I see and agree with your point, but with the major upgrade in the front court, many of us are tasting the possibility of a very competitive team next year. I speak for myself only, but I do see us one shooting guard away from being a team that has a chance to be a 5-10 seed in the Tournament versus a best case scenario of being on the bubble at season's end.I definitely understand what you're saying, but here is an honest question did we think we were going to roll out a Big Ten championship lineup in year 2 with Ben. If that's the case, fans are becoming way too unrealistic. We are a fast fix type program. We have to grow, develop and build for us to be successful. Once we change the narrative of this program, I can understand those expectations. For me personally, I don't expect an upper half of the Big Ten finish but I think it is definitely realistic of these guys to develop similar chemistry to what they had last year. I like the versatility on both sides of the ball
I don't think anyone agrees with throwing scholarships out and hoping, but a second perimeter scoring option is still a glaring weakness. Being so close but an obvious piece of the puzzle short is enticing and frustrating at the same time.
