Well he should get a lot of playing time as the team will be real thin again next as they continue to rebuild. Someone tell me how many years does it take to rebuild?

It's a never-ending process when you jettison most of your team at the end of every season.

I love the talent that Coach K and staff are brining in. It will be great having a 6'6"guard who can run the point or play the 2 next year. Getting Van Dyke was a great get. There is a very good young core of players. A 12 win season is very much in play, and I felt that 15 would be the ceiling for this team. I love how they play, and as the team plays together more, and the staff keeps bringing in guys like Wright, Loveridge, and Van Dyke, the Runnin Utes will be back

Well if his only concern is to go to a place where there will be "lots of playing time" available then he is definately going to the right place.

Gonzaga and Washington did not offer, only Utah and WSU offered.

This is not a rebuilding year, not when you lose your leading scorer, assists, shot blocker, rebounder and three of your four best players. Utes will be sub .500 again next year. Not sure how many more years it will take Krystkowiak to achieve a winning record. Boylen's 69 - 60 record at Utah is starting to feel like the good 'ole days. Maybe U should bring him back, like BYU did with Anae. Maybe he wasn't so bad after all.

"three of your four best players" who are you counting as the best four, and what's your criteria CougFaninTX? You know, its a funny thing about statistics. Next year? There is going to be another leading scorer. Another leading shot blocker. Another player leading in assists. Weird how that works out. Even weirder? That is true with every team.

Well, I guess that's technically true. However many teams have guys coming back who were the leading scorer, rebounder, 3 pt. shooter ect. Then those guys get another crack at it, bringing to that season a lot of experience and a reputation as the teams leading scorer the prior year. It---umm--means something. To try to say that losing your leading scorer, rebounder, etc--doesn't count for much in college basketball is naive.
