We're Supposed to Be Good Next Year

Season wrapup stuff will get started any day, now. Ideally, sometime before the weekend. And yes, I know that it's been nearly two weeks since we last played basketball. And yes, I understand that most of you have moved on. But I haven't, and content needs to feel these pages. So, whatever.

Before we get into wrapping up the 2008-2009 season, it's time to...look ahead to next season. You know, hope springs eternal, all of that fun stuff. And, as we've speculated here at RCT, we are looking fabulous so far in preseason rankings. So, victory.

Of course, this is assuming that Cole and Sherron come back. Which certainly isn't a sure thing. Not by a longshot. But, whatever. It also doesn't include any other potential incoming recruits, like Lance Stephenson or Xavier Henry (plus CJ!).

But, the pressure's on, now. We've gotta win it all, or we are utter failures. I won't even watch a single game until we reach Indianapolis. Swear.

I mean, we're already a shoo-in to get that far, right? The polls released 7 months before games are being played said so!

With all of that entirely seroius, joke-free banter aside, here is a table of all of the already-released rankings.

I have to say, my favorite part is the fact that Dick Vitale ranked...his Top 5. Way to go out on a limb, there, bud. Don't want to do any actual research, huh, Dickie V? Yeah, didn't think so.

So, yeah. Get your hopes up. We win it all, or we fail.

Nothing like some pressure, eh?

But seriously, the season review is pending soon. Hopefully.
