Minnesota’s Richard Pitino and Northwestern’s Chris Collins are the new kids on the Big Ten block. And, each has a big hill to climb to keep pace with the likes of Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State and Wisconsin, among other programs. The Golden Gophers are coming off a 21-win season that included a win in the NCAA tourney under Tubby Smith. The 30-year-old Pitino—son of Rick—has one season of experience, guiding Florida International to an 18-14 mark last season. Is he ready for this colossal step? Hard to say. But Pitino’s early impressions of the Big Ten are interesting.

Watch all the Big Ten men's coaches speak

Here are the podium press conference sessions from all 12 Big Ten men’s basketball coaches. Indiana’s Tom Crean: “We have a lot to learn. I think the biggest thing we’re trying to get accomplished right now is to get our team to understand — this team to understand what it takes to practice at a championship level and showing the standards of last year, not necessarily who it was, but how it was done, I think is the most important thing.” Illinois’ John Groce: “We want to play faster this year.

Big Ten Geeks: Minnesota 2013-14 Preview

Last year, the Gophers started out strong but ended the season on a low note. Soon after Minnesota was eliminated from the NCAA Tournament, Athletic Director Norwood Teague made a change at the top, dismissing Tubby Smith after 6 seasons at the helm. Richard Pitino has taken over the program at the ripe age of 31. He’s younger than me, and he probably doesn’t use Facebook much because it’s not cool anymore. 2013 Record: 21-13 (8-10) Conference Offensive Efficiency: 1.04 (4th) Conference Defensive Efficiency: 1.04 (8th) Percentage of Conference Minutes Returning: 48 Percentage of Conference Minutes Played by Returning Freshmen:

Clothes Call: Check out these Big Ten hoops changes

A new basketball season is upon us. Before the ball tips early next month, let’s take a look at some of the new uniform and court designs we’ll see around the Big Ten this season. A little warning, there aren’t nearly as many changes this year as there were last, and that goes for both the uniforms and the courts. Some good news: After talking to team representatives, it seems like we won’t see the adidas “Bleed Out” or Nike “Hyper Elite Road” uniforms that debuted last season. That doesn’t mean the companies won’t come out with some other new
