The Eternal Season - Tuesday November 1st

Hello Again TES Friends,

And just like that, the month of November has arrived, which means the final month of regular season play for college football is here (well, for the Big Ten).  After the way October ended, hoping the Hawks can wake up this Saturday when Michigan comes to town.  More about that game in a few days, of course.

The changing of the month also means that basketball is almost here.  College, at least, which is what we here at TES care about.  10 days from tonight for the Hawkeye opener, picked 10th by the media, but I think we are going to catch a few people by surprise this season.  So many close losses last year, with a very thin bench - which is now full, with some great shooters and more size available for the rugged style of Big Ten play.  Overlook the Hawkeyes at your own risk!

November also brings us weather that makes it feel like it should be hockey season.  The Caps 7 game winning streak to start the season ended with two losses on the west coast, but they return home tonight to face the Ducks, a team who now has to deal with the time zone shock.  That game is on Versus at 7:30, so we'll be getting our hockey fix tonight.
