I see where you are coming from. I 100 percent respect your point. As someone who played HS ball, I had teammates sit out practices and games with minor injuries and that bothered me of course. But it is completely different when your future is on the line and there are millions of dollars to be made. IMO, if you are a top-10 pick and not playing for a title or have nothing more to prove, I have no problem with a player sitting out.

I would say chances are slim of flipping Francis. Unless UNC gets hit with major NCAA sanctions from the pay-for-play scandal, I think he sticks with the Tar Heels.

Isaiah Prince is surely going to lock down that spot. If not, Thayer Munford will be there. Munford has earned as much praise from the coaches as anyone this spring.
