But until they win it again I'll stick with what I'm saying. Remember the team that had 2 platoons? Easily on paper the best in the feild. Did not win it.

    Only 6 freshman, 2 of which never saw the floor and 1 with limited minutes. Two soph that were good both went to the nba that year. Juniors that may not have been great players but provided much leadership. I can say this because my son and I spent 2 days with this team and even teague, davis and gilchrist looked to the ones above them for advice and guidance. Without Miller I don't believe that team would have succeeded like they did. They all really clicked and worked well together and that is something that hasn't happened since in my opinion.
