    Question for John F. Any idea who is likely to get Thurmond's minutes next year? Is Rodriguez making progress in practice? Haven't seen his name in the box score. Will he be a redshirt?

    Anything constructive will be appreciated. I have already heard that Monty is a decrepit old man with one foot in the grave who is just collecting a paycheck.

    Both Rodriguez and Fried blueshirted this year. Wondered all year why Johnson didn't get minutes this year as a 6-7 shooter. Thought he could learn defense if he was on the floor more.

    Does "blue shirt" mean they still have 4 years eligibility remaining if they do not play the rest of the year? We never blow anyone out so there are no garbage time minutes available for guys like Johnson. Hard to see minutes for him next year with all the wing players available. Looks like a candidate to transfer.

    Yes, for Frid and Rodriguez.

    Johnson cannot blueshirt because he has played this year. Even playing in an exhibition game disqualifies an uninjured player from blueshirting. A player that has a season ending injury can qualify if he hasn't played in 1/3 of the games or in a game after the half way point, and if he hasn't already used up his blueshirt year (ala Kreklow).
