    I don't believe Texas would have put out an official release if Shae had not signed a scholarship offer LOI.

    Not many times have we had 15 scholarship players on the roster. Coach G preferred a much smaller roster, and I did not agree with that philosophy as injuries really took their toll while she was here.

    She was signing something on that table with coaches and Mom watching!

    Baylor's roster was:

    2 Seniors: Brown, Jackson
    3 Juniors: Cox, Landrum, Chou
    4 Sophs: Ursin, Richards, Oliver, Morris
    5 Fresh: Smith, DeCosta, Bickle, Egbo, Scott-Grayson

    2019 committed: Jordyn Oliver

    So, for 2019 they would have 3 more slots if no further attrition. There could be one or two more departures at Baylor based on recent posts.

    The irony of this is that the transfer rule is supposed to be allowed if you go to a school that offers a graduate program your original school does not.

    I know, a laugher.

    And to see that she's working on a masters in sport management at UT when it's obvious A&M offers it too.....just get rid of that stipulation NCAA. What a joke.

    That was the original intent of the grad-transfer exception; but, I recall reading somewhere that the different major requirement is no longer in place.

    I always assumed there were several loopholes in the grad-transfer provision. Maybe the original school only offers an undergrad degree in that program? Or the destination school can offer a grad specialization not offered at the original school - Sports Management with a focus on Finance for example. If @Moooooo is correct, I have no problem with doing away with it altogether - give the athletes that have obviously taken a serious academic course load additional options.

    I always thought it was a shame we didn't honor Kahle as a "senior" at the end of the year. I mean, coursework-wise, she and the coaches should have known she could/would graduate. I guess they were lots of balls in the air? What Kahle wanted, if someone was going to transfer out or in, if we would sign another player to 2018?

    Great to get this update on Diani. Very cool of Coach Aston and Coach W.

    Nice to see she wasn't just forgotten after she took a medical retirement.

    Odd turn of events. Tough break for the Mountaineers.

    Any inside info, @SCspur ?

    that was a quick turnaround. Was she going to have to sit out a year if she went through with the move to WVU?

    Dawn simply talked her down from the ledge. Glad she’s staying overall and makes a good back court great and filled with depth.

    No. She would’ve been a grad transfer IIRC.
