Cronin: One and Done Rules "Hint at Racism"
From an interview with Matt Norlander of CBS Sports

Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin doesn't like the current system.

"It hints at racism," Cronin wrote in a text to CBS Sports. "Basketball players are black. Baseball predominantly white. Just how I see it. Why can one group be trusted to make decisions and the other is being regulated? No matter what the rules, people will make mistakes. That has been proven for both sports."

I always knew John Calipari was a racist.

He did say "Hint at racism". Either way I think he is wrong. MLB can bury their bad decisions deep in their minor league systems. That is not the case in the NBA where the Kwame Browns of the game are very public. To me that is why the rule exists in the NBA and not MLB. Regardless, the rule is utter BS and needs to be done away with.

Why does Cronin venture into a topic like this? No matter what his intent, some player/media type/coach/parent may read too much in it. Just Coach/recruit/win

I'm going to guess this only helps with recruiting.

What recruit would possibly be turned off by that statement? A baseball player?

Regardless, it's a short quote in a long article full of coach quotes in the middle of summer. It's a total non-issue.

Know the audience the comment is intended for.

It's probably not intended for guys on a message board.
