Cal actually had a similar coaching job two years ago:
Three young, inconsistent freshmen starters.
Two role players from the team the previous year, one in the starting role, the other a sparkplug off the bench.
One senior leader who came from out of nowhere.
A team that didn't win a road game in conference play until the last game of the SEC season.
All that team did was make it to the Final Four. I know that isn't going to happen this time around, but Cal did a marvelous coaching job with similar talent. I think the difference in that team was having a top PG in that class.
