    Stalzer first off the bench for ski? Fascinating.

    I'm even more amazed that Tad is now going to employ a Power Forward and a Center.

    Lol please show me where I wrote that Stalzer will be the first to come off the bench for Ski. Hopkins can play both PG and SG.

    The last time I checked last year Boyle used a center.

    The way you wrote it, it appeared that you had Stalzer being the first SG off of the bench, so I can see how Snow made that mistake.

    As for your starting five, it's possible, but not until the end of the year. Tad won't start a true frosh at the beginning of the year unless it's an absolute no brainer. With Wes out there, it's not a no brainer for Thomas to start....yet.

    You may be right but Thomas brings more scoring to the lineup.

    The question, methinks, is what defense he brings to the lineup. There is a LOT of scoring in the starting guards and XJ/Scott.

    Yup- in Tad's post practice interview on rivals he said this:

    You will get on the court by playing good defense, rebounding and taking care of the ball. #TadBall

    in today's post-practice interview, he talked about how you only have so much time to practice, and you only have time to practice what you think is most important. He then just talked about how they spend so much time on their half court defense. #tadball

    Don't think you will see CU's offense improve all that much until the Frosh get the D down.

    You guys haven't been watching the practices they broadcast? Pickup games? After practice shoot arounds?

    PG - Dinwiddie, Talton, Hopkins
    SG - Booker, Jenkins, Stalzer
    SF - Johnson, Fletcher, King
    PF - Gordon, Thomas
    C - Scott, Mills

    Pretty sure this is the depth.
