Football is by far my favorite sport to watch! But when it's gone, I usually end up paying more attention to basketball. And with college hoops right in the middle of conference play, I find this the best time to really start getting in the swing of things.

Besides, doesn't sitting on the couch in front of a big HD tv sound like a great time on a cold winter night? It’s a Big Monday on ESPN tonight and I love the W. Virginia Mountaineers at home tonight. They haven’t had a big win in a while and could use one tonight after taking a beating from Villanova on Saturday. Considering this is their second game with top scorer Casey Mitchell back, and that Pittsburgh’s Ashton Gibbs will be out, this looks like the perfect time to get a signature win under the lights of national television. The game is at a pick ‘em, so all they have to do is win. I expect it to be a battle and to get my moneys worth, but it the end I see the Mountaineers prevailing over the #4 Panthers. As I say on the radio when I think I’m giving out a winner… “Send it in!”
