3/7 Weekend Games

#1
So at this point, we need to go ahead and root for Wisconsin to lose today. Then MSU and MD to lose at home. Given the teams they are playing, it could happen.

I know this doesn't impact the seeds, but a share of the B1G regular season title is still on the line.

If we win and Wisconsin loses, we can get the three seed if MSU and MD both win. While I'd prefer a share of the title, that share gives us a four seed every time.

I do NOT want to play Iowa in the first game we play. We've legitimately lost to Iowa 4 out of the last 5 Big Ten Tournaments I'm pretty sure.

Hmm, the three seems likely to give us Iowa on Friday assuming the Hawkeyes beat the Hoosiers on Thursday. The four seed likely gives us Penn State if they beat the Gophers on Thursday. Now that I look at it, I think I'd rather play PSU than play Iowa twice in five days.

I would like to see Illinois, Wisconsin, Purdue, Maryland, Penn St And Mich St win. I would love the 4 seed with Wisconsin, Penn St, Purdue, Michigan, and Minnesota in the Top Bracket. We are 9-0 against this group. Northwestern would be in there to play Minnesota on Wed. The bottom would have Mich St, Maryland, Iowa, Ohio St ,Rutgers, Indiana, and Nebraska. We are 4-7 against this group.

All of this, yes!

Seems like a dream scenario for us. The worst things that can happen are MD or UW losing it seems, most of those scenarios lead to us playing some combination of Iowa then (MD or MSU). I'd much prefer a PSU, UW route.

So can Illinois still move up to the 2-3 seed or is our best case a 4 seed with a win over Iowa?

Wisconsin wins 8 straight down the stretch to close out the regular season.

Gard has to be BIG COY. They don't have s*** in terms of talent; to win a share of the title is a huge accomplishment

Purdue is going to get to the Championship. That would make them 19-16. Might do it for them.

Interestingly that coincides when Kobe King left the program.
Wisc had 5 home games of the eight with Ne, Mich, and Ind on the road. They only got Maryland once and that was at home. They still did it but it was one of the better schedules from their standpoint.
