You Sir, are NUTS! This team will barely make the tournament this year, if at all. They have beaten NOBODY of significance. Have you seen U of Michigan lately?

I sure hope one of these "reporters" makes some effort to go after the cause of all these transfers. Is it simply playing time? Is it chemistry? Is it the coach's religious dedication as noted by the comment of "Rob?"

Perhaps the reason is that they see more talented people on the team, and are going someplace that has less talent. That sort of puts a silver lining on all of this.

Could academics (grades) be the cause?

If this guy was any good he would have started from Day 1. Just call Coach K or Roy down on Tobacco Road!

I find all the negative comments about this young man rather interesting, not to mention extremely myopic. People are content to lambaste a 19- or 20-year old kid for imagined and unsubstantiated failings on his part, rather than demanding that the UVA sports beat writers put a little more rigor into their reportage.

Nelly of Charlottesville is absolutely spot on in her hope that "one of these 'reporters' makes some effort to go after the cause of all these transfers." Truer words were never spoken! Figure the odds folks; one scholarship player departing the pattern is not unusual; two taking their skill sets elsewhere is an item of concern; but when four of six (thus far) from the same recruiting class have seemingly run screaming for the exits, not into the waiting arms of the NBA, but into those of another Division I program, there are clearly some unseen but voracious termites eating away at the carefully crafted facade of that team, and they aren't, as some here would suggest, character flaws in these young men. This is clearly a case of "physician; heal thyself!"

All things considered one would have to look from the top down. Me thinks Va needs to take a serious look at their athletics director. But that won't happen for obvious reasons.
