  2. ACC/Big Ten: Leftover first night thoughts

    Eamonn Brennan

    In lieu of four or five small blog posts -- and before we move on to Night 2 of the marathon -- here are a few random thoughts left over from my delirious viewing of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, Night 1: I still think NC State is overrated, but at ...

  4. SEC/Big East slate whets the appetite

    Eamonn Brennan

    The SEC/Big East Challenge may not quite have the longstanding cachet of its ACC/Big Ten brethren, nor should it. The ACC/Big Ten Challenge is 13 going on 14, and as the years piled up and the Atlantic Coasters just kept winning -- the ACC won the fi...

  6. Latest Big Ten/ACC Challenge takes shape

    Eamonn Brennan

    That's right, folks: The matchups have arrived for the 2011-12 Big Ten/ACC Challenge (not to be confused with the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, last year's always-alternating title). And they are every bit as appetizing as you'd expect. First things firs...

  7. Wake Forest still looking historically bad

    Eamonn Brennan

    Back in November, during the halcyon days of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge, I described Wake Forest's 76-73 win over Iowa in the terms I thought it deserved. Those terms -- "bad shots," "ugly," "bad shots," etc. -- were not warmly received by the Demon D...

  8. Week in Review: The Big Ten prevails

    Eamonn Brennan

    As we get set for a hoops-filled weekend, here's a linky look back on the week that was at the College Basketball Nation blog: The ACC/Big Ten Challenge played out as most predicted -- a 6-5 win for the Big Ten -- but there were plenty of surpris...

  9. ACC/Big Ten Challenge: Wednesday's recap

    Eamonn Brennan

  10. ACC/Big Ten Challenge: Tuesday recap

    Eamonn Brennan

    Virginia's upset of No. 13 Minnesota on Monday night altered the entire projection for the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. After all, that game was supposed to be a given, the best example of a good Big Ten team taking on a clearly inferior ACC squad at home....

  11. Breaking down the ACC/Big Ten Challenge

    Eamonn Brennan

    It's no secret the ACC has owned the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. (Or the Big Ten/ACC Challenge, depending on the year. This year, ACC comes first.) For the first 10 years of the competition, the ACC made a case for permanent masthead ownership: The confer...

  12. Illinois taking UNC game 'personal'

    Eamonn Brennan

    Who knew college basketball players were so good at holding a grudge? Illinois fans have one big reason for hating North Carolina, and it goes beyond the school's hiring of Roy Williams from Kansas, which in turn caused Kansas to nip rising star B...

  13. Mizzou's first test comes Tuesday night

    Eamonn Brennan

    With all the attention foisted upon the ACC-Big Ten Challenge -- for good reason, too, because it's as compelling an early-season competition as we have in college hoops -- you could be forgiven for missing a rather big game on Tuesday night's schedu...

  14. Big Ten should win Challenge again

    Eamonn Brennan

    The Big Ten/ACC Challenge -- or the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, depending on the tournament's rotating name and/or your own conference allegiances -- used to be pretty easy to forecast. After all, the ACC dominated the contest for a decade, winning the fi...

  15. Hawkeyes, Gophers Big Ten's lone bulwarks

    Eamonn Brennan

    The Big Ten should thank Iowa. Minnesota, too. And home court advantage. Actually, play it safe, Big Ten: Point your gratitude at all of the above. On the first night of the Big Ten-ACC Challenge -- the 15th meeting between these two conferences, a...

    Eamonn Brennan

    These days, college basketball has a flurry of early season events; it's not just Maui anymore. There are aircraft carriers and U.S. Army bases and the Champions Classic and the ESPN Tip-Off Marathon and the Battle 4 Atlantis and whatever else Michig...
