Heard someone on the radio say that "one and dones" are ruining college basketball for the fans because it's, essentially, a new team every year. It's getting harder and harder for anyone but the die hard fan to know the players, thus ruining it for the casual fan. I have to agree.
I can't agree with this. For 1 the NCAA is extremely competitive. Butler went to back to back championship games with no 1 and dones. Florida was a favorite last year with 7 seniors. Louie doesn't deal with a lot of 1 & dones and neither do msu, va, or Wisc. In fact, UK, Duke, UNC, and Kansas get the bulk of em' every year. But NCST took down a #1 seed this year. Wich St and VCU are dancing around the final 4 every year.
But as a fan of the game I like to see our entire roster fight for every second they play in a game. Regardless of their name or hype, they have to earn minutes, against talent equal to if not better than their own. Plus 1 & dones do not guarantee success. I know plenty of Duke fans that were happy to see Rivers go. Ucla has had nothing but failures with their pursuit of 1 & done success. Hell my own Wildcats got beat in the first round of the NIT by Robert Morris 2 years ago.
So as far as a competitive edge and value of the individual games, or the overall tournaments, I see no major impact of the 1 and done era.
