Will continue to grow.  It takes time for teams to gel with so many new pieces and the much needed UCLA win should give them some confidence the rest of the way.  Trust in Beilein.

So should Simpson be the starting PG? He made mistakes but overall played excellent offense and more importantly defense. I think the Simmons experiment has been a failure but with brooks as the backup I feel great going into big ten play

But at this point I think you need to look at each opponent individually.  I understand that having a number one guy is beneficial in the long run, but situationally Eli and Z offer different strengths.  I think a mistake was made in the LSU game when Eli played most of the minutes in the closing stretch, when Z was probably better suited to stay in front of their quick PG.  When you need to open things up a bit, Eli is probably the answer (but Z looked good on offense against UCLA which was a great sign if he can keep it up), but when you are facing a dynamic PG who drives the other team's offense, Z can lock him down to disrupt their flow.

Just a random thought, what would our team look like with Kam Chatman right now? He seems to he doing well with Detroit, would he be a fix at the 4? Even if we only played 25 minutes a game if he allowed Duncan to come off the bench and play 25 minutes when Beilein could pick his matchups that seems like it would be beneficial.
