It’s awesome baby! But it could be more awesome, I suppose.
Legendary color commentator Dick Vitale released his preseason top four in a replied tweet to Gary Parrish. Parrish said he was leaning towards putting Kansas as his top team before Vitale replied.

Well, shucks folks. Second isn’t so bad to start the season. The Jayhawks returning LeGerald Vick last week wasn’t great news for UK. Vick had declared for the NBA, but supposedly never hired an agent and quietly withdrew from the draft.
People seem to forget about Tennessee. The Vols are returning virtually everyone from a good 2017-2018 team, but Tennessee also lost in the first round of the NCAA Tournament as a three seed.
Regardless, UK should be top two to start the season and I’ll take that every preseason. It’s better than being unranked to start the year like another school down the road.
