What??? UNC still making the Dance after being blown out by VA and Syracuse? Oh well, their first-round elimination will give the team more time to attend some reading classes. How can a school recruit athletes who read at a 3rd or 4th grade reading level? Only if it's about winning, I guess, while the coach, administration, conference, and NCAA look the other way. We need an NBA developmental league for these 'kids' rather than have them make a mockery of the college game. These 1-and-done basketball factories (UNC, KY, Texas, etc.) need to become history. Where is the NCAA, you ask? Hiding behind the TV contracts and the March Madness revenue machine. All at the expense of the young men allowed to 'job the system'.
