"Maybe our schedule for this young group is too much too soon." Yup, that's Geno talking. He also says Evina is still working her way back. An article of this and that directed to the approaching season.

So, if they have a bad season, he will say: " I told you in November, it might be too much."

Full quote consistent with Geno's often stated desire to test his club early and often

“And our games there will be really enlightening. If we play Mississippi State, that’s a top-5 opponent right there. And facing Louisville will be a great situation for our players to be in. Maybe our schedule for this young group is too much too soon. But the more we’re challenged the more it’s good for our team. We’ll see if we’re ready for it.”

Hey, I read that too and agree context is important as it was not nearly as "down" as the quote appears on it's own. Maybe this was Rocky's way of "teasing" the article to get us to read it? Well played, I say, well played... :rolleyes:

Geno downplaying what a very young team could accomplish, and he's focusing the attention on himself?
John Calipari has a young team. We’ve got two juniors, both experienced, one a #1 high school player and two sophomores that contributed and the #1 high school player from last year and a couple of other key frosh. Liv ain’t a project. How many bigs in WCBB are better than her? It‘s Christyn’s time. Let’s show some swag! Team doesn’t have to go undefeated! BTW when did that start? They have to get better and play their best at the end of the year!

So we shouldn’t be surprised if they lose to Mississippi St and Louisville?

I think if you asked, individually, every member and every coach on the team if they feel the schedule is "too much, too soon" they would stifle a laugh and look at you with completely innocent eyes and "Wow, I certainly hope not."
