    No sour grapes...just stay confident and move on Brad. Development and production are the key metrics as we gain momentum...which we will.

    BLUF..we all know DMW is an excellent defender and we know it's not ideal for him to play against 4s all year. Can we all agree on that? We have 7 very good options at the 1-3 for 120 minutes....counting Hutch and Grand at 3. DMW will likely get 15 to 25 min each game to contribute. Wishing...

    Poll Update: Starting 5

    Ayo played his best when playing off ball last year. I can see all our 5 guards getting 20+ minutes... AC is probably the best distributor option we'll have. Unbelievable depth and we should be able to run opponents to exhaustion.

    We played 4 guard lineup a bit last year. Your lineup would be dangerous if trent , ayo and miller could all shoot over 35 % from 3 and play "big" on D. I expect we will see this and all kinds on Interesting lineups. I expect Young guys will get their minutes based on their Defense. We...

    Kind of ironic that before the game Saturday they had a special on the Decision....Lebron leaving Cleveland to "win" at Miami. And Lebron eventually went back home and got Cavs their first championship,...but alot of James jerseys were burned in mean time. Sooo.... Maybe that's the BP journey...

    Really it comes down to continuously developing young guys. We will have sustained success if we recruit and develop well. We should be top half of B10 every year if we do that consistently, regardless of who returns in a given year.

    I was surprised how many times we played 4 guard lineups last year (w Kofi), particularly at end of year.

    He really could be a very good coach...clearly he knows how to pull together pieces and make them better than sum of its parts! I think he and malcolm went on same diet.
