Harsh assessment - I think there is much hope given the talent. They need to learn how to play 60 minutes. That is the principle job of the coaches. We can thrive at this level, but IMO coaching is currently deficient. I hear they're young. Young - smoung... We have the talent to compete now.

They accomplished this in 3 years and they came back from farther than we are. It can be done. First consideration has to be whether we have the right coach. After 6 years, it is question we should all ask.
Didn't realize we were that young. I was feeling generally a little disappointed that the team has taken a step backwards from the last couple of years.
