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.

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.
