So it’s that magical time of year again. College basketball is right around the corner. The NBA season has started and that means that college basketball is next. Naturally, that means that it is time for the Top 25 rankings to be released, with the accompanying debates and speculation. That is good and all, but I want to say up front that I hate having a Top 25 poll before (at least) the two-week point in the season. For the most part, you are basing your rankings off of what freshmen were ranked in high school. Media outlets that have never coached the game, or more specifically these players, have no idea how the players are going to mesh with the established team already.
Therefore, I do not plan to announce my own or bash anyone’s top 25 poll that is out there. I’ll be using the AP Top 25 throughout the season in my references to teams. I trust it the most, and it is the most widely accepted. So my ranks will match up with the majority of other sites.
That being said, I am willing to discuss teams that I think are going to have a big year. Personally I am going to be following about 20-30 teams this year to keep up with how they are doing. But for now, here are some details on the local teams and how they are going to stack up. Read more
Dear all Wise Guise Readers (and those of you who have no clue how you got to this page),
My name is Garrett Hall, and I have been invited by Clayton and the rest of the Guise (is that how the name works? I’ve never understood that…) to attempt to write a weekly post about College Basketball for the 2012-2013 season. Read more

He’s going to start us off with the Eastern Conference and then later cover the Western Conference. Below are his predictions and rankings. Let us know if you agree, but as a Magic fan who ranked his team 14/15, we know these aren’t homer predictions. Read more
This is the e-mail I wrote my wife in regards to the upcoming professional and college basketball seasons. I am a die-hard fan of both of Memphis’ teams and last winter, our first as a married couple, basketball become the source of much mutual frustration. This year, I decided to be up-front about my plans for the season. I will keep you updated as the results unfold themselves.
I’ve established myself pretty well as a movie nerd. I don’t hide it or deny it. So when I stumbled upon a little ditty a couple months ago called Thunderstruck, I was ecstatic. I planned to do a blog post immediately but decided it needed to be as thorough as possible. I mean, when this thing hits theaters today, it has the potential to be the second greatest movie starring an athlete! (Editor’s note: Number one is obviously Kazaam.) Read more
