    Good win for Iowa tonight . Next 4 games are key to the season . All 4 are winnable ( at NW, OSU, at PSU, Illinois ). If we can get at least 3 of them I think we will be in a good spot for a tourney bid

    If you all can beat OSU, even at home, I will be impressed. That was a good win over Nebraska. Nice shot to close out the first half, lol.

    Big10 is much improved this year yet I still think they have 2 Of the most overrated pre season teams.

    How the flying fuck did people think this Maryland team was a potential top 3 big10 team?

    Ugh, we suck again

    losing to Rutgers is a MAJOR letdown

    now we play @Iowa and serious risk of starting the new year in conference 0-3.

    Yeah I think they will start playing to the mean.

    Preseason myself and many didn’t think they’d be very good at all.

    Now they look real shaky.

    Ultimately I think it’s in the middle. Solid team, tourney team. But not top 15.

    Figured they'd do better than projected, but I was thinking anywhere between 5-8 was possible.

    Yup that’s exactly where I had them.

    Big 10 is gonna be such a cluster

    Ohio State has a ridiculous stretch coming up:

    vs. Maryland
    vs. Purdue
    at Nebraska
    at Michigan

    They really need to take their next 2 at home or they could be in some serious trouble.

    I do think they are regressing to a certain extent, but perhaps we overrated them based on their two wins against Creighton and Cincy, who are looking like NIT teams at this point.

    Badgers will continue to be overrated by national media based on their past success

    I think there's a pretty clear separation between 2 and 3. And basically none between 3-10. It's gonna be a ridculously fun B1G season. I think 11-14 are pretty clear as well. I'll take a stab at it, but generally have no idea who is going to finish where.

    1. Michigan
    2. Michigan State
    3. Maryland
    4. Indiana
    5. Iowa
    6. Nebraska
    7. Purdue
    8. Wisconsin
    9. Minnesota
    10. Ohio State
    11. Northwestern
    12. Penn State
    13. Illinois
    14. Rutgers

    I also think the difference between 3-10 will be like 2/3 wins in the loss column. Wouldn't surprise me to see 3rd place finish something like 12-8.

    Michigan's schedule gets pretty tough as well. They close January out with:

    @Wisky
    Minnesota
    @Indiana
    Ohio State

    Still have to play Maryland and MSU twice, along with road games at Iowa and Minnesota in February.

    Michigan will probably slip up at Michigan State, but that's probably a split with Michigan winning at home then. Wouldn't surprise me if they both went something like 18-2. I think both are that good. And while MD has gotten off to a good start, they've shown to be inconsistent. That's why they are lower rated in NET compared to teams like Nebraska and Purdue. But maybe that's just them being young at the beginning, and moving forward is who they are going to be.

    Either way, this is going to be a fascinating year. It's nice to see after the last couple years have been lacking.
