Stucky can't defend well enough to win a 'ship as the starting PG. They have no one in the post. It would take an unbelievable streak of luck to get two franchise guys at PG and PF/C in the lottery and I don't see a top-flight free agent coming to Detroit. I also don't think Dumars would manage the salary cap well enough to surround said franchise players with good roleplayers/"glue guys". The Pistons are going to start missing John Hammond soon, if they aren't already.

In a four division format why not play your three division opponents, one rotating team from each of the other divisions and one permanent rivalry game. Have the 8th conference game TBD and use it as a semi-final between the four division winners. Pair up the other match-ups in some fun fashion. The winners of the semi's play in the conference championship game.

RR has shown that he can adapt his offense to his players at Tulane, Clemson, and WVU. I would assume he would do the same here. I don't think we are recruiting all of these receivers to just block. My gut tells me that in the next year or two, as the line and receivers mature, we will see more of an "Oregon with Dennis Dixon" than a "WVU with Pat White" because Tate is a better passer than runner.
On the other side of the ball, if we had a dominant defense year in and year out, we would be in the conversation for NC. The offense should - barring catastrophe - be good enough for a top 10 finish without a "perfect storm" of talent. Defense still wins championships... at least until Vince Young comes back to college.
