    Next Year

    A little early to be thinking about next year, especially since this year looks promising. However, I got to think about next year's lineup...

    Assuming Brackins declares, and Gilstrap does not get another year:

    GUARDS:
    1-2 Garrett 6'-4"
    1-2 Colvin 6'-3"
    1-2 Buckley 6'-2"
    1-2 Palu 6'-1"
    1-2 Phillips 6'-3"
    2-3 Boozer 6'-3"
    2-3 Staiger 6'-5"
    2-3 Christopherson 6'-3"
    2-3 Oliver 6'-6"
    2-3 Ejim 6'-6"

    POSTS:
    4 Dendy 6'-9"
    4 Dorr 6'-7"
    4-5 Pomlee 6'-8"
    5 Hamilton 6'-11"
    4-5 TBD?

    We seem impossibly deep at guard, and thin at post positions. Will there be transfers? will anyone redshirt? Our saving grace is that the posts listed will have the benefit of playing against Brackins in practice, and an uber-good Big XII this year.

    I have just taken a guess at what position people play - If I'm wrong let me know, but I don't intend to nitpick who can play a 3, but not a 2 etc.... you get the idea.

    this thread is not intended to whoop people into a frenzy - rather selfishly for those who know more about basketball to help me understand how we might play this lineup.

    Re: Next Year

    I was talking about that last night, we're definitely going to need another post player next year and possibly two. I don't feel great about Pomlee & Dorr seeing significant minutes. Pomlee still has a lot of work to do and Dorr is a little undersized and is more a scrapper anyway.

    Could Cato have an 18-year-old child out there somewhere? That's what we need!

    Re: Next Year

    Any chance we can land a dominant post player, a dynamic, athletic wing man and a gritty big man that has some outside range with the 3 scholarships that open up?

    Re: Next Year

    Per the Cyclone Report front page there is a 2011 post from Texas who is having second thoughts about his commitment to Utah. But that's 2011, maybe there is someone else down there we don't know.

    Re: Next Year

    Maybe we could get a sophomore or junior wing transfer that used to play at UNC since they lost their playing time to HB

    Re: Next Year

    We may have a good even special season this year, lets sit back and enjoy it before thinking ahead. When we had the run in 99-00 and 00-01 we thought the best time were ahead of us. Now 10 years later we are still trying to get back to the good times.

    Re: Next Year

    I think that still looks like a pretty good team. I think we could get plenty of points out of the 1-3s. Dendy and Hamilton will need to work on their conditioning and we definitely wouldn't be able to afford an injury between those two.

    Looks like Iowa State might be back to being a legit team!
