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.
If there was the no one and done rule, y'all wouldn't have the endless amount of 5 stars like y'all do now. They would be more spread out between teams and y'all may not have ever gotten Wall or Cousins.

This is assuming Cousins wasn't kicked off the team because of his bad attitude lol.

?? Kentucky has always gotten top talent.   Tubby and Gillespie didn't last because they didn't. Total non point when discussing us. I get what you're saying about a guy not wanting to sit behind others and wait,  but then I look at our bench.

The NBA upped their age eligibility minimum because of the profusion of guys like Kwame Brown.  Had nothing to do with NCAA policy folks. All of your anger should be directed at the league and AAU

If Tennessee and Kentucky win their Sweet16 games, they meet in the Elite 8.

Florida can only meet either in the title game.

A Florida/Kentucky or a Florida/Tennessee title game would be awesome for the SEC.

Sweet16 has to feel good for them after a 10 loss season where they only beat 1 good team.

I realize that, but it's not like they kicked the Shockers ass, it went down to the last posession....

The problem here is that you are making sense.
They have none of it.
