Editor's Early Preview (9/15):
You never know what you'll get from Louisville, so this neutral court affair against Ole Miss could be surprisingly close.. or the Cards could roll by 20+. You just don't know. Andy Kennedy and the Rebels had hopes of earning an at-large bid this season, but a recent blow out loss to New Mexico really hurt the cause. Louisville's front-line could have a field-day here.
That's why it's so painful for me to admit that maybe, just maybe, if I take a step back and look objectively, if I just allow myself to say it, if I want to be truthful....

With a plethora of talented players no longer in the league (Marreese Speights, Joe Crawford, Chris Lofton, Shan Foster, Richard Hendrix, Anthony Randolph), some new talented players to get excited about (Scotty Hopson, JaMychal Green, Darius Miller), some familiar faces returning to action (Ronald Steele, Tasmin Mitchell) and two fresh faces on the sidelines (Trent Johnson and Darrin Horn), the SEC is going to be mighty interesting this season.

Polynice had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday. The procedure was a follow-up to an initial injury at the end of last season, when he missed the Rebels' first-round NIT game against UC Santa Barbara.
