    Who plays?

    I know it's early and all, but I am wondering who is actually going to play for us, not just start. As I see it, these are the players who have the potential for playing time.

    Guards:
    Buckley
    Garrett
    Colvin
    Staiger
    Christopherson
    Boozer

    Forwards/Centers
    Brackins
    Gilstrap
    Dendy
    VanderBeaken
    Hamilton
    Pomlee

    I'm guessing Oliver, Dorr, and Palo, won't be playing (two are redshirting?) I have heard/read that the rest are in the mix, which is a good thing.

    That list is 12 players deep, I'm not sure how many coaches would work a 12 man rotation (if any, unless they were running some sort of gimmick system). So the question is, who probably won't be playing?

    I'm going to take the easy pick here and say Pomlee is out, down to 11. Does a 9 man rotation sound good? Who else won't be playing?

    Or am I completely off base and we are going to rotate 11 in?

    Re: Who plays?

    I don't think Pomlee or Boozer will get much playing time this year only because we are so deep, which is nice.

    Re: Who plays?

    The last few spots may end up being determined by who wants it more. A little competition can bring out great things.

    Re: Who plays?

    As I start to think about it, I think Colvin won't be playing that much.
    I think Boozer will play if he can hit his shot and continues to be a shot of energy.
    I think Staiger loses some time to Christopherson (he is just more complete then Staiger).

    The competition will be good. I have been reading so many comments on CF about how deep we are, not everyone is going to play.

    Ham-20min

    off the bench
    Colvin-20min

    I think 12 is too many to play. I don't think Pomlee and Boozer play much this year. They'll see a couple minutes here and there.

    Re: Who plays?

    I just can't see Colvin coming in as a freshman and getting a lot of minutes at the start. As others have said, I think he can work his way in, but we thought Buckley would do that also.
    Time will tell, and I won't be disappointed at all if he is starting by the time we enter league play, but I'm not convinced that will happen.

    Re: Who plays?

    We're not used to actually having 12 guys who could play. I'm sure more guys will see time early but I don't see more than 9 getting much time by the conference season.

    Re: Who plays?

    Having that much depth also creates great competition in practice. Getting a good look during the week in practice is very beneficial. I am excited for this b-ball season to get started!!
