The first nationally televised college basketball game is exactly one week from today.  This week, most teams get on the court for exhibition play… a.k.a. beating up on some D-2 or D-3 school to knock the rust off your tires.  (Unless of course you are Syracuse last year.)  The fact that we are this close to the tip of the season makes me happier than Survivor cast members when they have won a food reward.
