Tomorrow night should be fun.

3 Kansas
4 Duke
7 PM

1 Michigan St.
2 Kentucky
9:30 PM

 

Terps are playing Holy Cross.  Another great non-conference matchup, so don't forget that.  Turgeon isn't afraid of big games.

Lol. Nevertheless, that's what I'll be watching. But being around multiple TV's will be a must tomorrow night.

Looking forward to both games tomorrow night. 

 

Also, the ACC decided with the network debuting this season that conference games kick off the season, with doubleheaders tomorrow and Wednesday night. Heels host Notre Dame on Wednesday. 

 

Let's get it on!!

Wouldn’t be surprised to see Kansas win by double digits tomorrow.

Me either, Duke will get better as the year goes on. But to pull a Rob, I'm going to hedge and also say I wouldn't remotely be surprised to see Duke take this one either. Hope it's a good, entertaining game.

Meanwhile, while these teams are playing against the games best, I just scooped up tix to the big Rhode Island game in College Park Saturday. ;)

Of course they can win but I would say they shouldn’t win this game.

They struggled vs a D2 school in the preseason.

I don't like big games early to start. Dunno why, but it just doesn't feel right. No big games until Thanksgiving dammit!

Still a tad unsure why the "Champions Classic" doesn't include the teams with the first and third most actual championships, but I digress.

I hear you, but I love it personally. What else would I do tonight? Random Tuesday in November. No football, early season NBA is kinda meh, Caps aren't playing tonight... I'm excited to see the top 4 teams in action tonight.

Why the hell not? They have one less title than Michigan State & 2 less than Kansas.

Just not sure what the rationale was to have a night called the "Champions Classic" include Kansas & Michigan State every year. With all due respect to their programs, of course.

Is there a contract? Aren’t these games decided years ahead of time?

It's just these 4 teams, it's been going on for about 10 years now.

I know, I just wonder if there was a contract between the schools and whoever puts this on. You know, how teams schedule non-conference home and home sometimes. I wonder if there was a contract these four schools entered into.

In the details they play this for eternity.

I looked it up, started in 2011, runs through 2022.
