No harm in starting some talk this early. And, if things go the way we expect them to, then next season could be a very interesting season featuring a team that doesn't resemble this one at all. Assuming that Taylor goes pro (very likely), and that Ridley doesn't get a redshirt (don't think he even wants one), this is what the lineup likely looks like:
F- Allen (maybe)
Maybe Jones starts over Yancy, or maybe Mack finds his way into the lineup, but that roster is young, is small, and is guard heavy. Not a great combo for playing in the Big XII. Who else is on our radar? Any transfers or Juco guys? We could use some muscle, and we could use another guy who's ready to play immediately. Hope we get that.
We'd better appreciate this year while it's still here, because we lose a ton of big time players (Lammert, Taylor, Felix, Ibeh, and Ridley) after this season ends.
