    NCAA Basketball

    When does the new season start?
    When will there be college games on TV?
    I can't figure that out from their website.
    Quendelie axan!

    There are games next Monday but next Friday is when it really starts. Check ESPN's website.

    If you a desperate for college basketball. ESPN3.com has Louisville's exhibition game against a D3 school online to watch. I am amongst the desperate and have watched it.

    Ah, I see that St John's and Kentucky both have exhibition games available to watch.

    If you are a Big10 fan, BTN.com has exhibition games available, I believe you have to pay by the month. Don't forget to cancel your subscription once the regular season starts.

    The University of Illinois (my team) has their first game on TV on 11/17 against Lipscomb

    If you like good college basketball, you may want to wait until Feast Week (the week of Thanksgiving in the US) when many of the preseason tournaments are going on, or the Big10-ACC challenge which is on Tues Nov 29 and 30th.

    I don't like watching live US games because of the time difference. I prefer to sleep and watch the game the next day.
    I thought the NCAA season had started at the end of October as most over legues start then.

    Once the season starts there should be some games available on the more popular torrent sites.

    College basketball is irrelevant until March.

    Well there's no NBA season so college basketball should get an uptick in interest.

    NBA is always irrelevant.

    I laugh at the douches ****ing up their season.

    A lot of the NBA fan support is soft. Missing games is incredibly stupid.

    I saw a report the other day that soccer (yes, soccer) had passed NBA in attendance. And they are squabbling over money?? Stupid.

    Actually, though NCAA basketball doesn't mean much until late December when they start conference play.

    Perhaps the most "interesting" game to be played in November will be UNC vs Michigan State. On an aircraft carrier. In San Diego. On Veterans Day. I can't wait to watch the wind blow a three point attempt over the side of the ship.

    That's this Friday, right? It will take place on the USS Carl Vinson, the same ship that carried Osama bin Laden's body out to its burial at sea. First Hoopster Obama will, of course, attend.

    Did anyone watch the carrier game? I was out on Friday night and didn't get a chance to see it. Did the setting affect the game? Was it a cool thing to watch, not just think about?

    On-board setting did not seem to affect the game.

    UNC is looking pretty good.

    The only issue was the decals on the floor. They caused some minor injuries.

    We can put ourselves on Jim Boeheim firing watch.
    http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports...,3263963.story

    ALBANY, N.Y. — Syracuse University Chancellor Nancy Cantor gave men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim a vote of confidence Tuesday amid an investigation of child molestation allegations against his former longtime assistant coach.

    Cantor emerged from an economic development conference with state officials and said: "Coach Boeheim is our coach."

    Some commentators and sex abuse victims' advocates had said Boeheim should resign or be fired after three men, including two former Syracuse ballboys, accused Bernie Fine of molesting them and Boeheim verbally attacked the accusers.
    How long until Boeheim gets the same boot Paterno did?

    For me the season starts with the BIG10 ACC challenge. Especially now that the outcome isn't a given. Go BIG10.

    Good start for the Big 10 so far...

    Ohio St. pounded Duke 85 to 63
    Michigan SUCKED against Virginia and lost 70 to 58
    Northwestern cruised past Georgia Tech 76 - 60
    Illinois beat Maryland 71 - 62
    Purdue got past Miami 76- 65
    Iowa lost to Clemson 71 - 55

    GO BIG 10!

    Final tally, the BIG10 wins for the third year in a row 8-4. Well done.

    Yep. Championships mean something. Conference vs. conference games in December, do not.

    College basketball doesn't matter until March.

    Excellent article about Xavier - Cincy game from the other night. I couldn't believe the fight or the comments by the Cincy player after the game about having a "bunch of gangsters" on the team. No excuse for how they acted and Zuba is correct about kicking these guys off team and cancelling their scholarships.

    http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2011/12/...ampaign=215571

    On PTI they were talking about this issue and Tony said he was surprised by the use of the word gangster. Wilbon says it doesn't mean the same thing in "his community". Sorry, but that is not an excuse. They should know what it means to much of America and not use that term.

    Wilbon's talking about the white community he lives in.
