    Should we be cutting scholarships

    It's come to my attention that it's possible for players to be on the hot seat.

    Should we cut some guys midseason? Should we sign players to 21-day scholarships?

    It's time for change.

    Let's give scholarship to that Jack Taylor kid from Grinnell. I mean, he did score the most single game points in NCAA history!!

    They all need kicked off the team. Open tryouts after finals week in Lied. Time for me to bust out the Nikes.

    I'm stretching. I'm good for a couple of games, as far as anybody knows.

    Cut everyone. Get Set Shot Buford and have a team consisting only of players with the astrological sign Pisces.

    Re: Should we be cutting scholarships

    Ok Erik better start the thread "Should we have done more to keep the Chiz?" I think that is a valid question because if we could have kept him then we would have a National Championship now. Plus CPR is clearly running out of gas.

    Re: Should we be cutting scholarships

    I like the 21-day scholarship idea. Either you perform to the highest extent in 3 weeks or get cut. College basketball is too cutthroat to not implement this idea NAOW!

    Re: Should we be cutting scholarships

    I would, but they would have to sub for me every other play. And another thing, I can't dunk and alleyooops are out of the question.

    Re: Should we be cutting scholarships

    Shouldn't Fred take a paycut, too? Garnish his check or something?




    Paul Rhoads' players never quit.

    Mitten suggested paying him on a win-by-win basis. That would solve this issue.
