Players react to Hope's departure

New, 12 comments

It is all starting to line up. First, the coach's (and his wife's) reaction after the IU game. Then the announcement of the press conference. And now some of the players hit the Twitter world.

Now Ryan Russel tweeted after that about his mother leaving, so that could be part of it. But to see 3 different players show sudden shock is a sign. After all, the players have shown their support for Coach Hope over the last couple of weeks, even taking the blame for the losses for Hope.

It is only a matter of time before this becomes official. At least the players found out first. There is also Hopeful Danny's tweet:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet tw-align-center"><p>I was about to leave to go 'cruiting, but Morgan asked me to stick around my office for the afternoon...Someone's getting extra per diem.</p>&mdash; Not Danny (@HopefulDanny) <a href="https://twitter.com/HopefulDanny/status/272799474018054145" data-datetime="2012-11-25T20:30:37+00:00">November 25, 2012</a></blockquote>

Stay tuned.
