I'm not saying these sorts of stories get overlooked by the media, but they certainly could get more attention. Between this from Ryan and what Phil Martelli did to Todd O'Brien last December shows just how big of an ego some elite college coaches have. I understand blocking a player's transfer to particular schools because of geography or league affiliation. It's analogous to businesses implementing a non-compete clause in an employee's contract. You want to protect your investment and not let one of our own flourish with a direct competitor. But for Ryan to go out of his way to prevent Uthoff from even engaging in preliminary discussions with ACC schools and Iowa State is just flat out mean, and it would be nice if Ryan or the University of Wisconsin issue a statement on the matter.
