Wow. Sorry to disagree. That team overachieved. NCAA lock, yes. Final Four? No.
The women's middle 3 final fours were "final four" teams. Kentucky last year was a "final four" team. LSU 2006 was a good team, but not a "final four" team as you infer.
Sorry to disagree again, but just because LSU basketball expectations are low and we don't see talented teams very often, that team was no doubt a final four team. Brady did a good job of getting that team to the final four, but made absolutely no in-game adjustments while getting his arse handed to him.
The Wisconsin game was equally painful because that was an extremely talented team that couldn't adjust to the physical ways of Wisconsin and the officials sucked. Brady again made no adjustments and wasted a chance at something special.
