Being young is the new "it" in college BB. Not many of the elite teams start many upperclassman. We can sit here and say "wait till next year" but I am tired of saying that. There are many reasons why we should not have won the title but being young is not one of them. UCLA was in the title game last year with underclassman. Same as Florida. Look at OSU and UNC. They are all young. It amazes me that UNC can come from behind by 16, OSU from behind by 20 and we can barely score 20 points in the second half.

I get where you're coming from, but USC and Tenn blew the games more than those others won. Tonight we blew the game. Like you say, you can only use the youth excuse so much. But experience does pay dividends. UCLA lost last year and this year, regardless of the fact we were the better team, they knew how to take advantage of opportunities and win. I don't like losing and see no moral victories, but we blew the game last year and learned from it and made the Elite 8. One can only hope, like UCLA, we'll learn and go even farther next year.
