Clarence Trent transferring from Washington
Why is this news? Because it opens up a second scholarship for UW to possibly secure both Terrence Jones and he who shall not be named. Don't know if anyone cares anymore but I figured I'd post it.
Not sure I agree with him on some of these.
1. Abolish the NBA age limit - Agree on this one but don't think it'll happen. The NCAA makes too much money off one-and-dones like Durant and John Wall, while the NBA gets to see them hyped up for a year before their entrance.
2. Allow early entry players to return (and play) for school - Huh? Imagine Steve Francis coming back and playing for the Terps next season. Not a fan.
3. Pay stipend to players - Umm...no. The players receiving an education and an opportunity to get to the league is a stipend in itself. Plus, paying everyone the same stipend will do nothing to stop corruption in college basketball.
Thoughts from anyone else?
