As fun as Friday night was, the season basically starts tonight. A challenging opponent, on national television, capping off 24 consecutive hours of college basketball. A rematch of one of the best games of the decade, albeit with two entirely different squads facing each other.
Here is your Open Game Thread for the "Real Season Opener". It should be a dandy, and considering the game's in Saint Louis, should draw plenty of comments and stuff. Hopefully.
Even I'll be here, at least by tipoff, once Xavier is done depositing Bowling Green and I'm back home after yelling my lungs out in the student section. So you should be here too, and we can all yell our lungs out through keyboards and computer screens and the English language. It'll be a grand ol' time. I promise.
But seriously. This is going to be exciting as hell. I can't wait to see all of the new players. I can't wait to see the Morris twins, who will probably get too good by January to still be my favorite players (yeah, I'm kind of sad like that...Thomas Robinson?). I'm giddy with excitement at finally being able to watch the Kansas Jayhawks play some basketball. Even though they've already played 3 games, I haven't watched them. So this is basically like Christmas morning for me.
