    LOL @ #1 – yes, can the current Cats please win a National Championship so #1 can take them for granted? This current team can’t play well without #1 and KSR being focused on the task at hand. #1, NEVER celebrate the past because we can’t afford YOU being complacent if we’re going to get 9 this season.

    Those guys blew teams out of the water. Unbelievable squad. How many went from that team to play in the NBA?

    Nine players to the NBA. Ripped Knight at Indy (I think). IU fans had pretty much given up.
    If you weren’t around to watch that team press and run, you missed some exciting ball.
    Dominated Wake’s Duncan-led team in the tourney. One of two loses was to Cal. Guess everyone knows all that, though.

    Let’s face it, most schools either don’t have a Championship team to celebrate, or they’re like Louisville and all the players from the championship team are in nursing homes by now.
