2012-13 College Basketball Thread

Bit surprised to not see one of these around. College ball tipped off last night with some decent games and some great laughs.

Some highlights (or Not Top 10 candidates):

- Another year, another great event for the troops from Michigan State with a game vs. UConn in the Armed Forces Classic at the Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany, regardless of the outcome for Sparty. There's a lot of moving/young parts for State, combined with an always tough early Izzo schedule, results in the team taking some early lumps.

I fully expect them to grow and challenge Indiana in the B1G. Good showing by UConn beginning their (sort of) post Calhoun era. How odd was that seeing him courtside commentating on the game? I hope he distances himself from the program a bit.

- On the flip side, how about those copycat gimmick carrier matchups all getting cancelled or delayed? 0/3 in 2012, way to go. Sorry, but no one can match the matchup (MSU vs. UNC), day (Veterans Day and 11-11-11), atmosphere and uniqueness of the original last year. FL/G'town had to call it quits after one half and Marquette/OSU didn't even get started. The SDSU/Syracuse carrier game was pushed back to Sunday, but who cares at this point? Time to put this event to bed. No one can top the first and the results this year were pitiful.

- UK slipped by a young and impressive Maryland team last night thanks to a former walk on bench guard, Jarrod Polson. Nerlens Noel looked over-matched.

I know there was a nice set of other games out there last night, but I'll leave things at that.

It would be nice to see this thread go a whole season and not just March Madness like seems to have been the case the past few years.

Nice surprise win for UConn last night. New coach and nothing to play for wasn't sure what team would show up.

Agreed. But UConn should have been ranked anyway. I don't think it's a huge upset or anything.

I was upset that the Ohio State - Marquette Carrier Classic was canceled. Though obviously it makes sense.

UConn wasn't ranked because of the way they collapsed last season.
