    This was an atrocious performance but I have to think they’re thinking of the long game here. 1/9 from the free throw line? Ward has to come back.

    Unbelievable. 13 point lead with 12 to go and lose by 10. I can’t believe the opportunities we’ve blown at Michigan and at Purdue.

    Congrats Vinegar Strokes. The #Michigan State Spartans are #9 in this week's AP poll, which means they can be considered as the least impressive team in the top 10 :thumb:

    Though Nevada is still my pick ...

    MSU is good,
    UM is good
    Purdue is HOT
    Maryland is ok
    Wisky is ok
    Iowa and everyone else is average or below average.

    I can’t comment on the Ward vs Tesky debate cause I haven’t seen Tesky play.

    OH AND HERKY IS A BITCH.

    "Least impressive" amongst the top 10 is the discussion. So it's all relative. And of course you have a high SOS ...

    For the same reason there's talk every September about what the football playoff committee will do if 5 teams go undefeated. For some dumb reason they just assume teams who looked good here or there are going to win out.
     
  23. Manny

    Manny I love lamp.

    Think that was hype based off the B1G's strong non conference performance. Since conference play started I think most people realized that was too boastful. Purdue, MSU, UM, Wisky, Maryland are locks, and Iowa should be barring epic collapse so that's 6. Idk what Minny's remaining schedule looks like but I feel like they should make it, however they have tilted and lost their shit and tanked before so it's possible they miss. OSU, Northwestern, Indiana and Nebraska all shit the bed. I'd say 7 make it with the possibility of Iowa/Minny imploding and someone lower getting hot and going on a run and take their place.

    I also don’t think there’s much depth in other conferences. The Pac-12 is awful and right now would only get two teams. The Big East isn’t great and looks to get 1-2 bids less than normal. The Atlantic 10 and Mountain West could be one-bid leagues. Bids have to come from somewhere.

    Yeah, they're definitely better than their record. They were way too ambitious with their nonconference scheduling.
