DWB Posted September 26, 2019 Report Share Posted September 26, 2019 After reading several threads on various topics, it's clear that we all have opinions on most, if not all the players...as we should. Some of the threads "evolved" into off topic comments, which isn't terminal, just the way it happens some times. So I'd like to start this "Depth" topic in order to let us all opine on any/all the players. Personally, I LOVE the depth, and perhaps best balance of talent and (for lack of a better word) "appropriate" players for the positions on the team. We're not asking a 6-7 forward, to play the 5 spot for the whole season like Morgan did (he may have been 6-8 in heels). We've got Joey, De'Ron, and Race & TJD if needed, that can play the 5. IMO TJD is better suited for the 4, but is talented enough to play the 5 if needed. Same thought process on the other 4 spots. We've got talented guys that are appropriate for their respective positions. The question is can CAM get them motivated enough to play the way he wants the game to be played. I think he can, because his recruits (for the most part) fit the type of value system, work ethic, and talent that he's looking for. (IMO) I'm a real believer in this team. We may not have a superstar (which is OK by me), but I think we have 11 guys that can play with anybody, if they play together and play smart. With the talent level being more balanced than past years, Archie has the luxury to subbing anytime he feels the need without a significant drop off in talent. Obviously, I could be completely wrong (wouldn't be the first or last time), but after watching IU bball for 50 years, you get a sense of what is good, bad, and ugly. So far, I'm seeing a lot of good in this team. And until they prove otherwise, that's my story and I'm sticking to it! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
