LEXINGTON, Ky. - Kentucky has announced its 2012-13 men's basketball non-conference schedule.

I'm a bit reserved on these boys. If Cal can get these dudes to play as a well oiled machine. He's quite frankly the GREATEST.
I was bullish before last season, I predicted the overall losses and even guaranteed a National Championship. I was correct on all. (look it up)
This year I predict a bit of turmoil.
I hope I'm WRONG!!!!
I'm bearish at the moment.

Turmoil? What's got you thinking that way?

I'm not going to predict anything other than we will be over .500 but you must have heard some rumblings.

It's silly to think this team will come in and gel as well as last year and obviously the players are different. It's extremely hard to replace a Kidd-Gilchrist or a Davis but I don't know enough about this bunch to make a prediction. Lamb will be tough to replace but I haven't really seen Mays play. Teague struggled early last year, as most of Cal's freshman points do, but Harrow may break that trend since he is more mature. Wiltjer may be a lot stronger now. Noel may be able to step in for Davis but we don't really know that yet.
Poythress has a chance to be more physical and aggressive than Jones, which I feel is very likely.

I just hope there is not an ego problem. I believe that's the main reason last year's team did so well.
