    Is 13 scholarships too many?

    I started thinking about this while reading about the Eikmeyer (sp?) transfer (good luck Wes! and Clinton too! Thanks for your efforts all season).

    Anyway, it just seems to me that 13 scholarship may be 1 or 2 too many. How many teams really play more than even 10 guys with significant minutes during the season? Not many that I can think of. It does seem like the last two guys off the bench are the guys who will end up transferring anyway to get more playing time.

    Thoughts?

    Interesting way to spread higher quality players around....

    It just seems like too many when everyone is in their first 2 years on the team.
    It is nice to have a few guys on scholarship that are great on the practice court and come in a role players their last couple years.

    If we did not have this many schoolies, we might have a worst problem for bodies than we do now. It appears that McD needs to get more athletic players in oprder to need only 11 schollies. Wuth 13, you have a chance toi grow them if they would only stay and put in the work.

    Looks to me these transfer players want to play more than 0-1 minutes per game. Could they have been any worse than some of the players we saw shoot this year? O thought Eik and Mann looked okay in the last few games.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, 3sus, Hallice, Deonte, Dustin, Abdel, Monte, Matt, and McKaT.

    Nowadays everyone wants to be the star of the team, no matter what level its at. Seems like there arent too many kids that are willing to sit the bench and be role players, at least on average teams. Whats wrong with sitting the bench as an underclassmen and earning your PT as a JR and SR?

    When we start winning, I think we will have more players willing to ride the pine in order to develop into a more regular contributer.

    Women's ball has 15 and they don't have to worry about a pro league to suck all their talent away after every season.

    I think 13 is a good number. It could probably be 12, but not much lower than that.

    Yeah, plus you've got Brackins with a good chance of leaving, so that's another schollie open too
