Well, if the recruits weren't any good, then there wouldn't be any point in playing them early since replacing [marginal talent + some experience] with [marginal talent + no experience] would be a step backward. So while I agree that the need for an upgrade in talent is needed, I interpret early playing time for the freshman as an upgrade rather than a push.
I didnt say they werent any good. I said numbers are forcing us to play them in spots no matter what. Like legget and freeman. And if our depth was where it could be we wouldnt need em right now.
