RE: Campbell
Taylor has been killing it so he needs to keep starting right now. He was a monster the other day on both ends. Richmond will get his minutes. It's not who starts, but who finishes.

RE: Campbell
Don't think we will see a "first" and "second" unit. More likely starters will play 70% of the game and reserves about 30%. The key is to assure we have at least 3 starters on the court at all times if possible, and in dire circumstances 2.

No reason to hold any of our best players on the bench to lead the second team. We're not deep enough to do that. Throw the best we have together at the same time, then sub them out to keep their legs fresh but no more. Our rotation will likely be even tighter than last year. Elmore could make a huge difference if he could return with his size. After knee surgery, who knows?

That was my point as well during the original statement. There was a time during that bad stretch where Campbell went from 7 down to 8 up where we had Fornes, CaCock, Talley and Taylor all on the bench. Simply put, that CAN'T happen

RE: Campbell
I'm sorry, but we have a lot of new faces on this team. The only way to see what combinations can work is to try them. That needs to be done now when the season is young and well before conference play. I'm sure McGrath is taking notes. It may be his first HC job, but he does have a pedigree. I have some of the same concerns, but I will give him time to work it out.
Plus, expectations should not be as high as last year. This team is a work in progress. And I am hoping for positive improvement as the season goes. Just don't know if we will get to where some seem to think we should be. This may be more of a rebuilding, not a reloading year.

RE: Campbell
Most likely we will not get Elmore back til mid January. May be more worthwhile to redshirt him, depending on how the season is going.

Fair point, especially if he would be less than 100% at that time.

RE: Campbell
I want him to play. There's a lot of ball from mid January on and we could have a shot with 1 more big.

I think it really depends how far along he is. If he's not close to 100% at that point, why chance re-injury?

I tend to agree with you. I only want Elmore back if he is 100%. Would like to see him play for us for 3 more years. Sure would hate to have him come back too soon and reinjure himself. I could picture him Jeantal and Cacok on the floor at the same time. They will be nasty!
