Yah...this is how you do it! Schedules like this scare me especially after losing some senior leadership. But this is what you want to see...a coach who is not afraid to not only meet a challenge...

Seems like quite a bit of difference here between ranking sites but this is a good sign that someone sees his most recent play as a reason to move him up. It would be awesome if he can play 15+...

Not to mention we are not looking at wholesale defections like other programs are having to endure. Wichita had some big problems. It appears the roster likes Brannen for the most part so far. I...

The only big guy who we have who knows the system pretty well and was consistent last year is Vogt. Diara now has a year under his belt in the system but has been inconsistent for his short career. ...

For me it's more about finding a younger big or a guy that can sit one and play 2 (which might be hard to do). We need bigs for the future...preferably someone who can defend the 5 and rebound.

He’s going to have some competition anywhere he goes. But yah...maybe there is less of it somewhere. This late in the game most teams should have a few bigs on the roster

I don't have the name but it would make the most sense if we went after a HS big or a transfer that could sit one year out (if any will). I don't know what is left out there but it can't be too...

I think what some are forgetting is Brannen will be able to run his preferred system this year with more of his preferred players. Probably with some quality depth that will also allow the 94 ft...

Hell I hope Harvey starts...that would be a very good sign! I wouldn't mind seeing MAW backing up 2 positions (pg and sg). Actually he can back up 3 positions and come in for either Keith or Harvey...

I am not sure what you mean by "major contributions" from freshman but I was hoping to see at least one of them be 6th or 7th in the rotation by mid season. By default the worst they can do is 8th...

He certainly looked better 2nd half of the season. Mostly on D. He was very selective with 3's which he may not be able to do as easily now. He wasn't particularly good at finishing or 2 pt...

Yes Harvey looked better later on. He's a pretty good defender but he was brought here to score for the most part. If he can't score...he will only get the sub minutes for D when we need it. In...

He probably has the easiest path. Of the bigs Vogt may see a drop in minutes. Dou has been inconsistent in his career. Rap is coming into a new situation. Davenport doesn't figure to be a major...

If we can get 2 frosh in the top 7 in minutes we are going to be stacked with quality depth. 2 of the following players would have to be moved to 8th or 9th.

Williams
Dejulius
Vogt
Dou
Rap...

I expect the offense to run much different with Cumberland out of it. Even if MAW is not “pg”...he should still get chances to be top of key and work downhill where he was very effective finishing...

I agree about new comers early on and whichever frosh can pick it up like MAW did...even if it's just one of them...it will help a lot.

Rap isn't going to be in a starring role so I don't worry...

I think Brannen likes Vogt too much to drop his minutes that far but I could see it happening if Diara becomes a consistent player. That's a pretty big IF though

Pretty good breakdown. This should be Keith's year to shine but he is also one of the guys who gets winded a lot. I would probably lower his to the 27-28 range. I think I put him at 30 but that...
