    What would any school look like without OAD's? What would happen if there were no OAD's in the college game is that the programs who are successful now are the programs who would be successful without the OAD's. The top coaches would still get the best players available and would win natty's with them. It would still be college basketball and we would still be fans. How much did college baseball miss Bryce Harper? The answer is none whatsoever. The same will be for college basketball when the decision is made. I will still be a Duke fan just like I have for the last 55 years or so and if you really are a loyal fan of the program of your choice so will you. I know my post is not in line with the thread but the title is also misleading. If there were no OAD's now in college basketball a lot of kids would not even be playing the game and those players mentioned for UK and Duke would have gone else where.

    That would be one heck of a game. Make it a 7 game series and you can take me right then and there. That would be incredible to watch.

    most of them are UL posers
    sadly some of them are UK fans stuck in the 70's
    they are like the people that hated the "horseless carriage"

    Kentucky would probably be the best shooting team in the history of cbb. Ulis, Murray, Booker, monk, Kat, etc.

    RR is funny. We want players to stay four years, but we don't allow players to develop.

    I've heard this topic discussed before. It's very unlikely that all the top players in each class would all go to the same schools if they knew they would be splitting time with the top guys from previous classes. Still, a very impressive look at the talent Duke and UK have gone through.
