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

ATTENTION:

Major updates were made to the servers / software hosting redmen.com. There was also one significant change to the website this week to address keeping up with current standards and practices.

It has now become standard practice for all websites to be served as https (as opposed to the original http).


A couple of years ago I enabled https on the site as optional but as of today, the site is forcing https. Any link coming into the site should be automatically converted on the fly and you should not have to do anything on your end.

However if you do notice recent problems, please contact me directly via email: webmaster@redmen.com or via private message on the site.


Also if you have forgotten your username and/or password here are two links to address that (the links only work if you are not currently logged in):
