Three Teams - Most talented squad?

This has been a constant source of argument, so which team had the most talent on the roster and why do you feel that way? Goes without saying, all teams underachieved.

Wow, this is a tough one.  Looking at those names you realize how horrible we've been the past 11 years. 

Keeping the common denominator of all these teams were horribly coached, I think Purnell's team his last year had the "most talent".

The proof is in the pudding. OPs last team won 6 games in the Big East, which these teams could only wish for. If OP and his POWER STAFF actually gave a shittake, I think they could have actually been a pretty good team. He was stealing money 90% of the time he was here.

NotHotTakes - I am not 100% in agreement, because I think a very talented team will not always transfer to wins. There have been some teams that would seem to have immense talent and yet severely underachieve (as a FSU football fan, see last year).

OK, won't let me vote.  Says it's locked or I voted twice.

Well, I cannot take any team where Garrett was the best player.
I thought Koswall got the shaft and should be playing pro today.

so, I matched up each position of the JW team and I beat the others hands down, IMO.

i like most people voted for OP's team.  Based on talent ignoring injuries (Stimage) or coaching (bad for all 3).  Stimage, TH, Henry, Garret, Simpson, etc had some talent but no discipline.  Aside from Koshwal and Walker (maybe Stovall) Wainwright's team seems light on talent.  Who would be the next best Freeland, Kelly?  Regardless who you vote for it is an ugly winner.
