    If there was any validity to that list, Kentucky would win easily....

    According to the article, UF's average player ranking is 10.2, while Kentucky's is just 8.2.

    Both of Harrison twins better than Prather and one of them better than Young?

    I shouldn't be surprised since Young is named DPOY of the year by them for the SEC and then isn't in the top 10 in the conference. Umm, defense is half the game and Kentucky doesn't play much of it.

    The thing that article by its very nature neither addresses or even acknowledges is the concept of team. Therein lies one of the Gators greatest strengths.

    I heard on Sirius radio Rex Chapman say he did not think any of the UK starters should be drafted.

    No question - but I don't think its trying to acknowledge that either. All they say they're doing is ranking players.

    Certainly seems to me they're going off of recent performance and not this year's performances. CBS seems to do a lot of these weird rankings throughout the year. They must get a lot of clicks.

    exactly. otherwise, I don't think the ranking is way off. You could certainly quibble a few spots here or there, but it's in the ballpark I think.
    but we all know the sum is far greater than the parts with this team.

    I'm the one who went off about Young being ranked ahead of Prather. Stupidest shit I've ever seen. Pro prospect okay, but Young is average in college. He is frazier without defense or the ability to pass.

    The rankings, as intended, are simply someone's ranking of individual talent. So, as noted, they don't address how well they play together as a team.

    Of course, the best team is not necessarily the five best players. It's the five players that play the best together.

    Then, there are the bench players. The bench rankings don't go beyond 1 bench player for each team. So, Kasey Hill's significant contributions aren't included.

    Yeah. Defense is half the game. This seems to rank them based on offense mostly.
