IMO, there's no way the '12-'13 team is close to the National Title team. Of course..they're not playing each other.
It just makes me nervous to start out so highly regarded with a roster I know so little about. All I can think of are some recent highly ranked flameouts -- K State and Michigan State a few years ago, UConn last year. I just don't have much confidence this early...but it will come.
I think the lack of tournament experience will hurt the upcoming team. Wiltjer is the only one with any experience at all and that isn't much. Saying that the 2010-11 team didn't have much experience either and came very close to winning it all. So you never know. I do think this years team will be a lot like the 10-11 team. They may takes some lumps,especially on the road. But in the end turn out pretty good.
