The newbies will get more playtime as we need them developed and time is not on our side. This is a different kind of season. Lesser time to be developed lesser time to get in game shape and lesser time to gain experience. With 3 more games coming up this week I expect us to be at least 9 deep. By January we need to be playing at another level. Those who play at that level will play more minutes in big games then those who dont. I dont expect us to have huge blowouts either because we will be 9 deep.. I expect us to have a mindset that we need to get better as a team. To do that we have to many really good players that need to learn Genos system, learn it fast and make it flow. If we have a 9 player rotation that will take a little longer to develop then a 6 player rotation. Thats where we're at. So I wouldnt look for big time blowouts right away. We will win and out talent alot of teams. It may not be pretty at times but we will win. It will be pretty when we're polished and that takes time. I remember when I was working for a golf professional who had just gotten off the tour after many years. He said what do you wanna be? I said I wanna go on TV and play golf just like you. He said do you know what it takes? You need to hit 300-500 golf balls a day. Play 18 holes and if you dont break par play another 18 and hit more balls and putt til dark for 4 years and you might make it. So what will it take for UConn to get up to Genos expectations. It will take dedication, time, a total commitment, and sacrifice. If we look forward and not back we can do it. When your looking back the view never changes.
