    Somebody made the comment in another thread that the incoming freshmen will learn more in practice than they will in games. It occurred to me that our basketball program is now at a point where practices are going to be harder than most games. Once you get to that point, you have a very good team. We're going to roll a 9-10 man rotation at most teams. The guys coming off the bench would be starters at most of the schools we will be playing. This is going to be fun.

    Well, if its a rehash, so be it. It just occurred to me that this is the point at which good teams make that step up.
    And yeah, I'm excited about hoops. I'm desperate to support a winner, and there's no denying the hoops program is a winner.

    I can see it now. An Elite-8 game packed with CU faithful, millions of high school students tuning in across the country say "wow, I want to go to that school."

    Also brings the challenges of managing the talent correctly in terms of placement and minutes. Coaches say it's a great problem to have, and they're right, but many coaches have fallen because of it. Thankfully, this should be a team that doesn't have the attitude issues that certain talented teams struggle with.

    Recent quote from Dinwiddie in a tweet from one of the Colorado Springs Gazette's sportswriters:

    CO Springs: Sierra's Wesley Gordon drawing strong reviews with #Buffs. "He's got the most NBA talent on the team," Dinwiddie tells me.

    Is it possible that we are underrating the amount of talent on this team?

    Truly mindbogglng how much talent we have in the program today compared to the end of Patton/Bzedelik's early days. I don't think we are underrating the talent. We don't know much about the other talent except from practice reports.

    We know Dinwiddie is a top 15-20 pick next year. Scott/XJ are three year players that have 1st round potential if each one works on his weaknesses. Ski is a decent college player that has a future playing overseas at best because he isn't a PG. The rest of the players are mysteries till we see them in action.

    If Gordon is that talented, we are going to be very, very good next year. We would have 4/5 players with NBA potential playing in the starting lineup with Thomas, Jenkins, King, Fletcher, and Hopkins off the bench. Every single player on the bench would be a top 150 player minus King and he isn't a slouch... Incredible! Our bench, although young, will be more talented than most teams we face..

    Is it just a coincidence that all 4 of our bball frosh were on campus for the 1st summer session and sefo/gerhke were the only footballers here?

    The footballers other than the new qbs were told not to show up until this week b/c Coach Mac didn't want them getting burned out. So that was by design, and not a coincidence.
