They would need to put asterisks by every player that got the extra year. Can you imagine all the school and national records that would be impacted by this one class got an additional year.

Re: On the bright side

If Quetta comes back there is a chance coach Smith could put a decent team on the court next year. Queta is a difference maker when heathy and a 1/2 Queta is huge upgrade from anybody else on this team down low. If however, he decides not to come back, I think we will be very mediocre.
