Team togetherness? You'll have to show me numbers on that one.
You pointed earlier to IU's great teams of the mid-70s. Not one of those teams would sniff 20 wins in today's game. Defenses are far better, athletes are more athletic, coaches are better-- the whole game is better.
Dude you are so far out there I dont know what to say.
Skill? Numbers? What are you talking about?
Coaching? I imagine that John Wooden, Adolph Rupp, Bob Knight, Denny Crum, and Dean Smith would take a little exception to your comments.
Team togetherness? What the heck is that?
To say that the IU teams of 75 or 76 not sniffing 20 wins today is like saying that UK's team in 78 wouldnt win 10. Everyone of the starters on IU's 76 NCAA championship team was drafted in the 1st round.
