College Hoops 2012-2013 Thread
I'm starting a thread for college hoops. I'm a little surprised that a thread hasn't started about this yet. So far, I've only caught a few games. Mostly Notre Dame games, however, I did catch an Indiana game where they looked Impressive. I'm also probably going to catch a Utes game when I get into town in a few weeks. I cannot wait to get back to Utah. More importantly, I enjoy reading the board's input and perspective, no matter how off the wall or blind it can be at times.
PKM- You have full permission to take this thread over with your Kentucky-ness, just know that I am not crazy about the SEC. In fact, I loathe them. In almost every case, I cheer against them.

Also, has anyone seen a Utes game yet this year. I've read decent things about Loveridge, and I want to know if I should get excited for any reason.
I just realized I need to say something controversial to spark debate. So, Utes are better than BYU and stuff.

UGLI, I swear you would get rep'd by me every time I log on if the system would allow it. You crack me up.
I learned from OB that goodteamism cannot be an attribute of one good player. They can be goodplayerists but cannot be goodteamism so I wouldn't get too excited.

As to BYU, I saw a few games and they did not look good as a team against the decent competition teams they played and lost both games. Maybe it was because of the cross country trip to NY? Davies looks pretty decent, but Haws is legit.
I don't really trust the early polls because they are way fluid and highly favor teams that have historically done well with a few exceptions. Tune in to the rankings when conference play is in full swing.
Gobert has a serious defensive gravity.
Notre Dame is absolutely whooping Chicago St.
I must admit that this is the first time I have even heard of Chicago State. It's nice to see Notre Dame handling business when they are supposed to. I may check out the Jayhawks game tonight, see how they look this year.
I absolutely agree, however, good players help in building a good team. Apparently the Utes recruited a couple of decent in state kids for next year as well. I'm just hoping that the Utes don't finish in the basement of the Pac-12 this year. I would consider that a good year. Improvement as a team is a good thing.

I got to check out the Jayhawks last night. They look good as usual displaying wonderful ball movement and great transition passing. I only saw the first half, but they looked like they could do a better job at finishing around the rim. Also, their seven footer is a blocking machine (averaging 5 blocks a game). I doubt he can keep up those numbers throughout the year, but he'll give them great low block defense throughout the year regardless.
Tonight... #14 North Carolina is going into #1 Indiana. I'm stoked, and I think I'll be able to catch the whole game.
Why are you so sold on Gonzaga?
