I believe there are only 2 more of these before the end of the year. I can't believe how fast time has flown. Here's the last pre-Big BBQ Aggregation.

Major Guest List News.
- SHOUT OUT TO THE HAVENOTS!! Stand up, Hobart, Hartford and Quinnipiac. All three reached the Big Board for the first time this year. I put all three of these WINNERS on my poll as I figured they deserved it and it was my problem figuring out how to place the other 17 teams. If you're looking for a few fun teams to latch onto during the tournament, you can't go wrong with any of our newbie Big Board standouts.
- #1 Maryland. Now as I always say, I don't like to brag .... I LOVE IT!! But it's off-putting, so I try to not do it often. BUT, we should all take a moment to note that I had the Terps at number 1 last week. That obviously doesn't add much to the conversation, but I felt it was important to share!
Anyway, polls are kind of misplaced right now. It's tournament time. Let's just get after it. Look for another banger by @HoyaSuxa tomorrow morning and of course our Game Day Links post will be up early as well. We also got a few great Chats lined up in the next few days, so be on the look out for them too. I'll see you out there!
