    How many games more would we have won if Staiger and Taylor had been on the roster this year?

    Does it really matter? How do we even know how good Staiger is?

    If we had Taylor back, I'd have voted for more if I could have.

    I love these polls. It should say:

    "Please make a complete guess as to what a team would do with a player in the mix who we really know nothing about other than what we saw in summer league."

    I think we could have done even better if Bill Brasky was on the team.

    If only we had a team of Bill Brasky, Chuck Norris, and Mike Ditka we could beat everyone 3 v 5.

    True...but if you add in two experienced guards to our team I think it's pretty easy to surmise we win a few more games.

    And we care because???:wink:


    I think at least 6. Mike Taylor is NBA talent. Lucca can launch. Both would have made the Wes J injury hurt a lot less.

    Two more experienced guards? Staiger is experienced because he played in the Cap City League? Wow

    Why doesn't the poll have any options for fewer wins?

    The guy wanted to create a thread and get feedback from those who want to partake. If you dont like it, stay out. Dont harass him for wanting to get some opinions on hypothetical wins. Tough crowd.

    Yep, apparently according to the NCAA he was playing in a league akin to the NBA. :eek:

    I think we would really only need Ditka.
    Unless of course he was going against a Hurricane named Ditka.

    Geez, is this even worth debating. Let's worry about the cards we're dealt with not "what ifs?"

    Jeez, it's not like 99% of the discussion on message boards isn't what ifs in the first place.

    Never can say Whitey, but I'd think about 3 more. But who knows.

    No doubt that Lucca and Mike would have meant wins in some of our games. We lack at this very moment someone to energize the last five minutes of the game - the most important part. We really have no Mike threat to drive through the lane. We have no consistent outside shooter like Lucca unless you count BP. If both had played, I would totally guessimate that we could have a shot at the NIT this year. With Jiri and Rashon leaving next year, NIT will still be a stretch next year.

    not saying that i disagree but if you want to avoid the what if crowd the message boards aren't exactly for you.

    I have full confidence in saying that Lucca would have been the most experienced basketball player on the court. In germany he was playing witht he best athletes in their country and the way McD talks, sounds like Lucca's basketball IQ is above everyone else.

    Why do people need to chime in when they dont like a topic?

    How about just ignore the thread if you dont like it. Some people might.
