    Elite Eights. Final Fours. National Championships.

    UF 7-4-2
    UNC 7-4-2
    Kansas 7-4-1
    MSU 7-5-1
    UCONN 6-4-2
    UK 6-3-1
    Duke 4-3-2

    A NC would rank the Gators as the number one team this century.

    No longer pending.

    Cowherd this morning said that you could make an argument that Florida and UConn, not Duke and Kansas, are the two best programs over the last 15 years.

    All of that group, other than Duke, are so close as to make attempting to differentiate utterly absurd.

    1 victory or 1 loss simply is not that important when looking at 15 year phenomena.

    Personally, I would think that Making it to the Final 4 and winning a regional trophy is more important than winning a National Championship, which is a very elusive thing, obviously.

    From that perspective, Michigan State appears to have a very, very slight lead.

    Sorry to burst your bubble guys but the year 2000 was not in this century.... it was the last year of the 20th century.

    But its obvious why you started with that year. Not only does it conveniently include UF's blowout loss in the title game, but conveniently excludes UK's elite eight in 99, their championship in 98, their final four in 97, their championship in 96, their final four in 93....and so on.

    Because nobody with a brain starts comparisons in the middle of a decade?

    Well there are several reasons as to why, but I will give you the most logical.... probably because
    1. This is a Gator board and despite having a FF in '94, 2000 really marked our emergance as a basketball power,
    2. 2000 is a nice even number as which to start.
    3. I guess the OP had to start somewhere.

    But I understand your point and I also noticed that your comparisons stopped at the FF in '93, you see if I would have started this thread I might have started in '92 in Philly with 2.1 seconds on the clock, a failure to guard the inbounds pass and no double team on the guy who didn't miss a shot all game and literally stomped on your chest and then he Laettner, (I'm sorry, I meant later) ripped your heart out. But hey that's just me but to be fair that would have added another Elite 8 to your list so congrats on that.
