uh yeah...

  1. we're young, only upper classman is Blackshear (grad transfer) who is good but may not be ready to lead the youngsters
  2. our roster has 2-3 players for continuity from last year, but essentially starting from scratch
  3. our coach is often criticized for two main things - players regress rather than develop, and our offense is stand around and watch

Pick one, they all apply, but yeah, we were lucky the other team started missing down the stretch. Towson showed better offensive movement and open shots, more aggressive defense and generally outplayed us. We have a LOT more talent, but it doesn't know how to play together yet so we didn't win on that...they other team lost.

So, pres-season #6, lost at home to unranked F$U and drop to #15, lost on the road to unranked Uconn and drop out of the rankings. Stellar.

As an added bonus, we're in the Charleston Classic this weekend with a chance to rematch against Towson (we barely beat at home) and Uconn. Yay!

Yikes. I won't be able to listen to any commentary on ESPN at all this year. They hate the SEC even when we're doing well. Now all they're gonna talk about are UK and Florida's losses.

Guess that's what happens when 95% of your staff are former ACC players, coaches, assistants etc
