    Also think Mich St ML could be a great bet.They return most of their guys and are home while it will be Kentucky's 2nd game with a whole new starting 5

    As others have said the Tournament of Champions will be AMAZING.

    MSU vs Kentucky will be sick and so will Duke vs Kansas.

    I originally thought Kentucky and those 18 year old KIDS would get the better of my boy Izzo, but now I think if I do anything that game I will just take the underdog ATS (if it is not a pk).

    As for the Duke/Kansas game, I am absolutely taking Duke. It will be Kansas's one guy against the world and Self may have won a national title, but I don't consider him a real winner because of that easy ass conference he plays in.

    MSU always schedules difficult games early in the season so they can get battle hardened real quick.

    It looks like the UK/UNC game is actually at UNC.

    The MSU/KY and Duke/Kansas games are in Chi-Town.

    I think there are Aircraft Carrier games again this year, but I don't know who is playing.

    Kansas has a lot more than one guy. Their freshman center is projected top 10 pick. If anything, Duke is more one-manned than Kansas. Although, both have a ton of talent.

    Rodney Hood is not one of those.

    The aircraft game went Fubar after the MSU/UNC matchup. It's either done completely, or it's done being nationally relevant because SDSU has to be one of the teams, which nobody gives a fukk about.

    Besides the SDSU thing, the main issue is logistics. It's impossible (literally) to have the military guarantee you a carrier to play on a year in advance (which is basically the minimum you need for a marquee matchup to agree to play). As such, this game is most likely just a thing of the past, or will only take place in perfect scenario's.

    The whole ESPN marathon is great. Every year so far a bunch of us have taken off work to watch the whole thing. We pick each game straight up and against the spread and just try to rock out 29 hours or so of basketball.

    Wayne Selden is a pre season freshman of the year candidate as well, Perry Ellis kicked ass at the end of last year, and Embiid (seven foot freshman center) may end up coming of the bench behind Tarik Black ... The Jayhawks are loaded.

    Self has said that Wiggins may not lead the team in scoring, as Ellis and Selden have a chance.

    Black is very solid. I was hoping Arizona landed the kid, but it made sense for him to go to KU.

    Embid is a beast, but 7 footers struggle at times in college due to the fact they are matched up against smaller guys a lot.

    The duo is perfect.

    Selden is solid, and Perry Ellis could be very good, but he is very timid. If he ever gets a killer instinct he could be incredible for KU.
