If you're like me, you can't remember the last time you stayed up all night watching college hoops. With the pandemic shrinking the non-conference season, we won't even have the opportunity usually provided by ESPN's hoops marathon.
But this is the most interesting and important Iowa basketball season in decades. Fran McCaffery's squad is a consensus top 10 pick, a legitimate Final Four contender, and the betting favorite for its first Big Ten title in 40 years. It's a great time to be a Hawkeye hoops fan.
These times call for extreme measures, and we're here to help: The Parquet Spread is back! Tomorrow, starting at midnight, Go Iowa Awesome will preview the 2020-21 Hawkeye hoops team with 24 posts in 24 hours. We've got player previews. We've got history. We've got gambling! By the time the day is over, you'll be fully prepared to watch Iowa's season opener Wednesday.
So stay up all night with us and get psyched for the Peacock, Weezy, JBo and the rest of them boys to return to the hardwood. There's no better way to start a legendary campaign.
