Sounds like the NCAA is going to pass a one-time transfer waiver so that any athlete in any sport can transfer without sitting out a year.

Itís a rare good move for them but wow is it also going to be chaos.

A number of universities are starting to have conversations, mostly still quiet ones, about not bringing students back in the Fall or having in person classes until 2021. Strong likelihood those conversations get a lot louder over the next month.

itís looking like september is the earliest possible time for things to go back to ďnormalĒ (assuming everyone follows quarantine guidelines until then which, uh, yeah)

i think a shorter college season (maybe conference only play plus tournaments followed by march madness) is the best case scenario

The mayor of New Orleans came out yesterday and said to scrap plans for anything happening in 2020 and plan for 2021, instead. And with tourism being the city's main thing, that's pretty telling.

Iíve seen some people float having college football in spring 2021 instead of this fall, wonder if they would try to run it concurrently with basketball if thatís the case. Football is obviously the bigger money maker.

Yeah I would think they'd just try to do both at the same time. They're going to do everything they possibly can to have a football season. I'm sure outdoor games in the Big Ten in like February 2021 will be fun.

College football probably skews pretty hard toward the "this is all overblown, it's just the flu, you pussies" crowd but it's still hard to imagine people being comfortable cramming into stadiums in big numbers until there's a vaccine.

I assume it would be something like April to June, but then you have the issue of only a month or two of rest before the Fall 2021 season begins. 24 games of D1 football in a calendar year is a lot and there will be a ton of injuries if they try it.

college football could benefit from the 'conference games only' model we're discussing for basketball here, get rid of some of the cupcake games (and further gently caress with small schools' academics I suppose, since they wouldn't kill the football team when the football team doesn't make money...) and let the brain splattering happen against conference opponents only. too bad the conferences are so bloated these days

of course we'd lose national treasures like that Chick-fil-A season opener game, but sacrifices must be made

the prognosticators would have lots of angry fun trying to figure out who the gently caress is good in both sports

Theyíll have to shift the next couple of seasons out as well otherwise, as you said, injuries and liability.

Green shouldn't be 1 over Cunningham but he's still easily the most high profile guy to go this route. Seems like it's only going to get more popular until the NBA finally lifts the age limit, though if I were him I would have gone to the NBL instead of the g-league. There are definitely some exposure/branding benefits to playing college but really if you can get paid for a year why not do it? Most of the guys who have haven't been hurt in terms of their draft stock much. If anything I think going overseas might actually be safer because if you underacheive you can just use the fact that you were playing against much older professionals to explain it away. If RJ Hampton had put up the numbers at KU that he did in the NBL he probably wouldn't be potential lottery pick right now.

I feel like the sad fact is that 90% or more of all potential lottery picks fall in drafts after playing a year in college. But maybe that's just because there has only been like one player at the college I root for that has elevated his stock in one year, and that person is Noted Freak Joel Embiid

i think itís fairly common for guys to play themselves from the top 10 to a no doubt top 3/first overall pick (zion, kat)

embiid was unprecedented but iíve also never seen another basketball player learn how to play basketball in real time on a game-by-game basis much less one learn that rapidly; the player he was opening night and the player he was by the time he hurt his back were totally different

i doubt iíll ever see it again

I mean there are only 13 lottery spots so yes more people will not get one than get one. There are definitely examples of guys boosting their stock in college like Zion last year or guys like Okongwu this year. KU has not been super great with highly regarded freshman though

For recency Devon Dotson was far better than I thought and now he leaves as a Junior and is hoping to be a second rounder. Quentin Grimes, on the other hand, went from top 10 to transferring and hoping against hope to make it to the G League.

There's some criticism on the ranking system in there, though, as Grimes does nothing particularly well.

Zion also seems like a special case cause not only did he make himself the #1 overall pick the exposure from being on national TV plus his playing style made him probably $100m in endorsement money once he declared. That's the only edge case that it seems like the G-League could never reproduce.

I think anyone who is a genuine college star is going to get way more exposure than the g-league guys, which impacts stuff like endorsements, though maybe not to the extent that it's worth the trouble of going to college and not getting paid for a year (at least officially), especially if you can get $500,000 like Green is. Lots of these guys are in contact with shoe companies in high school so they can still get some of that money, but the g-league isn't exactly getting a bunch of nationally televised prime time games, it's pretty obscure. This also isn't even the actual g-league, it's an academy type thing that will do some exhibitions against g-league teams and international teams, so I have no idea how much tv time these kids are going to get.

College could definitely compete with this if they let kids make money off their name and likeness while they're in school but I would guess it'll be a moot point in two or three years when they kill the one and done rule.

I was 12 when I made love for the first time, in Tropea, with a Roman girl who was 17 years old.





apparently the team Green/a few other guys will join will be a barnstorming team, playing exhibitions against G-League teams, "NBA Academies" whatever that means, and possibly international friendlies.

sounds a bit like the Junior Basketball Association (remember that?), but if the NBA is running it they'll actually put some oomph behind it instead of it being an ego-trip for one Lavar Ball. thing is, though, will anyone want to watch it?

Good hire! Was an assistant for Bruce Pearl and Greg Marshall on some of their best teams and has done an awesome job as head coach at East Tennessee State the last four years. He was high on my list for Iowa their last two coaching searches. Wake is a really tough job but I think he was one of the best candidates they could realistically land
