Fired Bill Carmody: So long, Johnathan Loyd

So long, Johnathan Loyd

step aside Tavaras, the big boys have arrived. while it's at least encouraging that NU was able to identify this kind of talent early enough that we actually got a campus visit, i certainly would think this is where the courtship ends.

[Loyd] liked his visit to Northwestern and smiled at the thought of helping the once perennial doormat Wildcats make their first NCAA Tournament appearance.

when asked about playing for Billy Donovan or Tom Izzo, Loyd presumably did a lot more than smile at the thought of making multiple tournament, Final Four, and/or NBA draft appearances.

Gosh darn it. I was hoping he'd be our backup / transition to Juice Thompson. Especially now that there are scholarships to go around. But no...

I'm surprised. Traditionally, NU gets those 5'9" players.

Michigan State people don't seem to think there's much to this, and that maybe it was a safety precaution against Lucas or Summers going pro:

no clue about what's going on at Florida, but I'm still holding out hope.
