...EVERYONE is assuming that all 3 underclassmen--Bell, Brooks, Dorsey--are gone, or at least 2 are gone, to the pros.
Read somewhere that ASSUMING all 3 stayed at Oregon, they would likely be #1 to start the season. Not hard to refute. Kentucky will be good, too.
Ok, maybe #2 or #3. Not a big deal. But you only lose Ennis and Boucher, and you get a #10 recruiting class coming in next year, plus a number of bigs off of redshirting (Paul White and MJ Cage).
Oregon started the season at #5 this year, I think. Will end at #3. With all 3 gone next season, I don't think Oregon deserves to even be ranked--just too many new pieces.
(Oddly enough, hearing that of the 3, Brooks might be the most likely one to stay...also hearing that Bell is definitely gone.)
