Today in bad ideas, from John Solomon of

The item was No. 7 on a 10-point list for NCAA reform ideas that Pac-12 presidents and chancellors sent their Power Five colleagues last May.

7. Address the “one and done” phenomenon in men's basketball. If the National Basketball Association and its Players Association are unable to agree on raising the age limit for players, consider restoring the freshman ineligibility rule in men's basketball.

Several conference commissioners say it's time to consider making freshmen -- or at least some of them -- ineligible, again, for the first time since the NCAA rule changed in 1972.

Yes, according to Solomon the ACC and the Big 12 is also weighing this idea.

The one-and-done rule is a shambolic rule instilled by the NBA to protect its idiot executives who couldn't stop themselves from giving millions of dollars to teenagers.

In my opinion, something like this would only exacerbate the problem. Plus, how could anyone want to ban Silk Russell?
