I've been a cat fan for longer than I can remember, much to the dismay of my father who is a MSU alum, and I can vaguely remember the 1997 championship run. However, I was eight years old and wasn't really analyzing anything on the team, just loved them in general.
so to those old enough to actually make assertions about that team in 1997, did you really think that team was good enough to win the championship that year? If so what were some of te glaring differences between that team and ours this season? I personally still don't think our big man play is there yet, but we hopefully have 11 more games till tourney time and I'm hoping we can finally turn the page on some of those issues.
Im just curious because our detractors seem to think we have no chance to win it all, much less make the final four, and I'm just wondering if sentiments were the same in 1997.
