Memphis will survive

You can’t ask for a bigger college basketball game—number two at an undefeated number one, and the teams are in-state rivals. So big a college game that even I–notoriously anti-NCAA–watched it.

Not only was the match-up unbelievable, the game couldn’t have been closer. Both teams had chances to win in the last minute of the game.

All that being said, I was still pretty bored. I’ve said it ten thousand times, but I’d almost always rather be watching the NBA. The talent level is so much better. Aside from Rose (who didn’t have the ball when some guy for Memphis was chucking up a terrible shot that cost them the game), how many guys on either team could play in the league?

The passion at that level is great, though it led to a ton of sloppy play. The college atmosphere at a game of that size is very cool. But, if I had League Pass, I would have been watching Jazz-Hawks and Spurs-Hornets. But that’s just me.

(Also, Simmons’ thoughts on the Kidd trade make sense to me. Though Pat thinks Kidd is still a good defender.)
