Glad to see Illinois staying on their roll. Things falling into place this year....finally. Maybe it was just Bruce. lol

Big 10 is crazy. Not used to seeing 5 teams that many think are better or at least equal to MSU (we will see come conference season though, right?). It should only help the teams in the long run, but am not looking forward to the loss total by season's end. lol

Turnovers and not letting teams shoot threes like in the Miami game will be key. Also, Nix and Payne gotta man the **** up. I love Appling, Harris and Dawson. Trice and Valentine are decent backups as well. But if Nix/Payne aren't gonna put up more than 10 points (at best) each game then they gotta start averaging 10+ rpg or something. Own the offensive boards even more than they do. I'd love there to be a good post scorer, but if the perimeter players can handle that for the most part, then hopefully the bigs can focus on not looking like lost girls out there at times.

I guess if there's a "good thing" about Purdue being so young it's that the Big Ten's gonna be crazy this year so all those kids will get ample quality experience. Might look like a whole different team come late February, but I kinda doubt it.

If Illinois can stay undefeated until The New Year rolls around it will be pretty impressive.

Apparently the catholic schools:

St Johns
Georgetown
Marquette
Providence
Villanova
Seton Hall
DePaul

are leaving the Big East for a new conference.

They're attempting to create a basketball driven league. Football drives the money bus, but those schools get little money from football anyway. It's a pretty smart idea to capitalize on a market everyone is ignoring, all while utilizing the strength of their athletic department.

It's looking worse and worse for schools like Connecticut and Cincinnati

If they can get the A-10 schools they want, that will be a heck of a conference

Not gonna lie...I had no idea all of those schools were Catholic schools. I mean I knew St. John's and Providence were, but not the rest.

Some good games to watch on tv today. Butler/Indiana, Alabama/VCU (just to see VCU), New Mexico St/New Mexico.

Then Florida/Arizona online later.

Games I won't get to see, but should pay attention to, are: Louisville vs Memphis, K-State vs Gonzaga (may have to watch this one).

I must be going insane, because I swear Dex (Strickland) can be a PG in the NBA after watching the last few games.

Can't remember the last time I loved watching a college player as much as Oladipo.

Defense, slashing to the basket, crashing the boards like a mad man with the eye-popping athleticism. Damn I would love to see the Bulls draft him.
