Cremo nichols leave...

Recommended Posts

Not sure Cremo and Nichols knew this would happen, but they face each other Sunday at the championship game of the Advocate Invitational at Disney World as they both won semi-final games today.  Don't  see them on the court at same time too much as their minutes have dwindled.

Giants are on in Dublin. Keep me posted on the other games

I left just before halftime. Nichols is so talented but too bad he had too many issues going on mentally/emotionally to use that talent here.

Thanks for sharing. Interesting article. While it sucks we lost those 2 stars, I still like the rule as it is written. D1 college athletics are really only about 2 things:

1. Education for the players. It might be athletic education to play at the next level, or it might be traditional education to get a good job after school.

2. Marketing for the university. Exposure increasing the value of a degree along with school spirit for students and alumni.


That's it. The scholarships are business agreements/contracts though, and there needs to be some teeth. The current rules have that. Get a degree at the institution you are at, then transfer without penalty (same as with JUCO). Want to break your scholarship contract without a degree? You are forced to sit a year. Want to play as a walk-on and not accept scholarship money? Then be able to transfer without penalty. You have no contract.

It just makes sense for all involved.
