    Now that Clemson has defeated Bama and college football is over for a few months, has anyone started watching college basketball?

    It's very interesting so far. The Big 12 has three teams in the top 10 - though I'm sure it won't stay that way.

    I'm a West Virginia fan and they've beaten both Kansas and Baylor in Big 12 action. Let's Gooooooo Mountaineers!

    Yep, I'm a WVU fan when it comes to basketball.

    Taking the kids to see NC State vs Miami this weekend. I took 16 credit hours at State, so they're my local favorite.

    Should be a good game - though UM thumped them earlier in the year at home. But it's always different playing on the road. I've seen UM play a few times on TV and once in person. They are a good team and recently beat UNC (you should be happy about that). However, they are lacking a true point guard and that can hurt them. Enjoy!

    Big 12 continues to have three in the top 10 - Baylor, Kansas and West Virginia. That's pretty amazing for any conference, much less for one that only has ten universities. Game of the week is on Wednesday night - Baylor at Kansas. Should be a good game, but hard to beat Kansas on any court - much less at home.

    The Big 12 is the best conference in college basketball IMHO. They're making up for their shortcomings in football this past season. :Wink

    I'm just wondering how many heart attacks happened in Syracuse at that shot!
