Seems to me Rose has bought into this idea of "we just need more talent" when we need to get more out of the talent we have.
Rose has done better with lesser talent. He and others seem to keep forgetting that.
What lesser talent? I haven't ever seen a bench as bad as the one we had this year.
And 100 years of statistics back me up on that. The article below talks about how BYU's starters are (were) tied for 1st place in the country scoring per game with UCLA, but they drop 31 complete spots when you factor in the bench, which averaged 14 points in conference play. I mean, there are teams that have players that come off the bench and go for 14 on a regular basis. It's a freaking miracle if we have someone come off the bench and score 5 points!

And to the topic at hand, (with all due respect) we aren't going to miss a combined 1.4 points a game and 3 turnovers a game average... We have people coming back from missions that are much more talented.
