    “One-and-done has undermined the relationship of college basketball to the mission of higher education”. Ha ha ha ha ha.
    After UNCheat, the NCAA just needs to shut up about academics.

      They are disgusting. Deflect blame, protect their $$$$$$$$$$$$, and keep screwing over the kids. Make just enough good recommendations that it gets good pub, but does nothing to really get at the problems.

    • I haven’t been listening today. What’s the convo about?

      Mostly, it’s Vanetti being entertaining, but they talked some about the NCAA committee’s recommendations to “fix” college bball.

    So Cal’s a genius for trying to get Hagans and Maxey (sp?) to reclassify before the NCAA screws them out of being able to play at all, right?

    So UNCheats for years; but they want the ability to effectively end a college’s program? Five year ban is draconian.
    And, that idea of locking up a scholly for 4 years if the kid leaves for the NBA is ridiculous.

    I know he is a UofL fan, but I have always kind of liked Vanetti and think he is pretty funny. I listen to his afternoon show with Dwight Gooden on the drive home, and they say some pretty funny stuff. Vanetti reminds me of a good friend of mine (also a UofL fan).

      Yes, I like it when he’s on this show.

      Dwight Gooden? Hell’s bells, that dude’s a baseball player! I meant Dwight Witten. Coffee hasn’t kicked in yet!

      I saw on the UL board that they were trying to sign a recruit recently; but, they lost him to Miami. Somebody said, “the guy took one look at Katina Powell, and said….Oh hell naw”.

    I hope Tony and Dwight does 6-8 on WHAS for a long time.

      Agree – SO much better than Mandy Connell, who had that slot previously.

    Did they ever put up any video from when they roasted Matt?

    • Realme

      Not that I’ve heard, but I bet if they do it will be tame clips instead of the stuff the guys are talking about.

    So I have a hypothetical question that I would love to run by Matt and the boys, but I will start here. With the grad transfer rule, a kid that has completed his degree and used up his eligibility can transfer to another school for a 5th rule and get a graduate degree. What if Grayson Allen decided to transfer to Kentucky to play a 5th year under Cal. Would the fans boo him at Rupp? Would he be embraced? What if he led us to a national championship? What if he did this but still had a couple of questionable on-court episodes?

    I would have major mixed emotions on this one. If he was a model player and led us to a natty, that would be nice, but it would somehow feel tainted to me. But at the same time, it would be kind of fun to be rubbing it in the noses of the Duke fans – especially if it was this year and we were playing them in the first game. Even better if we met them in the tournament and knocked them out. I know, it would NEVER happen, but with a relatively slow period for sports, some fodder for some interesting discussions. πŸ™‚

      “With the grad transfer rule, a kid that has completed his degree and used up his eligibility can transfer to another school for a 5th rule ”

      That’s not how the grad transfer rule works. You only have 4 years of eligibility. you don’t get a 5th year to play ball. (exceptions for injury of course).
      the grad transfer rule are for juniors that graduate and play their “senior year of eligibility” at another school while they complete a graduate degree. they are a grad student but considered a senior athletically

    • RealCatsFan
      11:47 am April 25, 2018 Permalink

      Oh, OK jay, thanks for the correction. I guess I misunderstood how it works. So back it up a year and assume he leaves after his junior year. (still just as “gross”, according to RealMe. πŸ™‚ )

    • ukjaybrat
      11:48 am April 25, 2018 Permalink

      yeah you’re hypothetical is still valid (validly gross) just messed up the rule a bit.

  11. RealCatsFan
    11:49 am April 25, 2018 Permalink

    Yeah, we had to assume that the show would go off the rails with Tony Vanetti in the house – talking “hair islands”. πŸ™‚

    My kids used to love listening to the song Shannon is playing when we were out on our boat at Lake Cumberland – “Island in the Sun” by Weezer.

    Since Tony now has us on the subject of youth sports, one of my daughter’s teammates has a father who is absolutely over the top – Lavar Ball style. He nearly ran the middle school coach off, and now she is trying out for HS ball, and he is actually shopping around the schools in Oldham County to try to find the one that is the best “fit” for his kid. Ridiculous to let playing on a volleyball team drive your decision on what school to send your daughter, IMO. Academics should be driving that bus.
