Big Ten Basketball 2019-20 Discussion

Pretty shocked at the lack of Purdue in many brackets. The overall record isn’t good but most the other stuff is better than the majority of bubble teams.

The raw number of losses is just so high that it’s tough to see them getting in. But…beat Rutgers on the weekend, then beat us next week, and you’d think they’d be in.


Equally shocking to me is that some are stating that Rutgers won’t make the tournament unless they beat Purdue and/or beat the first opponent in the BTT. I realize the lack of road wins, but the home wins are pretty impressive. (shrug) That’s why they don’t pay me to guess.

Both Purdue and Rutgers are pushing the limits as far as number of losses (Purdue) or number of road/neutral wins (Rutgers).

What a doubleheader on a Saturday.Wisconsin-Indiana at noon and then Rutgers-Purdue at 2 pm. Putting the local pizza joint on speed dial.


Rutgers and Purdue are a good test case on how much the selection committee really values the net rankings.

I think Garza is going to find himself in some foul trouble once he gets away from the B1G.


I usually find stuff like this mean, and this is really mean, but I just can’t stop laughing…


I don’t see any chance Langford plays at MSU next year.

I’ve also come to believe the others here who said Tillman will go pro. I’ve paid more attention to him recently and his defense is fantastic. He’ll get taken late in the 1st round.

What do you think Foster’s faceplants per 40 minutes is? Gotta be top 10 nationally.

Who do we want to win this OSU/Illinois game with respect to our 6 or 7 seed chances?

Refs are completely slanting this game in OSU’s favor.

ej Lidell is developing into something, loved him as a prospect

Kaleb Wesson gets away with two forearm push-offs and is rewarded with a weak and-one call against Cockburn. Meanwhile, Benetti and Dakich are falling all over themselves to praise the officiating.

Wesson has been officiated so much different this year. Last year he couldn’t stay on the floor with all of his fouls and somehow this year he isn’t getting called for nearly as much.

Don’t believe Michigan can do better than #8 if OSU wins tonight because of the H2H tiebreaker.

I’ll only talk about how bad Michigan is for playing a close game in Columbus


This scenario still lands us as the 7 seed. Not gonna happen but. We can still hope.
