I think the offensive side, and the defensive side, are light-years away from where we’ve got to be. That’s not how we’re going to play. We were basically trying to design a plan where our guys can compete for 40 minutes in the ACC against those teams. It’s not like we were trying to figure out how we’re going to beat teams in the long run. We’re going to play fast, we’re going to try to score 75 to 80 points, we’re going to mix up defenses, we’re going to be aggressive, we’re going to play nine to 10 guys. All the things I just said just weren’t realistically options with such youth and inexperience and weak bodies and cardio fitness. All those things have got to be terrific—and, you know, just not enough pieces. So I think we are really far away, but what I do like is I think the guys are willing to learn, I think there’s a good skill level, I think as they get bigger, stronger, and more experienced you’ll see all of the things we’re trying to do come into light as each guy gets better at every position.
