i agree Tony. going back to 2005 or so, we've seen SWG, Dosty, Moss, McMahon, Moats, Cain, Gray, Dupree, Avant, and Brewer all leave the team early in one way or another. some due to injuries/medical reasons, some due to transfers, some simply deciding to just quit the team. that's 10 players in a 6 year period. i'm sure there are individual explanations for each one, but when you have volume like that, well your questions are well founded.I kinda get the impression that the quesiton was asked how are the coaches treating you and she responded, however was there an under tone? We dont know we werent there. With that said we know TN has been having problems. They were compounded with Pats illness. We saw during the Parker years many transfers and over the past couple of seasons many more. These are top players leaving. Brewer is a big blow to this season. As the season goes on we will see if there are any other comments.
it depends how technical you want to get re: UCONN... During the same time period we lost Sadiq, Walker, Phillips, EDD, and Jess McCormack. Neither EDD nor Jess made it to a single UCONN practice. i don't think you can really count McCormack as she never set foot on campus. EDD left after one day.An interesting stat. I don't pay a lot of attention to UTenn anymore and I was really surprised at the number of players leaving. How many left for reasons other than injury?
In the same time frame I think the only UConn player that defected was Walker.

you are correct, of course, but i was pointing out kids who "technically" verbaled and then left.Neither Delle Donne nor McCormack ever played in a Husky uniform. I'm not even sure that they even attended an official practice. I don't consider them ex- UConn players. I forgot about Sadiq. That tells you how much she was missed - by me anyway. When did Phillips leave? Wasn't she another one that never played a game. IIRC she left after a few practices. I remember something about injury but also rumors about work ethic.
I'm not sure if McCormack ever even visited campus.
+1 She spent a semester on campus while in her transfer period.Jess McCormack was a student at UConn for the fall semester in 2009 and the early part of the Spring semester in 2009. She was on the bench during home games but was was not permitted to travel for away games. She returned to New Zealand for achilles surgery in Feb 2009 and announced in April that she would remain in New Zealand.
