    **Official NCAA Basketball Regular Season Thread**

    Today is the day everyone. College basketball is officially back in our lives as of today and we're all the better for it.

    Here's the preseason men's polls:

    http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/rankings

    Preseason women's polls:

    http://espn.go.com/womens-college-basketball/rankings

    My preseason prediction: Unfortunately this is Kentucky's world and we're just living in it. If they don't at least make the Final 4, Calipari must have screwed up somewhere. They're my pick to cut the final nets down.

    As for the women, I really like James Madison to cut down the nets. Ha ha, no I'm just kidding. UConn does it again because no one can guard Breanna Stewart.

    A few more men's previews/All-American lists/award picks:

    UK usually has the most talented team but only has the one title to show for it and that had more to do w/ Carolina's injuries.

    I can't wait, should be a great year and welcome to the ACC.

    That is true, but this case is different. I've never seen a college basketball team with as much talent on it as this UK team. There's little to no drop off from 1st to 2nd string, with the exception of PG. But the back up is a 5 star so it will likely be fine if the Harrison clone goes down for any extended period of time. The frontline is just too huge and talented.

    They are really talented no doubt but they were last year and barely made tourney before going on that great run and they were 2 years ago and didn't make the Tourney. They are the rightful #1 and the favorites but it's not a lock.

    UK is platooning the crap out of a good number 5 Kansas team right now. UK is going to be scary when they put it all together.

    What does Louisville look like this year? Are they strong as usual?

    #6 Gators go down



    ACC > SEC

    Adding Louisville and Syracuse to an already solid BB conference

    Yeah that happens when you're using 6 scholarship guys and a walk-on, starting C gets suspended for getting busted with pot, and a starting F can't play because he hurt his wrist and then that Puerto Rican kid catches fire.

    Fortunately, college basketball games in November mean very little. Donovan was right though, this isn't a top 10 team. Whatever, Kentucky is gonna go in dry the SEC anyway. This is a sorry-ass basketball conference.
    THIS IS WHAT A REAL HEAD COACH LOOKS LIKE!

Philbin has the temperament of a cantaloupe, and too often his team plays as such.
