Seth Allen -- He isn't starting, but he's contributing more and earlier than I was expecting. He led the team with 18 points on Monday night in a dreadful game against Pittsburgh -- he was the lone shining light.
The 2014 recruiting class -- Three of the four were nominated for the McDonald's All-American team.
Dez Wells/Jake Layman dynamic duo -- Okay, so generally when one is off, the other is on and it isn't a big deal. What we saw on Monday is if both are off, the team is not okay. At all. They aren't dropping yet, but maybe soon.
Nick Faust -- Everyone has an off-game. I think we can all forgive the performance against Pittsburgh. Before the game against Pittsburgh, Faust had four straight double-digit scoring games.
Evan Smotrycz -- Second half Evan Smotrycz was a detriment to the team. Smotrycz looked good in the first half, leading the team with 9 points on 3-of-4 shooting from behind the arc. He fell in love with his jump shot and went 1-of-7 in the second half. His defense was sub-par and an all-around ugly performance.
The Jonathan Graham starting experience -- Guess that's over now? Much like the Damonte Dodd and Varun Ram experiences before, this one met a swift end. Graham also saw his minutes down in the Pittsburgh game.
Mark Turgeon -- The score was 36-30 at the half, a reasonable score on the road, but to lose by twenty in the fashion they did was inexcusable. Much like myself once the National Championship game started, the team gave up on the game. Whispers are starting to float around College Park -- much like they did when Edsall was struggling -- about a timetable.
Football -- If only because it is gone until spring ball.
