And I suspect that there are a lot of fans who haven’t come to grip with the issues facing most teams this year. Theoretically, there are 4,654 Div 1 basketball scholarships available each year. Last year, 1,728 players, according to VerbalCommits, entered the transfer portal. That’s over 37% of scholarship players. I don’t believe people have yet realized the disruption to continuity that that has produced. Among other things, last night was the first time this year that Virginia looked like they were playing as a team as opposed to five guys on the floor wearing the same color uniforms. At least, that was my impression. Judging a coach’s performance after six games in these circumstances would suggest a complete disregard of present realities. In addition, I doubt that we have seen the last of the WTF moments in college ball this year. I suspect it’s going to be a “two steps forward; one step back” kind of season. In UNC’s case, it’s worth remembering that Dean Smith was 8 - 9 in his first year at Carolina, and that Matt Doherty was 26 - 7 in his inaugural season there. Nothing can be said of Coach Davis’ abilities yet.
