This team only has three scholarship players who saw playing time last year.

I'm not worried. Lot of very good talent who practiced with the team last year are now eligible.

They aren't frosh or even JUCOs. They are legit D-I talent. I'm betting the farm on Minnie and maybe Jackson.

yup. whoever backs up Thompson in the middle is going to weigh 200 pounds. a lot of good MAC centers graduated/transferred after last year, but i'm sure there are more ready to take their place. Hopefully Thompson can stay out of foul trouble and give us 35 min/game.

I believe we'll actually be better than we were last year.

Me too. Or, at the very least, young and promising. I'm excited to see which of the young guards steps up to get early playing time. There should be some good competition.

We have a lot of experience but the good thing (I think) is only ONE senior.

This team is set for two seasons.

I've heard from a good source that part of the team's problem has been the lack of good leadership amongst the players. Some guys were more interested in their own stats and personal performance rather than the good of the team. Those players are now gone. I've also heard that Jackson is a much better leader. This is a good thing.

Yes, that seems to be the gist that this year's team will function much better as a team and will, probably, be much more complete.

BTW, SG might be like OT in FB. I want to see how this position plays out. Otherwise, a pretty solid collection of players across the board.
