The basketball Cats need to be in this for the long haul. Last year, guys like Willie Cauley-Stein and Alex Poythress thought they may be ready for the next level, but found out they weren't in the NIT.
This season, it's time to settle in and ride it out. Because if you don't, it'll make for a long, painful process for everyone involved.
Coach Cal knows this year's team is talented enough to win every game, it'll just take working it every day in practice to get there.
So start putting the clothes in drawers, you've got a whole season in front of you young Cats.
Hear from Coach Cal in the video.
