Good kid, great talent. I hope she is fine. I will be interested to see how vtalkers treat this, some programs get free passes on this type of thing others skewered. The loss of her as a player hurts them for sure, what the dynamic of her leaving does to them as a group will be another thing. I know this, Northrn Lights phone line is gonna be blowin up this morning. ( I bleieve that was her club)
Am I the only person who thinks Minnesota's program has been quite dysfunctional over the past 4-5 years? Bringing in transfers - even in their final season, players leaving at an alarming rate, coaching turn-over, unexpected losing streaks, not playing well in NCAA tournament....

Right, we shouldn't assume a player is "unstable," especially when we've seen nothing on the court that would give that impression.
College sports are a huge commitment and can create so much additional stress at a time when young people are starting to define themselves as individuals. With the travel schedules and practice schedules, it is tough to balance school with social life and team. I doubt we'll find out much more about the reasons, but I do know that it couldn't have been an easy decision that was made lightly.
As a fan I'm disappointed, but I am also curious to see how the team moves forward. I also really hope that Brook is OK and hope things work out for her.
