Jason Whitlock on March Mediocrity

Jason Whitlock of Fox Sports has an interesting article on the NCAA basketball tournament which boils down to the fact that college basketball isn't any good now that the best players are going to the NBA as soon as possible.

The Kevin Garnetts of the world can't go directly from high school to the pros anymore, but the "one and done" crowd of O. J. Mayo, Michael Beasley, and Kevin Durant only dominate because the best upperclassmen are already in the NBA.

NCAA basketball has declined in recent years because the talent level has fallen off. Sooner or later, fan interest is going to go the way of the talent.

I know mine has.
