Florida out. Uconn had the better gameplan(at least made the best change after being down early)

Florida never found a rhythm, and made a 3 pointer on the opening possession and never made another one. They didnt win one on one battles getting owned in the paint and missing a few bunnies themselves. Uconn's guards were much better than Floridas, and that was the ball game right there

I wonder how many of Kentucky's top 7 in the rotation actually went to 1 class this semester.

You do realize that Connecticut has the worst graduation rate in the country for top teams right?

Calipari said the other day that the team has an average gpa of 3.4 (I think that's what it was). I know that doesn't mean the kids actually earned it, though. But let's be honest, there are some really easy 100-level courses available at most schools. They probably wouldn't even have to go to class to get those grades.

That's first semester only. I guarantee there are players on that team with a 0.0 GPA this semester.

My mistake, I read it as you thinking that Kentucky is the outlier in an otherwise solid NCAA platform. When, in reality, the whole system is broken and needs to be blown up.

I would tend to agree with you on that point. I was just pointing out that they, at the very least, cheated well enough during their first semester.

I mean look at Marquette. They GRADUATE kids who never do any work. I guess it is slightly more impressive for a state school, even as awful a school as Kentucky is, to get a team's GPA that high.

It's not like any of these kids have majors or any intention of completing their education at Kentucky and earning a degree anyway. It's not hard to load up on classes that are an insult to a second grader's intelligence and pad your GPA when that's the case.

"This is what happens when you ban us." Shabazz Napier

And that quote sums up everything that is wrong with major college sports. Instead of pointing out how hard they worked to improve their academic performance, Napier makes it sound like they were banned for no good reason. Having them against Kentucky in the final was poetic justice. I hope the union issue that has started at Northwestern explodes and causes the downfall of college athletics as we currently know it, because for far too many schools the players are no longer student athletes.

Just another in a long line of examples of people incapable of taking responsibility for their own actions.
