Today we conclude our daily countdown towards the tipoff of the Big Ten basketball season.

I've done this before, but it's worth repeating as tomorrow is the beginning of the 2015-16 college basketball season:

For some reason the college basketball offseason didn't seem very long, though part of that likely stems from the NBA running into the summer and the beginning of football in September. EIther way we're once again set for another season. Things will be a little different this time, with Wisconsin no longer at the top of the conference as it looks like Maryland and Michigan State are set to jump over the Badgers in Bo Ryan's last season. Oh, and speaking of Ryan, his comments shying away from his retirement announcement will most likely lead to plenty of speculation throughout the season about Ryan and if he'll actually return for another go in 2016-17.

Heading into the 2015-16 season I think it's safe to say there's plenty of debate over who will win the Big Ten, who will surprise people and who will disappoint. I think the more important question to ask is if the conference will finally win a title as it's been quite some time since Tom Izzo brought one home in 2000.
