    Sure kids are told that they arenít gonna play anymore and end up transferring . Iíve just never seen it as cut throat as your post could have implied. At the end of the day itís a contract, I would encourage all kids to read them thoroughly.

    I heard a story of a new hoops coach that came in and only kept one kid on the existing roster. @4pointplay?

    After my sons redshirt year at SVSU there was a coaching change in May. New coach kept existing roster for first year. They had 4 senior starters and my son as a redshirt frosh.

    After they went 13-14 in that year coach basically cleaned house. Take out the graduating seniors and he basically told 7 players not good enough to play here and scholarships would not be renewed. Only returned two players one of whom was a walk on and the other being my son.

    I know when I played football, there was almost always 2-4 that did not get renewed.

    As it turned out it was a bad news/good news situation. Tough at first when players he had been on campus with and forged relationships for two years were basically shown the door.

    Good news as the next class that coach recruited formed the nucleus of the team that won the conference championship and advanced to the Elite 8 in the NCAA tourney.
