    Anyone want to pick a Day 1 upset? All of them are pretty long odds. Picking any of the favorites in these games to go down is much more Bold than the "Bold Picks" thread....but there is always 1 or 2. I will go with Alabama going down. Bad for us, but it is early and Tech might do it.

    I'll bite 3x.

    Memphis favored by 28. I'll take Tennessee Tech.
    But we don't play nobody.

    First game of the day will be Wazzu vs some cupcake (noon local time tip from Pullman), and our guy Greg is calling it. I wonder if this is the first time he has done two games in one day?

    Tritons are good. Not SDSU good but better than the Jennys. Anytime Mark Fox loses, GU fans should rejoice.

    Ohio State in trouble.
    Akron hits a 3 with 6 seconds left to tie it up….and fouled. Hit the ft!

    Buckeyes ball, down 1. 3.2 seconds left……

    And they……win. Nice play by OSU.

    It must have been fleeting. Purdue rolled.

    Pittsburg, Houston and Creighton all underperforming.

    Nobody gonna mention Tommy Loyd's head coaching debut?

    I imagine some of you are torn. Been hating on Arizona for years, but now find yourselves compelled to kinda root for them?

    Virginia's style means they can lose to anybody.

    After tonight, Tommy L and Brian M will have identical W-L records as D-1 head coaches. . .

    Watching right now, had to wait for our (debacle) game to be over. I get all 7 P12N channels on Spectrum cable. Still waiting to see Oumar.

    I think the actual HC still gets the W or L in a situation like this rather than the acting HC. Unless you're Coach K and you want to stick it Pete Gaudet.

    Don't look now but Washington is trailing Northern Illinois by 9 at halftime. Hopkins isn't long for that job. I remember when he was vastly superior to Romar. That didn't last long. I think their football coach isn't going to last long either. UW athletic department is gonna be up against it, paying for buy outs and then bringing in new coaches.

    Texas up 40+ in their game

    13-23 from 3pt as a team.

    They have 6 guys who can stroke it.

    Their 6 new transfers averaged 90 ppg b/w them at the D1 lvl last season. That's an avg of 15 ppg amongst their proven transfers. They snagged Utah's leading scorer, Minnesota's leading scorer, UMass's leading scorer, Vanderbilt's leading scorer, & Creighton's 2nd leading scorer, & Bama's 3rd leading scorer.

    Nearly all of them were either the POY, or 1st or 2nd Team all conference in legit conferences.

    Texas also returned their top scoring guard, & shooting guard. Added a couple Top 40 guys too.

    Absolutely loaded.

    Then add in scrappy (dirty?) defense by Coach Beard. Scary team.

    Somewhat worried how Beard will play Holmgren, hope he at least plays fair/safe.
