VCU is one of those teams that doesn't lose much. I'd expect to see them high in the rankings early and often. Creighton, Butler (adding Rotnei Clark), San Diego State all look to be ready (and more experienced) for a run.
Look at those early top 25 projections for next year and see if any of those teams stop you and make you think about how good they should be based on what they have coming back.
Yes, even Louisville and IU are reaches, if you will. As Wily points out, they were inconsistent last year.
