    We're a relatively deep conference (the difference between #4 and #10 is very small), but pretty mediocre at the top. The top teams are generally your hope to go deep in the tourney. I don't see any of the top 3 going very far. Maybe sparty, I don't like betting against Izzo, but I'm not confident. That team is flawed.

    I agree. That team is Green and then a bunch of role players. He could maybe put them on his back and make it to the Elite 8, but I don't see them going further. If he has a bad game or gets in foul trouble, they could lose in the second round.

    NW'ern was down by 15 in the first half at Iowa, and had a huge run to go up 42-35 at the half.

    Their lead is still 7 points at the under-12 TV timeout. A win might be enough to get them into their first NCAA Tournament, if there aren't many upsets in the conference tourney winners.

    UW up early against Illinois, 17-9. Brandon Paul has stormed out of the gates to the tune of 1-5 from the field.

    It unfortunately looks like scUM is going to take down PSU today, such that an OSU win over MSU creates a three-way tie for the Big Ten championship. Tim Frazier, PSU's best player who averages 18.8 ppg, is 3-15 from the field today with 9 points.

    Indiana fans are really classy:tongue2: Yesterday, near the end of the Purdue game they started chanting the name of a player who was kicked off the Purdue squad a couple weeks. Even the announcer, can't remember if it was Gus Johnson, said something that the postgame handshake might be interesting but nothing came of it. The Purdue player's name they chanting was Kelsey Barlow. Thanks might even get more interesting in the years to come.

    Anyone know the rules for seeding in the B1G tourney? I'm mostly confused as to how we are the 3 seed.

    I could care less about the seedings. Just play SCum away from that craphole of Crisler Arena and whoop that ass. Then bring on the NCAA tourney.

    Below are the All-Big 10 selections by the Coaches and Media.

    I had a hard time believing that Green was the only unanimous first-team selection. I wonder what idiots did not think that Sullinger belonged on the first-team. I also think that Shurna should have been a unanimous selection because without him Northwestern would probably be worse than Nebraska.

    I also think that Zeller and Burke should have been co-freshman of the year but the coaches picked one and the media and the media picked the other.

    I also do not think that Izzo was deserving of the Coach of the Year award. I think that the guy from TSUN did a better job with less talent. I would also have given Carmody some consideration because he did so much with so little.

    I agree Carmody should have gotten the COY award, especially if they end up with their first ever NCAA bid.

    Feel bad for the guy. His players were very selfish this season.

    It will be interesting to see who Nebraska can get to come in and resurrect that program.
