    Better late than never. Apologies for the lack of pods over the last month or so. We actually recorded two of them and managed to mess both up editing. :face_vomiting: :face_with_head_bandage:

    Thought it was funny when you were talking about point guard in the 21-22 season and no one mentions Senior Foster Loyer once…

    Endless Motor aka MattD posted these tidbits about Akins on MGoBlog:

    Kobe is working on getting Jaden Akins in the mix. Hopefully him being in the mix helps with the cause.

    Depth chart, look at the depth charts. That is what is keeping us in the mix there. That and style of play. Time will tell.

    Overall depth chart simply doesn’t matter, its the positional depth chart that is influential. Michigan’s guard depth for 21 literally reads Zeb Jackson. Bufkin is has enough size/versatility to play the 1-3 on offense so that shouldn’t be an issue.
    MSU on the other hand will have Hoggard, Christie, Loyer and perhaps Watts/Bates.

    I think it’s probably more to do with the fact that Christie and Bates are guaranteed to play big minutes and if Watts comes back so is he. So that could be their 1-3 positions all logging heavy minutes with minimal minutes available for anyone else (and those minimal guard minutes could be taken up by Hoggard and Gabe Brown leaving none for Akins). At least with Zeb and Bufkin, they are players that Akins could feel like he can come in and compete/beat them out for spots in the rotation. And neither guy would be guaranteed the kind of minutes that the MSU guys would so he’d have more minutes available off the bench even if he didn’t beat out those guys for starting spots in the backcourt
