This is a down year for the big ten especially at the top. OSU will lose to Duke and probably one or two others will go to the ACC. On the plus side, both Indiana and Michigan have their mojo back and will be serious powers for years to come.

It might be slightly weaker at the top, but the depth is the best it has been in a long time. OSU is a national title contender (and IMO better than Duke). Wisconsin, Michigan, Michigan St. and Purdue are pretty much locks for the tourney. Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Northwestern, and Iowa will all be solid teams with the potential to make the tourney. 2-3 of them likely will.

Agree with most of this, except Iowa is not a solid team by any stretch of the imagination. They were blown out by Creighton and Campbell. They may not win a Big Ten game.

The very fact there are black colleges is racist against white people. It seems their racist school has had trouble filling up due to black people going to other universities(this has been stated in articles you have posted) so now black colleges are forced to be less racist, and saying hey, we don't just accept black people here you know.

That's true. I still like the talent they have on the roster though, and think they have a good chance of turning it around. Maybe not NCAA tourney level, but I think they will win some games in the Big Ten.

Looking at their roster, they don't look as bad on paper as they have on the floor. I remember Basabe giving MSU fits last year, but he's started slow.

I'm interested to see what their home games look like on Big Ten Network. I am getting up there in years, and I can't recall ever seeing a player wearing a Nebraska basketball uniform on any highlight package.

I hear you. Devastating. Too bad for the guy. Hope they find a way to finish in the middle but unlikely unless there's exponential development. It was a good run.

I think it's likely Wisconsin loses to North Carolina. However, I'm really impressed with the guard play to date. Ben Brust has been a revelation alongside Jordan Taylor. Add in a more experienced Gasser, and these guys can compeltely fill it up. The key will be getting getting their bigs to play at a decent level.

Ohio State looked completely dominant last night. I expected them to win, but not in that fashion. I can't see how anyone can rank Kentucky ahead of them after that game.

MSU looked really good in its win at Gonzaga. Getting back to playing tough, physical Izzo-style basketball. Looking forward to the Big Ten opener at home with Indiana, should be interesting.

:yes: Draymond Green was an absolute beast at Gonzaga last weekend. I thought it was a joke that Michigan State was not ranked prior to the Gonzaga win.

There are probably eight teams in the Big 10 that should make the tourney. The tough schedule of conference play will probably knock it down to seven though.

Totally agree. Hopefully they continue this throughout the year. Only showed glimpses of this last year. I really like this group this year. Looking forward to watching them at the Bres' throughout the B1G season.

They needed a quality win for the ranking. Florida State at home was their best win before that, but they didn't look bad against UNC and Duke and they've been devouring their cupcakes.

Going to be a very tough road game for Indiana. With Jones and Sheehey likely out due to injuries Indiana has to find a way to quickly replace 25% of their offensive production. I expect MSU will give Indiana their first loss, but I am going to hold out hope they can keep this run going. The wildcard for Indiana will be their perimeter shooting. If the defense will allow them to screen and get looks from outside, they can get hot and put up points in a hurry.

Hard to see IU winning this game if both Sheehey and Jones are out. Hoosiers then follow up with Ohio State at home then at Michigan. Welcome to Big 10.

Will be a great game. If Sheehey and Jones out that means IU will have to rely on the three more than usual. If Watford and Hulls can continue to hit them at better than 50 percent, that won't be a bad thing. Just have to stop MSU from getting too many offensive boards.

I agree. Haven't seen much of MSU this year but I'm assuming they have their usual collection of big dudes who are tough on boards. Hoping Sheehey can play he's been really key to them this year. Can't find any info on their injuries though.

Crean was asked about their health and gave a very generic answer about making progress. He is either being coy or it is going to be a bit longer. I would not expect either to play.

MSU dominated early and took 18 point lead, IU fought back and is in the lead. :popcorn:

Was on a flight and missed game. Sounds like it was a good one. IU is going to hit some bumps in the road. Making the tournament this year would be a great accomplishment IMO.

Iowa is leading Wisconsin by 8 with 2:30 left. Thought the Hawkeyes were supposed to be horrible this year.

The Badgers are 3 for 26 on three pointers today with arguably their best collection of pure shooters in years. That's not to say that Iowa is horrible. Just saying this will most likely be Wisconsin's worst shooting performance of the season.

Just saw that stat, that's crazy. Iowa closes them out at Wisconsin. Hopefully IU can get the upset later today against the Buckeyes!

Iowa pulls out the first big upset of the Big 10 season, taking down Wisconsin on the road. :thumbup:
