    It's amazing to me because 2011 and 2014 seem to be the forgotten years. No one ever talks about those teams. Yet they were the more successful team in terms of what UK fans care about most which is the big dance. People always talk about the 2010 team and never made the final four. Yet the 2011 team did, and did it impressively by knocking off top teams to get there.

    Then obviously 2015 was 38 and 1. Yet the 2014 made it a step further by making the finals. With one of the most impressive runs I ever seen, knocking off 4 top teams to get there. Yet no one ever talks about those teams or seems to remember them lol. Those teams didnt have the super stars people said Cal had to have. Yet those teams made it further than Cals teams that did have super stars. Hence why when people say he can't win without superstars its funny to me. He already had proven that he can. Imo he is going to show it this year too, and hopefully can take one more step further than the 2011, and 2014 teams.
    The negative narrative about Cal has always stunned me, especially when it comes from UK fans.

    Saw a stat that said that the Cats have held 5 of the last 8 SEC opponents to under 55 points.

    Prior to this season, they have done that to 3 of the last 54 SEC opponents.

    If you can get high-profile freshmen to play great defense, that is a tremendous accomplishment. Good defense is undervalued by kids. I don't think there are many posters of a good box out or a player staying in front of his man. There probably should be.
