How Livers would do face-to-face against his Spartan counterpart is really a minor factor, since we'll only play them once or twice in an 18 game BT season. What's more important is how much each will contribute to their team's success over the course of the whole year. Will Livers do better against Indiana than his counterpart? Against Purdue, Maryland, Iowa, Wisconsin? That's how you really judge their relative value.
