Larry Scott Not A Fan Of "One And Done"

USA TODAY Sports

Not that I can imagine anyone is really happy about the one and done rule, from the schools and coaches that invest resources into a kid that will hardly be there to the kids themselves who would prefer to skip the charade and go straight to the NBA.

Scott discussed his displeasure with the News Tribune:

It’s become clear that the fact that we’ve got student-athletes every year coming into our schools that don’t even make it through a full year of school. And, in many cases, if we’re honest, not going to classes second semester, I think that makes a mockery of being a student-athlete and I don’t like the way it taints athletes in other sports with some of the negative image.

While he doesn't outline a specific proposal, he does mention the way that other sports handle professional eligibility. Personally, I'd like to see the baseball model implemented or something very close to that, but having a proactive head of one of the major college conferences start to put this issue in his crosshairs may be a start in getting this incredibly unpopular rule changed.
