Would Sam come back or is it time to move on?

I'd be surprised if they get an additional year.


This post is likely straight up poor sarcasm and cannot be taken seriously.

A few coaches have said that they're fighting for it and a few media outlets have proposed it as well.

There is 0 chance Sam would come back. He’s ready to move on to a pro career.

An article on ESPN said it’s something the NCAA will address.

This is the best thing for Sam. He needs to move on and make money for his career.

I understood the coaches to be fighting for the tournament to be rescheduled, not for additional eligibility.

It would not make sense for those teams that were projected to be in the tourney, to want teams that weren't, to get another shot at it, when simply playing the tournament solves the issue for those that earned it.


Go Aggies!

I doubt it will happen and doubt Sam even would come back but his #1 goal was to win an NCAA tourney game for the Aggies and after what he did last weekend that getting taken away stings for us but is probably devastating for him. I feel for him most of all.

It was talked about for spring sports only, not basketball.

Yeah at some point players want to get paid even if it isn't the NBA. Merrill would be leaving hundreds of thousands of dollars on the table and if he already has his degree I would also put it at zero that he would come back even with the option to do so.

You also got to look at his age too. Since he’s an RM he’s probably what, 24? Most guys going in the draft are 19.

Yeah and I believe he is married. Hard to tell your wife that id rather stay in college an extra year after graduation when we could make lots of money.

He'll make good money wherever he ends up. As much as I'd love him for another year, he needs to move on. He's already delivered way more than we could have expected.

I know we are pretty close to unanimous that even our Seniors could return, we know they wouldn't or shouldn't. But looks like the "life isn't always fair" adage might be impacting more than just winter sports. In a nut shell the 60% reduction of funds that member schools will be receiving because of March Madness cancellation, might cause seniors to have NO senior year in any spring sport.

Yeah that sucks especially for players that dont have an option to go pro. At least Merrill will be getting paid real soon. The track athletes won't be and will lose a year through no fault of their own.

That's a bunch of crap. The NCAA got insurance money for the tournament cancellation and saved money by cancelling the spring sports. They may not have come out with as much profit as years past, but I don’t buy this “whoa is us” routine.

Most reports are that the insurance money was only about 1/3 what they normally make from the NCAA tournament.

Yeah I don't think insurance money is paying out a billion dollars. Definitely unfair. While I admit I mostly only care about football and basketball, I have seen firsthand how hard other athletes pour into their sport with zero chance of a payday even if they are elite. Sad they'll lose a year of college eligibility.

I don't know that it's none of the expenses. A lot of money goes into getting ready for the tournament. They paid for logos and marketing materials. They had contracts in place with venues that they may not have been able to get out of. Money was spent. I also doubt that the expenses are 2/3 of normal revenue which would mean they still came out in the hole.

I had the share going to member institutions and conferences. Surely that's a huge expense savings
