The NBA is in the process of eliminating the “one and done” rule, and that is going to bring some championships back to teams like Wisconsin.

I couldn’t be happier with this news. You know who this helps the most? Schools who don’t currently recruit one and done athletes and instead opt to shoot for building a program over time.

You know who has done that and still beat up on the one and done schools? That’d be none other than my Wisconsin Badgers.

We don’t just rent these players for a year before they go to the NBA to make millions. No, we build a program from the ground up. We do it the right way, and we take players most schools wouldn’t pay any mind to.

Despite all of that, we still crush the competition (minus this past year). So, I’m happy the NBA is moving in this direction. I honestly couldn’t be more excited. Get the guys who don’t want to be in college out, and get them into the pros.

Leave college basketball to the kids who want to be there, and start handing us championship trophies.
