    Final Four is in Minneapolis this year. Has always been kind to the Devils. Back in Indy in 2021 as well, so could be a 2 out of 3 situation.

    Duke - Kentucky tonight! Damn, but I don't feel ready - it's like deciding to get back into running and doing an Iron Man on your first weekend.

    But for my dream 'quintfecta' of a Sox WS, Pats SB, Duke NCAA Championship, Bruins Stanley Cup and Celtic Championship to take place I gotta get up to speed quickly...

    All I know about these Wildcats is that they're big... (Richards, Washington, Travis and Montgomery anyways) and so could cause problems for Reddish, Williamson and Bolden. I would think that Bolden would be the 5th starter or quickly off the bench to give them some experience in the paint if O'Connell starts.

    Duke seems long on star-power but short on depth, esp. for guards. After Tre Jones, Barrett (who's more of a wing-forward) and O'Connell you have Joey Baker (also a wing-forward type) and Jordan Goldwire - some great potential for sure but it could take a while for consistency to emerge.

    That was the most impressive Duke team I’ve seen since 2001. I have no idea if it holds up all season, and they surely won’t shoot that well, but that was a ridiculous amount of firepower.

    I can't ever remember being as shocked at their talent level in a season opener. I guess I wasn't paying attention to their tour de Canada because, you know, it was against patsy teams. But this was insane. The look on Cal's face pretty much throughout the game was priceless.

    Wofford made Zion Williamson his first scholarship offer 4 years ago when he was still 6'3" and playing PG. If he'd accepted Chapel Hill would have lost their 2nd straight to the Terriers!

    At least when Carolina loses to a team from a mid major it's in a meaningless game in November and not the first game of the tournament like y'all.
