Happy Thursday, ‘Nova Nation! As subpoenas start to go out (have fun Oklahoma State!), the NCAA took action by creating a committee to clean up college basketball recruiting.

And it’s as laughable as you probably thought. First of all, several ADs are on the panel (they should have known and/or overlooked this to begin with), former players (old enough to have not lived through anything close to what’s happening now), and two coaches (who if they were cheating the system, weren’t doing it well enough).

Keep doing you, NCAA.

And now, the “news.”

UCLA without Lonzo Ball, Purdue without Caleb Swanigan among the teams trying to replace stars | ESPN
UCLA doesn't have Lonzo Ball anymore. Kentucky can't rely on De'Aaron Fox. And Kansas has the same issue without Wooden Award winner Frank Mason III. They aren't the only ones left with big shoes to fill as the season approaches. Villanova without Josh Hart? They'll be just fine.
