Backing off last year's end of year prediction

At the end of last year I thought UNC would be in the final four this year, no questions asked. I hereby rescind that statement and disavow all knowledge of any posts that may have been made by me.

It's not just because FSU is throttling them. But I just don't think they have what it takes to win that many games in a row against quality competition. Too inconsistent.

I agree, they dont have that killer instinct this year....sad, cause they are so loaded. Everybody has been comparing this team to the 05' and 08' teams, but these guys are not even close to those two talented teams. If the mental game is not there, then your not going to win championships, I dont care who you have on your team.

Do you think its because everyone is looking ahead to the draft?

Honestly don't know what the problem is. One thing for sure in this game was they just got flat outplayed...in every facet of the game.

I honestly thought this team would be better than 09...couldn't have been further from the truth. I think going into this year I expected Barnes to be much better than he has been. He's just not a dominant player. He's a really good player, just can't seem to take a team on his back when the chips are down...something you'd expect from a projected top 5 pick. As far as killer instinct...McCants, Lawson, Ellington, Hansbrough all had it...Barnes, not so much.

Plenty of room on the HEELS bandwagon this year.

Harrison Barnes is way overrated, Kendall Marshall doesn't play defense, Henson doesn't play offense, and Roy Williams really isn't a superstar coach (flame on for that if you want, K wins with much less talent).

Last year's elite 8 run was all about playing the easiest possible path to the elite 8. Kindof like Duke and their championship run 2 seasons ago.

they will be fine. I didn't think they would win it all anyways. I picked Syracuse at the beginning of the season to win it.

nope, stated a fact. At least Roy didn't flat out say if he had known he would have faked an illness, or have a fake seizure on the floor.
