Is it permissible to root for a giant sinkhole to swallow these four teams in Madison Square Garden tonight?

Can I leave first?

You’ll fall into the subway, and your username will be apropos

Yes. But first enjoy one of those Prime Rib sandwiches they have in MSG.

Wut?  Where?

At the many concession stands they have (used to have) a wicked good Prime Rib sandwich. They actually slice(d) the meat and serve it to you au jus with excellent half sour pickles. There were a few years at the Big East Tournament I only ate pizza from my favorite pizzeria, NYC pickles and Prime Rib sandwiches in MSG.

They may not have it anymore. But here is a link to MSG concessions, with locations in the arena.

I love MSG!

Place went from a FF atmosphere to a 11am first round tip-off in Boise, Id.  Both teams clunk it up isn’t helping.

What a shitty kickoff to the season. Hats off to the winners but damn that was pretty anticlimactic all around. Really ugly basketball. Duke can’t shoot and Ku makes a ton of dumb mistakes. MSU should be the favorite just based on having a good PG that is a senior but then they drop to a fresh Kentucky team that has no business hanging with them. 

I thought this would be a really good year of high quality ball across college hoops but it seems to me that even the “top” teams have a long way to go before it is even close to refined.

That’s not what I said at all. In the champs classic usually 1 team plays moderately bad. I’d say 3 if not 4 played very poorly. It was an anticlimactic beginning to the season given what it was billed to be. I also think that the college football playoff announcement  took away from the games.

I enjoyed a great night of games and didn't even get to see my own play.  I thought there was some fantastic basketball last night.  Don't be so myopic.

Basketball also seems to build up a little more as the season progresses..  The aforementioned roster turnover impacts basketball more than the other sports.  These teams are still being coached/ molded/ and formed into who they are going to be.  I enjoy the work that goes into this part of the year and what teams look like come Conference play and March. See also: early season injuries/ eligibility questions also changing teams.

Pitt opens up ACC play tonight with FSU coming to campus. It should be interesting. Capel has done a nice job righting the ship after the Kevin Stallings disaster. Hopefully this year we  take another couple steps in the right direction.

Nice win over FSU tonight for the Panthers. We are still going to struggle getting points inside but we rebounded well and played some nice defense. 
 

1-0 in ACC play!

Well according to the KU NOA boosters aren’t allowed to recruit and once you’re a booster you are always a booster. Soooo.... how is penny supposed to recruit?

Memphis, Tenn. thinks it's a basketball haven. As long as they can cheat. The story is that Hardaway was a booster, not the Memphis coach. True, because at the time he was the coach at Memphis East HS, where Wiseman used Hardaway's $ to land with his move to Memphis. It's just so unsavory and blaming the NCAA is wrong in this scenario.

Yep. There is no justification for a coach to flat out hand a family money. That’s even worse than KU’s situation. Everyone knew penny was going to be the coach at Memphis during this time as well. I don’t think they even interviewed him or anyone else before they hired him.

Hey I enjoy posts from @Jhawk 

But maybe stay away from comments like "That’s even worse than KU’s situation".

If I don't say it you know you will be the first to jump in with "OH YEAH LIKE A KU FAN CAN TALK".  You're just mad I stole your thunder.
