Turgeon has announced that Graham is back with the team and will be dressed for their game against George Mason.

Into the transfer portal.

Can't blame him. He's been pretty unimpressive even in his limited play.

Apparently he was unhappy about his lack of playing time and clashed with Turgeon about it. That was why he missed time earlier this season, so no surprise he’ll be moving on.

No hard feelings.  Hope he has success wherever he lands.

One more scholarship for our new coach in 2022.

Good for Graham.  Get away from Turgeon.  We heard what a get he was and reportedly was a good shooter.  This team can not shoot and he does not even sniff the court.  Turgeon will not invest in players.

I think he played less than 30 minutes so I would not say he has been unimpressive, who knows what he could do.

Hard to have any thoughts on what he is.  Didn't play at all last year, and even with early enrollment last year - Turgeon wasn't ready to play him this year. 

All we know is that he was a well regarded recruit, and he lost a ton of weight going into this year to be more versatile. 

Disappointed we weren't able to get him involved.

Turg isnt afraid to play young guys. Gary was way more of a hold back young guys just to hold them back.  To an extent. Not saying Gary didnt play young guys but he def slow played them at times. To get absolutely no min is a reflection on Graham. It has to be.

Is Graham the least impactful 4 star in recent memory?

 

Hossan Fofana only other guy with that good of pedigree that washed out as quickly.  Roddy Peters left after a year but he was at least part of the rotation before bouncing.

Don’t agree, but we rarely do.  Some guys are just game players.  Turgeon does a very poor job on getting kids in position to help.

FTFY.

Man, it’s therapeutic to talk past tense about this.

I agree.  Turgeon historically had played freshmen frequently.  The fact that Graham was getting such little run for a team that sorely needed it is notable.

Weren't the Mitchell twins 4 star recruits?  Honestly that was the beginning of the end for Turgeon.  Though I'm not sure if the mistake was not to make them happy, or to recruit them at all in the first place.  I'm leaning toward the latter.

At issue: Mark Turgeon resignation news comes a couple days after he strongly urged Graham to transfer from the program.

 

That's a really big fragment of a story to report and just leave out there without any explanation.  I have so many questions.

I wonder if Mark's a guy who is just getting sick and tired of the new normal in college sports... Parents taking to social media to slam coaches, the annual musical chairs game known as the transfer portal, etc. Couple that with a growing wave of criticism on him specifically, maybe it's just a mental health break he needed and wanted to take now...
