    I actually see this lineup as pretty promising. Obviously with Burks, the outlook looks a lot brighter. If Burk's leaves for the NBA, then I think it would be accurate to say that this is an extremely athletic team. I hope Turks can live up, and Roberson can bulk up. Both these guys can create problems for opposing Pac-12 teams. Great season BUFFS!

    With Burks, we're a contender for the Pac 12 championship. Without him, I still think we're better than half the teams in the league.

    W/O Burks, then we will be basically completely reliant upon Brown. Hope he can deliver!

    It really was a great move by Boyle to get Brown in here, especially since we werent going to use that scholarship last year anyways.

    I believe the team will be fine and actually be better next year.

    PG- Dindwindle
    SG- Carlon Brown
    SF- Jeremy Adams
    PF- Roberson
    C- Tunks

    Backups
    Tomlinson, Sharpe, Booker, Dufault, Cain, Mills

    The team will be a better rebounding team.

    We'll be athletic and fun to watch next year. We'll see a roster that's closer to what Boyle wants in order to play his system. We'll defend better, rebound better, and take care of the ball better (more assists/ fewer turnovers).

    But I don't know if we'll have that guy who can take over the game when everything breaks down. To be really good, you have to be able to make a play when the other team is clicking and your team is in a funk. Do we have the kind of guy who can put the team on his back like Alec did at times this year and Cory did at times over his career? Finding that guy is probably the difference between 2011-12 being a building year instead of a rebuilding year.

    I think Carlon Brown will be able to step into that role nicely

    Were also going to have a lot more depth next year then this year. I think the post-Carmelo Nuggets have shown what a benifit this can be especially playing in an up tempo scheme.

    And lets not close the door on Burks yet...

    Look for Mills to red shirt next season if Tunks is healthy. Mills will benefit by that a lot and be more valuable down the road than spending next season spelling Tunks with little playing time... This also puts a year separation between the two and makes for better roster management continuity ... So we swap a backup sophomore for a 5th year senior the year after Tunks leaves ... a good investment by a wise coach.

    People keep forgetting that JUCO guy. If he regains his high school form... he is a scoring machine.
