On the topic of transfers, Tom Izzo isn’t going to say he thinks it’s bad for the game, and he knows coaches can move freely, but he just thinks it’s bad for the players themselves. Whether or not you want to describe it as an “epidemic,” there have been more than 600 transfers in college basketball this spring. Sometimes, it’s a grad transfer for a guy who wants more playing time, and Izzo has been supportive of that. But there are many other instances he feels players are leaving adversity too quickly, and there are people around the player telling them to leave.
