    For opening weekend in Division I sports, you typically have muted expectations for how much you'll be entertained. If it's football, you know the Buckeyes are going to be pounding on some FCS teams for the first month. In basketball, there's typically a team or two I've never heard of (though I don't follow basketball at all).
