That confident, huh? Tennessee doesn't even have close to their best and most experienced team on paper going into the season, didn't make a Final Four any of those other years, and you're that confident? Interesting.

This is the most talented, deep team that they have ever had.

Ask Rick Barnes about, deep, young, and talented teams and all the Finals Fours he's made lately with that recipe.

Rick Barnes isn't coming off an Elite 8 run.

Nobody can take McDonald's All Americans and turn them into guys who should be working at McDonald's better than Bruce Pearl.

BP has only had 2 HS AA's and they are on the team right now.

OK?? Your reading comprehension is really lacking.

My point is Rick Barnes has had teams with multiple McD's AA's, 10+ man rotations, and young inexperienced teams, and has only been to one Final Four.

You're under the impression that making a Final Four is a piece of cake.

Tennessee has talent but is young.

2009-2010 stats
Melvin Goins: 16 mpg, 5.3 ppg, 1.8 apg, .387 FG%, .327 3P%
Scotty Hopson: 27.7 mpg, 12.2 ppg, 3.4 rpg, .445 FG%, .333 3P%
Cameron Tatum: 16.9 mpg, 7.4 ppg, 2.2 rpg, .481 FG%, .389 3P%
Tobias Harris: True Freshman
Brian Williams: 19.1 mpg, 5.6 ppg, 6.4 rpg, .504 FG%

Josh Bone: 9.7 mpg, 1.7 ppg, 1.0 rpg,
Kenny Hall: 12.4 mpg, 3.6 ppg, 3.0 rpg, .578 FG%, .548 FT%
Trae Golden: True Freshman
Renaldo Woolridge: 13.0 mpg, 3.4 ppg, 2.9 rpg, .384 FG%, .319 3P%
Skyler McBee: 13.1 mpg, 3.4 ppg, 1.2 rpg, .323 FG%, .313 3P%
Jordan McRae: True Freshman
Steven Pearl: 10.9 mpg, 1.5 ppg, 1.3 rpg, .476 FG%, .263 FT%
Tyler Summitt: Is he even expected to contribute?


The fact is, Tennessee may have depth and talent, but it's young talent and not a lot of experience. You're returning leading scorer averaged 12.4 ppg and he is a very good player. However, they are still a poor shooting team who isn't one of the 10-12 most imposing teams on paper, yet you're claiming they're a Final Four lock like they're '08-'09 UNC or '06-'07 Florida. No one is a Final Four lock and to insinuate this Tennessee team is is just foolish.

Ask JCal about having a young team.

Plus having a guy like Harris will raise all their stats. He makes everybody better.

What, and his "one" Final Four? And that team had young talent but also had experienced and proven talent.

I can't tell if you're a blind homer or just an idiot.

If and when Kanter is cleared, Kentucky will win the SEC easily.

Now that we have the conspiracy theory Kentucky fan in here, this whole thread has turned into one big bag of SEC stupidity.
