Didn't this NEW coach just get hired in late June or July? I does take time to find out what works. It doesn't take time to see who hustles and who doesn't. It's a learning process for the player and the coaches. Usually the upper classmen know what is expected and can bring along the younger players. In this case, EVERYONE is feeling each other out and learning a new system. You have the start of the season against non-conference teams to get experience (two scrimages don't help). Give them some time, isn't conference play just starting?
