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.

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.

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.

Exactly-haha! Un-loaded (as compared to KU's loaded roster), De-cocked (as compared to the cocky Wall), Down-sized (as opposed to Twins' Hudy-ized), Gutted team (as compared to KU's gutty win vs Cornell)....

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

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

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