Interesting. I really am anxious to see Lenn go up against the type of athletes that UK brings. He battled against the UNC stable of talent last year, but really was overwhelmed by the numbers. UK will provide a similar test.
The names at the top of the list are interesting. Many seem to fit the college star, NBA role player mold.

I like James Michael McAdoo to be higher on the list. Hate where he goes to school though. Roy WIlliams will get as little as possible out of him though.

The biggest issue for Len last year was he was the only Maryland post player underneath that could compete with the other bigs in the league. Now we have Shaq, Charles Mitchell, Len and Padgett. We are much better in the front court this season.

I do not disagree, that was sort of my point. He battled against Carolina last year and they came at him in waves and eventually he sorted of backed down more from a physical standpoint than one of effort.
I think UK will be a good barometer for Len and his team mates. Maryland should have more guys in the fight this year, but Len needs to be the one delivering the big hits this year for maryland to be really good in the paint.

Yeah I caught what you were saying and you hit the nail on the head. Word is Len added quite a bit of weight which will help a lot and he has help now, and that's the big thing. If he can handle Noel, he will be able to handle anyone. Noel is the athletic test. Luckily, I saw some good athleticism from Len last year that I really liked and he has a nice mid-range shot which adds to his ability to be dangerous. He is the x-factor this season for sure.
