Looks like Michigan is extending that lead. Does Rutgers have it in them to make a run?

Teams behind us are losing. Time to take what’s ours and win tomorrow! I know these nexts 5-6 games are huge - but these next 3 specifically could really put us in a position to be in the hunt for the Big Ten title until the end of the season if we win tomorrow, and get revenge on probably the two favorites in Maryland and MSU.

Go Illini!

After today and a 3rd loss for MSU I think the Illini are the favorite. MSU has 5 road games and Maryland has 5 road games and they both play each other twice and have to come to CU. If we hold home court and win a few road games our beloved are in the driver's seat and even more so if we can win tomorrow.

..and some behind us are winning. They are all behind us...and that is a good position. We control our destiny

It is amazing what can happen in a short period of time. Six weeks ago a lot of the people on here were of the opinion we wouldn't make the tourney and should be looking for a new coach. Now everyone expects to win the B1G.
The good news is that we are probably the favorite now to win the league. The bad news is that there is still about 6 weeks left. I am not going to get greedy. I will be happy to finish out 5-5 and get a decent seed in the tourney (although I would be lying to say I wouldn't like to see more wins). They will have exceeded almost everyone's expectations for the season if they do so.

Yep. And we were a very different team 6 weeks ago so there was reason for concern, but man did they turn it on. Not sure I would consider us a favorite just yet, but we certainly have as good a chance as anyone including MSU.
