Re: University of Kentucky Men's Basketball -- 7th Edition
If what I think happens next year happens (Bazz and Noel), we could very well be back in the Final Four discussion again. We have a sick recruiting class, and even if we lose everybody, college basketball as a whole will be down next year.
What I think will be hard to duplicate with future teams is the senior leadership. Cal's teams at Kentucky have had a glue guy and this year it was Darius Miller. Last year Harrellson, the year before Stevenson, Harris, and to a lesser extent Patterson. Next years team won't have a senior leader, and in situations where you need a calming influence, it could cost Kentucky some games.
I think we could be back easily to the Final Four next year, or we could get bounced in the Sweet 16 for that reason.
