Imagine if players stayed for the long haul how legit college bball would be. Like the ACC in the 70's and 80's

Kentucky fans definitely want the rule to change.  We'd love to have just graduated John Wall and still have Anthony Davis.

Yeah, I mean one of the best reasons for kids getting their degree is so they learn what it is to become an adult and be responsible, including being responsible with that instant 7-figure bank account they're about to have; but if they're only staying 1 year they don't learn any of that or take real courses anyway, so it's basically useless.

Every year we hear about multi-million dollar athletes being bankrupt within like 5 or so years from the day of their retirement; and a legit college degree can go a long way toward preventing that, and if an athlete suffers a career-ending injury early in his career and never makes the big money, he'll have the degree that enables him to get a real job.

Every time I hear a coach say that sending these kids along to the NBA right away is for their benefit I just want to slap the taste out of his mouth; because how is it beneficial to send a kid up without first teaching him to handle that kind of money... if that same kid suffers a few ACL, MCL, or Achilles injuries, his next job is asking, "Would you like fries with that?". He can't even go into coaching because even coaches need at least a Bachelor's.

Despite the BS opinions of some Rupp Rafters idiots, BD NEVER holds any kids back if they choose to go pro; but he is very honest with them and tells them what kind of further development they can expect staying AND going.

Having all the information, most of UF's kids choose to stay and develop under Billy rather than in the NBA right away; and consequently, having made an informed choice, they actually enter the league in a much better position to contribute right away, and NBA GM's, scouts, and coaches say it repeatedly about Billy's kids when they come in.

You look at somebody like Patric Young; he could've gone at any time over the last 3 years, but he promised his family he'd be a college graduate and he's grown into a much better all-around, complete player during that time. He's also an Academic All-American with an endless number of options as an adult.

That's what a degree will provide for Pat; he's grounded, a better decision-maker, and is set vocationally because that degree is an insurance policy against minimum wage.

Degrees provide options; and turning boys into responsible men and sending them out into the real world with as many options as possible is really what's beneficial for the players... not just sending them up unprepared.

Cal's logic is if they're  to get guaranteed draft money going in the top 10-15 picks then they probably need to go.   They can help their families abs aren't likelY to improve their draft stock.   That makes sense. The problem comes with the guys who are looking to get drafted after that.

If a player is a lottery pick then it would be a travesty if they didn't go to the draft. No doubt earning a degree is important for their lives but if they endure a career ending injury then that coach should feel like absolute Posted Image. Money or not, these kids dream is to play professionally. It's kind of a double edged sword because sometimes it is in a player's best interest to go pro rather than stay and get a degree.

I don't know what ppl on RR say but I doubt a coach like Billy d holds kids back.

Well, Beal only stayed a year, but he was unusual. Despite Billy being a guard himself when he played, his specialty really seems to be building big men, primarily forwards and centers.

Just a glance at the Gator/NBA roster shows some pretty convincing results...

Matt Bonner - 6'10" - 9 years
Corey Brewer - 6'9" - 6 years
Udonis Haslem - 6'8" - 10 years
Al Horford - 6'10" - 6 years
David Lee - 6'9" - 8 years
Mike Miller - 6'8" - 13 years
Erik Murphy - 6'10" - Rookie
Joakim Noah - 6'11" - 6 years
Chandler Parsons - 6'9" - 2 years
Marreese Speights - 6'10" - 5 years

I'm not sure any of those guys would've been ready to enter the league and contribute right away after only 1 year.

Other players, like Cousins, are able to pull it off; but those guys are usually the exception imho... and even he could've benefited from some additional maturation and structure; he's still an asshole thug.

I'm done with them as soon as they head to the NBA no matter what year they leave but yeah this rule needs looking into.
