Posted by rtmsf on November 9th, 2009


So we realize that not everyone has a mental illness like we do and thinks about college basketball year-round.  Some of you do — the ones who keep emailing us about  Jerome Dyson, for example — but not all of you.  Therefore, if you’re just today realizing that there are actual games that count beginning tonight in Chapel Hill, Columbus, Syracuse and Berkeley as part of the 2009 Coaches vs. Cancer Tournament, well, here’s your cheat sheet.

RTC Preseason Top 25 – will debut at 6:30 pm ET tonight.  If you like comparisons, here’s the Coaches and Media Top 25.  We also found time to give you our preseason bracketology.

RTC Top 65 Games & Tournaments – we picked them by month (Nov/Dec, January, Feb/March pt. 1, Feb/March pt.2) so you don’t have to.  If that’s too complicated, here’s the wrapup post listing them by both date and ranking.  Oh, and we also broke down each of the big holiday tournaments, from the CvC to the Preseason NIT and everything in between.  We even found time to give you a complete schedule of the ESPN Full Court package with some analysis thrown in.
