Lighten up, Francis.

Seriously, it's just a map showing the closest unbeaten teams by county. The map was a lot more fragmented before when there were several more unbeaten teams.

But since there are no other unbeaten teams in the West, SDSU gets those counties on the map due to proximity. It's just meant for fun, nothing serious.

And SDSU has a really good team this year, so it IS fun!

Wow, Texas Tech taking it to Louisville. Didn't want to give those guys too much confidence before Conference play. And didn't want that deadly #1 ranking on Kansas either.

Was very surprised at the beatdown of L'ville.

No surprise at all re: Maryland. They were underdogs. So predictable given that it was it their first road game and how they keep crapping the bed out of the gate. Hard to win when you're down 10 on the road at half and then can't hit a shot in the last 5-6 minutes. And they always seem to have trouble there.

at the "overrated" chant near the end (which alone is stupid) but then the idiot students storm the court. Idiotic football fan-base. Add basketball to that too.

The "Overrated " chant (that Kansas hears all the time ) is beyond stupid. It's basically saying 'If we can beat you you're not that good'. So dumb. But it is four syllables long which makes it easy to chant.

Ironically, they are likely correct in that Maryland is overrated. 8 of their 10 wins are against Q3/Q4. Illinois is their best win and they were behind the whole game in that one.

Speaking of ironic, it just occurred to me that Chris Beard is the second-best coach in the history of UNLV Basketball, and he never coached a game there.

Congratulations to the Ohio State Buckeyes on their recent acquisition of a massive amount of land in the Midwest.

Nice win for the Shockers over OU. Props to OU for playing the roadie.

Why KU and Wichita never play, I have no idea. Oh, I know because Bill Self is a lame ass..

Self has said there is no upside to playing Wichita State. I kind of believe him There's no recruiting advantage (everyone in Wichita knows all about KU) and there's no advantage gained by beating them (but tons of downside with a potential loss). That is Self's position anyway.
Honestly, I am MUCH happier about renewing the rivalry with Mizzou, a school I LOATHE and would love to see them destroy. RD, I get that you're a big proponent of the mid-Majors but I tend to agree with Self here. It's not like Kansas is ducking anyone -- they opened against Duke at a neutral site, played in the Maui Invitational (should have matched up with Michigan State in the Final had they not lost early, their next game is at Nova, and then they will play at Stanford the next game. They also host Tennessee a little later this year.

He has no interest in giving Wichita State that sort of credibility while they both compete for the same kids. I get that, and don't really mind it.

I watched the OT of Ore-Mich. Wolverines certainly had their chances.

Props to Roy for playing in the Kennel (as part of a home and home). You won't see the other Blue Blood coaches do that.

Though, looks like a pounding coming tonight. Bet up from 10.5 to 14. Have to imagine that UNC hasn't been this big of a dog since the Doherty years.

Wow, four game losing streak for UNC. That has to be rough for them, worse with Anthony out for a while

James Wiseman has gotten fed up with the NCAA bullshit and is leaving Memphis in order to get ready for the Draft. That is college basketball's loss and I see very little positive gained from their strict enforcement policy.

Yet again, even worse,. So sick of this shit. Turgeon is a terrible game-prep coach and not much better in-game. All he can do is recruit. Seton Hall down their 2 best players and are totally outplaying the Terps.

James Wiseman leaves Memphis, to enter NBA draft.

The kid was caught between a rock and a hard place. I can't say I blame him for leaving Memphis.

South Carolina upsets #9 Virginia 70-59 yesterday afternoon. Very surprising to say the least.
