It's almost basketball season! (Never mind the fact that Northwestern has already played Texas-Pan American. I mean, you probably already weren't minding it, but whatever.) Sippin' on Purple attempts to figure out what will happen in a series of posts about NU's upcoming season.
Northwestern is a pretty decently good basketball team. Unfortunately, we play in a pretty decently good basketball conference: Ohio State is super-good. Some other teams are less good but still good.
Where does Northwestern slot in with all the goodness? We have our opinions after the jump, but tell us what y'all feel.
Where will NU finish in the Big Ten?
I'm getting more out of my depth here. Let's say 8-10; in line with the last few seasons, NU is at the bottom of the middle of the pack. Shurna is a fine player, but new point guards are a scary thing.
