College Basketball Thread

    If this year is teaching me anything, it's that if you make the top 10, you better just get resigned to the fact you're getting an L in the next couple days. Which will make it really fun when my bracket gets busted on the first weekend due to the higher seeds winning 30 of 32 games on Thursday and Friday.

    I’m pretty out of the college loop. What are some non obvious fun/good teams to watch?

    Oklahoma. I know they are highly ranked, but Trae Young is must see TV.

    Yeah I caught some of their last game. He didn’t let down

    Trae Young is insane. 

    Ive enjoyed watching Rhode Island (semi local kid, EC Mathews), Nevada and Boise State on the mid-major side. Then, Ohio State, Purdue (kill me), Arizona, Oklahoma, Wichita State and Clemson (another local kid, Mark Donnal) as far as more major teams go. Duke is insanely deep, but I haven’t really found their games to be much fun to watch.

    Zavier Simpson fails on 2 FT and MD drains a trey with 3 sec left to take a 1 pt lead on Mich. But foul called on MD after a half court  pass and a drive and Mich pulls it out by 1.

    I’ve not watched a lot but twice now Simpson has struggled closing out games

    Ali just got screwed on that 5th foul. Awful

    Mon, Jan 15, 2018 11:09 PM

    Settled for a challenge 3 so many times

    Tough loss by WVU....huge win by Kansas

    I was laughing a couple weeks ago when Kansas lost to Texas Tech (I think) and ESPN immediately went to the "their domination of the Big 12 might be over" card. I was like, "Jebus, shut the fuck up you 'tards. They always seem to lose a game or two early on and look vulnerable and then win 13 straight and, boom, there's another league title."

    Lol yeah, that’s a classic espn hot take. 

    That being said, this team isn’t that good over an entire regular season. They’re going to lose some games. They can beat anyone but can also lose to anyone. Without billy Preston, I’m not sure how they’re going to string 6 consecutive wins in March. This is not a Kansas team that I’d bet on.

    Carolina takes on Clemson tonight, trying for 59-0 at home vs the Tigers. For the first time that I can remember I am actually nervous about this game.

    For reasons I’m not sure but each of the last 4 years I have went with Kansas on my tournament brackets. Not looking that way this season but a lot left still.

    Was it in recent years Clemson had them but blew it? Probably just misremembering
