Would have been a real boost to Ivy BB if he had chosen Harvard.

Ivy Presidents would have likely put the handcuffs on Ivy basketball as they've done with football. Not sure they'd be comfortable with "one and done". Doesn't do much for the brand.

100% correct. Had he chosen Harvard and left after 1 year, Prexies would vote to move to D3 in a matter of minutes.

Academic brand would never decline because of one and dones. You really think USNews uses that in their rankings criteria? Really? Move to D3 in a matter of minutes? Guess Tommy wasn't aware of that when he was enthusiastically recruiting this top athlete.

Most would agree it wouldn't decline with athletic scholarships, an 11th football game or post season play in football, but ........

NBA should move to the baseball model instead of one and done.

I understand that 0bserver (using Calvin's convention of "0" instead of "O") will take a break from this board for a while to absorb Harvard's loss to Yale and resulting failure to win a football co-championship. But surely he will want to come back to rub it in Mike James' face that Wendell Carter was never going to choose Harvard over Duke. Those two got into quite a internecine battle. It was fun to watch.

But he also keeps telling us that Amaker is Duke's basketball coach in waiting, so in that sense Amaker may not really have lost the battle yet.

Assuming he doesn't go 1 and done.
