As a UK fan, I have no love for the Bruins, but I think Lavin has gotten the shaft as far as fan support goes out there, and would have liked to have seen them go a litte further in their tourney. However, I'm glad they won't be taking a NCAA bid away from a team that is more deserving by having a better regular season.

I think this is a great thing for college basketball. No longer would coaches have to be concerned with recruiting a guy only to have him go to the NBA before he steps on campus - leaving recruiting in a lurch.
