I promised the shortest intro ever. Open thread after the jump.

There's going to be tons of points scored, so even if you know nothing about the prospects or teams you should be entertained. And yes, Dabo and Dana are two of the most entertaining coaches as well.

So if you're going to watch tonight, drop some notes here. Does West Virginia junior wideout Tavon Austin (#1) look athletic enough to be the kind of playmaker Rams fans are clamoring for? How about speedy Clemson junior RB Andre Ellington (#23)?

Holler.
