    Do players redshirted after playing a year generally feel their careers here are over and need to find another school?

    Sorry to see him go. Always noticed when he entered the game! Only makes sense if he goes juco, otherwise he'll sit a year which is what we asked him to do.

    My guess is he was unhappy here for whatever reason.

    Some leave after taking a long hard look at incoming players.

    Parents have a big influence on kids transferring.

    still cant get over the fact that he went to check in at the scorers table without a jersey on.


    but the kid could absolutely jump out of the gym.

    I have just never seen a redshirt used in that way. They were basically telling him, "We needed you as a Freshman but you probably won't see the court too much as a Sophomore so why don't you just sit this one out". Some kids could probably see the benefit in that, others could see it as a slap in the face. One thing is for sure, he saw the 3 transfers every day in practice so he knew what was coming in that regard. There could be other scenarios that led to this too that we know nothing about.

    I don't think so. Evans and Davis redshirted their first year here and both played last year. By the end of the season, Davis was a key contributor off the bench while Evans showed flashes of his potential despite being injured most of the year. The Brown situation is different as he was going to be asked to redshirt after playing his first year. That was due to the no. of transfers who sat out last season and the fact there are four seniors on next year's team. There is nothing unusual at this time about the transfer situation here. As ZoomZoon said, movement is prevalent throughout all of college basketball these days.

    Wouldn't have had to be official. He could have been told that his playing time, which was 10 minutes per game this year (8th on the team despite starting early in the year) and decreased as the season went on, would be even less next year. He was active on the boards when in an open court situation, but tended to get blocked out too easily when in a half court game and averaged 1.5RPG. He didn't shoot the ball well from outside even though his FG% was 0.542 as most were layups or put-backs. His 3point% was 23.1% and his FT% was 44.4%.

    I agree with this. Many times the parents are the ones who get frustrated quickly when a player does not see as much action as they believe is warranted. That is when they start thinking a guy may play more somewhere else. That is the main reason they leave.

    I liked Roydell as a player and was hoping he would improve during the year. I wish him well as I expect he is transferring mainly for PT ... he was getting less as the season unfolded and next year he knew it would be an issue.

    I don't remember him being at the basketball banquet; this may explain it.

    Good luck Roydell.

    With Brown transferring, we are now looking to bring in a post player.

    If it is a post player it would make sense for him to be a transfer who may sit. We didn't lose a post player and we're gaining Gant. That being said I wouldn't be shocked if something comes up and Stalcup doesn't return.

    Was curious since the fall semester started as to where Roydell ended up. I tried to research but didn't find anything. Anyone know if he joined another program?

    Hate to see him go. I think he could have developed into a really valuable player for us. Kid is athletic as heck. Good luck Roydell

    From what I recall, that is the correct view. Plus, this JC is not that far from New Orleans which is his home. Had he transferred to another D1 school he would have to sit out. Now, he can go to any school who wants him after a year in the JUCO ranks. He probably feels he will showcase his skills there and get better offers. He likely will get lots of highlight dunks but there is much more to the game of course. If I were a college athlete, I would want to redshirt as that would give me five years to get my degree. Of course these guys all think they can play pro ball and they don't understand how few really do.

    Mike, he's a high energy athlete, but still had scoring deficits outside the occasional rebound and put back. Was good on defense.i think had he'd given us a chance to coach him up he could've been a great redshirt sophomore.
