Golden
McRae
Richardson
Maymon
Stokes
Hubbs
Yemi

Is a very talented, and experienced (this does matter see this years UK team) rotation. IMO its a ball handler, point guard away from reaching its full potential. Obviously the level of PG you add dictates how good they can be. Chris Jones on this team and the sky is the limit for this team...add a freshman project and obviously a bit limited.

Chris Jones coming here. hadn't heard that.
Going by your displayed roster, adding Hubbs, Maymon and a good PG isn't going to make an SEC bottom feeder into an elite team.

Reread my post, I said it depends on what level of PG you add. I said if you add a Chris Jones then this team would be elite, if you add a project they'd struggle.

SEC bottom feeder? This team won't finish in the bottom Cal, here we go again.

We're last right now.
At worst we should be 1-2 right now.
From what I've seen, we can play offense or we can play defense.
Have yet to play both in the same game.

Maybe it is. But I think with a guy that can handle pressure, run the offense, and d up. Add him to the guys I named and yeah I think we could be elite.

Where we're we 3 games in last year, where did we finish? If the SEC schedule was 3 games long I'd agree, however it's not, so I strongly disagree.

You also think we'll lose today, and I don't lol, so I guess we'll know more in about 12 hours.

Never said we'd lose.
Don't put words in my fingers.

Seemed to insinuate it with the stats you were pointing out, said we'd lose by 4 iirc?

So what is your take on the game then, didn't mean to put words in your fingers lol.

Stated why I was giving those stats and also said we'd know how much weight we could put on these commentators dissing our defense using them on Saturday.
Take on game.
Anxious to see how the new line up works out.

Yeah, I think we will start seeing some 2nd round projections for McRae in 2013 in a couple weeks if he continues to average 20 pts per game. He's projected in several for the 2nd round for 2014, but I think he's working himself to move that projection up a year ealier.
