ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Dave Brandon took over Michigan's athletic department four years ago with so many of the right qualifications: success as a businessman, experience as a university regent - and he'd played football for Bo Schembechler, too.

That football program is the barometer of sporting success at Michigan, but the Wolverines have fallen on hard times recently.

Those struggles - and the handful of other problems they helped magnify - led to the end of Brandon's tenure as athletic director.

Kentucky tops AP preseason poll again

(AP) -- The story seems to be the same every season at Kentucky: Lose star players to the NBA, replace them with another group of one-and-doners, compete for a national championship.

The Wildcats changed the script this season: This year, the fabulous freshmen will be surrounded by other former McDonald's All-Americans who played for the NCAA title just seven months ago - a team so deep and talented that coach John Calipari is considering a platoon system.

Kentucky planning to use platoon system

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) This year's Kentucky roster is unusually deep even for a program used to having an abundance of talent.

Besides returning six regulars from a freshman-laden squad that lost 60-54 to Connecticut in the NCAA championship, the Wildcats added four prized recruits to form a deep nucleus and begin another year with high expectations for a ninth national title.

Florida unlikely to repeat success

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) Florida's record-setting run through the Southeastern Conference and the NCAA tournament last season will be difficult, maybe even impossible, to top.

The Gators won a program-best 30 consecutive games, set another mark with 32 straight home wins, became the first team to go 18-0 in the SEC's regular season, swept the league tournament and earned the top overall seed in the NCAA tournament for the second time.

Beilein says Michigan still has leaders

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) When John Beilein first took over at Michigan, he envisioned a roster with plenty of continuity from year to year.

"We were always going to have veterans. We were going to maybe recruit under-the-radar guys who were going to stay for four years, and we'd have these great Senior Nights," Beilein said Thursday at media day. "It hasn't worked that way. It's worked well, but I don't want to tell you that was my plan - to get top-100 guys and they'd be in the pros (after) two years, but it's worked well for everybody."

Tennessee set to go after major makeover

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Just seven months after playing in the NCAA regional semifinals, Tennessee is being picked to finish near the bottom of the Southeastern Conference.

Rarely has a team coming off a Sweet 16 appearance been held in such low regard. Then again, this Tennessee team bears only a passing resemblance to the squad that made that postseason run.
