I'm trying to imagine if the shoe was on the other foot. What if Vandy had the No. 1 recruiting class four years in a row, but almost all of those recruits left for the NBA after the first year. And everyone knew they probably would when they committed. Would I be a little conflicted about it? I think I would. It would be great to be dominant year in and year out, but there would be a part of me that thought, "This is college. A traditional four year degree institution centered around academics. What the hell are we doing?" I know this can come off like jealousy since UK is a rival, but I can't imagine the current system extending for too much longer. An outsider would look at this consistent one year turnover within collegiate athletics and surely be appalled. I don't blame UK or the players. It is the NBA's rule. But something has to change. This is getting absurd.
