Boyle on ESPNU with Horowitz and Cuff today


He was on for a solid 20 minute segment, if anyone has the Sirius app you can probably search Tad Boyle and listen to it, or you can find it by scrolling through their show, it was around the 12:30 mark.

Lots of interesting things covered, but most interesting was his thoughts on grad seniors returning. Boyle said that while that would benefit the program for next year, it would be very problematic in the longer term. He said that CU will have 8 freshmen next year (last year's and this year's recruiting classes both will be freshmen next year), as opposed to generally having 3-4 kids per class. He said that bringing back seniors would create a logjam. It made me think that perhaps he intentionally didn't encourage Horne and Schwartz to return.

Another interesting point brought up on the show--there are already 1200 players in the portal, and the season isn't even over. If that number gets to 1500, that will mean that 1 in 3 players in D1 basketball are transferring.
