Last year, we were reduced to having our #4 center starting. Now, in the 2nd game, we were reduced to having our #4 RG starting. WATERS hasn't shown up. CONNOLLY was out injured. CANNON, who moved over to RG last week when Connolly was hurt, was needed at RT. And then there was THOMAS, who might not have made the team if Waters were here. Some would even put THOMAS 5th behind MCDONALD who is also injured. In the end, we will be fine when Connolly and Vollmer healthy. Obviously we would be even better with Waters back AND Connolly and Vollmer were healthy.
