Nah...

If you're a pro ball prospect? Especially considering they are getting their education ON THE COURT by signing with a great team. A real tragedy is the guys who go to a team for money and not with a great coaching staff so that they can learn.

If these guys really wanted to be the best, they would realize certain staffs and programs offer more than others and even if they were only there one year, they could benefit.

Most of them want to play on the best team, but that's not always the best idea.

His job is to win titles and that is what he did with a SHIT program to start with. He built tradition out of nothing. Jim Calhoun made them great PLAYERS, he is not a professor so being blamed for shit in the classroom makes 0 sense when in fact he did always check up on the kids on his end

Kentucky still had like a 3.5 GPA on the championship team.

Of course. Just keep talking out yer ass and sucking the Uconn schlong. The program is the worst about academics and it started with Calhoun. Time to move on and improve, not make excuses.

Who is making excuses? I just posted saying its the University's fault, not the coach of the team's fault....
