    Buckley??????

    Does anyone agree that Buckley should be getting all of the minutes that Eikmeier is getting. At least from what i hear and see, Buckley is a way better athlete, and he has more of a body on him. I suppose next year he'll maybe play him more with Petersen and Haluska gone, but i would rather play him now for Eikmeier than wait til next year. Thoughts?

    Well, Gene, maybe Eik does more in practice than Buck. Just guessing.

    I disagree simply because sometimes Buckley tries to do too much, and he doesn't look very comfortable running the offense. Eikmeyer is struggling shooting the ball right now, but he's got a dang good basketball IQ and looks to have a grasp on the plays. They should continue splitting minutes.

    From what I understand, DB has been struggling with picking up on the plays, whereas Wes hasn't. GMAC has said on occasion that Wes' basketball IQ is very high.

    I like what Gmac is doing now with working them into the game depending on what the defense gives them...there is more to it then what you see as a fan I'm sure

    For what reason again exactly? Because he had lightning in a bottle with Fizer and Tinsley and had two awesome years and then had below average years without them?

    I'm just looking forward to the day that we don't rely on any true freshmen to come in and make real signifigant contributions.

    I'm aware its for football, but saying power conference didn't seem right considering conference USA has a history of putting some dang good teams in the tournament.

    Since we don't go to every practice, who are we to judge?
