I think judging the decision making process of a 19/20 year old without knowing any of the details is an exercise in futility. Condemning said player for acting in self interest is also fairly petty.

Call it what you may, but you can be a Dartmouth fan and still support what Boudreaux did. I know I'm excited to follow him as he plays in an infinitely better conference.

Its like beating a dead horse at this point. Move on.

No disrespect, but I think you may be in the minority here.

Imagine Tracey McSorley arriving in camp, taking all the first-team reps, and then announcing the day before the opener that he is going to sit out the season and take a graduate transfer. I can't imagine that going over well in Happy Valley...

That's pretty much what happened here.

Do you though? As far as I know neither Boudreaux or any of the coaches have come out and spoken about it. It is literally all conjecture. As someone who worked with the team it is mind blowing we are having this conversation a full year later.


I get your perspective, but I also think you greatly overestimate how many people care about Dartmouth hoops.

This is kind of my point.

If it was a full year later, we wouldn't be discussing it. Had Bourdreaux left in April 2017, people would have been bummed, but understanding.

But it hasn't been a full year, has it? He left the day before the 2017-18 season opener.

Big difference.

Do we know for sure that he literally decided the day before the season started? It seems to me that the day before the opener has traditionally been the day Ivy teams wait to drop some of their big news. This year alone, along with Boudreaux's transfer news, Yale announced Bruner and Mason were out indefinitely the day before the season opener. In previous years things like Hans Brase's injury, and Siyani Chambers' injury weren't announced until very close to the season opener. I doubt they literally just found out the day before, but they probably waited to announce for some reason. Is it possible that Boudreaux and the coaching staff simply waited until the day before the opener to make the announcement, but the decision was made before that?

All of that news happened right before the season started. The Yale injuries were during the scrimmage timeframe, so the news was held a week or so before getting out there. The Evan stuff happened right before the season as well - though again, maybe there was a bit of a delay in the news getting out.

Neither happened, say, over the summer and was held until the fall or anything like that...

Fair enough.

That being said, he was in the team photo-which usually gets taken pretty close to the start of the season. They either re-took the photo or digitally edited him out of it.

While I have never spoken to Evan personally, my posts on this are not conjecture but based on what I consider to be very reliable sources. I stand by my comments

Well, I'll just say consider the perspective of your sources. I've been around the team for almost 4 years now and almost all of it is conjecture.

Here's a Chicago Tribune article on Boudreaux's start at Purdue:
