There are a few posters who really seem to believe the end is near. The bottom is about to fall out. We have two serviceable bigs, GBJ is a disappointment(?), our backcourt are lilliputians, BYU is ready to take over (did they end up with Jab. Parker?)...
First, GBJ being a let down is either troll-talk, or mentally challenged delusion. Nuff said.
CALM DOWN. I confess, Moser was plan A, Davis was plan B, and we are well down the contingency list. Point being, Few has a plan. He has been here before. Judging from his past body of work, I'm guessing he'll manage to cobble some depth together for that front line. Coleman will add length to backcourt. More experience for Draino and Barnham will help too.
Back to DEPTH FOR THE FRONT LINE. Most coaches would KILL for that to be their penultimate deficiency to address. Look at Wichita St. last year. Their team was mostly freaking JUCO's, hardscrabble dudes working their tails off. I like Few's record here (I won't point out his misses, because I know a couple posters who will be happy to do that). I'd take another JP. How about Hernandez, or Reason, for some toughness and rebounding? We may not get a 7ft. skyscraper, but a rugged 6'6" 230lb enforcer rebounder? They're out there. Why are we writing off Edwards and Meikle as depth for this year. Who knows? Could Meikle contribute, right out of the gate, like Morrison or Mallon? Maybe. Edwards could possibly give effective spot duty, like KO did as a Frosh. He is the 28th rated center in this years national class. Not beyond the realm of possibility.
Future so bright, I need my SHADES.
