ESPN's College Basketball Marathon schedule

Everyone knows that college basketball lacks punch when it comes to starting the season. Instead of a definitive night where all teams play and all fans tune in, we slowly get acquainted with teams and players.

But ESPN is doing their best to create that "Day One" of the season, with their third edition of a college basketball marathon.

Below is the schedule, beginning with Miami traveling to Memphis. We also get the first couple of "must see" games of the season, as Ohio State will be tipping off in Gainesville right as you arrive home from work, Butler returns to national TV against Louisville, and two of the top teams out West square off in Spokane.

We'll be sleeping for the first four games, but Eamonn Brennan has been assigned with the enviable (or unenviable, depending on how you look at it) task of live blogging for the entire 24-hour even. Good luck, brave man.
