Just to get us into the offseason, I thought I'd bring this up. There has been some discussion around the country about making college basketball a one-semester sport...like almost all other sports (don't argue that football is a two-semester sport, unless you can point to the bowl game the Gators played in in January). Hoops has been over 2 semesters longer than I've been watching, but the seasons were shorter back then too. I can see some logic to starting the season the first season of January, and maybe starting March Madness at the end of March, rather than the beginning. Currently you have a spate of games in late November and early December, and then not much happens for a couple of weeks as kids take finals (except at UNC and FSU) and they take some time for the holidays. Kind of a dead period there. The obvious down side to me is that I can't wait that long for hoops to start.
