College basketball will start even earlier next season

GREAT news: college basketball will start even earlier next season.

Today, the NCAA Division I Council approved legislation to move the starting date of the 2018-19 season to the Tuesday before the second Friday of November, meaning Kentucky’s season will start on Tuesday, November 6 instead of Friday, November 9. In turn, teams may begin practicing the Tuesday before the second Saturday of October, so, October 9.

With most of Kentucky’s roster expected back, an exciting new freshman class coming in, and a foreign trip to get a head start on it all, next season is shaping up to be another perfect storm. Bring it on.

    Great, this just means they will space out the games a little more, it’s already slow.

    College basketball should start in January. Then it wouldn’t have to compete with NFL for 70% of the season. May Madness instead of March Madness

    Hey Tyler or KSR Admin… I stumbled across a word that your profanity filter will not allow to be typed.

    It’s absurd and your IT guy needs to remove it from the black list.

    The word is: u n r e a l i s t i c

    See for yourself. What a pain in the ass to try to figure out why it kept returning as “your comment is awaiting moderation.”
