2014-2015 College Basketball Preview

ncaaThe 2014-2015 college basketball season is already here.  As if things could not get better for guys (and some gals) in this wonderful country – with pro and college football going, as well as the NBA – we are in the state of sports euphoria.

Now there were some folks who were bitching over their conference not being previewed along with the “Power Five” leagues (ACC, B1G, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC).  To those folks I say the following: 1) “shaddup!”; and 2) “fine bitches, I’ll acquiesce.”  So now we have some of the other mid-major conferences to go along with the “Power Five” leagues.  However if you STILL cannot find your conference of choice below, then chances are that means your conference is not only inconsequential, it just might suck – really bad actually.
