It's going to be interesting. Their 6, 7, 8 guys are all relative unknowns. Bohannon off of an injury (should be fine, but one never knows) and Patrick and Nunge. Evelyn started off slowly but slowly rounded into form. I have the most confidence that, overall, Bohannon will outplay him (even if not a "guarantee"). But Patrick and Jack outplaying Pemsl and Kriener is unliekly in my opinon. Kriener is one of my favorite players of the Fran era - an underrated try hard dude that actually DOES make a difference and not just gets plaudits for doing so despite not are awesome - and Pemsl had huge moments, both in play and leadership.
Toussaint - JBo - Ulis
Frederick/JBo - JBo/Frederick
Conor - PMAc - Perkins???
Weiskamp - PMac
Garza - Nunge - Josh
Fact is, replacing Evelyn, Pemsl, and Kriener with 3 unknown players is risky. Getting Bohannon back and having had Nunge on the team and McCaffery being a high recruit are all good things. That's how the best teams reload - with established guys and high recruits. But it's still a wonder. The 5 starters shoudl be very, very good. We SHOULD know what we'll get from Bohannon. if Patrick and Jack have what it takes, it will be a very, very exciting year.
The good thing is: if those 3 do come out and contribute at a high level, hopefully Fran won't feel pressured to use the freshmen. Murrays can redshirt if they want (ready to play RSSr year at age 35), and Ulis and Ogundele can play 0-10 mpg depending on the blowout or closeness. You can easily run a close game with almost exclusively 8 players.
