He doesn’t get the job. Does Harvard then tell him...”sorry, you can’t return “? Of course not. The NCAA rule was unnecessarily punitive to the athletes.

That is a Horrible example.

Care to expand?


A couple of flaws with this analogy

-Harvard isn’t capped at the amount of scholarships they can produce.

-Harvard wouldn’t have to rearrange its whole class because that person decides to return to school.

What are the criteria for "elite status"? Seems like a recipe for controversy. One kid is "elite" and gets an agent. Another kid is playing better but doesn't have an agent. Agents being agents, they will work their way into the good graces of the near elite level kids creating more controversy. Might be easier to have some kind of agent standards complete with a clearinghouse listing all of the qualified agents and then let all the kids have agents.

a school will likely always find a roster spot for a kid with border line NBA talent.


Of course most will but in many cases someone will be a victim, last minute renege on scholarship? It was interesting to see Coach Cal raise this very point last night on Sportscenter. Convinced me I was wrong about it since I never agree with him. lol
