Watching the Kty/Cornell game last night it struck me… The 'cats have 3 freshman who, no doubt, will never sniff a graduation ceremony. Most of the team seems like “hired hands” who are there for 1 year, win a few games, and cash in a big NBA contract.
Cornell never gets this far, but they’re all real students and will graduate. Looked a lot like our own sweet 16 run.
The bottom line is, if WE had Wall & Co. and rode them to the final 4, would you want that? Would you feel the same pride in the school? Would it be “worth it?” to have a line-up like that?
My vote is no… I want those things, but I want them the right way, and I’d rather have a program where a sweet 16 run is like a final 4 because it’s done the “right way”.
What are your thoughts???
