Not saying Morris will be like him, but it's tough to play as a Frosh in the B12 at the pg position. I think Bubu starts all season with both Naz and Morris spelling him.
    Chris Colvin also played for McDermott. Fred is much better at developing talent/putting his players in positions to be successful. See: Diante Garrett

    So frickin jealous of what they have in Ames. It's truly amazing what Fred has done coming in with 0 coaching experience.

    Agreed. I will take an experienced less talented 5th year RS Senior over a talented 1st year freshman(unless it's an ESPN top 25 recruit) any day.

    Bubu or Monte. I'm happy either way.

    This couldn't be further from the truth.

    Bubu is definitely a D1 player. He is not, however, a season long starter for a power 6 conference. He might be the 3rd worst player on this team when it comes to fitting in the system (that's not saying much, so don't get your panties in a wad when I say that). Offense is not exactly his strong suit. He doesn't appear to be a spot up shooter. His defense will be much better than Man Man's but this team relies on offense and MM gives us the better odds to win more important games.

    They way Bubu has played this year makes me feel this way too. My money is on him. At least to start the non-conference.

    If monte can unseat Bubu, that probably tells you that Monte is going to be very good

    Re: BREAKING: Maurice Jones not eligible

    I don't want Bubu starting just because he's a 5th year senior. If he's better than Monte before the season, then fine but if they're not starting Monte just because he's a freshman, that's ridiculous. There are talented freshman all over the country that start from day 1 and succeed.

    You probably said the same thing about Niang. "How is an undersized true freshman forward going to start and be productive in the Big 12?". I'd be more surprised to see Bubu start all year than see Morris start. Bubu will probably start right away but I see Morris starting later on.

    I'm amazed that you know that when he hasn't even had one college PRACTICE yet.

    All I'm saying is let's just damper expectations a bit. He may end up being the guy, but making statements like that is just absurd.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I get excited about incoming players, but I never make statements about freshman starting. If they earn it and deserve it he'll be starting. I'm just saying you can't honestly expect them to start from day 1.

    It's not like people are expecting him to come in and start over Pierre Jackson or some proven player. I'm one of the biggest Bubu supporters but Morris beating him out would not surprise me at all.

    Bubu will need to develop a long range shot.

    He has hit them in the past. It looks like the issue is in his head. Or he is going saving the long range shot for later in the year to catch teams off guard.

    To start the year I want a pg who doesnt turn the ball over and plays D. Thats it. That being said Bubu is a good security blanket, at least we have him just in case Monte needs some time. Nothing wrong with Bubu as a player, he doesnt hurt us with his handle and seems to play within himself.

    Palo's career 3 point percentage is 35.5% - better than Lucious or Babb.

    Does it really matter who starts? Both will get minutes and whoever does better will be on the floor when it matters.
