Big Ten is looking pretty strong. Good shot at two teams in the 8, maybe three.

After watching 5 years of kids ball, 40 years of High School, college and NBA- I can honestly tell you I am more confused than ever about what is and isnt a foul, traveling , carrying and numerous other things. My kids play, but Im sure glad they arent good enough to get any attention from coaches, scouts or other sports industry vultures.

As for the guys leaving early, why shouldn't they? There's a payday for them and nothing wrong with making money. Just imagine if when a guy went on the walleye tour he was allowed to compete and win but for the first four years any prize money he won went strictly to his sponsors. They would feed him and give him a trailer to live in but that's it. And they would use his image to sell their products but he would get no say in how it was used and forfeit all rights to use those images himself after the four years was up. Oh, and all the tours would be under the same rules so that if you wanted to buck the system you could only fish in local events. Seems a bit unfair to me.
Nobody is forcing them to play. Half of them would be or will end up in prison if not for B-ball. They are getting a sweet deal in my opinion.

Have any facts to back up your prison claim or are you simply buying in to stereotypes?

And of course everyone has a right to their opinion. I only read that it was your opinion that they were getting a sweet deal. As to jail time, didn't think that was presented as an opinion. That's my opinion.

Is it too much to ask how you formed your opinion? You seem very sensitive to being asked. Opinions based on facts almost always lends itself to credibility.

Prove my opinion wrong....... That should keep you busy.

MSU fan, a couple posts were deleted where Sportdog reacted fairly aggressively. He didn't like me calling him out for evidence to support his claim. I guess we can interpret that however we wish.
