This could be the greatest class since 1984 or 2003, or it could be a class littered with busts similar to the 2000 class. We just don't know.
The point is a lot of you are trying to compare how good a college team or college basketball is by how many guys go to the NBA or go high in the draft. Saying that this is a deep draft somehow equates into this past college season was a good one. I dont see it that way.
I said it before and I will say it again. The college game is down period. Has been for twenty years. It is all do to the kids jumping to the NBA early. I know the money is dang near impossible to pass up but the college game does suffer. If everyone would have passed on the NBA, next season would have been fantastic across the board. We would be talking about a final four consisting of UK, IU, Louisville, Ohio St., Kansas, Florida, Syracuse, Michigan, North Carolina, Duke, and NC St. Now with the defections the game comes crashing down.
How does UK lose its top 6 players and still be considered a Top 5 school heading into next season just based on the unproven recruits they have coming in? Pretty simple. The college game is down.
With all that being said I am gonna still watch it and enjoy it.
