The Kentucky Wildcats will undoubtedly be one of the most talented teams in the nation next year. So talented in fact that there very well may be as many as eight future NBA players on the roster.
And with that much talent the expectations around the program are obviously very high. There has been plenty of talk around Lexington about Kentucky winning its eighth national title, rampaging through the SEC and even some talk about a possible undefeated season.
And who says that Kentucky fans aren't rational?
In fact, Kentucky fans are so sure about how good the team will be this year that the only real debates leading up to this season are about Joe B. Hall getting to coach a team of future pros and just exactly who will start for Kentucky next year.
Coach Calipari will have plenty of options and he has more experience on this year's team than he has ever had in Lexington. But he also has his most talented freshman class ever. So what's going to win out when it comes to getting those starting spots?
Here is what I envision will be Kentucky opening day starting lineup.
