I am not sure "depleted" is the correct verb. We shall see if these four were "vital."

"I am not sure 'depleted' is the correct verb."

"Depleted" is used as an adjective, not a "verb" there grammar guy.

ralster (anonymous) says... Perhaps more appropriate would be "recently un-loaded Tennessee team"...

As in S&W 9mm?

OK. I am not sure it is the right adjective. It is a verb used as an adjective, pedant. I doubt their team is depleted.

Given the open container and scent of cannabis in the car, perhaps more appropriately it should be "formerly-loaded-but-more-recently-unloaded Tennessee team." The late, great Dr. Bremner might have called that a compound adjectival phrase.

KU crushes a disorganized team of guys trying too hard, 89-63.

Unfortunately, they weren't "depleted," but we were defeated.

BTW MARINEHAWK what you mean is that "depleted" wasn't the predicate. Of course, I didn't say it was.
