list of all groups

** Blog About what You Love

- The key component to UGroups is that you can have your own forum to discuss the teams & leagues you love. Sure, other sites like BleacherReport allow fans to post their content.. but the reality is that your work will most likely never be read there.. unless its about the NBA or Fantasy Football. is all about our love for college basketball, and you can be sure like-minding die-hard fans will be listening to what you have to say.

- Besides the UGroup, your work will also be archived at the "track" page of your profile, so you have easy access to show off your work.


** Create content

- Stories/Blogs

- Pictures
