Surprise! The "Fab Five" are not the No. 1 team on our list of badass teams. But, for the record, they very well could be. After making plenty of headlines during their freshman season in 1991-92, this team had the experience, the talent, the swagger, and those knee-high black socks on their side when they started their sophomore season. And they were every bit as dominant as we thought they'd be in the months leading up to the 1993 NCAA Tournament. The only knock against them? Webber's tragic timeout that caused them to lose in the title game. If they had a title to their name—or, rather, a vacated title to their name (SMH)—they'd be No. 1 here. But regardless of where they rank, there's no question that this team was badass.
