Tuesday, Bo Ryan’s saga began. That’s when the internet learned Wisconsin tried to block a freshman from transferring to 25 schools. As public pressure mounted Wednesday, the school played the, “oops, we never got his appeal” card, even though Uthoff filed it on time and left in an administrator’s mailbox.
Wednesday night, ESPN’s Andy Katz took time out of his vacation and called up Bo Ryan, who offered a glimmer of insight into his decision (but it didn’t help because he told Katz Uthoff was prevented from going to one more school, Florida). Thursday morning, Ryan appeared on Mike & Mike. His first public comments on the decision were a disaster.
A few hours later, the school reversed course – instead of blocking Jarrod Uthoff from transferring to 25 schools, we’ll just prevent him from transferring to another Big Ten school.
Everybody wins. [JS Online]
