I agree that the prior system wasn't equitable to athletes; however, the analogy to regular students would allow for 4 transfers in 4 years (though the way most schools screw students on transfer of credits would likely mean that student wouldn't graduate in that period). I was referring more to the notion of holding the schools and athletic programs accountable for ensuring a reasonable number of these athletes graduate. Most will not become NBA or Euro-level professionals, and many that do will have very brief careers. Seems to me its going to turn into another way that the system takes advantage of these young adults. If the last year has taught us anything about college basketball, it is that the interests of the kids is not paramount. Making money is. Why keep up the charade? Just pay them already.
