    Coach Cal has been and will continue to support student athletics that deserve his support like no other coach before him. Who else steps to the forefront with the facts and data to back his positions. From listening to Wildcat Basketball on a radio in 1951-52 season to today I’m just one of the millions of the Big Blue Nation think it would behoove all of us to go after NCAA to change their direction (Paralleling US Government) and return to original thinking and directions that they were first designed for not the bureaucracy they have become. President Roosevelt in early 1900’s was a proponent of establishing protections of football players from injuries, extending those protections to all sports is acceptable, with the advent of time, they like the federal government have decided they know what is best for all aspects of collegiate sports. Neither factual nor true goals as they are ONLY interested in their best interest not the athletes.

    If good enough any boy over 18 should be allowed to go directly to the Pros. By the same token any boy who accepts a grant in aid should be required to stay two years and their classes should be directed towards recieving an associate degree.

    Its nice to see the future stars of the world on our courts but what about the kids who have worked as hard but can’t afford the prep schools who’s only shot is taken by a future million dollar baby who wont need the money and for the most part will never finish college I say they stay an pay the school back for the opportunity they have been given or get out of the way let them go on an make room for the kid who wants to represent his school an will represent his state buy using his education And still provide good hard nose sporting events who the public will relate to at an even greater level also if these kids come in and go pro with out finishing school their should pay the school back out that big check they got by using the school as an agent to get it
