The Annual Non-conference Preview, Short Form

Publication Date: November 25, 2003

It Froze the Other Night, Anyway

Usually I take this week off, but I doubled up on weeks off not long ago, so I figure you deserve something. I've also been trying to avoid the annual columns this year since I felt like I was getting in a rut, but this is one of my favorites, and I can do a short version, so here goes. As a compromise, I'm going to omit my usual utterly pointless commentary, since you know who these teams are as well as I do.
