Do you think the NCAA will let players take out loans from the NBA/Players Association? NCAA will never "profit share", but maybe let them get loans instead of straight up salary, or income from their likeness.The article mentioned him. Are people losing their minds, ITT?
I do think something will happen, and rather quickly with all the FBI stuff going on. I wouldn't oppose that option you mentioned. I'm just not real sure what the best course of action will be at this point. I think, regardless of the plan, there will always be more incentive to lure player x or y to a particular school. The playing field will never be level.Do you think the NCAA will let players take out loans from the NBA/Players Association?

Not everyone will qualify for the loans, but at least it will be a way to cut out/cut down on the stuff that's going on now.
Anyone read the second link from the OP?
GQ just did a great story about Calipari.
They refer to him as "the devil" and talks about telling someone to not go to mass with him.
" He took offense to the counter-argument that these young men should be gracious for a free education."
"I asked (Anthony) Davis about Calipari’s embrace of players like him, and why Calipari was so hated. Davis laughed. “To see now how college basketball’s been shaped after Cal, it’s funny,” Davis said. “Everyone’s trying to be one and done. Everyone wants to go to Kentucky and leave. Even the people who ripped on Cal for it, they’re trying to do it with their programs now! College basketball has started to take shape around the way that Cal is. It’s funny now when people try to say that. They’re using his tactics because it works.”"
