08:22 AM ET 10.12 | In addition to title hopes and an ability to sign top recruits seemingly at will, John Calipari's program is associated with the theme of transition from year to year. There are plenty of challenges for the University of Kentucky basketball team as it tries to repeat as NCAA champion. It has been done only twice in the last 38 years, for starters. The Wildcats also lost their top six players from the title team, including the top two picks in the NBA draft. But perhaps paramount to UK's quest for another crown -- since coach John Calipari restocked the talent pool with yet another top-rated recruiting class -- is leadership. Where will it come on a team with five newcomers?

I think Wiltjer will be this year. Taking on the Darius Miller role. The guy that wasn't good enough to go NBA. They are not that close to last years team. They'll be good but just don't see it playing out this year.
