i have to admit, i havent been keeping up with the big ten, working on the house, tshirt ideas, and physical therapy congrats to jam and MW for the Illini win over the gophers a week back, looks ike the Illini are playing better, i kinda knew the gophers would implode, always do, so i wasnt let down, it has been a real up and down seson all the way through the big 10, the tourney should be great, just by game play and stats indy should be the fav, but ya never know how it will play out.
Just a note on 2 of the big ten and what they are doing to raise money for Make A Wish. They have decided to have a contest before they play the game with each other. They have started a drive from both schools to see who can get the most donations. This has happened before and they are great at getting donations. They each have gazillions of Alumni so this should be a big donation for the Make a Wish Foundation. Oh yes, the two are Michigan State and Michigan.

once the gophers hit conference play they tanked, they did it the last two years, but big ten basketball is the best, i think indina will win the b10 tourney, but ohio, wis and illini have come on strong lately......... heck id have better luck picking a plate race, haha

Its a good thing you didn't pick Michigan over Penn State. PSU pulled off the shocker.

You're right on the jinx. I didn't think your team got lucky, they did play hard, especially the big fella. (I forget the name now) Hoosiers couldn't hit a free throw late to save their life, and they've had a few struggles when on the road this year. I'm hoping for at least a final four, but they need to be a bit more consistent. Hulls can sure get hot and Oladipo may be player of the year.
Congrats to Indiana for outright winning the Big10 Regular Season Championship. Now if only your coach wasn't such an a#@hole.
You just don't go up to a member of the coaching staff that preceded yours and scream at them for what they did or didn't do. It strikes me as taunting after just beating the other guy's team and outright winning a Big10 Title. He would have had multiple opportunities to express his opinion in years past.
