The worst thing about the whole situation is that now we IU fans cant look down upon Kentucky for being a bunch of cheaters.
I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.
Supposedly, the NBA is seriously considering making players stay for 2 years. I think it'd be great, but even if it passes, it won't be for a few more seasons.
I would make one change to that rule. If a player declares, but doesn't get drafted, he can still go to college. That's what this one year deal is really all about, serving as a wake-up call for the dozens of kids each year who were eschewing a free education for the pros when they actually had no shot whatsoever of playing in the league. How many kids lost their eligibility on unrealistic hoop dreams?
According to Terry Hutchens, Crean will likely hire Bennie Seltzer and Tim Buckley as assistant coaches. He has three open positions but no word on who the third coach may be. Seltzer is a Sampson disciple so that hire may not go over well in Bloomington. He did two years with Crean at Marquette though.
On the recruiting front, unofficial visits are scheduled to begin on Friday. No word on which recruits are planning to visit yet.Seltzer spent the past two years at Marquette. The nine seasons before that, he was on former IU coach Kelvin Sampson's staff at Oklahoma. The NCAA punished Oklahoma for making impermissible phone calls to recruits during Sampson's tenure, but IU said Seltzer was not involved in any of the infractions.
He also played four seasons for Sampson at Washington State.
