From Dickie V: “The good times will continue to roll in the Bluegrass State. I believe we will see a trifecta — three years in a row, a team from the state will walk away with a national championship. Two years ago, it was John Calipari and diaper dandies Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist cutting down the nets in New Orleans. Then it was a gutty, tenacious Louisville winning it all in Atlanta, beating a solid Michigan team. There will be lots of jubilation for the fans of both Kentucky and Louisville ahead. They are going to be special. Both teams are loaded, though they are being built differently.
The Wildcats have great depth thanks to an outstanding recruiting class. I honestly believe that Kentucky’s second team would be good enough to be ranked in the top 20 by themselves! I know there were plenty of detractors looking at last year’s squad.”
