    When you commit to something called "The Champions Classic", you're assuming the other three teams are other Champions (ie, no one on UNC's OOC schedule). When and where doesn't matter as long as you know each of the next three games, you are going to play one of the other champions at least once per season.

    So what you are saying is that Duke and Kentucky had no say in playing each other this year. If you believe that, i have some ocean front property in North Dakota for sale. Great view.

    To all of you who think you are fully aware of whats happening in the scheduling of college basketball games. All of the schedules are made in advance and most of the non-conference games are just this, tune up games for the regular conference. Carolina plays cup-cakes to award players so they can at least play one game close to home, others have coaches who have played or coach at the school and helps them with their programs. So please grow up and pay attention to your own school. It seems that you are more worried about what the others are doing than your own. And this is for every schools fans. UNC,State and duke

    And for those who are calling out UNC's schedule, particularly the ones thumping their chests about Duke playing Kentucky, UNC has played Kentucky for the last 12 SEASONS IN A ROW and multiple times in the post season.
    OOC regular season games in the Roy Williams era:
    03/04: Kentucky, Illinois, Uconn
    04/05: Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, Uconn
    05/06: Kentucky, Illinois, Arizona
