Similar to the 2015-2016 NBA season, the college basketball season is upon us – as in right now. Another season has snuck up on me. I guess that’s what happens when you are a consultant and have a five-year-old son.
You get kinda side-tracked.
At any rate, since the season officially kicked off a few hours ago, I’m going to do an ultra-condensed, high-level preview where I will list my regular season champions from all of the major basketball conferences. And I’ll top it off with my Final Four picks.
Ain’t I a nice brother? So without further ado, let’s go…
Atlantic Coast Conference: UNC (I threw up in my mouth. Twice…)
Big 12: Kansas (can’t count out the Jayhawks in ANY year under Bill Self)
Big Ten: Maryland (I feel sick over picking this ACC turncoat)
Big East: Villanova (memo to Jay Wright: time to get it done in the NCAA tournament, bro…)
Pac-12: Arizona (keep an eye on Utah tho…)
SEC: Kentucky (Ben Simmons and LSU will be fun to watch)
Mountain West Conference: San Diego State
Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, aka the “MEAC”: N.C. Central (Moten is going to leave for a big-time gig sooner rather than later)
Atlantic 10: Dayton
American Athletic Conference: UConn (Cincinnati is lurking)
West Coast Conference: BYU
Final Four picks: UNC, Kentucky, Michigan State, Duke
2015-2016 NCAA Champion: Duke (there is something about Coach K…)
* Note: to those fans of the MAAC, MAC, WAC, America East, SWAC, and the like, no one cares much about what goes on in your conferences, and neither do I. I only say that with love though…
