09:01 AM ET 03.18 | There's concern inside Miami that the Hurricanes might lose juniors Reggie Johnson and Kenny Kadji to the NBA draft, which would leave Miami without any high-quality big men. NBA draft analyst Chris Monter and an NBA scout said it's hardly certain that either would be drafted. "They're not as good as they think they are," the scout said. "Reggie would have to be a center; he's too slow to play power forward. Kadji shoots OK but doesn't rebound enough. He???s soft."

"They're not as good as they think they are" ---- describes half the players who declare for the draft.

Kentucky should be barred from the tournament because their players aren't really student athletes as much as they are a farm team for the NBA. The NCAA should investigate.

I think, come March Madness, we should split the NCAA into 2 divisions:

The "Conference Champions Division" and ..
the "AAU/Pay-for-Play-One-and-Done" Division

That seems to be where we're headed at this point every year.
