    Default College Basketball 2008-09

    Now that the NCAA College Basketball season has tipped off, it is about time we had a place to discuss it. I am excited for the DeRozen era at USC.

    I will get us started with this semi-college hoops related Craigslist listing: Any Kentucky fans here?

    First Orange game is on Sunday, my roommates and I are waiting for our friend back at school to hook up a slingbox so we can watch every game. Our season starts a little late, but we make up for it by being in a tournament with Florida, Kansas, and Washington.

    That dunkin Wildcat kinda creeps me out.

    Anyway, I'm a HUGE college basketball junkie. North Carolina fan here. Obviously I'm pretty optimistic heading into the season. Hopefully Tyler Hansbrough's injury isn't worse than what they're saying. If UNC plays their A game, nobody will beat them. I'm sure Dook will give them good games, though. I know there's a Dook fan on this board, so it should be fun talking basketball this season.

    luckyface, DeRozen at USC should be fun to watch. Do you think he picks up all or most of the scoring that O.J. Mayo took with him?

    Syracuse is flying under the radar heading into the season. That seems to be when Boeheim gets his teams to perform the best (see 1996 and 2003). The Big East is pretty lethal again this year.

    No kidding. So friggin' disturbing. Kentucky rednecks are something else.

    Honestly, I am not sure what to expect from him. I don't think he will have as much of a role in the offense as Mayo had, but I think he will bring a lot to the table. He will be more explosive and entertaining to watch, that's for sure. Just seeing his YouTube videos from high school are enough to get you really pumped about his potential.

    I am also interested to see if Lil Romeo actually steps on the court this year.

    Definitely true, we usually have our best seasons when we start out between 20-30 in the preseason polls. If Donte' had stayed, we would be overrated going into this season, but I think I like our chances with this line up better.

    Big East is pretty brutal, but some of the teams that everyone expects to be in the top 25 fall by the wayside every season. my guess for this year is Nova.

    You should start another thread for intramural hoops. I don't remember the Titans (see what I did there) having a good team. I just remember them having a player named Bobby Brown. Gotta love that.

    I think they'll challenge for the SEC title this year. Last year was a transition year, this year they will be ready for a decent run.

    Well we did make the Tourney last year if that counts for anything. We just got knocked out in the first round cause we had to play Wisconsin, who were ridiculously good.
