    I really feel for this young man. He was treated terribly by Brady and the players know it. But you can bet their will be no shortage of suitors for this 6-9 inside force who held his own and sometimes outplayed Stromile Swift in high school and was a JUCO All-American. I could see him fitting into a program like Louisville, North Carolina or UCLA for his senior season. Rest assured, this stupid move by Brady will not hold this young man back. Shawnson will be playing major college basketball next year, John Brady won't be coaching it however.

    Yeah Boy

    I bet the big time programs are salivating for a guy who helped lead his juco team to 14-17 and 18-13 records in his 2 year career and wasn't even the star of his team.....some guy named Okafor was and he signed with Houston.......Ooooh a powerhouse!

    The guy was a nobody in JUCO and i would question more why Brady would bring him in as opposed to the kid quitting.

    He is listed one time in the schools record books......pay attention to that the SCHOOL not the JUCO records books.....he's 4th all time with 6 rebounds per game.....that is an AWESOME accomplishment....6 a game i think point guards can do that.

    See for your self. http://www.lee.edu/athletics/basketball/

    Get a grip and lay off Brady. This is a classic case of guy who thinks he is a superstar and gets his feelings hurt when he isn't the "Stud". The best thing has happened and he is gone.

    Tongue in cheek

    Don't let satire prod you into saying something until this is all settled. Non of us know the inside story or how it will play out.

    I agree roygu, there is a chance that Shawnson could be talking to Brady right now saying he overreacted and wants to be back on the team. But it sure is fun speculating.

    Think there's any chance of Brady giving him a release? Little and none, I'd guess. If so, Johnson won't be playing in the NCAA anytime soon. Burning his bridges wasn't a smart move for a player who's not ready for the NBA yet.

    Still, where have I seen this scenario played out before? Dale Brown, Lester Earl . . .

    Maybe Brady should just give him the release.

    To anybody except Kansas.

    If Brady doesn't give Shawnson his release, wouldn't that finish his college career? He's already lost his junior year and doesn't transferring without a release also cost a year of eligibility? Not totally sure about that rule. :confused:

    Brady will give Release

    If Brady does not give his release then every school in the nation will use that against him in recruiting. They will say look this guy kicks kids off the team and then does not release them to play somewhere else.

    I think Brady should give Johnson his release. However, it appears that Johnson quit, he was not kicked off the team.

    how is it stupid mr wonderful

    the hair rule was not a brady rule, the players voted on that
    johnson deserted his team because he was selfish. he left the arena at halftime, and you want him back? screw him
