I am pissed and I didn't play in that game.  Imagine how the players and coaches feel. This is going to be painful for VA Tech!

I know i am stating the obvious, but this guy isn't very bright. Just because an employee says it is OK to take the crab legs without paying for them doesn't change a thing. This would still be stealing genius.

I was sitting on the badger side of the stadium.  I was very impressed with the Badger fans that night.  They handled it quite well and were quite nice. In fact by the end of the game they were joking around with us.  I think they totally understood us keeping our feet firmly on the gas as long as we did, knowing the climate surrounding the tournament.   ​Maybe it was because my friends and I gave away the white Wisconsin towels that came with our seats.

I started reading this post and was thinking it was weird how much this sounds like MY Mom.  Then I looked at who wrote it and realized it was my Bro. UV for you sir!

Am I the only one that thinks we will end up having more attrition before fall, and it makes all of this moot? I am obviously not hoping for this for any of these young men but the chances are that we end up under the allotted 85 scholarships.  In my opinion, they wouldn't have "pushed him out" this early if there was any chance that he would get better and they were making room because of over-signing.  It seems to me that this has nothing to do with over-signing simply because it did happen this early.  It wouldn't have hurt to keep him on scholarship for another year if we were to have any more attrition between now and the fall and hope he gets better if there were a chance of that happening.  He could have used the facilities to do his PT and try to get back to 100%.  This is conjecture obviously but they probably saw something really bad and don't want him injuring it more.  We aren't sitting in August with 88-90 people on the roster.  It is April for crying out loud.  Kids get hurt between now and fall or get in trouble.  I see nothing wrong with having a contingency plan and deeming where the line for what is "out of hand" is part of why Urban makes the big bucks. 

If the NCAA wanted to stop this the solution is simple.  Make the limit 85 on signing day.  Then teams would be playing with 78 kids on their rosters regularly and possibly beating the crap out of them and making selfish decisions to keep them on the roster when they shouldn't.
