Should college players be able to be one and done?

  • Yes they should

    Players sometimes cant pay the full amount for the college and shouldn't have to go all 4 years for that reason, plenty of players have before them why not them , they could have the skill to play at a high level and maybe they need that challenge, so let them play, if things don't work out they could get a job.

  • Need those checks

    Get pro sports out of all colleges and universities The only real solution is to separate college sports from the pros. All pro sports should have the equivalent of minor leagues (like baseball) which are not affiliated with a university. Eliminate all sports scholarships. Each college/university would have athletic teams which are composed of students participating in an extra curricular activity (as they would drama, orchestra, debate, etc. Most athletes in the minor leagues would realize after a year or two that they can't make a living as a pro athlete, they would then decide to go to college or develop career skills. This type of system is a win for both universities which are now contaminated by pro sports and athletes who can give the pros a try. Ironically, March Madness would actually be more fun - all the teams would be amateurs with completely unpredictable results.

  • Its a free country.

    The way the rule is now is bad enough, making basketball players stay for more than one year would be even worse. It might be better for some of them to stay in college longer, yes, but academically and athletically, but that should be their decision. College is voluntary for everyone else, why would you discriminate against someone because they're super talented?

  • If it is their decision to move on

    Yes, college players should have the option to leave when the want. I say this because in reality the school makes large amounts of money from these students playing on their teams, but the student receives nothing. Yes they are able to attend school, but tuition is no where near what a college can make from a good player, not to mention notoriety.

  • Yes, it is their choice.

    Yes, college players should be able to be one and done, because they have to make a decision that is right for them. A college player who turns professional after one year can always use their earnings to return to college once their professional career is over. With professional sports, a person needs to earn a living while they can.

  • Yes. College athletes should be able to leave college when it is best for their situation.

    Yes. College players should not have to stay in school and risk injury in their respective sport just to appease the university. If the college sports program is concerned about losing athletes to the professional leagues, then they should outline this in the scholarship offers they make. This way, if the student athlete truly feels that they can "go pro" prior to their 4 year college tenure, they can take higher consideration prior to accepting the scholarship.

  • No One And Dones

    I do not believe this proposal is clear enough to really indicate what is meant, but it sounds like, could college players graduate in one year, which is what I'm reading. I do not believe that should be the case. College, for a bachelors degree, takes four years generally, and that's if you're lucky. Athlete or not, it takes the same amount of time.

  • College players need to finish school

    I think there should be a policy that college students finish college and have to have a degree before they can enter professional sports. Many sport stars find themselves bankrupt after they retire and they do not have an education to fall back on. I think education should come first, then fame and fortune next.

  • College players should not be able to be one and done.

    College players should not be able to be one and done. The one and done rule is one which allows college players to leave for the NBA after only one season. It is fact that many of these players after only one season in college do not do so well on or off the court. I think that they should be required to attend more college.

  • I feel that it doesn't benefit the players in the long run.

    While colleges are all about promoting new young players, veteran players who are in college for the long run are being overshadowed by these flashy new players and aren't getting the proper recognition they deserve at times. Also one and done is just promoting the fact that kids today don't need college if they are good at basketball, specifically. But its a false fantasy.
