The talk about Washburn and Hunter's chances got me thinking in terms of how Washburn compares to Stone.  Stone had no shot, but was an assist machine.  Washburn has the better shot.  As a matter of fact, it is hard to believe that in his first two seasons he was the offensive star.  Defensively is a real toss up, I think.  Stone's length may give him the edge in my mind, but I don't know, Washburn was damned good.  Just a start of what should be an interesting discussion, I would think.  What say you?

but I'm guessing everyone by now has heard that Dominic Artis was the #1 JUCO player according to 247 Sports. Following behind him is Lee Moore at #22. Those two along with Omega & Morris means we are in more than great shape at the guard position.
Now..., will our slashers and middle men step up? Vint, Flaggert, Willms, & Caldwell have seen tough D1 play and know how to contribute. Winn & Touchet are familiar with the speed of the game by playing in the practice squad against 3 great SRs and 1 NBA bound player. That's not bad experience at all. Then there is the unknown game of Thomas & McSwiggan. Thomas should be good after 10 games, but McSwiggan will need to adjust to the speed of the game. I don't think his defense will be very good, but he should be able to light it up from the outside.

Everyone else like Romine, Venegas, Jones & White will need to learn as much as they can to be effective next year.

With that theory in mind, it means we have 8 players that can be effective immediately with the other two that have the talent to adapt quickly. The guard play should get us in the top 3 of the conference. The others will need to be decent players to get us to win the conf title and the conf tournament.

My 2 cents

Artis & Willms look to be locks for PG & C. Thomas, Winn, & Romine will fight for the PF position. All 3 are freshmen. The reason I put Romine there is because he can move very well and may have a jumper. The 3 position is crazy. Flaggert & McSwiggan have the body for it, but Moore & Morris have the game for it. Then there is SG. We all think the lock is Omega, but Morris & Moore are dead eye shooters. Not to mention Caldwell & Touchet will be back ups for both the PG & SG positions. The C position is covered with Willms, Vint, & Jones.
This statement is going to make you think I fell off my rocker. I think Winn starts at PF (at 1st), because the 1-3 positions can score and Winn will be needed for his tough rebounding. I think Winn will be a combo of Ced/Hunter.
1-Artis     6'1"
2-Omega 6'2"
3-Harris  6'4"
4-Winn    6'7"
5-Willms 7'1"

Not to mention a top 25 in the country bench (theoretically). I'm curious as to what you fellas think. Don't just give the line up, but I want to know why.

Scout’s Eye: Grading The Quarterbacks; Chris Whaley Shines At Rookie Camp

Friday, May 08, 2015 6:30 PM CDT
By Bryan Broaddus
Football Analyst/Scout@BryanBroaddus

IRVING, Texas – A handful of impressions from Friday’s practice at the Cowboys’ rookie minicamp:

"Of the two quarterbacks that worked on the opening day of camp, I liked what I observed from Jameill Showers over Brandon Bridge clearly from an accuracy standpoint. Both quarterbacks have tremendous arm strength, but I knew from studying their college film that there were snaps where the ball would be all over the place. It appeared that Showers did a better job of not only controlling his passes but his emotions as well. I had some concerns about his touch and it was clear that since his last college game it was something that he had worked on."

Time to look forward...

This is our current roster
Tevin Caldwell
Jake Flaggert
Omega Harris
Victor Mbachu ?
Earvin Morris
Trey Touchet
Hooper Vint
Matt Villms
Terry Winn
Lew Stalworth ?
Darnell Vandivort ?
Pual Thomas
Domenic Artis

Out of the list this is my starting 5
Omega Harris
Domenic Artis
Matt Willms
Earvin Morris
Hooper Vint

It will take some time for Paul Thomas and McSwiggan to get used to D1 ball.

It is obvious that some will have to Red shirt.
I don't think Darnell Vandivort, and Victor Mbachu will be back.
Lew Stalworth is also a questionmark.

Go Miners...
