Uh, 2017 was one of the worst years since the 2014 season when the roster..

became all Coach Bennett recruited players. I think the fact that the staff played such a large rotation was indicative of the struggles. It was also the worst ACC finish since 2013 (tied for fourth place). While I have always been intrigued by having a five man platoon substitution scheme (see the "Tall Blues" Dean Smith used in '73, I think) to create defensive havoc, I am not convinced that that works with Coach Bennett's pack line. I believe the smaller rotation preserves continuity, but it is going to be harder to use one this year, IMO. Go 'Hoos!!!
