Bill Tierney just can't win. (Neither can I apparently. Let them horses run, baby!)

We're kind of splitting hairs between Colgate-Massachusetts, Princeton-Virginia, and Denver-North Carolina as the weekend's most exciting offensive showcases and in the end it doesn't really matter which you notarize with your Internet fist as the most exciting. All I know is that the Pioneers and Tar Heels are brutally equipped to make Steven Rastivo and Ryan LaPlante wish they hadn't chosen the stick with the big ol' bag on the end as their favorite one of the bunch.

All I have to say is this: PEW! PEW! LACROSSE GUNS! ESPNU and ESPN3 have the broadcast.

Here's how the game shakes out on the Fun Factor scale:

DENVER AT NORTH CAROLINA
AWAY HOME TIME FUN FACTOR RANK
Denver North Carolina 7:30 4.5336 4

This is your open thread for the game. Make me proud out there, kiddo.
