Generally, we are the "authors" of "content" around here - "here" being a blog and not a message board. Recognize, we do, that you've come here not to contribute, but to consume. Nevertheless, there is the sporadic occasion where, either for our benefit or for to exercise the thinkifiers of the masses, we ask you a question. Today's question is ....

We've given up in football just in time for pre-season basketball hype to start creeping in. So, what are your expectations for this basketball season?

It's tough to envision this team making it to the NCAA tournaments, having lost three of its (arguably) six best players and two of its top three. Still, I think there's slight reason for optimism on the year. We have a few promising newcomers, and you can never count Chris Warren out of a game. We've got a much more thorough season preview coming on Thursday, but I wanted to get your opinions before you've been affected (perhaps) by our preview. The basketball schedule is after the jump.
