    Not bad but could see Maryland/Purdue/Indiana switched around with Marylands lose to Michigan and Purdues lose to Illinois despite Indianas schedule, though they probably started a few spots lower so a combination of moving up and down. But pretty solid.

    My fued with Indiana fans started because I signed up the year Michigan and Indiana were both top 5 teams for a while.

    Michigan vs Indiana
    Trey Burke vs Victor Oladipo for BTPOY / NPOY
    Beilein vs Crean
    Indiana won the BTT, Michigan made the NC game.

    There was a lot of trolling material both ways.

    Yes the posters from several fan bases aspire to make every thread about them.

    Agree. It is especially frustrating when the thread topic has nothing to do with that fan base. Both the PU/Rutgers and the PU/OSU threads go sideways because people from other schools have to weigh in with posts that they know are going to send the conversation into the gutter (and that's exactly what they want). I was really hoping that after Matt was sent away that a "normal" conversation could be had about my school. That hasn't been the case.

    What would be nice is if we could just start a thread for those that want to "fight" and slew crap around and just let them go at it for as long as they want but they have to leave it there. I know, not possible, but I can wish.

    Why flip Purdue and Iowa? Iowa beat them already. Should stay the same.

    To their credit it's been better than last season but yes it's absurd.

    Yeah that's why I have the Hawks at 1. If Purdue wins at Iowa then I'd flip em because it's a what have you done for me lately type poll. If they lose I'd flip em down below Md if Md wins at MSU. Whoa! I've just realized that I've made my rankings almost meaningless...nvm

    Nebraskas about right there. It'll be interesting to see how we do against Michigan tomorrow, probably either a Michigan blowout or a close Nebraska win

    You guys just beat MSU on the road and we just let Minnesota play with us at home. Michigan is hard to predict without LeVert. I think there is about a 25% chance of each of the 4 scenarios (Michigan blowout, Michigan close win, Nebraska blowout, and Nebraska close win).

    Michigan can't defend and if the shots aren't falling it's hard for Michigan to keep pace. An atmosphere like Pinnacle tomorrow could be enough to rattle our shooters.

    My boys are GOOD, but watch out for Purdue on Sunday. A wounded animal in the BIG 10 race. They lose, they are out.


    Something tells me they show up on Sunday.

    Totally agree...it's fun watching almost all the games this year because you know both teams have a chance and it will have an impact on the conference. IU/NW Mi/Ne Md/MSU then PU/IA...that's a great lineup for the weekend.

    I'm actually satisfied with that win. Double digit win on the road against a surging Nebraska team that just got done winning in the Breslin Center and without Levert.

    And how the hell could anyone objective have Purdue ahead of IU? IU is 7-0 (6-0 at time of piggy's post) and PU is 5-2.They've played 4 common opponents with PU having more "impressive" wins over Wisky and Rutgers,and IU dominating an OSU squad that PU struggled with and throttling a UI team (that Nebraska also beat) and PU lost to by double digits.

    Anybody ranking IU behind anyone but Iowa,is not being reflective of how the respective teams have played this B1G season...

    Why would you have PU anywhere in the Top 4? They played a good half vs Iowa,but lost to a pathetic UI team that both IU and Nebraska have already beaten.

    PU has beaten 3 teams I'd put in the "good" category in the B1G in the past 2 yrs combined.Iowa without White and OSU without Loving last season,and Mich without Levert this season.I haven't bought into the PU hype,they looked pretty pedestrian vs OSU and I'm a hater so you can dismiss my post if you want to.But at some point PU is going to have to actually beat SOMEBODY if people are going to continue to tout them as a "contender"...

    Purdue is going to have to beat somebody is the litmus test? IU has beaten who exactly -6,7,9,10,12,13,14?

    Purdue beat 5,6,9,12,14 and lost to #1 Iowa and Illinois in a stinker. So I guess I'd say they beat more of a someone than IU. Look, it's too early to tell so I guess Putting IU ONE PLACE behind my beloved Boilers makes me a complete homer and way off base here. IU will probably go undefeated and win it all...better?
