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.

RE: New Men's Hoops Roster is Out
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.

Steve,

I like your optimism but historically you're over the top. Hopefully we finish 0.500 in the league.

RE: New Men's Hoops Roster is Out
I think we'll do better this year, addition through subtraction and yes more team oriented ball. I think Bond, Thompson, Jackson, Minnie and Thomas with Nobles and hopefully Green give us a good interchangeable 7. The true frosh will have to contribute right away though off the bench. Alot of strength and conditioning hopefully Nobles added some heft. I think King should redshirt but I expect some minutes from all the other frosh. We haven't had a true point since Talley graduated. I think Jackson will be a good one. Should be an entertaining and interesting season.

Sadly we won't learn much about the team until MAC play starts.

Why would you say that?

The OOC schedule is a good one. I think it is very competitive with a nice mix of teams from power conferences, mid-majors, etc.

I agree should be a shakedown cruise for Conference play

RE: New Men's Hoops Roster is Out
The team had an 8 week conditioning and I'm not sure the weights are accurate as posted on the roster, JTIV is he gained about 25 and is about 240, Ty Groce is up to about 205, Harris lost 5 pounds and should be 210, Jackson's weight should be about 178 and Kevin M. should be about 171. I'd be interested as to the results for Noble and Minnie. All of these are per Matt Cline's twitter account. The women's team also went through a similar 8 week conditioning class.

Kevin M. is in one of my classes. Seems nice enough.
