Great LA Times article re: one and done in bball

They weigh in on how it affected programs such as ours and Ohio States.  They mention it because of UCLA and USC's incoming freshman, OJ mayo and Kevin Love, are most like one year guys.

For the college programs, it's a curious problem. If star recruits play as well as expected, many may leave after only one season. If not, well, that probably means the team underachieved.

DJ gets some ink in there too.

I think the best quote was from Matta who said you absolutely can't pass up these kids, but you don't want to become a program where guys just come to "put in their time."
