It won't be destroyed. Clean it up. Like Frank says the vast majority of college fans come for the name on the front of the jersey.

It undermines the whole concept of amateur athletics and parity on the recruiting trail. It's hard enough recruiting against teams with nonstop exposure and consistent trips to the dance, let alone when they're allowed to bid on players or offer incentives other programs can't. It's a business in the eyes of the school but the NCAA doesn't want it to be for the players - time to hold everyone to equal standards (ideally in FB as well).

I get what your saying. I donít feel that Basketball one football have been amateur athletics for years now.
But I donít feel like itís ruined March madness.
Damn check out the last 5 years final fours, one team that made a Cinderella run to the final four. And in some cases (butler) to the final.

Because you only need 2-5 superstars in basketball, it is much easier to pay a small number of players and keep it secret versus football. The one and done rule also makes it easier to cheat as well as the player and the school only have to keep the payments under wrap for about 9 months. If a freshman superstar is ruled ineligible in April, who cares. The school says it knew nothing about the payment and fires some assistant coach.

So how many did we have when we beat them?

To all of the people that cry when a player goes out of state, this explains some of the reasons why. With the taint from Lamont Evans, and the fact that we are not a Duke, Kansas, UNC or UK, we have to avoid even the hint of impropriety.

In a knockout tournament where itís one and done anything can happen.
Look at the last couple tourneys thereís been a 7 or higher seed make the final four the last 5 years.
Doesnít mean we are better programs just beat them in that game.

Why I like the way football does it better and would hate if they expanded the playoff.
Going through the SEC undefeated should have a much bigger prize than just advancing to a playoff.
Why I also enjoy european soccers format. Play everyone twice and at the end of a grueling season the team with the best record is the Champ.

Sorry to contribute to derailing the thread, but the CFP absolutely needs to be expanded. How does it make sense that a team is automatically in the "semi-final" in the first "round"?
