Sounds to me like he was subtly calling out his players for lacking competitive fire; obviously the guy is walking a tightrope -- he can't say stuff like "we couldn't hit the side of a barn or make a free throw to save our lives" in public, less the "BU is too harsh on players and yells all of the time" bandwagon would start rolling again; at the same time, winning players make winning plays, and while we have a handful of good players, we clearly do not yet have winning players.This tells me he was grading on expectations. He already knew this schedule would be a killer, it was only a question of just how dead it would kill us. A team this young was never going to have a winning record. With any luck, next year's team will be older. If it is not, i.e., if we see another set of massive departures, then we have a real problem.
