    This one isn’t a surprise, but it also feels a bit weird since we never really got to see what he could do. That alone, pre-injury, was probably a good indication he wasn’t going to get minutes, but seems like a great kid that had already overcome a lot with a unique body/skill set. Best of luck to him!

    Glad to see JGB will get the opportunity for more playing time, but happy for Butler's program because this frees up a scholarship for a player who can actually contribute more--hopefully at either point guard or as a big man.

    There's two. One more to go is my prediction from all I've heard. I really like this kid, his skill set just wasn't going to play at this level. But props to him for overcoming what he did and best of luck to him moving forward. I hope he can fulfill his goal of receiving a degree.

    Now, let's get some players.

    I think everyone on here should wish JGB the best whether your glad we have another open scholarship or not. He didn’t get hardly any minuets and always seemed encouraging to his teammates and the way he announced his transfer seemed very classy. He also mentioned he talked with Jordan and they had good discussion.
    A lot of guys can bring down a locker room that were in his spot but he never seemed to do that. Thanks JGB

    I like that you pointed out that despite not getting minutes, he found a way to contribute. Being a great teammate is something that everyone should strive to be, and he was. That’s a mark of a kid with high character.

    I hope he finds a destination that allows him to maximize his educational and athletic experience.

    My sentiments exactly. Just overcoming his background and getting a college degree is a huge win.

    It’s too bad he didn’t develop into Rosie 2.0. Good luck finding a better playing situation JGB!

    Or David.

    Either way we stand at two. Two insanely important slots. I think the pressure has been turned up a notch and LJ needs to hit a couple solid line drives if not homers on these openings. Two players that can impact to go around the core coming back moves us from a BE basement resident to the next level. This is all on LJ now, as it is becoming HIS team and not an inherited one, little by little.

    could be both and more...there seems to be a growing rift between players and coaches namely LJ, this could go from bad to worse if there isn't some kind of closed door healing/open discussion on what needs to happen next involving the AD, coaching staff and players. That needs to be done behind closed doors and I hope we never hear about it.

    I hope he makes a good decision on his transfer, he always had a smile on his face and very respectful in conversations with fans. Sorry it did not work out at Butler.
    Best of luck JGB.

    I thank him for choosing to be a Bulldog and I hope he finds a place to get playing time and a quality degree. These choices may be easy for us, but uprooting is pretty tough to do, and leaving friends is hard. I certainly do not like change as my wife of 43 years will tell you. When I go to restaurant she knows exactly what I will order.
    I also appreciate the classy way he conducted himself, his post upon leaving and his witness both by words and deeds. Good luck wherever you end up.
