    Post your hopes, thoughts, teams you love, teams you love to hate, and anything else related to NCAA Basketball here!

    Personally, I'm an Illini fan. Went to school there when they went to the Championship game and got hosed by Sean "Six Step No Travel" May. I'm not bitter anymore, not at all. This year will be challenging, I'm predicting 17 wins and no tournament birth. Some nice recruits coming in and it seems like we have the right guy steering the ship. Oh yeah, I fucking hate IU.

    Love the Heels. Have been a fan my whole life. I think they will have a nice year, and def get a tourny bid. I don't expect them to go too far though. Depending on a lot of young guys this year so hopefully they live up to the hype. Also need our leading scorer to stay out of jail.

    Hate Duke. I refuse to even post a pic of that garbage.

    I'm a big fan of Texas A&M, but it's going to be a long season of trying to exceed 50 points a game for the Aggies and Billy Kennedy. Sometimes I wish we still had Billy Gillispies drunk ass roaming the sideline.

    I also bought CU season tickets this season because they are on the up and up and tix were cheap. It could be a tough ticket in a year or two. Tad Boyle coached at my alma mater before heading to Boulder and also went to my high school. /cool story

    My brother in law is a KU alum and I had some friends go to undergrad/law school there so I find myself rooting for them. Bill Self is awesome and the KU fans are great so I don't mind yelling rock chalk every now and then.

    Dickie V and Lou Holtz both need to hang em up and leave ESPN. Of course they'll just be replaced by some younger blowhard.

    Love college basketball, much prefer watching it over the NBA.

    Don't really have a favorite school, (my alum plays 1AA or whatever it's called now) I just root for West Coast teams when the tourney starts.

    GUS!

    That was awesome, I do kind of root for UW more than any other team. Will never forget how ridiculous this game was.

    Miami (FL) and Duke fan here. Miami graduated (or left for draft) almost all of their best players, so this looks to be a rebuilding year. Duke has another preseason top-5 ranking, so they should be great again!

    Anyone else watching the big games tonight? Kentucky looks like they might be putting it together early than Coach Calipari thought they would.

    Interested to see how LSU does this year but not expecting much.

    Looking forward to seeing if yogi can take that next step for IU

    Michigan fan here. It's virtually impossible to meet or exceed last year, but I still expect much from this season.

    Watched college basketball all day today. Kansas is going to be real good. They were the most impressive team I saw play tonight.

    SDSU Aztec fan personally. Have made it out to the conference championship tournament in Vegas the last few years and don't plan on missing it in the future if I'm able to go. Such a great time.
    Cheers! Go Aztecs!
