    I'm surprised there isn't at least one comment about UNM's victory over UConn from Tommy.
    10/8 - Little Dragon @ Marquee (Tempe, AZ)
    10/11 - Carolina Chocolate Drops @ Rialto Theater (Tucson, AZ)
    11/10 - The Black Keys @ US Airways Center (Phoenix, AZ)
    4/10/15 - 4/12/15 - Coachella

    UNM is a better team than is UConn, so it's not like there's an upset I have to gloat about.

    The Lobos still have a ton to work on if they're going to compete with UNLV and San Diego State for the MWC title. They're certainly capable of it, though. Their big men need to work on not putting the ball on the floor whenever they touch it. Also, the offense is a bit inefficient right now. It's either a 3-pointer, or drive and hope to get fouled. They're a TOUGH team, though, which is the Alford way. They definitely don't lack effort.

    Honestly, I think UConn will probably struggle in Big East play. They don't have much of an inside game, and the guards are erratic. I would like to this this is a resume type of win for UNM, but I don't see it. Davidson has been UNM's best win so far this season.

    Potential upset in the making. Butler up by 19 in the 2nd vs. North Carolina.

    That wouldn't be an upset. The only thing that would be an upset is HOW Butler is winning, not that they are.

    I'll be honest, the level of play in college basketball pretty much sucks this season. Not one team sticks out. This is going to be another ugly NCAA Tournament.

    An unranked team beating the #9 team in the country isn't an upset? Okay.

    It really isn't. North Carolina is WAY too high at #9. I picked Butler to win this game coming in. That's the nature of this college basketball this season. There are like 40+ decent team just all bunched together.

    Notre Dame beats Kentucky.

    Man, people say this season isnt that "great," and while I can agree with that statement I think there are a lot of really good teams that just are playing poorly. Youth, stupid games in foreign countries and outside on boats? My team holds a number 9 ranking for doing just about shit? Its just early.

    Just watch this tournament be one of the best in years.

    The Tournament will probably be great because it could be competitive and unpredictable. Poorly-played close games are still exciting, I suppose.

    Figures that I'd be the one to bring some sense into this thread. Duke's just knocking all the other contenders off the block already.

    As much as I hate Duke I have to agree with this. I'm not sure who I would take between Duke and Indiana in a neutral site game at this moment though.

    Duke shouldn't be taken seriously until they sack up and play a road game out west again.

    As a Florida fan I am very much looking forward to that game. I don't think Marquette and Wisconsin has told us a lot about the team. That game certainly will.

    I might be in the first row/on the floor for that game. I'll be there regardless though.

    Good get for the dookies. He'll fit in well over there. They have a really strong team coming back, and they'll be adding Rodney Hood, Parker, and Matt Jones to an experienced group. Andre Dawkins is also returning after sitting out this year. Damn, heh.

    I'm mostly interested to see where Andrew Wiggins lands. The favorites look to be Kentucky, North Carolina, and Florida State. This guy appears to be the absolute real deal. Possibly the best prospect since LeBron. Not a guarantee of future success, but he's good enough to be considered in that company.

    Good get for Duke. Interesting to see if he can continue playing at a high level coming off that stress fracture.

    I'm hearing that Arizona is feeling more and more confident in Aaron Gordon.

    While reading this, I kept waiting for the punchline but it never came. Well said and very true.

    Tubby's Gophers have only 1 loss so far- Duke. I don't even think they played all that bad in that game. They just couldn't make any crucial stops down the stretch (as you fb friends know I'm Tubby's biggest critic, so I'm not being a homer when I make these comments). We'll find out how good or bad they are pretty fast. The early part of the Big Ten schedule is brutal- Of their 1st 5 conference games- 4 of them are aginst Michigan St, Indiana, Illinois and Michigan. If they go 3-2 or even 2-3 in that stretch, it should at least get a little easier after for them to go on a run.

    Looking forward to all the comments about how Mizzou was obviously over ranked and how they lost it for themselves and how UCLA didn't earn the win.

    Not true, Mizzou is very good, but UCLA is one of the 5 most talented teams in College basketball. They've been a mess so far, and if they were to of played my beloved Wildcats even a month ago, the walk-ons would have seen some time at the end of the game. Now, I'm glad we have someone else to vie for the Pac12 regular season title. Also, UCLA was favored in the game, so obviously this shouldn't be considered an upset (even though to the naked eye it seems to be one).

    I don't buy this. San Diego State beat them solidly. Jamal Franklin handled Shabazz no problem. I know, tough to compare a freshman with a Jr.
