Sid had an interesting nugget today from Tubby...

Gophers basketball coach Tubby Smith admits he might be too lenient about keeping the door open for players to return after they consider entering the NBA draft. Take the case of junior center Ralph Sampson III, who has applied for the draft but can withdraw. Smith has more than one outstanding player who wants to transfer to the Gophers, and most coaches would tell Sampson to make up his mind now so Smith can get the transfer and not lose him to another school. But that's not Smith's way. So Smith will wait until next week to find out what Sampson is going to do.

An outstanding transfer you say? Don't tell that to some of our loyal commenters, they won't wait for the door to hit Ralph on his way out to the NBA undrafted free agency.
