The college basketball season is steadily approaching, and excitement and anticipation by fans from schools across the country is beginning to increase.
Sure, the college football season is just starting to get interesting, with the release of the BCS Rankings last week, but what could be better than the start of the college basketball season?
From Tobacco Road to the Big East Conference, out west to the Pac-10 and so on, teams are preparing for a long, yet fulfilling, start to the season.
Although some teams may be feeling down and out with injuries and new coaches early on, everyone's primary goal from the start will be winning the national championship in March.
One team that knows a thing or two about winning national championships are the Duke Blue Devils, the defending NCAA Champions from last year and winners of four titles with coach Mike Krzyzewski at the helm.
While the defending champions over the course of the past few seasons have all had to rebuild after winning the previous year's title, the Blue Devils have done the opposite.
Sure, Jon Scheyer, Brian Zoubek, and Lance Thomas will be missed, but with the likes of Seth Curry and Kyrie Irving making their debuts, I'm sure the Cameron Crazies will have a lot to cheer about this year as well.
The list that follows are "way too early" game-by-game predictions for the winner of each game currently on Duke's schedule.
