    Not to change the subject, but who are we still in on (besides Burnett)? Cardet? Podz? Any big man names?

    Jahlil Okafor had/has a much more developed offensive game. But then again, Kofi is a better defender/rebounder.

    I think JeffJ used to say a good coach takes a player on a official who was positive early playing time was his most important factor and convinces him that being a part of a winning team or development under great players is by the end of a visit.

    Poll Update: Starting 5

    I think there's going to be a difference between the starting 5 for the first game and the last... I think this team is way more talented/experienced then when Ayo started as a frosh. But I may be undervaluing Miller there.
