North Carolina 15:1
So....Vegas believes Cal will build all the chemistry he needs for a Natty this quick?
Interesting about UK. I actually think they might have a better chance of winning the national championship then the SEC. They have incredible talent, but have a lot of new cogs in the machine. I think they might struggle a bit early and lose some SEC games, particularly on the road. By the end of the season they might be very difficult to beat though.
I agree with a lot of what you're saying, but I think a team with this much talent will do well over the course of the SEC schedule. I might actually worry about a young team more in a one-and-done NCAA's type of situation - especially with the questions I have about this teams outside shooting ability.
I guess I would put my money on UK next year, if I had to pick a team to win it, but I think Vegas has them as too big a favorite right now. Too many unknowns at this point. Outside shooting, leadership, chemistry/unselfishness. We can only guess so accurately as to how those areas will look.
Unlike last year, I think there are going to be elite teams this year - and more than just one of them. I expect losses from UK early in the year. They've got 4 or 5 non conference games against ranked opponents - 2 of them (Mich St and UL) are going to be top 5 teams.
I'll eat my words if it happens, but I really can't see this UK team winning the title. The 4:1 is a sucker bet.
I agree. You never know what you're going to get when you replace most of your team every year. It's such a crapshoot, look at the UK team that lost in the NIT last year.
I thought Michigan would be an early favorite to get back to the title game. What happened, did they lose a lot of players?
Lost Burke & Hardaway Jr.
This year's Kentucky team on paper might be one of the most talented I've seen in some time, even surpassing their championship team a couple of seasons ago. I think the difference is that they don't return key cogs like Darius Miller, Terrence Jones, and Doron Lamb who were instrumental in helping Kentucky win it all, especially the outside shooting of Miller and Lamb which most Calipari teams usually lack.
But that monster kid at center is still hard to stop....no?
I think last year was their best chance at a title. I thought they were the best team and were going to win. They will be Top 10, but I don't see them winning it all.
