1) all the buzz today is about UK's landing of 4 5-star hoops stars including no.1 PG john wells. Let's assume Meeks and Patterson jump, which, if that happens, could potentially leave Calipari with 5 freshman starters. The last time we saw this sort of nonsense was Michigan's Fab Five. By the time you factor in the new coach, you are looking at possibly the most cleared table in NCAA history. What will UK do with this roster of young bucks and the new skipper? What is their ultimate upside?
2) Some oddsmakers have futures lines up for next year's NCAA championship. Not surprisingly Kansas is getting the best odds at 6-1. With UK's latest news they come in second as 10-1. BUT THE BIG SHOCKER is that in UofL checked in with the third best odds of cutting down the nets at 12-1. For reals!?! I figure we are probably a little worse off then we were last year. Which is to say, we're going to be good. We'll contend for a Big East title and we'll make a run in March. But am I missing something? Are we way better than I think we are?
