    From the late Al McGuire..."he's an aircraft carrier, a space eater".

    The Big O was an expert at backing down his defender back in the day of the Cincinnati Royals.

    Actually, I do understand your point...and don't fully disagree, but just wanted to make a point that even if kids stay four years the game evolves, changes because of influences from other levels of the game.

    I think the game is constantly changing. Lots of factors like AAU and high school and obviously the pro game. Would the college game look different if kids HAD to stay four years....yes. Better is subjective and personal. What makes the 80's or 90's "good"? There's a fair amount of personal preference...right?

    Not sure that having kids stay four years would give you the result you ask for..."make the product better again". Sounds somewhat like MAGA. But it's just my opinion.

    Wasn't that partly because the player had to show that there was "hardship" involved as to why he wanted to leave?

    Haha...ok, I'll accept that description. I do remember listening to the radio as Jimmy Rayl scored 56 against Minnesota. And we didn't even live in Indiana. But my folks were both Indiana farm kids who went to IU...so Hoosier blood runs in my veins.

    Fair enough. I'm older (68)...just wanted to understand what was driving your opinion.

    Why? Just curious as to your reason? You have mentioned in other posts using your eligibility. Why is that sacred to you? Not slamming...just wanting to try and understand. Thanks.

    Not a risk taker, eh Scott. That's your right.

    Agreed. No reason we can't...and Allen is the guy to do it.

    Hey remember...he has no arm strength. LOL

    Ohio St. pregame thread...

    You have hit upon the biggest key factor, in my opinion....talent differential...and depth.
