    Start Ellerman (and Palo) on Senior Day

    The best time to let our bench seniors get their time on Senior Day is at the start of the game. Our first five minutes is unproductive even when we're playing well. Give Bubu and Tyler the spotlight of the starting announcement and put them on the floor at tip in place of Monte and Hogue. If they're a liability then replace them at the first dead ball. If they're holding their own, let them have their minutes.

    tl;dr Give them their spotlight and get it out of the way early.

    um no... and see bolded, we don't need to start in an even bigger hole than we normally do.

    And then when Niang comes in and scores a ton, it will help our all important "bench points" statistic.

    I doubt Bubu even sees a second of playing time.

    This happens often in high school. But the level of talent is like tee-ball to major league.

    As special as Sr day will be for Ejim, it will be equally as awkward for Bubu.

    Re: Start Ellerman (and Palo) on Senior Day

    WIN THE GAME #1...............let seniors play if the game is won. Too much riding on this one for seeding. If we were 13-15, fine play the bench guys. But this means too much to lose an opportunity for even 1 extra point.

    I don't think such a thing is possible.

    Re: Start Ellerman (and Palo) on Senior Day

    I go back and forth on this. i think the seniors deserve the recognition (and they DO get that with the framed jersey and stuff) as they all have worked hard in practice to make the team what it is, but it is about winning. Yes, would be GREAT to be up 20 with 2 mins to go and cycle them in (or cycle them out for a standing o), but I think even Ellerman knows that it's not about PT on senior day. Remember, he gets a NC ring too if we go that far, so seeding is what is needed now.

    Re: Start Ellerman (and Palo) on Senior Day

    This isn't high school. The number one goal is to win. And this is the type of opponent and game that Ellerman probably won't get 1 second of PT.
