Next Season

Next season I am interested to see what starting lineup Painter throws out there. I have a pretty good feeling he is going to start the upperclassmen to start out with and we will see:

PG: RJ

SG: TJ

SF: Barlow

PF: Bird

C: Carroll

But am I the only one that says start the young guys? I am not even saying this because "the grass is greener", but I do think that a large part of the E'Twaun/JJ/Hummel success came from the experience they had. I know they were good. Heck this 2012 class probably has no chance of being as good talent wise, but if we start all 4 freshman I think that by there JR/SR years they could be a top 5 team in the nation. They have the unique opportunity to have a sum larger than the individual parts because their FIT is so good. They will be big, they will be physical, they will have a pass first PG, they will have a guy that can get his own shot, and they will play defense. I say start them from day one. It may make us barely worse in the short term, but could pay off with a final four long term IMO.
