Gut punched, You're joking, correct? Since when does battle receive 1 set of rules and everyone else have another. He was allowed 1 transfer which he received, could of had another if he would have graduated, he didn't. We are a country of rules and laws, follow them.
Courts will soon rule permanently that artificial NCAA restrictions on player movement without a CBA are illegal, so this judge is allowing the NCAA is to get ahead of it by allowing Battle to play instead of sue the NCAA for lost income damages.l, which he should do.

“I’m not going to get what I signed for”

I think we all knew that’s what this was really all about.


I know. It’s kind of sad there is even a question of him possibly having to be dishonest with his reason for transferring because of arcane NCAA rules where apparently the bureaucrats at the NCAA decide who has a legitimate mental health issue for transferring and who does not based on zero defined criteria.

After reading that word salad full of mental instability and victimhood I'm not disappointed that his waiver was denied.
I’m just glad that we have a bunch of rich administrators at the NCAA deciding from afar and without expert interviews which players have real mental health issues and which don’t.

Only the NCAA can question a person’s mental health and say they’re lying and still have some people to support them, it appears. Yay bureaucracy!

Have you seen a professional about your obsession?

Watching the highlights of the last couple of games. Sure do miss this kid. He is a special talent.

Just checked his stats. Two games and 29 points in each game. What a talent.

A variation of an old Michael Jordan joke: The only guy who could hold Raequan Battle to under 20 points was Danny Sprinkle. 8)

I chuckled when the announcer said that RaeQuan "almost singlehandedly" led MSU to the tournament last year. Jubrile Belo and Utah State's two best players might have something to say about that!

24 points and 10 rebounds in a losing effort, against one of the best teams in the nation. Battle clearly belongs at this level.

His draft stock is rising daily.

This question is likely asked in jest but with the complete free-for-all the Transfer Portal is right now it's still a valid question. The answer is no, the portal entry windows will still remain in place that wouldn't allow a player to transfer mid-season.

Thanks for the clarification. I find it interesting to see players enter the portal now with just a week remaining.

The Phoenix Suns had RaeQuan Battle in for workouts this past week. It was him, Bronny James and a few others. RaeQuan was singled out in the Arizona Republic as having a super impressive workout.

Battle is listed as the 41st best player available at the end of the draft. Probably a fourth round selection if there were such a thing.
