They now have a great deal of experience. Next year they would really go far; possibly all the way. If they go into the NBA, they could get hurt then their contract could come to a halt. What then, no education, no more money being thrown at them. As far as Calipari, great coach but he needs to find players to keep and win National Championships. Let the high profile High School players go play somewhere else! This should never be allowed to happen. I wish the Ky Wildcats program would be like it was back in the 70's!
for UK to be like the 70s the rules have to change. if calipari doesnt recruit like he does now he puts uk back to the tubby smith days; win 20 every year , get a 5 or 6 seed in dance , and once every four years contend for a title. calipari would be out of a job quick because duke , kansas , UNC , and half the big east would continue to get all the best players and contend every year.
take a good look at tubby smith. what kind of success has he had in minnesota ? nothing has changed. his teams still win 20 plus and he tries to sneak into the dance. minnesota is happy with that. the hockey team is the one they want contending for a national title every year.
thats subpar at UK.
the ncaa and nba need to work better together. right now the nba is destroying college basketball. the wait one year rule did nothing but help the nba.
the best thing that could ever happen to college basketball is for the nba to have a lockout and cancel their next season.
