Mike has it right: college bball needs another club. I'm really old and I witnessed the AFL's start in a similar situation: the reason that the Chiefs are in the NFL is because Lamar Hunt and others wouldn't accept the NFL's restrictive practices, started their own league and succeeded. Many of us wanted them not to join the NFL (as the AFC) when the NFL capitulated.
The NCAA would also give in, if Duke, KU, MU, U of A, Louisville, UK and (I am sure) many others created a new non-NCAA league. March Madness would become the new NIT.
I sure hope it happens.

You have to love these teammates - caring about each other and worrying more about the man than the game.

I get that, but at this point, I honestly don't care about vacated wins and records vs. this innocent young man's future.

If KU beats Villanova (yes, at home) without Dok, it would be ridiculous to drop them in the polls.

Agree, Dale. How is he not first team?

He did get it right: JH is great and it wasn't supposed to be close.

With the coaching change, I wonder if Carter Stanley will stay. He likely would have a fairer shot at playing now.

The LJW should give this a rest until something real occurs. But why would they stop this needless "reporting" given the ton of replies you guys have posted? That is all this reporter and the paper care about it: hits on the website and papers on porches.

We should all give it a rest - me included.

Long has Beaty's successor list picked out, I have to believe.
Must believe...

You cannot overstate what Coach Snyder has accomplished: K State was on the cover of SI for being far and away the worst football program (not just team...program) in the U.S.
This year does not detract from all that he has done.
