    Big early season game tomorrow. It might be year 1 for Pearl, but the dude can coach (in addition to cheat). Our backcourt will receive a challenge. Buffs favored by 10.

    Selfishly pulling against lower end top 25 teams. I want in.

    Tuesday will tell us plenty about Utah and maybe Wichita St (Memphis did just lose an exhibition to Christian Brothers…)

    Holy ****. If we ever die as a society, I hope we leave this 24-hour spectacular for alien eyes to bare witness to.


    But seriously who plays a game at 5am! Or a 7am. Understand Hawaii but Iona?!

    They could play some games in Europe so fans don't need to go to the stadium so early/late. Maybe tie in with a tournament in Hawaii and one in Europe for those odd times.

    You are correct per Pearl. My best friend in HS and today, was an Indiana hoops all star and played at Auburn. Big fan of crap bball and great football!

    Says Pearl is recruiting huge already, but has substantially cleaned house on existing team. Does not think they have the depth and size to hang all game long. In this game we need to flex our muscle.

    We should have significant advantage. Hope that is a correct take.

    Oregon tied with Detroit early in the second half. It looks like Arizona, then six teams battling it out, and five bad teams in the PAC-12. I figure the conference can get six teams in the Dance, so we need to avoid bad losses all season. That's an obvious point, but one of CU, UCLA, ASU, UT, Furd, and maybe Cal is going to get left out.

    I think ASU is pretty darn weak this year minus Jahii. I think Washington and Oregon are both ahead of ASU, although I'd be surprised if any of them Danced.

    Not a bad loss for UF, despite blowing a double-digit 2nd half lead at home...Gators were clearly over-ranked at #8 (at most they should have been no higher than the #15-20 range, IMO), and this serves as a good reality check for them...

    AssU scored 16 points in the second half and barely beat Bethune Cookman (wut?) by 10. SIXTEEN POINTS.

    I can't wait to hear the lock down defense spin from ASU fans.

    Watching Utah @ SDSU.

    Our frontcourt is better than both of these teams.

    Early, but I think Utah's going to win unless SDSU gets hot from the outside.

    The Aztecs look overmatched inside.

    Both teams look lousy on offense. Hard to tell if it's good defense or just bad offense. Probably some of both.

    Utah looks real real rough on offense. On pace to score about 35...

    I can't believe a team with Delon Wright is unable to fill the bucket like this.

    sounds familiar. That's not really stopped him before though.

    Florida State falls to Northeastern. Feel like this has happened every year under Hamilton

    Watching Kentucky-Kansas right now. Rebounding edge is heavily in Kentucky's favor and that seems to be driving everything.

    That and the fact Kentucky challenges every frigging shot Kansas takes.

    Kentucky fans are on a level that overwhelms even KU. That's overwhelmingly UK in there.
