Believe it or not, and I’m not sure I am ready to believe it, the basketball season gets underway in less than two weeks with Tubby’s Tip-Off at Williams Arena on October 17 at 9:00 pm. A couple weeks later, the exhibition season starts, and before you know it, drunken students will hopefully be counting down the seconds in Minnesota’s first Big Ten win a few hours before counting down the end of the year.

It is an exciting time of the year, especially for those conditioned to have no faith in Minnesota football teams. To help get you ready for the season, we will be doing a more in-depth preview this year, something  self evident since this website started on whim after the season opening game.

The preview, if everything goes as planned, will cover the players and the Gophers opponents. I also hope to include some more general previews, but those might have to wait until at least early November, because with so many new faces, no one really knows what to expect.
