    Just let them go Pro and showboat all they want. I don't need to be rewarded by the NCAA to see it for one year in college.

    Re: How far does Kansas State go?

    I guess I look at it in the respect of building a team and not a one man show. When a player is solely coming in for one year and then gone, this builds nothing. I like the story of dynasties. Get dominate teams for mulitple years instead of just one. I really think its changing the way of college basketball. Plus it takes scholarships away. Maybe not from someone who really needs it, but then again maybe it does.

    Difference of opinion I guess.

    Re: How far does Kansas State go?

    I personally think it should be a two year rule instead of one. It helps build a little more education for the athlete in case things don't go stellar in the NBA but it also helps the team more for giving that player a spot.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    I would take Beasley or Durant for one year over not at all, 1000 times over.

    If a kid deserves a scholarship he'll get it somewhere. Dynasties are pretty much a thing of the past anyway - it really doesn't happen anymore. Great players win games and so they try to get the best players regardless of how long they stay. If Brackins improves a ton next year and goes pro, does that mean it was a mistake to recruit him? No way.

    Stuff like Florida winning it 2 years in a row just doesn't happen anymore because 99% of those guys all go pro after they win the first one.

    If Walker keeps playing this well, he's probably gone after this year too.

    Would you rather have a guy like Beasley that is one and done or a guy like Rahshon that is really solid for 4 years? That would be a difficult one for me that would depend on the supporting cast we had for the team.



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Re: How far does Kansas State go?

    This discussion adds merit to the screw job Lucca got. In essense aren't we getting punished a scholarship for a season for bringing in a kid who is working toward a degree? One and dones never have any intention of earning their degrees. What's the point in entering college? I was under the presumption it was to get an education and not to play basketball. There should be some kind of punishment for schools who bring in the one and dones. Maybe the loss of a scholarship the season following a departure.
