    “Goodbye NCAA Basketball as we know it” — if that means a brand of basketball based in frundamentals, high B.B. IQ and solid coaching and development than I am all for it. Outside of Brad Stevens’ Celtics I rarely seen any semblance to the above in the NBA.

    I can translate this in blue collar terms if anyone is afraid to look behind the curtain.

    Maybe the four corners will make a come back and Steve Hale’s sokker playing grandsons will be stars on the unc basketball term.

    Golden Chain’s dream comes true…

    lol, like I said, don’t pretend these 1nDones are students, their paid mercenaries or more likely, modern day slaves because they get sucked into becoming indentured servants in middle school (probably even unknow to themselves). REALLY, if these were coyotes convincing underaged Mexican girls to come to the USA for “good jobs” we’d call it ‘human trafficking’! AND THAT’S WHAT IT IS REALLY!
    Let them do like MLB and play in a farm league. Heck ironically there has been an unholy alliance between the NBA/NCAA to operate as their farm league and no wonder the NBA sees an opportunity to gain the high ground! And what arseholes, they let their slimy agents create the dame problem to begin with! They sucked the NCAA in and are now imploding it.
    That or the NBA can work with the Power 5’s and ESPN to break away and have paid athletes so that the teams become a type of club system like soccer has.

    No BotB but face it, this all started with student going to school they wanted to attend to study and deciding to ‘go out’ for a sports team. Kind of like DIII still does!

    The New Story that just keeps on giving….

    From E$in…

    NCAA tops $1 billion in revenue during 2016-17 school year

    “The majority of the revenue came from its usual source — the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. The NCAA pulled in $761 million from the 2017 NCAA tournament. That number is set to rise to $869 million this year.”

    Otherwise, after today’s basketball game, anybody want to talk ’bout PIGS???

    Pigs get fat and Hogs get slaughtered…

    The only bad day in a pig’s life is his last one…

    You can put lipstick on a Pig, but it’s still a Pig.

    The Pig’s NCAA’s days are numbered….

    NCAA basketball has been “done” forever as we once knew it. I have a hard time wondering why some of you even watch it.

    If there was nothing else to watch and talk about college-basketball-wise…

    And the Sig Eps from STATE and the PhiDelts from Chapel Hill were upholding the tradition and playing twice a season for a keg per game and bragging rights…

    We’d talk about it and watch and talk about the next game and the next season…

    The only thing that would be different would be that they would be playing in Reynolds and Carmichael…

    And NOBODY would complain about that…

    I don’t always agree with Golden Chain but he hit the nail on the head here. The current system – where hundreds of millions legal dollars are distributed to coaches, athletic departments, conferences and the NCAA, while offering only scholarships to their highest producers ( the same they offer a volleyball player who generates negative revenue) – is exploitation at its finest. Now, just because most of the time there is a lot of gold at the end of the rainbow for the most valuable producers doesn’t mean it isn’t exploitative.

    If the NCAA and schools took the high ground and didn’t seek to maximize the revenue from these kids it would be one thing. However, they are the critical cogs in a system that seeks to extract every penny they can from these kids before they move on.

    The NBA appears to want to do the right thing. The NCAA should follow suit. Allow underclassmen to declare for the draft and opt out if they don’t like where they were selected or who selected them.

    And by the way, schools – it would probably be a good idea if you decided to admit kids on their academic abilities rather than their athleticism.

    I wish somebody would have exploited one of my kids and paid for their college.

    College sports are corrupt.
    Too much money involved.

    Texpack – were you or your kids approached by shoe companies or school alumni offering them money?
