Moore rides the bench as the 13th player until he proves he is worth more ?? What else do you do ?

Boom or bust! Now or never. Even if he shoots it well his minutes may still be capped because he doesnít have other skills really. Heís good for a heat check if he gets his head right. Otherwise heís a liability in Brannens system

Everyone on the team, aside from Jarron and Keith are unknowns. Even the coach is somewhat of an unknown. That is why I am as excited about this season as any I can remember. Be nice to switch it up and not try to win rock fights or out athlete teams.

Moore just flat out scared play basketball at this level. Brennan has team working hard in basic fundamental(dribbling) so maybe Moore finds himself. He just doesn't even look like a kid that we say should play in MAC

He played FB in HS if I remember correctly. But that doesn't necessarily translate to hoops. Everybody is gaga in their speculation about Mama and Prince. Let's wait and see what happens in the early games that don't count for much. If we can't tell which teams suck by then, it's us! We, as thread contributors, only are familiar with JC, Keith and Trevon. The rest is pure speculation. Let's not set our goals too high lest we be disappointed. If we are better than .500, we've succeeded (just not a very high bar). After the Virgin Islands, we can raise/lower our expectations. Brannen is the one who determines that. Gonna be an interesting year. I hope we are all elated by The Big Dance (and that we get a bid). Just being a realist.

On paper this best team since Kenyon Sr yr. I'll fire Brennan if they only .500 after 10 games

I hope you're right, but we're not playing many sub-150 or Div II teams like Cronin used to schedule any more. I think we'll know before 10 games whether or not this team gels and how our unknown quantity performs.

He was getting pushed around on the block last year, hopefully he gained some lower body strength, that is his biggest flaw imo
