    I think when it’s all said and done, Adam Dykman will be older than - and spent more time in college than - Grandpa Luke.
    I was hoping we could make it to at least November before someone weaponized this narrative against us.

      Is it possibly a bit of rebuilding year for both Augie and NSU?
      Everyone knows what the entire starting lineup can do; win 60ish % of their games, have an offense that stalls out for stretches because they don't have anyone who can beat their man off the dribble, and lose in absolutely maddening fashion in the conference tourney. If either of the Brits or Bennett Otto can help breathe some life into the offense without being total catastrophes on defense this extremely old team could be a threat to the Moorhead team they swept last year.

        Will 7:30 starts be too late?? What about back to back games? Will Adam Dykman sign a NIL deal with Super Polygrip? Sounds like a new thread...

        So happy it’s back (not to normal yet) with fans. :)

          I’m fine if Augustana sweeps Moorhead again this season as long as Moorhead back in ncaa tourney in the end.

          Augustana depth will likely be the question. The starting 5 will be good. Can Augie find a few players off bench to come in and really contribute? At least we won’t have to watch Schaefer flop every other time down the floor. We will, however, still get to watch such flopping antics with a bunch of UMD players.

            Perhaps this is the right time to point out that in NSIC double headers at the Pentagon the Augie men will play first and the women second. Sources have yet to confirm if Adam requested this change.

              That is certainly going to be an interesting experiment.

                I can’t recall if it was the whole conference or just MSU that flip-flopped the games a number of years ago, but it lasted that one year only (and maybe not even the whole season, memory is a bit fuzzy).

                it’s weird and can’t be a good experience. Please don’t cancel me...

                  I remember an experiment from many years ago when the UND men played first at Otto Arena. Huge crowd. Then it emptied out for the women's game. I talked to the UND about it. They hated it. If they had a close game the crowd would keep growing when they played first. When they played second it was depressing to see most people leave.

                    It made a little bit of sense when UND was a nationally relevant women's program in D2 and the men were middling.

                      Yes- back when they were playing ping- pong with NDSU to see who the national champs would be in D2 women's basketball- and they still hated it!

                        Lo Biondo left to play overseas somewhere (at least that's what I remember reading a few months back). The WSU team will have some talent but they are going to play small ball all year or they are going to play some young guys up front. There is only one upperclassman who is above 6'4 on the whole roster. Barring a late transfer, that's a small, young team up front.

                          Hankering for the Regional tourney experience. Host team plays the everybody leaves.

                            Maybe Alou Dillon will stay healthy and amount to something. Have no idea what to expect from but for some reason see him as a banger. Some taller freshmen will have to play. Don’t think this will be the year we find our way back to glory.

                              Not sure if everyone is a transfer at some point but it will be the exception to the rule of a team doesn't have a transfer moving forward. Wonder how that will impact Mankato in short term since they've relied heavily on the transfer market. Now everyone is competing in there.
                              When Augie won the NC in 2016 they had zero transfers on the roster. I would be really surprised to see that happen again in the future.

                                Not much has been said on here about it, most of the talk was about the men playing the early game and the women the late for the first part of the year, but how about the Thursday night games experiment. First week of the season is Thursday/Saturday, and then the last week once again is Thursday/Saturday. Interested to see how that works out.
