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.
