Talk about Purdue's 2013-14 Men's Basketball opener here.

Jamie Sabau

Tonight is the night! Purdue basketball returns to give us something to feel good about after what has been an absolutely dismal football season. I should be able to be in most Open Threads this year, as I won't get to too many basketball games because of my son. Logistically it is far easier to take him to football games, but I am still hoping to make it to West Lafayette a few times with a media pass.

Also, Zach (PUBoilingPoints) and Steve (Slandrey) will likely be doing a lot more basketball coverage. If you have some ideas for them feel free to leave them in tonight's thread. I'll mine them out and let them know so we can improve on the basketball writing here. It gets the biggest audience most of the time, and if I can turn them lose on some projects it will make things even better in the long run.
