this years team

I love the cats last year. I love this team more. Not exactly sure why. They have this quality about them and no egos or troublemakers
on this team.

So last year's team had trouble makers? I like this team, but I don't know how anyone could like this team more than last years. I agree they seems to be less egos, but I like swagger.

Team just seems to make the right choices. And they keep improving each game. Last years team did have a lil ego in games, This team is silent but deadly.

I agree, this years team seems to be less confrontational when confronted with coaching. If we had one more big man I could see this team doing more than last years team due to their attitudes. With the right "breaks" they still might. cheers

This team does not have that refuse to lose mentality that last years team did. I hope they get it come this March. but if this team played last years team, I think last years would win, maybe not a blow out but a definite win.

I love this team, likes last years also. Only thing that worries me this year is foul trouble. We are kicking butt right now, but come March when we play teams like in top 10 are we going to be able to stay out of foul trouble? Just wish we had Enes to help out.

Well we'll never know but I'm not sure that would happen. Last years team was terrible shooters. Liggins is much better this year.
If they were to play each other I'm sure the 2009 team would try to dump it to Boog and 2Pat and go for the mismatch. Of course this team would stay in the game with 3 pointers, which was not a trait of last year's bunch.
Also, the 2010 team would probably throw a 1-3-1 defense on the court.

This team shoots so much better from the perimeter. Their shooting from 3 makes them a threat in every game. If Jones keeps dishing from the double team like he has, they will be a tough out. Jorts has learned to move without the ball. They are very hard to defend right now.

I think what helps us this year is Liggins, Miller and Harrellson. Knight, Lamb and Jones are a lot more talented than those guys, but, their experience is something that last year's team lacked. Patterson, as good as he was, wasn't a true upperclassman. He kinda hung around and took what was given to him as opposed to just taking it for himself.

I see Liggins, Miller and Harrellson creating opportunities for themselves and taking advantage of those opportunities. Liggins and Miller are diving all over the place this year. I think I've seen Liggins diving after a loose ball nearly every game this season. We didn't have guys doing things like that last year. I think Harrellson has learned a lot about how to play down low and is asserting himself more as a true big man.

When you have great leadership guys and extremely talented freshman playing well together, you're going to have a very good season. These guys have a lot more basketball intelligence than last year's team did. No disrespect to those players, because that team was fun to watch, but, you can see that this team seems to understand the fundamentals more than last year's squad.

The only thing we're missing is depth. We need Vargas to up his game. He's big and we cannot rely solely on Harrellson. We haven't seen much of Stacey Poole. I'm not sure if he's been in the doghouse or what, but, we could surely use his help as well. Obviously he's got game being a four star recruit. If we get just those two guys to step up, we're in really solid shape to make a title run.

I am not saying this team isnt talented, they are very much so. But they dont have that mental toughness that last years freshmen had. and the only time I didnt see it was when we lost to West Virgina.

Seems to me they're more open to constructive criticism given by Coach. They don't pout and make up for less flash with more consistent hustle. IMHO

I don't know Mikey. This team seems to be pretty tough. Every time UL knocked, they answered. I feel very comfortable with this team simply because they shoot the ball so well. This team will not have a shooting nightmare like last year's team. It will be a good ride.

Not sure Mike, I think Lamb and Knight have more mental toughness then say Cousins and Bledsoe. And Jones hasn't been in foul trouble in a while. This team to me doesn't get as frustrated as last years team. Last years team took a lil while to come together this years team seems to have learn quick.

They are one Enes Kanter away from being a better "team".

Once again, I am not saying this team isnt good or dont have talent, but it seems that some of you guys think this team could beat the 1996 team, I just aint seeing it.

Comparing last year and 1996 team is two very different things. I didn't see where that was mentioned.

That came from left field. I can count the teams in the history of the NCAA that could beat that team on one hand, and I'd have to do some digging to find any. I thought we were talking about this team's toughness and future compared to last year. If this team stays out of foul trouble in the tournament, they have a better chance of a deep run than last year's team primarily due to their perimeter shooting.
