One question, does anyone think we would have red shirted Wilcher or someone else had we known he would be cleared? I love the depth, but 12 is almost too many to rotate in.

Though I watch an average of 122 hours of film per week (I had to scale back because I am writing an Irish Broadway play with Edgecliff), I haven't seen much of Stanley. However, what I've seen leads me to believe he will be able to work himself low into the post and score, and also be a credible threat from 18 feet . I hope I'm wrong, but he also seemed to be heavy footed on defense, which will be problematic against the likes of Creighton and Nova. We don't need another poor post defender.

However, OSD always raves about how good he is during our moderator zoom meetings, so I am optimistic. Even if he isn't a major contributor, this is by far the deepest team X has had.

Good one Homer. Big Ben didn’t show much in his debut, but neither did Kunkel in his. My reliable inside source is still high on him!

I have a lot of optimism about Stanley. I've heard several reports during the preseason that he was one of the best players on the team. Tough to make your first start in a close game against a physical team with athleticism and length.
