But they could "grandfather in" the 2011 class and allow them to be one and done.
For programs like UConn and Michigan State who haven't historically built F4 and championship teams with wave after wave of top 10 talent, you're absolutely right that forcing an additional year of college out of those kinds of players is not to their advantage. However, I think it'd be great for CBB as a whole to have guys like Durant or Carmelo (or D-Rose had he not been ruled ineligible, which he probably would have been) play an additional year...or even NBA busts like Michael Beasley, who have added very little to the NBA but were immensely entertaining college players. CBB used to be so much better as a competitive product, and I'd like to see it get back to that point.i want to see games, but i have no idea what side i'm rooting for or who the winners or losers are in the whole thing. i actually don't mind the 1 and done at all. i think it benefits schools like UCONN who typically don't get those kids. it would allow schools like Kentucky to get a boatload of top players and force them to stay for 2 years instead of 1. i think it benefits schools like that much more than UCONN...
