Yea what matters when talking legacy/permanence of a program is:
1. NAtl ships
2. Guys in NBA / stars at next level
3. Final Fours
Billy has #1 in great shape, #2 is uneven (see zona, uconn, cuse nba guys is benchmark)...making progress with miller, haslem, j will, bonner, horfie, brewer, noah, beal, parson ...but more needed to cement UF as a feeder NBA program
3. Final Fours we are well behind lville, cuse, uconn, zona (next wave of programs behind blue bloods)...need to convert elite 8s into a few more Ws etc going fw
Great coaching gets us close but #2 + #3 go hand in hand imo and thus UF /BD need to elevate recruiting (ie sign 2-3 kids with length/top 50 kids every class) vs inconsistent classes we have signed imo
this. Wasn't the expectation to get back to the elite 8/beyond with basically the same group of guys? I don't recall anyone thinking this year was going to be bad. It was all about getting back to the Elite 8 and it was something they accomplished. Great year overall though. Stoked for the talent we have next year.
