D1 transfer to take the last scholarship ... the best player available at any position that would have to sit out and redshirt during the 2018-19 season. That could be a way to add some talented experience to the 2019-20 team.

That's another smart idea. We will have way too many schollies next year and need more balance. Now Is the time to get a regular transfer.

Next year as well. Add grad transfers and normal transfers

I agree. I think that the best ones have already committed but there probably are 1 or 2 out there who haven't yet. The opportunity to step in when 6 players leave at the end of the season should be enticing to a pretty good player. Someone like Matthew Moyer from Syracuse would be a really good get, IMO.

I can't think of a reason not to take another transfer, graduate or otherwise, in this class.

Graduate guys want time on the court.

I’d like to take a sit 1 play 2 guy if he can truly help. Tha makes most sense to me but staff did a great job getting 2 this year.

I like having 1 scholarship in our hip pocket. Something might open up this summer. Someone decides to transfer and we’re in the right place at the right time. Otherwise we can use it next season when we have a better idea of what our needs are. We played this year with only 12 on scholarship.

None of the walk-ons will be seniors next season and I don't see the wisdom in tying up a scholarship in a guy that won't play at all for two seasons.

We already have enough of those on the roster.
