It would be awesome if it turned out to be true, but, that is way more than "just spitballing"...that is some genuine pie-in-the-sky dreaming is my guess.I’m not overly concerned with the ranking number but stats don’t lie on 5star kids on a roster and making final fours. With that said, if the market is shifting around you and these kids aren’t loyal, why do you show them any loyalty?
Perhaps we are all wrong and the teams competing for the title in the next few years will be the ones who don’t pony up massive deals to get kids. Maybe it is the programs who get solid players who will stick around 3 years or more. Those are the kids who are bigger and more mature who bully young “superstars” when tourney time comes around.
Purdue is about to get to see what it feels like to be Vanderbilt is my fear, and, I fear that being way more realistic than what you suggest unfortunately. Admittedly, I hope that I am wrong...and hope more so that you are somehow right...but, I would be lying if I said that I really bought into it.
