In one of the more awkward switcheroos in college basketball, Marshall transfer point guard Kareem Canty has left USF for Auburn the team confirmed today.
We have no idea what happened, just that Canty will not suit up for the Bulls ever. Here's all the relevant tweets that sum up the story better than we can.
The hardest I ever worked in my life with these workouts !!

Kareem Canty told ESPN he has re-considered and is now heading to Auburn after initially committing to Auburn, then committing to South Fla.

So... yeah that happened. The flip flop Tweet was from a Marshall parody account, but we wish Kareem well and hope he finds happiness on The Plains or wherever he lands. You shouldn't be here if you don't want to be here.
And in more normal transfer news, Zach LeDay found his landing spot: at Va. Tech with former Bulls assistant Steve Roccaforte and new head coach Buzz Williams.
LeDay averaged 3.5 points and 2.6 rebounds in 15 minutes per game last year for the Bulls. We wish Zach all the best in Blacksburg, and hope he can find a way to contribute in the ACC in 2015-16.
