You can tell me how great it works over and over again and I will tell you that for me that won't matter, I still won't enjoy watching it as much. College sports is supposed to be about taking student athletes with very strong athletic skill and using the process to better them as human beings and provide entertainment as well. I don't want a team with a majority of them being kids that screwed up high school so they had to go to some institution like Last Chance U to get a joke of a degree to make them eligible to play here for 1 or 2 years. I also don't want a bunch of kids that transferred because they weren't good enough or got in trouble somewhere else. Using these transfers to plug holes or to rebuild a roster in an emergency like last year is one thing. Making this the standard way of doing business will make me personally less of a fan.It was the ‘exception’ here for the last 50+ years. How did that work out
as far as NCAA wins goes?
Fred’s system works, his coaching works, his roster management works in a town not too distant, nor dissimilar, from Lincoln, except of course when it comes to historical basketball success.

Lament all you want...Royce White, Nader, McKay, Clyburn, Kane. A LOT of talent went through Ames in a short time...along with a lot of success that Nebraska has only dreamed about.
