Many are going to be running straight to the Wildcats in this one, but we aren’t all that sure that that is all that great of an idea. This team looks absolutely nothing like the club that won 38 games and the National Championship last year, and with a lack of returners, there is no doubt that this team is going to have to take on an entirely new personality. Granted, this team has all of the talent in the world once again, but you never know whether Nerlens Noel is going to be the next Anthony Davis or not. Sure, he is projected to be that way, and Head Coach John Calipari rarely misses on these top prospects, but nothing is guaranteed until we really see these guys suit up. Maryland isn’t a joke this year. This club has retooled with some great players, and we expect to see this team back in the NCAA Tournament this year. Dez Wells is going to be in the fold after getting cleared to play from his transfer from the Xavier Musketeers, and he is going to be bringing a huge spark to a team that needs to replace its top scorer, Terrell Stoglin. Don’t be all that shocked if this one is a heck of a lot closer than the so called college basketball experts think.
