    He and Marble are the two best options there and Marble may have to play a good amount of the 2 minutes. May will come in and contribute some hustle minutes, but he just isn't a threat to score night in and out, which is what you need at the 3. White has the ability to score from the most different spots on the court and will be a size mismatch for other threes.

    The key will be to play smart defense and not get caught sticking out an arm or leg.

    I see the starting line up being this when B1G play starts. I say when B1G starts becaue I think May will get a starting spot to start off becuase he is a senior (which I think is ok).

    1. Gessell
    2. Marble
    3/4. White
    3/4/5. McCabe
    4/5. Basabe

    With Woodbury and Olselani (sp) in early when we need the matchup

    I think those will be the 5 best players, too. White will have to play some 3 since Iowa's three best post players all play the power forward position.

    Thanks for the link. I found it interesting how Fran mentioned it will be a challenge for him to find the right amount of minutes for everyone. Considering the defections over the past few years, it is amazing to think about having more than 5-6 players who deserve more minutes than they are getting.

    I hope this isn't the case, because that is not a good Big 10 line up.

    Everytime I hear FM speak, I feel proud to have him as our coach. Been awhile since I could say that.

    Really? Seems like it was working quite well towards the end of last season plus their is an argument that our PG position has been upgraded. Educate us as to why it's not a good BIG10 lineup please.

    At this point, it puts our best 5 players on the floor at the same time.

    Somewhere Herby is going crazy... I think he was the one who kept saying White would end up playing the 3 spot.
