Dan Wolken from USA Today joined Andy and Jeff to discuss the NCAA's rule changes in college basketball. He said that while the changes were drastic and had the right idea, there are still a lot of issues with the idea of amateurism and how exactly the rules will be incorporated. A big part of the problem is the different entities having different goals - the NBA, NCAA and USA Basketball for instance all have different missions. He mentioned how the shoe companies have filled a lot of the void and that's an issue as well.
