    Wait...they haven't played the Big Ten Tournament already? They played it a month before everyone else last year. Remember that?

    Initial gut prediction

    Illinois over NW
    Rutgers over Nebraska

    Indiana over OSU
    Penn St over Minnesota
    Iowa over Illinois
    Maryland over Rutgers

    Wisky over Maryland
    Indiana over MSU
    Iowa over Michigan
    Purdue over PSU

    Wisky over Indiana
    Purdue over Iowa

    Purdue over Wisky

    Of course I'll be completely wrong

    Right now ( barring insanity in other league tourneys) I think the top 7 in the B10 are in, winner of OSU/IU gets in and I still think Nebraska has an outside shot if they get to the title game . Everyone else needs to win the tournament

    If Nebraska makes it to the Quarterfinals I'll amazed. Hell, if they just beat Rutgers I'll be happy.

    An NIT invite will make me happy at this point. But even then I don't know that they would accept it.

    Ok, but hasn't IU been crap in this tourney historically?

    I just checked and they're 12-21 all time and were the runner up in 2001...

    If Illinois can get by NW, maybe they beat Iowa. Lack of post players kills their rebounding.

    Watch out for the Hoosiers

    Iowa is a bad matchup for illinois because of the post but they've been playing like shit for 6 weeks so it's certainly possible

    MSU has been crap against IU this year. Don’t understand how we can go 5-1 against Purdue, Wisconsin, Rutgers, and Michigan but 0-2 against IU.

    You didn't want to include Rutgers in that, but point taken. Honestly, sometimes strange stuff happens, and that's how I see Sparty vs IU...and to be fair, you guys lost to Illinois in that 3 game losing streak...so I wouldn't read too much into that loss at home...just timing and strange happenings

    You are correct, I was meaning Maryland but my brain switched the two.

    3 out of the 4 years since the tournament expanded to 14 teams after the addition of Maryland and Rutgers, at least 1 of the teams that has won on Wednesday has also won on Thursday. With the way Iowa has played down the stretch, I think they're more likely to have trouble on Thursday than Maryland.

    If NW beats Illinois I think they've got a good shot to beat Iowa. Illinois is just a great matchup for Iowa so Iowa would have to really really play awful for that game to be close . I was really happy we avoided a potential matchup with Rutgers . That's a bad matchup for Iowa

    Penn State falls just short and Sparty loses in the 1st round of the NCAA tourney... this is all obviously wrong...but what the hell
