Yellow fever should have the first of many bowl threads this holiday season up later this afternoon, but until then, let's check out some of the big time + Pac-10 hoops going on and do some preliminary scouting!
noon EST/9 AM PST: Michigan at Kansas, ESPN HD. Your last chance to sample a Jayhawk ass-whomping before Cal comes to town next Tuesday. Although you'll probably be sampling an ass-whomping then anyway.
2 PM EST/11 AM PST: UCLA at Notre Dame, CBS HD. Bruins, don't embarrass yourselves too much.
2 PM EST/11 AM PST: North Carolina vs Texas in Jerry Jones's fun house, ESPN HD: It's beyond me how this will actually work, but at least it serves as a nice tuneup for All-Star Weekend.
2 PM EST/11 AM PST: Furd at Northwestern, Big Ten Network: This looks like a loss...
4 PM EST/1 PM PST: Gonzaga vs Duke in New York City, CBS HD: Fucking Duke. Don't they have their own arena to play around in?
4:30 PM EST/1:30 PM PST: Tennessee at USC, FSN HD/CSN Bay Area: This looks like a loss (although the Trojans have a new point guard!)
Local coverage: San Diego St.-Arizona St at 6:30 PM PST/3:30 PM PST, Portland-UDub & Oakland-Oregon, 10 PM EST/7 PM PST. Just don't faceplant guys.
