    What will be the average age of the team once the season begins? Is this the oldest team in the nation?

    What were the development plans for the players during the off season? Who was healthy and fully able to work on their game and who was rehabbing/injured (I saw you noted Bo had an off season knee injury that may or may not have inhibited his development). Who has popped or shown improvement thus far?

    Just getting on top of part of this right now: Hodges has* an offseason knee injury. This occurred a few weeks back and has been described as "minor" but they are moving "slowly and cautiously to get him back to 100%" as of a week and a half ago.

    I'll get to the rest in the piece, but just didn't want people to panic, though the timeline isn't what most would want. I've been given no reason to worry about it at this time.

    Lukas you are the best. This was a great review and I am super pumped for this year.
    I am really looking for Golden to have a breakout year. He has put on muscle, lost pounds
    and is healthy.

    Two quick questions: remind me on AT's shoulder. Shooting or non-shooting? Has Bo been able to get shots up and do individual skills work? Or, have these activities been listed by the knee, as well?

    Thanks for all of the kind words, everyone!

    I'll work on getting more clarification, 95, but don't want to keep bombarding the staff with Qs non-stop. I would guess that Bo has not been able to do individual drills.

    I know Wilmoth only put on 5 pounds but I hope his body is Big East ready

    With the pandemic, last year's frosh did not have the benefit of a summer strength program.

    Lukas, here's a potential question for your next mailbag. What percentage of our team is vaccinated? This is not a political question, but one that is popping up more as it relates to sports, and could impact player availability if they have to quarantine. I know some schools have shared this type of info. Izzo said everyone in his program is vaccinated. I also know it's a very hot topic in the NBA right now. Thanks!

    Well, I was explicitly told about a week ago not to post this publicly until I was told I was able to...but I guess that doesn't matter now:

    Everything I've said to this point on the injury is the same: Was described as "minor" to me by the staff but they are being cautious in his recovery. Won't be back by start of season (that I wasn't supposed to post, hence my TBD comment in the Hark's Bark and why I said I don't think he's doing drills).

    Aaaaaand here we go with the knee injuries. I thought it was a one year bug but, looks like eligibility, it has an extra year.

    Doesn’t the school require vaccines?

    I think we may be thankful we have an extra deep roster come March...

    Yes, it does! Announced early summer: Vaccinations required for all employees, faculty & staff, and students. There are medical and religious exemptions available. I’m fairly certain I read or heard we have a 95% vaccination rate on campus. This however doesn’t answer the specific question re: men’s bball.
