58 underclassmen declare for the draft. No wonder college basketball is so boring now.

An additional 17 international players declared for the draft. The underclassmen included 6 high schoolers. Players who have not hired agents can withdraw their names from the list as late as June 20. The wild thing about this is that there are only 58 total players chosen in the draft.

If you were in ACC Country, you would LOVE college basketball. It's the best thing going IMO

Another idea is to introduce apes into the game somehow, that makes everything interesting. For a tech foul you should have to go for a minute in the ring with a giant ape. Just a suggestion.

scooter, that is a wonderful suggestion. I would pay ten thousand dollars for a ticket to an ape-match game.

Lets set up a new XBL league, where fouling is required (do away with the refs), and add another line past the 3 point line and call it a 5 point line. Also there would be a group of 3 judges at each game that give ratings on dunks. The better the rating, the more points you can get. So a high flying dunk over someones head could get your team 10 points!

Ohhh... and we DEFINITLY have to have the ape show... thats a must. Maybe each player has to wrestle an ape and if you win, you get controll of the ball 1st... none of this toss the ball into the air crap.

Good idea gio!

The ape idea is finally a way to make Jazz games interesting. Stockton says "cmon you stupid prick that was a foul"......"oh no no no not there HELP HELP HELP HELP"

Now that would get 100% ratings.

MFFL what is so wrong with having more players eligible than 57? (Minn has no pick!) I mean those woh don't get drafted don't just roll over and die. It's worth a shot to get a contract in the NBA, if not oh well go the CBA.

scooter - if you go into the draft, you can't back out once the draft has happened. If you don't get drafted, tough. No going to or returning to college basketball. That's what's so important about Cuban's suggestion - give the kids their eligibility back. The number of players who makes it from the minor basketball leagues to the NBA is very small. Plus, didn't the CBA fold last year?
