The holidays are rearing their ugly heads again. While everyone was brought up to believe that giving was better than receiving, we all know the deal. Give me stuff. Expensive stuff. All while I throw a gift card without an envelope at your face — that I may or may not have re-gifted. Ah, hell. Who am I kidding? It’s the same damn gift card you gave me a few months ago.

No matter what brand of holiday you celebrate, though, this is a pretty neat time of the year. Santa, your parents or some other form of a mystical beast, will be dropping off the coolest goodies in your house. Which, really, means a few different things. You are going to call off from school or work a lot over the next month to play some GTA. It also means you need a new security system. I mean, if a fat guy, wearing bright colors, can just sneak in your house without issue? Man, you need some new electronic security or something. Hey, maybe you should put that on your wish-list.

This time of the year also means college basketball is in full swing. Like, things are really moving along and whatnot. We are starting to get a grip for what teams are any good, which players are worth keeping both of your eyeballs on and which coach might be on the naughty list.

Considering I (meaning we, probably) are a bunch of selfish folk, I want to know what college basketball got me for the holidays. Is it a new Playstation? Could it be a stocking full of coal (I prefer oil, mind you)? Heck, maybe it is that Billy Buttons doll I have been clamoring for since I was five. Eh, I digress.

Oddly enough — but not oddly at all because the season has been going on — college basketball has already given us some great gifts. Come with me on a journey. A slideshow variety. Where we will see what 5 holiday gifts that college basketball has already given us.

Luckily, they aren’t a cheap inanimate object. So, we probably made out all kinds of swell.
