07:24 AM ET 10.17 | Marcus Smart is back at Oklahoma State, which can look at his return as nothing less than a major coup. And the benefits keep coming. Smart's presence makes the Pokes better. And makes the program more visible. And makes the program more appealing to recruits. And Smart's decision, coach Travis Ford says, makes a statement about what's going on at OSU. "There's some excitement around the program and recruits feel that," Ford said. ... "The biggest thing is, you've got a guy who would have been a top-three pick in the NBA Draft, probably No. 2, and he decides to stay. So I think recruits and recruits' parents look at that and say, 'Hey, y'all must be doing something right over there, y'all must be treating them right for him to say I want to stay.' It's not like he didn't need the money or he's set."

Hope he doesn't end up regretting staying -- meaning he gets hurt.

I hope he stays all 4 years. The "he need to get paid" mindset has ruined CBB.
