Having true point guards will make so much difference.  Just look at Scoonie Penn and Mike Conley to see how important it is.  Holtmann and company have done a great job playing without one for 2 seasons but now we have more pieces to be able to compete.  This team should be versatile, athletic, and more explosive.  This is going to be a fun season to watch.

I think Walker kwill start at the point. He's a veteran who knows our system and the players. Carton will get every chance to show what he can do but Walker has 2 years of college experience against quality competition. Luther is a good player. If his new baseline exceeds his better play last year then he will be a big part of the team.

Love Day's attitude about moving the ball in the 2nd half.  He is trying to build a team, not worry about his opponent's feelings.  This team has so much talent and coaches on both sides of the ball seems to be trying to maximize it.  There is no governor being placed on the O and the D is playing fast and with aggression.  When the D is locked in, running on them is all but impossible.  The O can attack any number of ways and will prove difficult to stop for an entire game.  This could be a team for the ages.  It is a lot of fun watching them grow.

When people ask what happened to the D last year, this is the answer.  Day replaced everyone except the great Larry Johnson.  Day also stated his D would be simple, play fast, and be aggressive.  That is what went wrong last year.  Too bad it cost us shot at the playoffs.  Excited about this year's D and always excited about Larry Johnson's D line.

Thad was a great coach who made us all proud.  If it weren't for his back, he would still be stalking the sidelines.  Just a fine man who ran a clean and successful program.  Life just isn't fair.

Add me to the list of those who love what Holtmann is doing.  Roster management is so critical to long term success.  Holtmann has a plan and is following it.  This season we add an experienced pg who has been with the team for a year and will be plug and play.  Next year it will be an experienced wing that is plug and play.  Really excited about where the program is going.

Day said something to the effect that he was born to be a HC.  Most of his life has been dedicated to getting where he is.  Of course he will make some mistakes but lets not act like Urban didn't make mistakes.  A football game moves fast with countless judgement calls being made.  No one gets them all right. Just because Day will get some wrong doesn't mean it will cost us a game.  It might, but it might not. 

I really appreciate the paragraph on how things could be better.  I refuse to gloss over that.  A very strong argument can be made that we underachieved after the NC.  We have recruited with Bama and Clemson without the results.  Maybe Day can correct that and maybe he can't but I choose to be optimistic that he can.  He inherited a great infrastructure, culture, and talent.  He made some very good coaching changes.  He has a great offensive mind and has other coaches who have great offensive minds with him.  He brought in terrific defensive coaches who will get us back to being a dominant D.  No reason we shouldn't be in the playoffs this season.  I look forward to seeing how it plays out.
