The other conference teams don't know how to deal with unorganized grab ass.

I think it's not so much about college basketball being bad. I think its that its not that hard to put together 6 or 7 guys that are elite ball players. It's not like football where you need 40 plus. In football a mid-major will play even a middle of the road BCS team and lose by 40, but in basketball every game is close.

I like seeing the older teams rough up the elite.

I used to enjoy seeing the great players play 3-4 years in college.It made for a great tourney.This year is a turkey shoot.

My thing is this...the elite teams got that way under the old rules when they had elite seniors and juniors.  We're still the ones kicking ass with youngins. John Wall and Cousins would've left UK last season under the old rules. Do you really want to have gone through four years of that?  I would've loved it.  Just saying, most of the detractors of the current system seem to forget that we keep these guys even longer...its not gonna be better for the little guy.

The game is awful now though there are no scorers games are won 48-42.. A good rebounder, and a defensive team and you've got a good chance these days.

Florida is the only SEC team that had a good regular season.
That's why everyone said the SEC was bad. It was.

Then all the other one and done talent would have went somewhere rather than sit on your bench.

Yep,because there would be some other teams with older talent to knock them off,potentially.They were good but not unbeatable and this would make a great scenario for a tourney.

College basketball is getting watered down.

Let me be clear: I want the rule to change to 3 year minimum commitment to the school. Either stat for the long haul or ply your trade overseas for the duration.  That includes the university honoring a scholly for that duration, provided the student athlete does what they're supposed to I the classroom and off the court,
