Good morning, and thanks for your continued support of Extra Points.

Pardon our dust, as we're finishing up a few website tweaks for this week. Our new logo should be live, and you should now be able to more easily browse newsletters by topic. We're adding a few other features over the next few days as well, which I hope you'll enjoy!


Back when I used to work at SB Nation, one of my favorite posts we'd run every year came from Mark Rutherford, who so helpfully recapped the major men's college basketball storylines for casual college sports fans that had been mostly just paying attention to college football. I freely admit to being one of those people.

But now, college football season is very over. National signing day(s) are wrapped up. Barring Auburn craziness, which is a sentence you could type pretty much any day of the year, the coaching cycle has (probably) ended. This is college basketball's time to truly shine.
