    Has anyone noticed yet...?

    That if we go with a starting line-up of...

    Garrett
    Christopherson
    Phillips
    JVB
    Dendy

    ...that all of our players coming off the bench at this point would be freshmen? I could see us starting Ejim in one of those places just so that we do have somebody coming off the bench with experience, but man, that's pretty brutal. Hopefully we can get a JUCO or two yet this spring, now with Boozer off the table.

    Well, we're building for the future, so depth-wise, I kind of like it.

    It's hard to imagine how fired-up Hilton will be for a team that we know isn't likely to go to postseason play, but I think it will be.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Forgot to mention Bubu Palo although he's not a scholarship player...But still, he has about as much as experience as the freshman have.

    him and Oliver are redshirt-freshmen, so it's technically still true.

    Re: Has anyone noticed yet...?

    we should put something in Fred's contract about getting extra years because all of our players were seemingly driven off by the previous regime.

    Re: Has anyone noticed yet...?

    The OPs point makes getting a stud point guard in here a.s.a.p. a top priority.

    And when I mean stud, I mean one of the top in the nation. We all know how much beating a freshman point will take in our league. I almost feel sorry for whoever takes on that scholly and responsibility.

    Re: Has anyone noticed yet...?

    I'm actually kind of excited by having some young guys with potential coming off the bench. Hopefully that'll put some pressure on DG and Scotty, those guys are going to have to improve by leaps and bounds for us to have any chance of being competive. I don't necessarily mean improve in the stat column but they will both have to take on bigger roles and be leaders. I think thats what we lacked last year, a guy in the back court who could raise the play of the guys around him.
