Kerry Miller over at Bleacher Report on the strengths of the best basketball teams for the upcoming season.  Most of these articles are fluff, but he did say something that I had not thought of.  With the quality depth that Texas will have from the top to the bottom of the roster, we will probably never have to face foul trouble this year ... that is actually an astonishing possibility.  Now the coaches just have to coach to that strength and keep everybody happy with the minutes that they do get.

The Greatest Strength of Top College Basketball Teams in 2014-15

 

Texas Longhorns

"Strength: Depth for days 

 

Rick Barnes' ability to find playing time for everyone was our biggest question mark for Texas two weeks ago.

 

So how is it that we're now listing depth as the biggest strength for the Longhorns?

 

Simply put, there's no telling when you have too much of a good thing. There may be some issues with playing time, but that's only because there are so many quality options on this team.

 

Having Demarcus Holland, Connor Lammert, Kendal Yancy, Martez Walker and Prince Ibeh come in off the bench is the equivalent of having a second line in hockey. Or switching the metaphor to a different sport, instead of needing seven quality innings out of every starter every night, Texas can rest assured that it has one of the best bullpens in the country.

 

It must be nice for Texas to know that it's almost impossible to ever really get into foul trouble."
