As always, unrealistic expectations from gtmo. I see 9-3 non-conference, losses at Northwestern and at Gonzaga, and final of HOF Classic; 11-7 in BE, 4th or 5th in conference; 2-1 in BE tourney; and 1-1 in NCAA tourney. We will be exciting to watch again, but front line is going to be too weak against teams with good big men. 23-12 is respectable year given what I see as a mild rebuilding/retooling year.

The B1G released their schedules today, which is interesting because we now know specifics about how FOX is going to cover Big Ten hoops (and what that might mean for Big East games):

CBS still will air games on Sunday afternoons, ESPN broadcasts games on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and BTN will stage its Wednesday doubleheader. FOX, FS1 and FS2 will broadcast games on Mondays and Fridays.

“Only the NFL has more media rights agreements than the Big Ten does,” Rudner said. “The good news is with FOX came a lot more exposure. We’ll be playing every day of the week: Monday through Friday, Saturday and Sunday. From Tuesday, January 2, through Sunday, February 25, those 55 days, we will have Big Ten basketball played on 51 of those days.

In other words, if the FS1 Big Ten/Big East doubleheader that so many of us speculated about is going to happen, it's going to either be on Monday or Friday night. The older members of the Big East would no doubt love a return of a "Big Monday" type deal, and this seems to indicate to me that it's happening. But what about Friday? Big East coaches successfully lobbied to not play league games on Friday nights after the first year of the Fox contract (because of the strange gaps or lack of prep days in between games that it created). Will they return at the behest of Fox execs this year?

... another preseason report that completely ignores KT. It's amazing to me how under the radar our best overall player continues to be.

Except that they didn't:
How much production will the Bluejays get from their new additions?

After Marcus Foster and rising junior Khyri Thomas, there’s a lot of question marks with Creighton, and a lot of new faces. Three freshmen come in.... Establishing a consistent, solid rotation around Foster and Thomas from among the Bluejays’ additions and returnees will be key.

Ah - my bad. I only read the Power Rankings, where the only mention was of Foster, and didn't keep on scrolling to the "Burning Questions."

I still think he's being overlooked in a lot of these preseason looks, but this was my mistake on this one.
