Correct, and this year he will have 3 "higher touted" freshman who appear to be hell bent in contributing this season. Will be interesting.

A 12 man rotation = no 4 star guys will come to Creighton. Duke uses a 6 or 7 man rotation with 5 or 6 guys on the bench and it seems to work just fine. I hope Mac never changes the way he uses his players.


Okay, lets go. Looks like we will have 3 four star freshman in the lineup

PS CU's style of play requires a 8-9 man rotation.

All those in favor of being one injury away from disaster signify by saying aye? Fact of the matter is that no one is pushing a 12 player rotation, certificates of participation or anything else along that line. But it is reasonable to try to play players for development purposes against USC Northridge and the Alcorn State squad. Do you think Marcus, Khyri will really get a lot out of playing Creighton Prep walk-ons? The difference is that Mac has identified getting those players more playing time in those games as part of a development plan. Let's see if he does.

He's not on vacation, KenoshaJay. You beat me to the punch by about two hours!

Not only is that 6-7 hours more driving if you live in the Omaha metro area but it will cost you about $50 for gas and you will miss all the fun of staying in KC, (Creightonville). I expect the hotels/bars, to be sold out and painted Creighton BLUE
