  Who will be in the Illini starting five?
With rising anticipation for the upcoming hoops season, Mark Tupper speculates on the starting five for the Illinois Fighting Illini and thinks Weber might have a difficult time with the lineup this year. According to Tupper, the only two certainties are Dee Brown and James Augustine (both of who happen to be nursing injuries and not practicing at the time). This blogger has a hard time believing that Brian Randle isn't also in the starting five, but after that it really does become open to speculation.

In light of that, here's our staring lineup for the first game against the South Dakota State University Jackrabbits:

1. Dee Brown
2. Rich McBride
3. Brian Randle
4. Warren Carter
5. James Augustine

Brown, Randle and Augustine are probably the only solid starters. McBride's starting spot is probably the most vulnerable, with Calvin Brock and Jamar Smith breathing down his neck. Carter is also far from a sure thing, especially if Weber decides to stick with the three-guard offense that served them so well last season. Blogger Brett Dawson of the Champaign News-Gazette is impressed with Chester Frazier and thinks he has a shot at being in the starting lineup.

What are your thoughts? Who are the starting five?
