Freshman forward Jarrod Uthoff recently told Wisconsin that he wanted to transfer from the basketball program and be closer to his Iowa home, but head coach Bo Ryan and the school are making it extremely difficult for him to do so.

According to Metro Sports Report, Ryan has prevented Uthoff from transferring to any Big Ten or ACC school, as well as Iowa State and Marquette. 

Ryan went on ESPN's Mike and Mike in the Morning radio program on Thursday to talk about Uthoff's transfer, and just made the situation worse.

Twitter erupted with criticism over Ryan's comments, and here are some of the best tweets.

Good news has arrived courtesy of ESPN's Andy Katz, who tweeted on Thursday afternoon:

Shaun King, former NFL quarterback and current NBC Sports analyst had strong feelings about Ryan's defense on blocking schools.

Bleacher Report's national lead writer Dan Levy also wasn't thrilled with Ryan's defense.

A twitter account named "Awful Announcing" tweeted what many people listening to the Ryan interview felt this morning.

CNBC's Darren Rovell makes a good point that Ryan could have made right of the situation, but clearly failed to do that.

ESPN's Chris Larsen doesn't think Uthoff needs to give Ryan a transfer explanation, and I think most would agree.

Twitter user John B. Leahy says what many of us felt listening to the Ryan interview this morning.

Hard to disagree with this tweet from ESPN's Jemele Hill.

Jim Polzin of the Wisconsin State Journal gives us an explanation of the transfer.

Twitter user Spencer Hadelman brings up a good point regarding NCAA rules.

ESPN's Jay Bilas has a strong opinion on Uthoff's transfer.

It's hard to disagree with Twitter user Sean Hackbarth's tweet.
