So, how many bids will the Big 10 get?  I've seen brackets that have them with 12 right now.  I think by law a conference with "10" in the conference name should only be able to get 10 bids max.  Ohio St. is fading badly but it's hard to tell the rest apart.

Ohio State is miraculously not even going to miss the tournament even at 7-13, or so it appears based on NET forecasting. They are still a 6/7 seed in spite of all this and the awful Q1 record because the efficiency numbers have held up their NET. Sorry for letting you guys down earlier this year Sad

Michigan is the likelier candidate to be held out (in spite of the superior Gonzaga win!) and has dropped to 9/10 seed territory due to their similar skid. Also have to assume Purdue is out - that scary schedule is more of a curse than a blessing in the race to stay more than a game over .500.

I think 9.5 or slightly fewer feels like the safe projection. Minnesota could be in a heap of trouble with a loss this weekend. As could tOSU if it gets really bad. Disappointed that Indiana appears to be on track now in spite of the minefield in front of them.

Guess the SEC and ACC benefit from this when the A-10 bubble takes bad losses.

I tuned into the LSU-Texas game with LSU leading 50-34.  They now trail 56-58.

Memphis led SMU 70-59 with about 5 minutes left, and never scored again.  They lost 74-70.

With two games left in this week's pick'em, the five of us playing managed to pick all four possible combinations (Indiana + Michigan State was the one picked twice).

Sprouts is guaranteed at least a tie for first, but if the Ind/MichSt combo hits I'll catch up to him.

Game like that hurts way more than losing one by 40

At home, too.  I watched a lot of it, and they were playing well until that point and then just disintegrated.

So sad I can’t make it back “home” to Iowa City to go to the Illinois/Iowa game with some friends, but I have an exam on Monday and wouldn’t want to be driving during the Super Bowl.  If it were Saturday, I’d think about it.  It’s hard to believe Illinois could be playing for EIGHT in a row in this year’s Big Ten, assuming they can take care of business vs. Minnesota at home.  Iowa is super tough when they’re hitting threes.

I'm probably looking at going to C-U for Senior Night (lol our only seniors are Kipper (blah), Underwood (lol Coach's son), and Oladimeji (?)) against Iowa. In reality it should be Ayo and maybe Kofi's final home game. I really think there is no tougher team left on our schedule than Iowa.

At the half, Vanderbilt leads Kentucky at Rupp, 35-28.  This is not a typo. Smiley
