Now that the college football regular season has ended and the Heisman Trophy has been handed out, this is supposed to be the time when college sports fans turn their focus to college hoops.
Except, that’s not happening this year.
No one is talking about the sport or its games right now, as the NFL and NBA are dominating all the headlines. Events like the ACC-Big Ten Challenge and SEC-Big East Challenge received little attention and the most nationally hyped showcase game, Indiana vs. North Carolina on Nov. 27, was a total dud.
Why is this happening? That’s easy: The games aren’t very exciting to watch.
