    This is true. I guess what I am thinking is that in ORU's situation -having a first year coach and two graduate transfer eligible players that were not recruited by said coach- one would expect to see transfers. We also got some transfers to come in to the program that look promising. The assistant coach turnover is similar. We had one holdover from the previous staff who left or was fired and we had one assistant who left for a higher level school. We replaced both assistants with seemingly great guys with great experience. It is interesting to see how different people perceive the same developments. I tend to be hopeful about the program, I have always been that way for no logical reason sometimes. So, here's hoping for a season that exceeds all our expectations!

    Which is why Sutton was fired. Sutton ran the program completely into the ground. It’s going to take more than one season to turn it around and Mills hasn’t even had a full recruiting class it yet.

    Hey, if I'm the only one who reacted negatively to that basketball avatar, then it's a hopeless cause. But, this really DOES look better - props to whoever was responsible. And, if some day they tweak the bird's bill so it's actually a golden eagle and not a sparrow hawk, I might actually approach something along the lines of being happy. But don't hold your breath - LOL.

    I agree with this, Old Titan, to an extent. I think there are more players in the world that can come in and contribute right away at a mid to low major than at a high major. So it actually would be easier to have a player “in your back pocket” for this level rather than for a higher level, in my opinion. The other thing that you are failing to mention is these players that transferred, along with Coach Perry who moved along, did not choose Coach Mills when they chose ORU. No matter HOW the season went, I believe any rational fan or observer would understand having multiple players leave the year after a new coach took a job is not cause for concern. Especially when the time the new coach took the job, it was basically too late in the year to transfer or look elsewhere.

    I can't agree with this. There are just too many factors that go into players deciding to transfer from low-majors. Sometimes, players get opportunities to move on to better programs, sometimes, they're unhappy, and yes, sometimes the coach is doing something wrong. However, I don't think that's the case here. There's too many positive developments around the program for me to believe that. Instead I see two transfers who were good players, but who had already graduated, move on to what they perceive as better situations. I don't think either of them transfer if they hadn't graduated, but props to them for getting it done. Additionally, I look around college basketball and just down the road OU had Jordan Shepherd, their presumed starting point guard next year, transfer. They also had some other good players like Kameron McGusty transfer. Some transfers just don't make sense. It doesn't mean Lon Kruger is doing anything wrong. In fact, one could say that he actually wanted some of those guys to transfer. Either way, transfers are hardly a sign that you're doing something wrong in your program. There are many explanations for transfers in today's college basketball world. I think ORU Basketball is in good hands and I can't wait for next season!
