A kid tht i know who play for rhode island came to visit me at the community center. Of course i asked about billy baron. He said billy is real good and will be a star for rhode island. He said most of the guys thought he would get special attention because of the coach being his dad but billy proved he belong. Thy have some guys tht can also play his position but he see billy winning. Now for the good part. The kid also told me tht billy is kicking himself for leaving uva and it not only becasue what happened to his dad. Now this speculation on the kid behalf but he believe billy realized he blew a great opportunity. He also loved coach bennett andt not sure what the new coach have install for him. Now my take. I think he know if he stayed he could be starting this year and probably reshirt last yr and b a sophomore.we probably didnt need him with sammy on the team even if he didnt he could b a starter for two years in the best conferenc. Now i dont think billy was talented enough to start for us but i do believe he would contribute for us and b a quality back up. My guy also said billy is a great person and all the girls love him. He said he is ripped and dnt have a ounce of body fat. What do your think. Do u believe he be startin for us this year. Do u think he contribute this year as a back up or his skills were not good enough to either

Clearly billy is a huge p&&sy and could not be coached or take criticism.
Tugard why do you post this stupid stuff?

You are welcome to not read it..some of us find this interesting to hear..stop hating
Maybe he just wanted to play for his dad or play closer to home.
I think Billy made a mistake and he knows it but one mistake doesn't define a life or an individual. IMHO, Evans would be starting this year whether Billy stayed or not. I think Billy could have had considerable playing time last year as well as this. Everyone said SZ was not athletic enough to play defense in the ACC. With a high basketball IQ, experience in TB's system, even guys who aren't the super athletes can play his defense against ACC-level competition. SZ proved this.
Agreed. Love the inside info (and color commentary). Could do without the UVA alumni hating sometimes, but otherwise keep up the good work!
I remember when BB went off against someone in the beginning of the season (I think it was William and Mary or something..had high hopes for him and kinda bummed that he left, he'll find his way though.

I think the takeaway is that it would be nice to have a backup point guard who was entering his 3rd year in our program. Instead, fingers crossed on Teven Jones.
Personally, I enjoy "where are they now" features in general, as well as hearing about Baron's seller's remorse.
Not sure what compelled you to even bother replying with that comment, but I certainly have a few theories.
I just saw that BB is transferring from Rhode island. It looks like he might head to Canisius, where his dad is now the head coach.
After seeing this I tend to agree with Jay-Z. Toughen up Bill, life ain't always sunshine and rainbows.
Billy Baron thought he could handle it, but it didn't get any easier. Baron, just months after his dad was fired as the head coach at Rhode Island, has decided to transfer from the school.
Yes he did wahoo. Regan stood by his commitment and stood by his team. Rem posters were sayin all the right things when the others transferred but it was i knw it all tugard who went against the board and said forget that these guys are bums for leaving during the season. And guys like G24, mrs e and others tore me apart for saying so. Now people feel it ok but Tugard sacrafised first and kept it real and i will always keep it real. For instance sharing wht one of my lil dudes told me about baron and his situation and look what happens the next day. He leaves. So to the poster tht said it was stupid go eat a sack of white castles and not be around a toilet. Those tht no about white castles knw wht i mean. LOL
In fairness, some of us have strong feelings but don't want to call out 19-20 year old kids in a public forum. Personally I think it is wrong to publicly berate student-athletes, no matter how one feels. That's I choose to go about things no matter how I feel. So just because you were the only one that said it, doesn't mean you are the only one to think it. Other people just conduct themselves differently.
But grim after i said it people grew courage and start to say it and i did not say he will transfer but i said he was kickin himself for leaving and had no idea what the new coach will do with him. I was not told he was leaving but it was suggested he was unhappy. I jus did it in around the way type of deal and did not want to say it without hearing it from the person which was baron. But hey im stupid wht does it matter.
I'm talking about what was said after kids transferred from UVA. Your last post about Baron was fine.
