ESPN SportsNation has a bevy of polls about the impact of Nerlens Noel’s injury, asking fans whether or not Nerlens will come back to school (current results above), whether UK will make the tournament without him (below), where he’ll go in the draft if he goes, and the integrity of the one-and-done rule.
The results to the top poll about whether or not Nerlens should return to school are interesting to me. Those who voted in the state of Kentucky thought he should go to the draft more than the national average. Have we been conditioned to the Calipari Era in putting the player’s best interest first? Also, the results to the poll about the Cats making the tournament show that the majority of fans in the state still believe.
I’m curious to hear your responses to both questions in the comments section.
