Seriously??? Right in the middle of the season?

 

It's always possible that he has grade issues stemming from how the last semester ended up.  But...that's pure speculation.

Just saw a tweet that said it wasnt grades.

 

I think Jordy just wants to be able to play next year at this time.

 

I dont get it unless he already has a place in mind.... Something has to be going on. 

 

Really crappy thing to do to your teammates.

The reason Jordy would look to transfer now is that there are a good number of schools he can get into this weekend (or even into next week) and be eligible to play in the Spring semester of 2019.

Washut thinks he is unhappy with his role and development to this point. He showed some flashes last year but I really just think he’s not very good. Pray we get Thamba.

I typically have a rule where I don't trash or heavily criticize a player on here.

 

But, the more I look at this, I have absolutely zero respect for him and this move.  Here is a player that has started all 18 games this year and is obviously a player the team thinks they need on the team that has a chance to make it to the NCAA tourney........and this move is totally selfish in my book.

 

See ya....don't let the door hit ya.....

Are you serious? This is just ANOTHER of the many examples of this type of thing happening on a Miles team.  This shouldn't even be a surprise.  I'll let the door hit you, he has every right to leave a coach that can't develop anyone.

I have always had a soft spot for Jordy since he was super nice to my daughter last year.

 

But it totally sucks to quit on your team halfway through the season when that team has a decent shot to make the tourney.

You have to do what's right for yourself, just like coaches do, clearly just another example of Miles not being able to a cohesive team together.

So...look at all the transfers are on our team. Does that mean their former coaches couldn’t either?

I get what you are trying to say here but I don't think it applies to this situation. Jordy has been a starter this entire year and has played and would continue to play a key role in the success of this team. This team looks to be better/more cohesive than any team in the past few years.

Seems like you have some built up anger for Miles and I get it, but also think Jordy doesnt get a free pass. 

 

He is unhappy with his progression? Maybe he should point the thumb and not the finger. Get in the gym and work your butt off and quit relying on others or blaming others for your lack of success.

 

Miles started him all 18 games... not like he wasnt given the chance to see time on the court.

Well whatever he decides to do a bit of advice. Get in the weight room and start lifting, young man.

I’ve been saying this all year. Have Duby take him under his wing as he obviously knows what he is doing. Add some strength and agility and he could be a serviceable player.

If you've watched any games, it seems like this year's team is very cohesive, except for Jordy.  I am not a huge Miles fan, but this isn't on him, this is on Jordy.

Lack of player development shouldn’t rest solely on the coach alone, the player has to make the commitment to develop and put the work in to make themselves better. 

 

This is really sucks after he had his best game against Wisconsin.

Since UNL’s 2nd semester has started and he has played a game, does that mean he wouldn’t be eligible at the beginning of the 2nd semester next year?

 

Thats the impression I got from Lee’s article.

Player development has been a problem under Miles. It's not really up for debate at this point.

 

The loss of Jordy hurts because it leaves us short on big men going forward. That's about the only reason, to be honest. He has been horrendous this year, for whatever reason. If Okeke/Brochardt step up, and stay out of foul trouble they'll be fine.

This is not correct, that's same excuse people tried to give when Pettaway left, who might have been the best player miles will ever have.  Pettaway was detrimental, he doesn't care about his team, blah blah, all while being the best player on the floor.  Trying his best to keep the team alive.

They are going to be fine losing a starter that is 7 ft tall? I think it's going to be a huge deal, he was worth 5 fouls in the paint which is huge.  You going to put those guys down there and have to risk Copeland and Roby on the block? Nothing about this says we will be fine.  I'm done with the Miles defending, he can't coach, he can't improve players, he can't keep teams together.  I understand attrition stats, and Miles is way above the average.

For the record Shields has been Miles best player.

This one in particular? Yes.

 

He's a liability on the glass. A liability on defense. And he's often detrimental to the flow on offense. He literally brings nothing that you'd expect from your 7 foot Center.

 

Quiting on his team aside, he seems like a good kid, and I wish him well.

Uh. Not even trying to argue, but Petteway was exactly that, detrimental and only cared about himself when things weren’t rosy.

I don’t remember the excuses for Miles when Petteway turned pro, but I don’t see how this is a similar situation.  That 2015 season was a complete mess and the entire team and coaches were disfunctional. This year, all I hear about the team is how cohesive and together the players are.  Then when there is one player that isn’t on the same page with the players and the coach, it’s the coach’s fault? This Jordy situation is totally different. He’s not playing well, so he’s just looking to get out of here.  I don’t see how that is Miles’ fault.

Development?  I’m not a huge fan of Miles, but what is the dude supposed to do?  Jordy misses point blank shots over and over.  He’s slow to make a move to the basket. He doesn’t position himself for rebounds and can’t box out.

Rumors are that advice from "behind the scenes" is pushing this, not anything academic or from Jordy himself, in particular.

I’m all for guys transferring if they don’t like their situation (Morrow, Jacobson, etc.), but don’t bail on your team mid-season.  Do it after the season.

those are all teachable skills. so i guess a dude would do what a coach should do, teach and coach until they are done correctly.

Pettaway didn't leave in the middle of the season when the team was making a run for the tourney.

First, Jordy is not 7 feet tall. 6'9 is how tall he is. I've met him and you can tell my looking at teams photos he's no taller than Jacobson was.

 

I like Miles, but how do you lose 4 players within a year? Morrow, Jacobson, Horne and now Jordy. Not even counting Fuller since I feel he was just looking for PT and wasn't good enough for a B10 program.

 Sidebar: Fuller is doing a really nice job at USD, but I don't believe he has been in the starting lineup yet.

It's more advantageous for Jordy to transfer now because it moves up the timetable in which he'd be able to play next year.

That’s a great theory and all, but it falls along the same lines as Callahan didn’t coach Joe Dailey into being a better passer.

 

He was a project (risk) when they took him and it’s going no where.  If Jordy goes somewhere else, he will never be heard from again.
