COLLEGE HOOPS

The sport of dancing, fans chanting horrible things at kids in opposing jerseys, and the sweet sweet art of making children cry.

Tonight the frequently meaningless regular season starts, and we start the slow process of eliminating aproximatley 10 teams from contention for the NCAA tournament so the remaining 300 can play in a single elimination tournament that comprises one of the greatest sporting events known to man.

Here are our preseason polls:

Associated Press
1 Duke (55)
2 Michigan State (8)
3 Kansas State (2)
4 Ohio State
5 Pittsburgh
6 Villanova
7 Kansas
8 North Carolina
9 Florida
10 Syracuse
11 Kentucky
12 Gonzaga
13 Illinois
14 Purdue
15 Missouri
16 Baylor
17 Butler
18 Washington
19 Memphis
20 Georgetown
21 Virginia Tech
22 Temple
23 Tennessee
24 BYU
25 San Diego State

ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll
1 Duke (29)
2 Michigan State (2)
3 Kansas State
4 Pittsburgh
5 Ohio State
6 Villanova
7 Kansas
8 Purdue
9 North Carolina
10 Kentucky
11 Florida
12 Gonzaga
13 Syracuse
14 Baylor
15 Missouri
16 Illinois
17 Washington
18 Butler
19 Memphis
20 Tennessee
21 Georgetown
22 Temple
23 Virginia Tech
24 Wisconsin
25 Texas


Sadly, the Duke Blue Devils who blundered into a championship last year and broke the hearts of college basketball fans everywhere by denying us a true mid major champion are ranked #1 in both polls and are favorite to repeat.

But take heart my friends, for the following will always be true.

    i'm excited to see bc play

    i'm not optimistic about their chances, with a new coach and a new system, but at least the program seems to be headed in a better direction after it stagnated under skinner for a few years

    they play in the old spice classic starting on thanksgiving, open with a&m and play wisconsin if they win

    I was sort of not sure what to expect from Maryland coming into this season, given that we just graduated the best class we've had since the Dixon/Blake/Baxter team that won the 2002 championship.

    Vasquez (my favorite Terp ever), Hayes, and Milbourne are all gone. But Jordan Williams is going to be one of the best bigs in the country, not just the ACC, the country and we have a couple of freshman points, one of which has the amazing name of Pe'Shon Howard who I already feel is going to a stud.

    i watched the grizzlies-celtics game the other night and vazquez got his first serious playing time of the year and looked pretty good off the bench

    i think he has the potential to be a decent backup point guard, he brings a lot of energy off the bench

    I am torn that my boy Stevie Blake has a great shot to be a key part of an NBA championship team this year. Except it's the fucking Lakers, bluh.

    I quite like Texas basketball which is one of the more random Texas sports to like. I think I just like rooting for mediocre teams with great talent.

    I think Indiana has some nice recruits on the way, so that'll help. They're not in an Iowa situation, where they can barely recruit anyone, and the ones they do manage to recruit end up transferring after getting busted for DUIs or whatever

    He led a shitty basketball team to win a championship a lot of people thought he didn't deserve.

    Therefore, he is hated and despised by anybody who does not go to Duke.
