Saw this debate in another thread. Pick your four and let’s see what the numbers say
Seems we get this at least twice a season since the last NC.
I was about to type the exact thing word for word. Everyone loves Ray but IMO he didn’t win, so doesn’t get a spot. I have that 1996 sweet 16 game against Mississippi State etched in my memory. So my four were the same. Buzz, Kemba, Emeka, Rip.Seems we get this at least twice a season since the last NC.
Anyway, for me to get your face chiseled in rock, you had to bring an NC. Kemba and Bazz were automatics as they were the 11 & 14 titles. 99 & 04 were a bit more challenging to pick just one, but went Rip & Emeka. Leaving out KEA stung a bit as he was the heart & soul of 99, IMO.
Simple as that. Trophy or get out. Ray may have been a great player here, but no hardware.
I hear ya but Tate’s not getting that shot that year without Nadav Henefeld or Chris Smith. He’s 3 or 4 on that team alone. One shot doesn’t make the Rock for me.Fair enough. He wouldn't be in my top 4 anyway. But it does beg the question, where would we be now without Tate?
