There's always next year. It's just the nature of being a sports fan.
Players had not emerged from Anderson County's locker room after the Final Four loss to Marion County Saturday when people were already talking about 2014.
It could be one of those rare instances when the expectations could be warranted as the Lady Bearcats will probably be one of the favorites to win the whole shebang next year.
Let that sink in for a minute: Anderson will be one of the teams given strong consideration as the team to beat in Kentucky in 2014.
