Ginyard said that was apparent from the moment it walked onto a court together.
"That was terrible," he said of the Vanderbilt scrimmage. "That was like the whole season right there. That's exactly the way this whole year's gone down."
Vanderbilt won the scrimmage by more than 30 points, and Ginyard said the Tar Heels didn't seem ready to play, didn't even seem all that concerned.
"At the time, you think there's no way we're not even ready to play and got beat by Vanderbilt by 30 points," he said. "It was the very first time we were all playing. It was like, how are we not super-pumped to be playing? As soon as we got back we had a meeting in the locker room. We were like, 'This isn't how it's supposed to go down. We've got to play better than this. We've got to play more together than this, blah, blah, blah.' But again, even more indicative of the year, nothing really changed after that."
Another marquee name on the Beavers spring schedule comes Friday, March 26 when they travel north to take on the Seattle Sounders starting at 11 a.m. The Beavers will head to Seattle and train for a few days before the match and be there for the MLS season opener between the Sounders and the Union and Mwanga.
"The special piece about our game against Seattle is that the night before they are playing Philadelphia in first game of the year for the Major League Soccer season and Danny (Mwanga) will be playing for Philly in Seattle," Simmons said. "We're going to go up and train for a couple days and I'm sure he'll come to practice to see his friends and his teammates. We'll watch him play on Thursday night and then Friday morning we'll play the members of the team that didn't get many minutes."
