Based on just talent alone the current team has the advantage but the huge advantage the former team had was that the season before they played in the Natty game, they were made of of a core (other than Tony) of Jr and Sr guys. It is one thing to think a group that relies a lot of the freshmen can do great things this season but I can't really compare them to a team that actually did achieve greatness.Like your comparisons.
Berry vs Love- Berry was a really good leader, but Love is the better athlete. A Senior Berry is better IMHO.
Theo vs Leaky- Theo got bashed allot until his Junior year. If Leaky stays healthy I call this even. Theo a better passer, but I believe in Leaky (A healthy Leaky).
Meeks, Hicks vs Bacot, Brooks, Sharpe and Kessler- I am going with the new guys with this one, to much talent to deny.
Justin Jackson- There is nobody we have that can compare right now, but if Love can be special with his scoring, and Leaky can defend at high level we can make up for that.
** The Title team had experience leading us and Berry grew, Love will not be here long enough to see this, but I am confident he will be a better freshmen player than Berry. Pinson got bashed for two years if anyone wants to look back, and then became appreciated, I see the same with Leaky. Meeks and Brooks compare as far as stats. Meeks was just a true college Center.
** This years team will have to find that shooter. I hope RJ can help, like the reports on Walton. It would be nice if Platek could make this happen, but he is who he is!
