Well Duke absolutely embarrassed Seton Hall today, 93-40. They were up by 30 at the half. WIth about 6 minutes left in the half Seton Hall had ONE FG. I mean it was just embarrassing. UNC's in a major rebuiliding year so I just plan on watching some quality games this year while rooting for them to simply be repsectable. But 'tis the season for college b-ball so all is good with the world :D .

Yess.... Lol!!! I love duke!! GO duke, well Seton Hall ain't really an all good team, if they played a team like Wake Forest or something it would be much closer but I can imagine Duke going all the way this year!!!

Man did anyone see that Gonzaga-Mich. St. in the Maui Invitational semifinal game last night? That was the best college b-ball game I've ever seen live. Both teams played at an incredibly high level going shot for shot back and forth. I mean they just couldn't miss in the clutch. Triple OT and it could've gone even more if Suton hit that lay-in. Incredible game. Glad I got to see it. :woot:

O and right now Drexel is giving Duke a hell of a hard time in the preseason NIT semifinal (or tip-off or whatever the heck they call it now). Gotta love anyone who gives Duke a hard time :yes:

Duke Duke Duke Duke Duke Duke Duke Duke Duke Duke :p

There have been some good games so far. That MSU vs. Zaga game was messed up, i wanted another overtime. Also the Uconn-artists lucked up, but I guess my crew did too against Drexel. Opening season jitters I guess.

That should be a good game, I didn't even know they were gonna play. Hopefully Duke won't struggle before then. They have Memphis tonite and then Indiana in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

when's the acc/big ten challenge start?  this monday?  this is the big 10's year baby.

586852893[/snapback]

Yeah, the Illinois vs. UNC game will be a classic, even if it is not a close game. National Championship rematch, bragging rights on the line... it ought to be fantastic.

Who does Michigan get?

we get miami on tuesday. i think we can pull it off. we don't have the best players, but we have a solid group of returning seniors (who are basically all 4 year starters after the trouble we had gone through).

7:30 p.m. ESPN2 Purdue at Florida State

8:00 p.m. ESPNU Clemson at Penn State

9:00 p.m. ESPN Illinois at North Carolina

Come on, seriously... Illinois, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota are all going to win. Iowa, Indiana, Purdue and Wisconsin all have a decent (not Indiana) shot. I don't think it's going to be a domination, no matter which conference wins.

have you ever actually watched one? c'mon man, you're just making stuff up now.

year 1: 5-4

year 2: 5-4

year 3: 5-3 (1 game cancelled)

year 4: 5-4

year 5: 7-2

year 6: 7-2

thats not exactly what i would call "rolling"....

and last years 7-2 score included an absolute whooping of the so-called #1 team wake forest by illiniois. and 6 of the 7 losses were 10pts or less.

A blowout is not a classic. Sure it will be a good game for any fans but a good game to someone just looking for excitement does not involve blowouts lol. And bragging rights? Well considering this one won't be for the championship and when both teams had their best rosters UNC pulled it out, I think not :p

mmm... I love the sweet smell of victory.

Minor-bragging aside, UNC looked very decent considering you lost 4-5 of your top scorers. By the end of the year, they're going to be scary. The real rematch would be to see you once again in the Big Dance.

ahem Top 7 scorers, but anyway I was very suprised by how well we (UNC) played. I was afraid it was going to be ugly but my tarheels really gave the Illini a run of their money. I am excited for the future of my team.

they said there were only 7 TOTAL players from both teams that played in the final last year. pretty crazy.

either way, another close challenge. looks like we need iowa and IU to pull off the wins.

this duke/iu game is just incredible. if you aren't watching, put it on.

Yeah, I just turned it on... although there is a min left and IU is down by 5... I would trade anything for an IU win.

Sheldon Williams just fouled out... I think...

Doh, I guess not... this is nuts

WEll, it's over now, Duke won.

aahhhhhh how does duke sneak by everytime with a win, it drives a carolina fan absolutely nuts. :angry:

Even the big ten fans over here wanna see Duke eat dirt. Quasi-hatred aside, I do have a lot of respect for Mike Krzyzewski.
