There is much debate as to how the current crop of Florida players might fare against teams of the past. You can certainly debate the issue as to the type of game played today by players as compared to those of yesterdays champions. Grant has it right when he comments regarding NBA asperations of players as little as 15 years ago. However if you are going to compare a "seasoned " team of juniors winning the title over a freshman dominated roster of OSU therein lies your answer. In other words, when was the last time you witnessed a freshman high school player beat up on on junior or senior hs player. It is about maturity, wisdom, ability and the coach that puts it all together in a team concept. Billy has achieved that with his current players far surpassing his current coaching peers. As to whether the FL team today could challenge the Duke, or Walton/Kareem led Bruin teams. Not close, different era, different mentality and as we all know or should, senior talent normally wins over underclass talent all things equal. See Florida current national champions. PS Congrats to FL. and coaching staff for a well done season and BTB Championships.
