Hate to break it to you man, but the age of having guys stick around for 4 years, and coaches for 30 is most likely dead.The NFL lost me about 10 years ago. I gave up on the NBA before that when Latrell Sprewell said something to the effect of "How the hell am I supposed to feed my family on 14 million a year"? Baseball is losing me because Harper, Soto, etc. all took the money and ran. Don't get me started on Ohtani. If we start having to reshape and rebuild the roster every year college basketball then Mason will lose me. I'm holding out hope that qualities like loyalty, honor, and commitment aren't dying. Time, as always, will tell.
There might be some adjustment once the free covid year guys dwindle but otherwise this is the new normal for college hoops.
The good news and bad news is that every year can be good or bad with the drop of a button. A roster rebuild could lead to great things, or it could lead to nothing.
