    I do not even think about it right now. Until we know who is staying and who our new players are I will not even guess. It is time for me to focus on Lobo baseball and Spring football.

    Why would Mathis red shirt? If anything, he expects to get more PT by proving himself to a new coach/staff.

    PG - Hunter, Clinton
    SG - Simons, Mathis
    SF - Jefferson, Kuiper, Uguak
    PF - Combs, Logwood
    C - Macdougall, Joe F.

    This is my optimistic roster, assuming we can nab the 2 recruits from this weekend.

    I know he said on Twitter he's in and stuff but if we sign the #1 scoring jc gaurd in the country there is no promise Mathis does actually stay

    If that's how it settles, that could be a decent line-up. Hope your crystal ball in right.

    But we need to pace ourselves - October is a long way away.

    For now, we need to get our guys watching the NHL playoffs to learn how to compete.

    I really like Kuipers defense and his shooting pre-injury. Would like to see him at the three and DJ at the 2 in the starting lineup. Harris, Simons, and Mathis would be a small 2nd unit but would surround Harris with shooters. I think you may see Uguak play some PF and hopefully pick up Combs (assuming Logwood is gone). I think it is realistic to expect a 50/50 split for Joe and CMAC. They both foul a lot.

    Has Harris decided to stay? If so, I would think he would flourish as a speed player. He could be a pleasant surprise if he can learn to hit the mid jumper. I liked his play this past year. Hope he stays.

    We need more shooters than Simons. I really hope it works out for Anthony, but there's plenty in flux so time will tell.

    Well, since this is just OP/ED thread I'll make my prediction based on what I hope happens:

    1. Harris stays and plays
    2. Jefferson
    3. Kuiper
    4. CMac
    5. Hunter
    6. Furstinger
    7. Mathis
    8. Simons
    9. Uguak
    10. Clinton
    11. Chandler
    12. Combs
    13. left open for Figueroa next year

    There are still plenty of minutes to go around and the second string PG position is likely up for grabs. I'd like to see Anthony develop into a PG with a lethal three point shot.

    All signs point to Harris being gone. Would like to get some final word on Mathis and Logwood, though. Also the other Neal recruits besides Sodom. I think Weir can easily replace Parks with a better juco or DI transfer. Chandler has good potential for a young big kid, though.

    I think Simons and Combs alone would give this team a totally different look. More hard-nosed, more athleticism.

    PG - Simons
    SG - Jefferson
    SF - Kuiper
    PF - Combs
    C - MacDougall

    Well I have confidence in CMAC, DJ, and Kuiper. Those guys will definitely pull their weight next year. Plugging in Simon and Combs I'll have to wait and see.

    I am not sold on Jefferson starting at the two yet. He has a lot to work on before I give him that spot. He is a diamond in the rough that still needs a lot of polishing. For that matter, each and every returnee will need to learn to play hard nosed defense before they rack up any favor with this coach, I believe. My hope is that Combs commits to the Lobos along with at least another 6-8 to 6-10 athletic big man that can play defense and run the floor. Lobos will be in trouble if they have to go with the foul prone bigs presently on the roster.

    I think the "foul prone bigs" you refer to will learn to avoid that as much with a better coach in what we have. Also it was MacDougall's first season back in D1, so there was that adjustment again. I love Connor's intensity and how aggressive he plays though and I think he'll flourish in Weir's system. Joe F. can also run the court well and I remember him getting rewarded a couple times last season with dunks on the break.

    Wasn't sure where to drop this but:

    Lobo freshman Damien Jefferson tweeted (on his locked account) "I'm right back like I never left" and pic of him in a Lobo jersey. #mwbb

    Interesting, I think we all thought it was possible but I did not realize he felt he had left.

    Roster as of Today
    1. Jordan Hunter, PG
    2. Troy Simons, OG
    3. Anthony Mathis, OG
    4. Damien Jefferson, OG/SF
    5. Dane Kuiper, SF
    6. Aher Uguak, SF
    7 Sam Logwood, PF
    8. Connor MacDougall, C
    9. Joe Furstinger, C

    Here's where we are. In my opinion we definitely need a point, Shaver would fit, no word yet. We also need a Weir power forward type: 6'7 215 or so.
