Default Precedent for the turnover?

Is there a precedent for this amount of turnover on a roster, and the results the first year after? With Polla gone, this means OU turned over 8 players...
  1. Aaron Calixte
  2. Miles Reynolds
  3. Christian James
  4. Hannes Polla
  5. Matt Freeman
  6. Rashard Odomes
  7. Ty Lazenby
  8. Jamuni McNease

The following players have never played in an OU uniform before:
  1. Austin Reaves
  2. Alondes Williams
  3. Jalen Hill
  4. Anyang Garang
  5. Devion Harmon
  6. Rick Isaanza
  7. Corbin Merritt
  8. Victor Iwukar
  9. *Kur Kuath (played in 6 games)

What is the precedent for this? Is chemistry and all that overrated and the only thing that really matters is there are apparent talent upgrades?

I would think the good news is.... the 3 primary returning players (Manek, Doolittle, and Bienemy) are good foundation players and experienced. Which means you are really only plugging in 2 new starters in, which is likely Reaves and Harmon. Harmon being highly rated and Reaves being a D1 transfer.

So if you think about it from just the starting 5 perspective, its 2 new guys.... The rest of the new guys are backups.

Not so bad when you think about it that way....

Kentucky turns that many over every year. It takes them time to gel, but they are usually clicking by conference season. Obviously we don't have that level of talent, but whatever chemistry issues may exist should be gone by mid year.

Reaves has been around the program an entire year already as has Kuath. I'd say any worries of chemistry issues due to newness aren't warranted with those two. With Harmon being committed for so long and making so many trips you'd have to think he's pretty well acclimated with the team already as well.

It may actually stop the trend of us starting hot & ending cold.

Now, hopefully we actually show progress throughout the season. It would really suck if we started cold & ended cold lol.

As stated before 5 main contributors will be back. Chemistry I think will be solid, identifying roles and player acceptance will be the big key. It will get sorted out but how long is just a guess. Not only for the new guys but Bienemy’s role is going to to change.

McNeace, Odomes, James and Freeman were four years guys, so there has also been more than enough stability on our roster to eliminate any concerns about turnover.

Reaves & Kur. I meant expected contributors for this coming year, I also am not sure Kur will be but I still listed him. Both were part of the program last year so the coaches know the attitude an abilities both will bring.
