The season starts today with a slate of four games.
Rhode Island at No. 5 Pittsburgh
UC Irvine at No. 13 Illinois
Navy at Texas
Seattle at Maryland
What I'm most looking forward to is the debut of Canadians Cory Joseph and Tristan Thompson at Texas. Thompson has always been rated higher than his summer teammate, but I've forever liked Joseph better. Either way, the reality is that UT needs both to be productive. If they are, the Longhorns could challenge for the Big 12 title despite the loss of Damian James and Avery Bradley.
