well based on my 2 practice games... this may be a very rough season, and running slowdown isn't looking like it is going to help it...
I think it's a lost season. Make the most of it -
Is the O/D you are currently running the one you want long-term? If not, it's a perfect time to switch.
Do you have a question about how the +/-, tempos, or double-teams work? If so, experiment with the options (but don't jump to conclusions based on 2-3 games).
Do you have any freshman who you think may develop into legitimately helpful players? Look at potential to determine that. If you have some, make sure they get starts and lots of PT in the games where you are clearly outmatched.
In the (few) games you play against equally poor teams, play the best right-now lineup and try not to go win-less. In the rest of the games, the goal is to do whatever you can to make the rebuilding period end as soon as possible.
