I don't think it's hype so much as it was expecting too much in too little time.
Thanks for the article, lang.
About the bolded sentence, I read that Sam said right now the guy had a lot of stuff running in his head, and he needed to go on that track all the time to get his best level. I agree with Sam here, he needs to learn the center job and that spends a long time (I think that is a spot at which experience is gold)
