    Bigger impact in 18-19?

    He struggled finding time on his prep team. I think people are being patient in that sense since his competition level steps up even further this year.

    18-19 depth

    I think we have two very capable 4-men. We maybe have one capable 5. I think that's where we need the depth and McVeigh isn't capable of helping there. He's a stretch 4 at best. And that's assuming he's better than Heimann. I'd agree on the defined positions to a point. At some point you just need body types. Is McVeigh a more skilled player than Borchardt? Certainly. Is it enough to overlook his physical shortcomings in playing a role outside his normal position(s)? IMO, no. Long story short....not sure he's a good enough shooter to warrant the lack of physicality at the 5.

    Harris due to his versatility. If we can truly play the point....it allows you to get creative with Watson and Allen off the ball.

    18-19 depth

    Of course..if they all bust. But I don't think it's likely that we go 0-4 (even 5 with Davis). And yes we're thin up front...but moreso at the 5. That's where we need the help the most and he wasn't going to help a lot there. Borchardt would've got more time there than him. Case in point, if McVeigh was playing serious minutes for us this year....something went wrong.

    Won’t miss Jack at all. With all 3 coming back, any potential role he had has evaporated also not worried too much about the two. Gill and Taylor were nice surprises and solid players last year. But let’s not make them into all conference guys. Between Amir, Thor, Thomas, Nana and even Palmer due to the flexibility of Roby and Copeland, I’m not worried at all about those minutes the spot that I am concerned about is dubys spot. Not that we can’t replace him but that we need someone better to push Jordy in the post I have no doubt Roby still starts, but until Jordy elevates his game AND proves he can stay on the floor for extended minutes without foul trouble, we need another capable post

    Wouldn’t count on it last year was pretty fluky in a number of areas.

    Clemson/ACC challenge

    Nebraska and Clemson are top 4/5 teams in each of their leagues illinois and Notre Dame will both be rated low in their leagues.

    Not sure it’s fair to compare stat lines at ODU to Nebraska. Small (sarcastic) step up in competition. What they do at their current schools will be more accurate

    Not arguing the merits of a neutral site game. I'm arguing adding more than necessary and more than our piers

    NBA Playoffs

    DIdn't think it was a charge. Don;t know how you can legitimately overturn it either. Block/charge calls remain the worst rule in sports

    Even if they do. Unnecessarily making the road harder. Not to mention the fact that we already lost one home game with the extra Big 10 schedule. This takes another away. 20 conference games (10 on the road) 1 Away Game vs. a Top 20 team 2 Home Games vs NCAA teams last year and probably NIT at least this year 1,possibly 2 Neutral Site games against P5 teams that won 20+ last year That's more than good enough. Just for reference, no Big 10 team played more than 5 P6 teams in their non-con last year. And that was with 2 more games to play. If we play USC and Texas Tech, we'll have 6 with a tougher conference schedule. There's nothing smart about that. As I mentioned before, there's a far better chance this game bites us then it does help us.

    Mixed Blessing? Lunchtime musing

    My issues with Jordy aren’t that he’s not Olajuwon or Mutombo. It’s that too often he thinks he is and tries doing too much on one side of the court and ends up needlessly turning it over or committing a stupid foul. If he embraces his role and plays efficiently, than he is an asset. If he continues to commit dumb fouls, miss layups, turn it over, then play a smaller more skilled lineup

    Thats a damn tough game too. Clemson returns quite a bit and added a good grad transfer

    Way too early Top 25

    They were better at the end of the year and they bring just about everyone back I wouldn’t have them in front of Maryland or Purdue but they’ll be much better

    Jones doesn’t concern me too much. Struggled to play on a bad Indiana team. Who is the grad transfer
