    Wonder how many high schoolers we see reclassify now that the NCAA is trying to make them ineligible as freshmen?

    Because they literally recommended freshmen ineligibility.

    lol oh no not the commission

    condoleeza rice's dumbass commission made a recommendation to ban freshmen IF the one and done rule isnt changed which the nba has already said it will

    even if the rule isnt change (which again, it is) the rules committee and the member institutions (aka the people who decide these things) would never sign off on it. it means nothing. there is no actual effort to take away freshmen ineligibility. i know as a kentucky fan you care about recruiting more than actual games won but this is a non-starter

    And the NBA said it won't change until 2020, the commission said change needs to happen before that.

    I have a better chance of starting for KU than them ever banning freshman.

    They will change NBA eligibility eventually which is needed, but it won't stop someone from paying kids. NCAA gets to shake finger and make suggestions, but they're as guilty as anyone.

    I am aware as Wilt Chamberlain played on our freshmen team his first year and wrecked everyone. I meant zero percent chance they ever go back.

    This one kinda sucks but not surprised. The one position we can afford to lose. Hopefully we get the Matthews kid that decommissioned for UCONN

    We start a home-home series with NC State next year. Our OOC schedule should be pretty strong with the Maui Invitational too.

    It's an interesting idea, but I'm not sure it will make as big of a difference as the conference think it will.

    Cliff notes version:
    - Teams play 14 scheduled conference games (2 games against their travel partner, 1 against the other 12 teams)
    - Teams are then placed in groups based on the standings (1-5, 6-10, and 11-14)
    - The final four conference games will be entirely made up of games that you are grouped in, so the top ranked team would face teams ranked 2nd through 5th

    Sounding like Charles Matthews is leaning towards leaving early, would be UMs 8th early entry departure since 2013. Not a single one was a McDonald’s all American.

    He said this year he thought he would be a one and done coming out of high school:facepalm:. Clearly he and his people think he is better than he actually is. He’s not even on some top 100 lists and didn’t get a combine invite.
