    Big time college Basketball is about money and not about graduating. The kids are there to play basketball not get degrees. It is a minor league for Basketball, if the kid graduates....great. If not.....too bad

    I remember reading a few years ago the Cincinnati coach hadn't graduated anyone during his tenure there.

    At least I think it was Cincy. If not, my apologies to the Bearcats.
