    Here's my guess:

    PG - Marble
    SG - Oglesby
    F - Uthoff
    F - White
    C - Woodbury

    Slight chance Gesell takes over the PG and Marble moves to the 2.

    I just don't think Oglesby is a starting B1G basketball player. Marginal role player at best!

    I'm going with this ^ with a long shot of Gabe taking Woodbury's spot...

    My Guess too. With Gabe, Jok, Uthoff, and Oglesby coming off the bench, we're gonna be fine.

    This is my guess, too. I don't think Gesell comes off the bench, but I also don't think he'll be the primary PG to start the year.

    I think Fran will give the nod to Basabe early in the year, but Uthoff will take over at 3 and push White to the 4 and Basabe to the bench by mid-December.
    PG: Gesell
    SG: Marble
    SF: White
    PF: Basabe
    C: Woodbury

    Another one for

    Marble
    Gesell
    White
    Uthoff
    Woody

    I do think there could be a chance in which Josh Ogelsby or Jok could take the SG spot eventually but I think this is how they will start the season.

    I could see that or I could see Basabe following Gatens and May's path and having a terrific senior year, averaging about 10/6 a game and being a huge part of our offensive success with his 15 foot jump shot. Based on the limited evidence of the Euro trip I would lean toward the latter scenario right now.

    PG: Gesell
    SG: Marble
    SF: White
    PF: The Black Amigo
    C: Woodbury

    2nd team
    PG: Clemmons
    SG: Jok
    SF: Uthoff
    PF: McCabe
    C: Oleseni

    Sorry J.O. At least that's how I would do it. With FM, who knows. He seems to love him some JO. At least he did last year.

    PG - Marble
    SG - Oglesby
    SF: White
    PF: Uthoff
    C: Gabe

    I think they may start Gabe early in the season to see if he can make the most of it. If not, Woody will still get the start but Gabe will get the most minutes at Center.

    If gesell is hurt at beginning of season

    pg - marble
    sg - ogelsby
    sf - white
    pf - basabe
    c - woodbury

    if gesell is not hurt at beginning of season

    pg - gesell
    sg - marble
    sf - white
    pf - basabe
    c - woodbury

    big 10 season (I expect gesell to be 100% before this)

    pg - gesell
    sg - marble
    sf - uthoff
    pf - white
    c - Woodbury

    I would expect marble,white, mg if healthy to be a no brainer with the other 2 spots being fought between basabe-uthoff and woody- olaseni

    Before Gesell was injured last spring, it was:

    Marble, Gesell, White, Basabe, Woodbury

    Because of this, if MG is healthy, that's what Fran will probably start with. He did go with the most-experienced starters at all positions at times in Europe:
    Marble, Oglesby, White, Basabe, Olaseni

    That line-up did have some attractions when JO was hitting. But when he's not...

    But I look at the RDM, MG, AaW, MB, AdW line-up as the default unless there is some reason to change it. That reason would be shooting from what Fran has said concerning his improvement goals for the season. I thought JU had the edge for a change in the line-up because of his flexibility and relative experience. But the PTL and Eurotrip convinced me that, although he's going to be a great player for us, his shooting isn't a big enough part of his game to justify changing the line-up from last spring for it. Jok's shooting would have an impact and if the January starting line-up is changed for shooting, I think he has the edge over Uthoff.

    The five starters from last year return. Unless Uthoff/Jok beat someone out (Basabe) I don't see that changing. Iowa has a versatile roster now, so if a starter struggles early...no worries as I think Iowa has the best bench no matter who starts in the Big Ten.
