The new season has ALREADY kicked off so you know we have to have a thread for all of us to rep out favorite teams and discuss (argue) about the 2006-07 season.

I'm repping the Michigan State Spartans till I die. This year is more of a rebuilding year for us, but we have some solid players and can make some noise if we are able to jell. Tonight on ESPN is the semifinals of the Coaches vs. Cancel Classic at Madison Square Garden. MICHIGAN ST. vs. Texas right now in the 2nd game and Maryland has already defeated St. John by a score of 92-60.

Rep for your fave team and speak (talk trash) about how they're going to do this year.

I am glad you started this thread but I am afraid there may not be too many responses :help:

anyway, my favorite team is Duke Blue Devils ... we may have lost Redick, Williams etc but the freshman class has looked awesome so far. We goin' to the final four !!!

I don't know what to think this year.
The major conferences have not learned a thing it seems.
There should be more games versus the mid-majors.

I give credit to Boston College.
Vermont has won a game in the Big Dance in the last couple of years and would be considered a tough early opponent.

They might have lost but it's time these big schools man up and really play a tough non-conference schedule.
At least BC now knows what it could be up against when it plays in March.
I'm sure some teams would prefer to have an upset now instead of in March, well they'll feel that way when it happens. :devil:

Ugh, Mich St. should be leading this game, if we could score ANYTHING inside the paint. We can't seem to make short jumpers, layups OR free throws. Unforced turnovers have got to come down too. This is a great opportunity for a top 20 scalp.

Credit to Michigan St. for at least playing a tough team in November.
They might lose but they always come back strong in Feburary and March.

They were a good team to look at last year.
Shannon Brown was some eyecandy to look at. :drool:

Early Entry for the NBA Draft but no NBA team drafted him it seems. :(

That's too bad. He was a decent player. Too bad he was in a mediocre program in college. Maybe his game would've developed a little more.

He's a dedicated player. I'm sure he'll find another way into the NBA.
If you're into NBA rookies with a "lower center of gravity" Kyle Lowry is in the NBA now.
I had to pause my DVR box a couple of times last night while watching him.
We went to the same high school.
Should I be weirded out for liking a NBA player who was a freshman in high school when I was a senior? :tape:

That is weird. I checked the NBA Draft site before I posted and it didn't have him there.
I looked by conference. I see what happened. They didn't update the site. I'm sorry for that mistake.

Shame he had to leave so soon.
'Nova was a good team last year but they got manhandled by Florida.
Florida got its revenge from the 2005 beating tha Villanova put on them.
I don't see anyone beating Florida except Florida this year.

I will be happy this year if a mid-major outside of Gonzaga got a high seed.

Also it would be nice if I didn't hear a commentator say the WAC or the MVC is a mid-major conference for the whole season.

It's too early in the season for me to be this nervous. I can't help it tho, I'm totally attached and invested.

Pittsburgh looks like it's going to lose today to Winconsin at Winconsin.
I would like to give them some props though.
This is the first time in this decade that Pittsburgh football or basketball team has gone out of it's way to play in a hostile arena.

Their away schedule has been pathetic and usually Pittsburgh only plays usually around a third of their games on the road.

They might not be number two next week but I feel they will deserve the ranking they have.
They're doing what they need to do to get where they want.

Go Terps! They have done very well so far. Not going to miss the tournament for a third year in a row from the looks of it. I can't wait for the home ACC games to start.
