    Sad State (CT) of Affairs for UCT

    Not only does UCT now pretty much admit they have screwed up by their trying to set the parameters of how they get back into the NCAA Tourney in 1213. Most interesting is that one of the guidelines will be to keep Calhoun away from the recruits. The bloom is off the rose guys, at least for the time being. Let's keep it what it is, a basketball factory that made money for the school AND the NCAA. As an academic institution, I beliebve ranked in the top 100 somewhere, it also needs some polishing up. Maybe the citizens of CT will feel it's time to use more of their money on acadmeics than buying basketball trophies.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Sad State (CT) of Affairs for UCT : yes Kenney, your "acadmeics" background should pave the way for uconn...   I hate the graduation rate BS because the kids who leave early for the NBA are counted as negatives.  How on Earth could someone who leaves after his soph year and goes to the NBA and makes $6M a year be considered a failure and a negative point to Uconn/Calhoun?  Something is wrong with this picture.  As for too many texts,  big deal... everyone does it but you go after the national champs to make a point.

    Donnnn, the initial penalties were imposed against UConn on Feb. 23, 2011, before last year's tournament even started. Therefore, "you go after the national champs to make a point" doesn't make sense because they weren't the champs until April.

    Donn

    for your information, those players who leave early and are in good academic standing do not count against the graduation rate.  Citation below:

    The NCAA does adjust APR, on a student-by-student basis, in two circumstances—when a player transfers to another school with a sufficiently high GPA, or leaves for a professional sports career while still in good academic standing. In the 2010–11 cycle, the NCAA granted nearly 700 APR adjustments in the latter category, out of a total of over 6,400 Division I teams. Nearly half of the adjustments were for baseball players.[2]

    One must remember that the NCAA still purports to care about academics not a player's future career in or out of sports

    The point becomes donn is not to stock up on those players who will cost you in this regard. I actually respected your analysis on the issues unconnd has but these are the rules and are not changing anytime soon. In fact they will probably get tougher. One must adapt

    Good job by UCONN of hanging in for 30+ minutes against the 'Cuse today. It must have been tough after hearing the news that they won't be going to the Dance in 2013.
