College Hoops Random News Thread

I decided to start this because there have been quite a few crazy upsets already this season. The biggest happened last night. Wofford got their first win ever over a ranked opponent when they upset UNC!

https://www.cbssports.com/college-ba...etball-season/

Other major upsets this year:

Ball State over #9 NDSucks
Loyola Chicago over #5 Florida
Washington over #2 Kansas
BC over #1 Duke
Arizona and Purdue's collapse in the Battle for Atlantis

Unranked Arizona State is 10-0 and #3 in the country. No one saw that coming.

Fort Wayne Indiana crushed Iu at Indiana the other night . I know it's back to back years and two or out of three but they smoked them and that was the game after Indiana came from 13 down to beat Norte Dame.

I watched last 10 minutes of the Wofford game last night , and they deserved the win. They lead the whole time I watched it.

Also, Indiana basketball is an absolute joke. They are the equivalent of Nebraska football: a fan base that thinks they are some elite program that hasn’t done jack in 20+ years and will likely never return to their old glory. I think they’ve made 1 Final Four in the past 25 years (as a Cinderella 6 seed I believe under Mike Davis); how exactly is that considered even a conference power?

Fighting Camels and Ragin' Cajuns are up there. Mastodons actually need to move to three for me:

1. Wolverines
2. Gorillas (Pittsburg State)
3. Mastodons
4. Fighting Camels
5. Ragin' Cajuns

UCLA beat Kentucky by 8 tonight! RPI boost! We needed that since we scheduled Alabama A&Dumpster.
