    If your Fred, do you start Booze?

    Personally I dont know how he couldn't, especially after hearing how much Booze wants to come back and put the team on his shoulders for his final year.

    Heres my guess to the lineup assuming Dendy makes grades.
    G DG
    G Booze
    G Phillips
    F Ejim
    F Dendy or Jamie

    I know its a small lineup but i think it could work.

    First fatal flaw of a coach:

    Start a guy just because he "really" likes you.

    Re: If your Fred, do you start Booze?

    If a cheerleader said the same thing, should she start for the team too? Not saying he shouldn't be a starter, but you don't base it on passion. He has to be the best player for the starting position.

    Re: If your Fred, do you start Booze?

    I think you have to start JVB and Ejim right now. I still think Scotty is ahead of Booze too. My game 1 starter prediction is:

    DG
    Phillips
    Ejim
    JVB
    Dendy

    Insert SC if one of those is not there.


    This is very important:

    Re: If your Fred, do you start Booze?

    The way Boozer has handled everything going on so far, I feel that he has really put himself in a position to be a strong team leader. He definately has a team first attitude. Hopefully he can show Fred he has the talent to be that leader as a starter too.

    Re: If your Fred, do you start Booze?

    Yeah, I understand Booze is very enthusiastic about Fred and about being a Cyclone in general, but you can't start a kid on his great attitude alone. If that were the case I could start for the Cyclones...I bet he's one of the first off the bench though.

    Like this comment. We don't know anything about the recruits until we see them really play. Again, a lot of people thought last season's team wasn't NCAA team material but of course it wasn't

    Start the best 5. There is nothing wrong having a leader come in and be the 6th man as well.

    Re: If your Fred, do you start Booze?

    I just like the intensity and the spark that Booze provides for this team over what Scott does for us. If he continues to work on his shot there will be nothing that Scott has over him.
