This week, we learned that...
2009 is finally here, and that means the rush and stress of the holidays are finally over.. which means there’s no better time to grab a comfortable chair and take in some hoops. The first weekend of the year offers some great match-ups, and it’s time to start separating the contenders from the pretenders as conference play is getting geared up. Here are some big games to keep an eye on:
Saturday, Jan. 3
Happy New Year! The first day of 2009 offers up some intriguing matchups on the gridiron, but given the recent phenomena of spreading out bowl games over an entire month New Year's Day can seem a bit barren to some. Bragging rights for conferences are on the line as well, most notably in a couple of matchups between the Big Ten and SEC along with a traditional showdown in Pasadena. The league/team with the most to lose: Virginia Tech, champions of the ACC.

As the college basketball season turns just a month old, it appears that one ACC team has already fallen out of contention for an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.
As Virginia Tech lost to a potential SEC cellar-dwelling opponent in Georgia on Tuesday night, the Hokies affirmed, yet again, that it just does not have the heart to compete for forty minutes this season. They are just nine points away from being undefeated but instead sport a 5-4 record.
