I pity the fans of programs that sign NBA-bound superstars such as John Wall and Derrick Rose for one year. At Wisconsin we've had the pleasure of watching point guard Trevon Hughes mature from promising freshman to senior star.

The Great Debate
It sounds as if Bill Hancock is as smart as he is nice. The BCS playoff system (SCORECARD, Jan. 11) may not be perfect, but it beats every alternative. At the end of a long season, college football has figured out how to get what most people consider the two best teams to play for the national championship. Sounds pretty reasonable to me.
The bowl system can't be changed because of tradition? No one seems to be lamenting the demise of leather helmets, single platoons, tees for kicking field goals, tearaway jerseys and whites-only SEC teams.
