    Some people speak up, some do not. It happens. Vogt wasn't a highly recruited guy. Not likely to be a squeaky wheel.

      I am willing to give some credit to whatever the injury was he suffered with respect to the diminution of his quality of play part way into his first season with UC, but I suggest that most of his troubles stemmed from quality of opposition. Many decried Cronin's early schedules with respect to the strength of opponents scheduled early on in each season, and that year was no different, despite his leaving for UCLA. Vogt was OK against some low level guys, but when the quality of opponent was upgraded his deficiencies were exposed. I assume he is a perfectly nice guy - but he was never even remotely a high division 1 basketball player; despite his size.

        Hard to tell as he had shoulder surgery a couple weeks ago and i heard it was the opposite shoulder so something was bothering him. It's a lot easier for big kid playing with Tre Scott and JC which we all could see.

The fan base is begging for Eason to come back, but I haven’t heard a single person calling for the return of Vogt. That says it all.
          I think the comment here has more to do with his transfer than anything Brannen did. The kid worked hard, played the best he could, and maybe was just tired of being called the "worst player on the team," here and elsewhere.

            Chris has landed at Wisconsin as a grad transfer. That should be interesting. I hope he does well there. Maybe he'll finally blossom a bit now that he's healthy and out of Brannen's sphere of influence.

              I hope he does well also and gains some vindication for all the heat he took here this year. I never knew how much his health played into his performance if at all but I am anxious to see if he can put things together under new leadership and with a fresh start. Apparently this Big 10 team doesn't view him as the low mid major player many on this forum portrayed him to be. Good luck Chris.

                  Article on Vogt ($) committing to Wisconsin. Mentions he likely would have stayed at UC had Brannen remained the coach
