His mom’s fiancé is Tony Bergeron who was an assistant at Umass. Evidently they are looking for a high major spot where Bergeron can join staff and Mitchell and can transfer. Unclear if that will happen
Guessing they'll find a program or two willing to accommodate --- maybe even Mizzou based upon recent history.

There are many stories about this in the media, and to me, it reads like quite the sketchy situation.

If Antigua gets poached by Kentucky, maybe.

No way. I don't see BU playing like that nearly for anyone at all. I think he's probably not into these types of players and give how each asst. coach of his really brings it at all phases of the game (recruiting, coaching, scouting, etc) he would be severely handicapped if he did try to pull this off. I'm not above the program doing it, but for me, it has to be either for a true difference maker on the floor or for one that has a little of both where player is a great player and coach has credentials and potential to coach at the top.

I would love to have AM back, but one of Groce's biggest mistakes was not being able to accurately gauge how a recruitment was going, and letting high profile guys string us along till the very end leaving us scrounging for scraps when they eventually turned us down.

Glad to see that Underwood is not taking the same approach, we can't afford to be left holding the bag.

Looks like we really "bought low" on Storr and Bass. If they keep up this up could push themselves into Top 50-75 consideration pretty fast(if they don't get there in this recent update.)
