Tonight's Duke v. Kansas, Michigan State v. Kentucky.

Gonna take a shot every time an announcer starts talking about the possible KU violations and die.

Congratulations! Your bonsai is dead!

As an NC State fan I am prepared for another season of vanity and striving after the wind.

As a Virginia alum I am prepared for a season of complete coasting because honestly who could sweat anything after last years run?

As a Maryland employee I am in no way prepared for anything relating to baseball and I will pretend Ive never heard of the sport and avoid any interaction with it whatsoever.

Not a hugely impressive start considering how much more experienced Kansas is over Duke.

Is there a reason the ACC is doing this? Do they just have so many teams they can't fit all their conference games in January and February?

I was looking that up, apparently it is because we switched to a 20 game conference schedule this year.

Really not great tonight. Duke had our number defensively, and I'm not sure how great the two post lineup worked for Self. I don't know why we went back to that, we've done a lot better the past few years with more dedication to wing players, and now we've gone back to a style of play that works less in modern basketball than ever. I dunno about that one.

Other striking thing was lack of playmaking by anyone who wasn't Agbaji or very occasionally Dotson. Azubuike looks like his game hasn't really gotten better in his year out and Garrett is still such a role player being asked more than in his actual skillset.

good first game. i like the offense. the defense will be the weak point of the team. Not stumbling out the gate is good and may bode well for otzelberger.

Tyrese Maxey is good, y'all. Kentucky looked better than I thought they would for the first game.

I'm probably getting him mixed up with someone else because apparently Purdue always has a very very tall white guy these days.

It's even funnier if you use the actual full name of the school because they become the California State University Long Beach Beach.

Though I will say my wife (who went there) did once randomly get a "go Beach!" shouted at her while walking around Des Moines in her LBS sweatshirt, which honestly felt even weirder and more random than the time I got "Go Hawks" in Rome.
