College Basketball Starts

Can I be honest with you? With the major colleges padding their skeds with patsies and mid-majors in both the beginning of football and basketball seasons, I pay only scattered attention to what is going on at that time, unless a special game brings with it a good match up. I'll check scores to just keep up and to get a feel for how a team is coming together. But generally, the football season isn't interesting until conference play and the basketball season isn't interesting 'til the holiday tournaments leading into January. So, unless the shit really hits the fan, you won't find much here on college basketball for a little while.

Oh, by the way, Kansas 101, Hofstra 65. Only interesting if you are a Hofstra alum. (It was pretty exciting when the University of Vermont played Kansas a number of years ago...We held our own, only losing by 6 points, keeping it interesting til the end.)
