I would imagine that if you pulled scholarships once that would alarm people, if you pulled a couple that would really turn people off.
Guys like Harrow and Wiltjer may not have had a good season, but there are about 300 division one programs that would take those two. Heck as an OSU fan, even though I don't think Wiltjer is all that good, I would love for him to come off the bench and play 10-15 minutes for the Bucks. UK fans have been spoiled by Cal getting freshman to come in and play at a high level, that isn't exactly what happens all the time. Freshman by and large are frustrating and are awful at times, that is why generally they have 3 more years to develop.
Your first sentence is very ignorant...
You must not follow CBB or CBB message boards very closely.
If you want to see a program that actually does pull schollies from players before they have exhausted their eligibility, check out ULs recent history in this arena.
Also, aren't you primarily a college football fan? You can't find a team in the top 25 that doesn't do the same thing every season for players that underperform. Even Saint Urban does it.
Painting it as only UK fans is pretty damn dumb, no offense.
