2013-2014 Men’s College Basketball Preview

ncaaCollege basketball is back!

WHOO-HOO!!!

This is a season of change.  The ACC welcomes Syracuse, Pittsburgh, and Notre Dame (join in football already!!!) to join its powerhouses Duke and UNC.  The “new” Big East broke away from what is now the American, and should be competitive thanks to the likes of Marquette, Georgetown, Creighton, Butler, and Xavier.

In short, I am excited as hell over this season.

This preview is centered around the major seven college basketball conferences and a few of the well-known mid majors.  If your conference is not included, chances are no one cares about it – and neither do I.
