It wasn't just that he could jump that high but also how he maintained his balance on such a little surface.

In their deluded minds it will never be over. Remember, Kentucky would win every other conference every single year.

Orlando: "Eddie gives me a lot of credit for his records, you know."

Lloyd: "That's weird...Tressel credits me for his record as well."

I agree with this being Matta's best team.  It is true that we have only played a pretty easy schedule so far, but like FSU in football, we have demolished all of those teams. What strikes me about this particular squad is the balance at both ends of the court. While Turner was here, players seemed to stand back and let him run the show. With the '06 team there was too much youth. But this team is playing well, spreading it around and as noted playing killer D. I also appreciate how much Matta is using his bench. (Possibly because he knows what little he will have returning next season?) I know the BIG still looms ahead and March is a million years away, but if this teams continues to progress they have an excellent chance at another Final Four.

It's often hard to appreciate greatness while you are experiencing it. Sometimes greatness can only truly be understood after the event is over and time allows for the person/thing to be placed in its rightful place. We can look at Craft now and say "great" but ten years from now we will say "one of the greatest ever." In other words, Lincoln might not have written such a monumental address if he had done it immediately following the battle of Gettysburg; four months of contemplation allowed for the battle to be placed in its proper perspective.

"Why, one Southerner can lick ten Yankees!"

Sorry SEC, but it's over. You had an excellent run of title games, some of which you even earned. But it is over. If OSU and FSU win their last two games the SEC will be on the outside looking in. Sorry.
