Tomlinson, Brown, Dinwiddie, Roberson and Dufault
Sounds like The mayor is living up to the hype
Wow. Dinwiddie goes from PG to SF. no SHT. guess Fort Lewis doesn't have any big bangers?
kinda disappointed that Adams isn't in there.
Let the Dinwiddie Era begin. Not sure I'd trust that they're listed in order of position though. I think the first four are pretty flexibile when it comes to positions.
Which is pretty ****in awesome.
Looks like Dufault is back to the 5, Roberson at the 4 with three guards. I am guessing we will get to see quite a few lineups though. Besides Cain, I bet Mills is the only person who doesn't play.
Is this game available online?
T-Zisk and I have been talking about this on twitter... (@TZiskBuff and @Rumblinbuff :lol
It's kind-of a 4-guard look since 'Dre is considered a guard by this staff (weird... I definitely see an athletic 4 when I watch him play). It's certainly a 3-guard setup, with 2 points. Coach said earlier in the offseason that he likes to play more than one point at a time.
LOVE the multiple PG lineup. LOVE IT. Especially with our fastbreaking style.
This would be a good time to do an early analysis of the various members of the prestigious AllBuffs Preview Roundtable: http://www.allbuffs.com/showthread.php/68574-AllBuffs-Basketball-Season-Preview-Roundtable-Day-2
Not sure why, he isn't talented enough to start as it is, and right now he's not cleared to play with a concussion.
Hahah... very nicely done... but I did point out that Spencer would see plenty of minutes... just will depend on matchups. Honestly, nothing more overrated than a starting line up in basketball.
Absolutely... and with the option to sub in Booker and Sharpe? We are going to be flying down the court this year no doubt, hopefully we maintain some composure and keep our TOs limited... as Tad said, know when to attack, know when to make them play 35 seconds of D.
didn't know about the concussion, but I'm disappointed because I hoped he would have the talent to start.
It's not like Dre wasn't one of our 5 best players last year. Honestly, he's the guy I would have picked second after Alec by the last third of the season.
Convenient you posted that considering you're the only one to nail it. :lol:
I really hope SHT is starting by the end of the year. You've heard my spiel about how starting is overrated (and it's been touched on in this thread now), but we need his toughness out there to send a message from the start. We're going to run you, we're going to hit you, and you're at altitude. You might as well give up now bitches.
God, the thought of those two flying down the court with Dre & Brown on the wings and SHT pulling up the rear? Wow...
Could be protection against early foul trouble for Tunks just like Taddy did with Dre last year.
I'm still nervous about Dre's foul problems. That's something to watch in non-con play.
I'm guessing it will be a problem a few times, but now that he is showing up on NBA draft watch lists... perhaps all those ticky tacky calls will start going another way more often than not.
SHT might be left behind. Literally, on the wrong side of the court, left behind.
Ah, the old David Harrison play.
Only SHT will try at least.
Harrison perfected that play. From now on when a guy gets left behind he will have picked up a "harrison." Is this a stat we can track? Ken Pom threw out the "crazy uncle" in basketball prospectus this year, think we can get him to track harrison's for the 12/13 issue?
The lineup i expect will change alot before the start of conference play. Carlon Brown is probably the SF, the mayor will share ball handling duties with Nate Tomlinson.
I agree with your views and would like to subscribe to your publication.
I remember a Kansas game, and I want to say it was '05, in which Harrison didn't pass halfcourt for 3 or 4 straight possessions. My friend finally lost it and just started screaming "RUN FATASS! RUN!" There were Krispy Kreme jokes, everything. He was merciless. To this day if I want to piss him off I just mention Harrison's name.
I hate people who say "there are no positions in basketball". That said, with this team this year, there are no positions in basketball. Trying to identify who is playing what position is going to be damn near impossible at times, so it's best if people just not think about it. Actually, Rumblin' & TZI had a great discussion on this on twitter yesterday if anyone is interested in going back through their feeds.
Looks like adams hasn't been cleared for tonight

Waited 2 years guess I'll have to wait a lil longer
Gives us an opportunity to see more of Chen though. I'm kind of excited about him this year. He & Sharpe could be a lock-down duo on D for short periods of time. I just don't know if they'll be able to do much offensively.
I used to get the director to call "Cheesburger in Paradise" to 'tempt' Big Dave to the other end of the court. If he was having a good stretch of minutes, the free-throw call would be "can someone get Dave a cheesburger?" I think I hustled back more than he did in '04.
6 hrs before game time, Lets go Buffs.
