They won't be stumbling with this noncon. If they do, then we won't have to worry about .500 in conference play.
If I thought they'll be the same team in February as they will be in November then I'd be inclined to agree. But I think this team is going to grow up a lot from their first exhibition to the last regular season game. The non-con could be a little choppy as Prohm experiments with the rotation and guys get used to their new roles and playing with each other.
