has won its second straight national championship and third in four seasons for the conference! The Central will have slightly less bonus cash than previous seasons, but still, 15 NT games isn't too shabby. There are 3 openings to consider:
Johnson C. Smith
- 5 open scholarships to use. There are some pretty nice pieces on which to build: McNevin
is growing in the right places, Skeete
is growing well even with poor WE, and Pilkington
has 3 seasons remaining and really solidifies any post defense. A fine opportunity to build a winner!
- 3 open scholarships to use to find a PG, but, with that, this team could challenge for the NT. Sure, there's a stink rising off of Mark Westerberg
and Walter Vest
that will have to be scoured from off the the team, but, once they are removed, the remaining players are all strong contributors.
- only 1 open scholarship, 6 rising seniors. You probably couldn't be blamed for thinking that it'd be best to wait one more season to let this roster sort of...you know...compost. However, wild cards like Reggie Carson
and the excellent improvement of Curtis Thompson
during his freshman season, mean that now might be the time to take over, ride those seniors, and start practicing the sets you want to run in the future.
