Here is a better idea, F off, its a Uconn board, dont like what we say? Stay away then, real simple even for you.
If he actually said this stuff then the NCAA should ban kentucky. they aren't even making a pretext of trying to provide an education...Disgusting really. Time for the NCAA to step into the whole college basketball scandal and tell the NBA to go screw itself. If a guy leaves early for the NBA, you lose a scholarship. Plain and simple. If 2 guys leave early you lose 2 scholarships, if 3 or more leave early, you lose their scholarships, plus 1 additional one, since you obvioulsy didn't even try to recruit students. the bulls#*t arguments about guys going to college "to learn their craft" is utter nonsense.As if that is a legitimate reason to go to college anyway... These guys, and I inlcude guys like Drummond too, do it only because they can't be drafted out of high school...If they can't get recruited because the coaches don't want to risk their scholarships going forward, maybe the NBA will suddenly decide that its D-league should be legitimate, or that lo-and-behold they can indeed draft high school kids again.
A Uconn board? Wow, I thought it was a Kentucky board with all that content about Calipari and the Wildcats. Thanks for the clarification and don't forget your meds tomorrow again!
When is this bat$hit crazy douchebag going to get banned? It is bad enough a uass fan is on a UConn board defending a coach that abandoned his team nearly 20 years ago but how f'ed up is it that we have a umess fan defending Oriakhi and his father on a UConn board?
Hey douchy, are you even aware that Alex AND his father made quite a few negative tweets about Calhoun and the program? So, yeah, he will get attacked on a UConn board! Idiot! And since we have recently played Kentucky and go up against Kentucky for recruits, yeah, I think this board is entitled to a few threads and posts about them. Now explain to us why there are just as many posts on a umess board about UConn and Calhoun? We don't play each other and we don't compete for the same recruits because you guys are several levels below us in the college basketball food chain. So why the lingering UConn obsession? Because Calhoun insulted uass 20 years ago in response to the squid being a douche? No wonder you guys still worship him. You are all of the same ilk.
No meds here Frank. Just leave, no one here is really interested in your opinions.
Are you kidding me? Huskymoronic and Yonick love me! And who's Frank?
the biggest problem with the APR is demonstrated by kentucky's "non-traditional" model. If the NCAA cares about education, and believes that the APR contributes to education then the NCAA should NOT grant waivers for players who leave early for the NBA. They didn't in the original draft of the APR system, but whimped out when the basketball coaches complained. Well, go back to the system as orignally designed. If a player leaves early, his team gets docked a point for retention just as if he transferred in bad standing. I'd go further, too and say if a player transfers you get docked too unless he transfers to a lower division. If he has to sit out a year, you lose a point. the current system is beyond bogus and Kentucky just blew the whistle on it. The only time I don't think you should get docked on retention is when a school does the right thing like bouncing a player for violating university policy or state, local or federal law. the last thing you want is a policy that encourages schools to keep people on campus who have are a danger to themselves or the university community. thus, Nate Miles situation, no APR penalty. Andre Drummond, APR penalty for retention. I don't necessarily favor the APR, but it isn't going anywhere so if the argument is that retention is important, then penalize teams that don't RETAIN their players for gosh sake. Other wise, just skip the whole thing...My personal view is that the APR should be replaced by 3 things: More rigorous eligibility requirements from the outset followed by certain milestones to be met along the way (e.g. after 3 years the player has to have completed 72 of 120 credits need to graduate 60% of the required credit to graduate in 5 years.); 4 year scholarship commitment by the school with loss of ability to "re-use" that scholarship until after 4 years regardless of whether the player leaves early or not unless the student leaves for a limited number of reasons not including to declare for the draft. (eg UCONN would be out Drummond's scholarship for the next 3 years. KY would be out what, 5, for the next few years); Requirements to graduate players in 5 years with the right to provide an extra year of scholarship aid to players who have used up their eligibilty but require an additonal semester or year to complete graduation requirements. Reconizing the relatively small class size in baksetball, I would establis some kind of annual sliding scale perhaps, or possibly a multi-year average, but programs that failed to graduate at least 75% of their players in 5 years would be banned from th epost season. I would not allow players to transfer as is now the case, either. Players have to take their share of responsibility for making legitimate progress toward their degrees, and peer pressure can be a wonderful thing. These changes would return the student-athlete to the college game, put coaches on notice that if they recruit a bunch of 1 and dones, they had best be prepared to pay a heavy price, and put athletes on notice that they have a responsibility to make progress too. By allowing a 5th year of scholarship aid, the schools would recognize the extra demand D-1 athletics makes on students and would ensure that the players have the financial ability to complete their education once their playing career at the institution is over.
Umass and Memphis - is Kentucky next ? Calipari left a mess for someone else to clean up. Would anyone be surprised if the NCAA came down on Kentucky due to Cal ?
Many. I don't even think they are a part of the college basketball food chain.
And many think Kellogg is building something special again in Amherst. He is starting to get his recruits and winning. And got a pretty impressive donation to build a dedicated practice facility. And any agreement with your resident moron doesn't speak well of your own intelligence.
Yeah, you and the two voices in your head. So, do you still think you behave better on this board than I did on the umess board? Bat$ crazy mofo..........
bats* crazy? Again, look at your profile avatar. And anyone who has to comb the general discussions section of the Umass MB to uncover something remotely negative about Uconn and report it to his buddies
I'm above average intelligence, but by no means a genius. But you're on here often talkin' a lot of crap. I'm certainly more inclined to agree with someone who's not attacking my beloved Huskies, thank you very much.
Clothy please you aren't this stupid are you? Coming here talking about Calipari and 20 years ago with JC? You still having circle jerk parties over Cal at your house, serving as the pivotman? He's scum, he left your school with a fn mess and you still kneel at his presence - amazing!
Anyway the fact you are here, at The Boneyard, speaks tremendously to the amount of action on the UMass "board" if indeed there even is one. So coming here telling UConn fans what they should and shouldn't talk about is really fn funny!!! And it would seem Kellogg is making something happen there in Amherst and there are some players coming in.....heck maybe a first round exit in the Big Dance will even happen sometime in the near future. I mean the A10 is so damn tough I can't imagine it will be easy to get near the top of that league but one never knows......
Obviously, HE IS!!!
He has been b!tch slapped several times and keeps coming back for more. The best he can do is point out my Avatar for the umpteenth time. Yep, I hate your god douchey. We established that a long time ago. That you feel the need to come onto a UCONN board to tell UCONN fans what the should post on their board regarding a guy that hasn't be at uass tor nearly twenty years shows what a true tool you are.
Please go play in traffic.
