Re: Summarizing the new transfers / recruits

I just hope the staff does not make the same mistake as we did with Shelly. Transfers will have to compete with our returning players for playing time and no preference treatment will be given to them.

There are several ways this could have gone down. First the coaches could have dismissed him from the team as most of us assume. Another possibility was the teams leadership council met and voted him off the team. I have heard the latter was
