- Soph. Spike allows Walton to ease into a starting role = Walton either Burke level awesome (sweet) or else Walton around at least 2 years, probably more. Next PG recruit after Walton will have Senior Spike (and possibly Jr Walton) around and will probably learn from the bench as a Frosh.
- Irvin may steal the show here, and then jump after only a year (again, sweet), but LeVert is going to own this starting spot as an upperclassman, again allowing for future SG recruits to come in an learn from the bench. Stauskas splitting between the 2 and 3 will add to this.
- In 2-3 years this will be am upperclassman Stauskas I would think. Even if Irvin is already gone, whoever the next recruit is will be learning from the bench almost undoubtably.
- Donnal will be seasoned here in 2-3 years, with an upperclassman Biefeldt there as well. More learning from the bench here for whoever comes in next.
- In 2 years this will be a senior Horford and junior Bielfeldt with Freshman Doyle learning from the bench probably. In 3 years the next Big recruit will be learning behind Doyle.
- Dominant starting pitching from Fister.
- A game opponent (and my other favorite team) making a game of it early.
- Clutch AJax
- Clutch Miggy
- Even a little Papa Grande to top it off.

I could be that these guys are using the KS campaign to demonstrate a viable market for their product, so as to be able to secure investment funding down the line. Everyone can knock em' for having a dream, but you have to respect their enthusiasm at least.
I have hated the EA games for so long... 20$ seems like a good deal. And I don't even own a PS or XBox.

Already we have Walton stepping in to a situation where Spike may very well start for the first third of the season. This means that Walton is less likely to track to the NBA after only one year. In this light, looking at each position in 2-3 years:
Of course any position may have a super-recruit come in and steal the show. If this happens with seasoned veterans as listed above then coming off the bench, the wild swings we saw these past seasons will be smoothed out considerably. Eventually I think the program will reach a steady-state (of excellence) under Beilein, hopefully in time for him to hand the reigns off to a protege.

Or will a clone pop up to take their place? Seems like the niche is there.

Nice when the few and far between look like that. It had a little of everything:
Can't wait to move back to Michigan in June and catch the rest of this season on the regular!

At least ND fans don't stoop to accusing Hoke of cheating in recruiting (like some little brothers we know...):

I made it to one game in the last two years, NW this past year. 25 yard line up near the top and had a great time (as everyone who stayed for the end did). The student section for that game was a disgrace; it was a beautiful day and the student section was maybe half full to be generous at kickoff, and maybe 2/3 full by the end of the 1st quarter.
When I was on campus, the section was full every game. People would crowd-surf around and the marshmallow wars were epic. Someone was playing the MSU game on a boombox one game, and that boombox got surfed right up and over the wall. These days the box would have to stop half-way up because no one would be there to surf it the rest of the way.
Student-Fans need this to be reminded of what a blessing the games are for them. It would be best if students had to buy tickets the day of and get there in time to get a seat IMO.
