Although its different given right now given Villanova is a half game ahead of Creighton in the standings, so they would win it by either method - win % or just win-loss recordFWIW, the Big East also decided to give their title to the team with the highest percentage. Creighton is likely to have more wins while Villanova has the higher percentage.
While I don't think many of us are overly fixated on who wins the regular season, we all have bigger goals for this team in mind
Or if only MIchigan was required to play at least a 19 game schedule like everyone else in the big ten then this is a moot point - then there wouldn't be a conflict between win-loss record and win %
Yes, yes, yes. I know. B$G loves Michigan and hates IL. I get it. The team can't control any of that. What they could have controlled is the games they played and like it or not, they stumbled in games they could have/ should have won. Win one of the two and the dependency on MSU is less. Win both of those games and it wouldn't matter what happens between Mich/MSU. It's kinda crummy but in the long run they did it to themselves first before B$G corp messed it up even more.Or if only MIchigan was required to play at least a 19 game schedule like everyone else in the big ten then this is a moot point - then there wouldn't be a conflict between win-loss record and win %
MSU and Nebraska were required to play games every other day for long stretches to make up their games. It's beyond ridiculous Michigan was treated differently and not required to make up their games
Well, I believe that they are missing games against MSU (2), NW, IU and PSU. UI missing a 2nd against tO$U. Depending on the results the next 4 days, those numbers will change.I am in the camp that because of this year's imbalanced schedule the Big Ten should find a way to take each teams schedule into account this year. However, as of today Michigan has played a tougher schedule than Illinois. Michigan's BT opponents have a winning percentage 44.6% and Illinois' have a 43.4% winning percentage. That surprised me.

After last night's games Michigan still has had a tougher schedule than Illinois based on opponent's in-conference winning percentages. If you add in our yet to be played game against Ohio State, and their final game against Michigan State, they still have a tougher schedule than Illinois. IF they were to play the missing games their schedule against the 10th, 11th and 12th place teams only they *might* end up with an easier schedule than Illinois--but then again they might also have more wins.The game I think they could have dropped is against PSU. They play fearless and up to the level of the opponent.
Plus, they have a bunch of guys who can really score.
