Julius Mays (not SEC caliber), Kyle Wiltjer, and Ryan Harrow (like Wiltjer, only played one season of college ball) isn't exactly "plenty" of upperclassmen and their ability to lead is very much in question.
No one is denying that UK won't be good. They'll be a top program, but to consider this a lateral move and that they should be considered championship favorites is being a bit naive. I'd be impressed if they made to the Final Four again. I think Sweet 16 is more likely. Noel isn't nearly as good as Davis and Poythress isn't nearly as developed physically as MKG. Harrow, on the other hand, might actually be an upgrade over Teague.
