Sure the age limit stops the HSers, who lately havent even had the waiting period to produce, but NCAA is the huge winner. Just look at the hype that Greg Oden is creating or imagine if Bron was playing a year in college. It will also help to create more parity in college basketball. All of a sudden the very top players go to Duke and co and the guys that would have gone to them when those guys got drafted go to the next level teams. Basically Duke still gets the best players but they only stay for a year.

I would have preferred a 20 year old age limit, but I'll take a 19 year age limit and so will the NCAA. They benefit tremendously. This upcoming college season is very hyped and deservedly so. A lot of that has to do with the Florida and Kansas guys coming back, but a great deal of that has to do with the OSU and UNC classes and Durant and the like.
