    This is absolutely correct. You also give yourself flexibility if you find a can't-miss prospect.
    Are you saying the coaching staff should limit themselves to 12? It's not a bad idea, but I'm not sure many coaches could resist the temptation to fill that 13th scholly to give them maximum depth.

    I'm suggesting the NCAA reduce the limit to 12. I realize that is highly unlikely to ever happen, so I guess in essence the only way that would work is for the coaching staff to limit themselves. If we have to start giving extra stipends to athletes across the board I suspect several sports (I'm looking at you, especially, women's basketball with your 15 'ships) may consider issuing fewer full scholarships.

    • Is there any effect on effectiveness of practices if a 13th scholarship guy is replaced by a walk-on?

        If JB had stayed and figured it out, then we could have had McFarlane at center and JB at PF.

          Well thank you for noticing my physical gifts. They aren't real apparent to the casual observer.

            • Brady Manek (6'9" 231 LB) forward out of OU in the portal. Averaged 10.8 / 5.0 / 0.8 / 1.0 points rebounds assists blocks last season. One year of eligibility remaining. I'd take him in a heartbeat! 42% / 38% / 77% field goal, three, free throw.

                  • Saw Sorrel Smith play AAU ball out here when he was in High school. I liked him a lot.

                    • Manek would be MY #1 if we could get him. He can play some center also when needed.
                      Outstanding stretch 4 !

                        Jody Adams never used her full alotment of scholarships at WSU. Her rosters were usually 11-13 players. Mostly 11 or 12. She told me once it was too hard to keep 15 players happy.

                        OTOH, Keitha Adams has pretty consistently used all of her 15 scholarships. I could see that if you developed and aggressive redshirt program. Otherwise it is just too many.

                        Jody had her issues, especially after she brought in Dana Eikenberg, who had trashed the SIU program when she was head coach there. But Jody was the all-time winningest coach at WSU both in number of wins 161 and winning percentage .583 (161-115).

                        Maybe something Keitha Adams should give some thought to.

                            You meant rebounders and shot blockers. Rebounders and shot blockers.

                                Negative. Kids who can make shots.

                                DRB%: Houston:147th. Baylor: 267th. UCLA: 66th. Granted Houston and Baylor crash the O boards with bad intentions.

                                AdjO: Houston: 6. Baylor: 3. UCLA: 14. And of course the cheat code Gonzaga: 1. Give me a top 10 offense over a top 10 rebounding squad any day.

                                Let's just both agree to follow '12-'13 WSU model to the F4. Top 30 AdjO/D. Top 20 ORB/DRB%.
