That article does not sound correct. It states that he only had 2 years of eligibility remaining at URI, and will only have one year left wherever he ends up, unless he is granted the waiver. My question is this: If he played one semester at UVA, and one semester at URI, for a total of one season, wouldn't he have had 3 years of eligibility at URI? Therefore, wouldn't that add a year to each of the article's transfer scenarios?
This is good for Bill and JB. I am sure that at the beginning of last season, no one felt that JB's job was in jeopardy, and that is why he transferred to URI, believing he would play for his Dad. This is good move for Canisius and JB, Bill is classy guard with a fine shooting touch, who will be a force in the MAAC, when he becomes eligible. I talked with JB at the reunion, and he is upbeat on his latest rebuilding project at Canisius. He has some inbound transfer talent, and is on the recruiting trail, and Bill will help. I wish him only the best, except when he plays us!!

What?!?! URI fans have calling for him to be fired for years. Welcome back to the bandwagon Cind E. Baron.
Weird that we have recruits that back out at the age of 18, and are criticized for not honoring their word. Yet, the son of a patron saint, that also has his alleged guidance, turns away two programs in 2 years and someone claims it's a good move. Stay Classy Bill E. Non-Bonnie.
Can't we all just get along? Seriously folks, who really cares what school Bill Barron transfers to or leaves? Besides, what is wrong with wanting to play for your father? Good father/son bonding. In a day in age of many boys not having a strong father influence in their lives I find this refreshing. You can tell the long, sleepy, humid nights are creeping into the Bandwagon. Go for a walk, ride a bke, play a round of golf, read a book a St. Francis, etc.
This article could have been written about thousands of college athletes and thousands more college coaches. What's the point? That's just the way things have become. Picking on one doesn't seem right.
A large number of young men change their minds frequently. It's because many don't really know what they want. They're learning. I see no problem with him playing where he wants. It's his life, not the university's or ours. He has to live with his decisions and should do what he thinks is best.
