    I was wondering what some of your guys opinions were on the topic. I think the Big Ten will be better than last year with more competition
    My rankings would be as such
    1. MSU
    2. Minny
    3. Purdue
    4.Northwestern
    5. Iowa
    6. Michigan
    7. Maryland
    8. Wisconsin
    9. Indiana
    10. Penn State
    11. Illinois
    12. OSU
    13. Nebraska
    14. Rutgers
    I know a lot of people are going to get triggered put this is purely for input and discussion on what we think will happen. An argument could be made to switch a few and I would like to here what you have to say.

    nor does Wisconsin, Iowa 4th or 5th, they have not finished worse that 6th since the 11-12 season when they finished 7th.

    Unfortunately, your takes about Purdue don't hold much weight.

    Alright, yup me saying lol is me not liking it. It was more of an ask for an explanation to see why he thinks that. Unlike some people I don't flip out when someone has an opinion differently than mine. But I am interested in your take on the topic

    until they prove they can finish #1 I am not buying it, as you keep telling me you are doing the same thing by not taking into consideration the other teams.
    until Purdue the BT Champion is dethroned they should be the #1 choice, Wisconsin has not finished outside the top 4 since Bo Ryan became their HC, so they get the benefit of the doubt.

    Iowa has finished 3rd twice and 5th once in the last 3 years, so a 4th place finish is not out of the question.
    Minnesota for the 1st time in 12 years had a winning record in the BT will have to prove they belong
    NW 1st time in their entire History makes the NCAA's and will need to prove they belong
    OSU, Illinois and Indiana will all have new coaches after firing their coaches
    Rutgers it will take them a couple years
    PSU can their coach show something other than the occasional win over the top teams in the BT
    Maryland still is a contender for a top 4 finish.
    Michigan still has to prove where they belong and Fran has won the last 5 in a row going back to 2013.

    this season it will all come down to matchups and where they will be played
    there are 5 home and home series and 8 1 n done games 4 away and 4 home

    preseason polls are only good for click baits and nothing more. plus its good to read until the season begins, that is my opinion and its not going to change just because you want it too.

    Perceived best team doesn't always win. For once i agree with @gilligan19. Preseason picks are just for fun. Crazy things tend to typically happen. Guys get hurt, some unforeseen guys step up, some don't step up, some get ranked higher based on name, some don't because of their name, some add one person that makes all the different, some lose one guy that makes all the difference. You can go on and on so don't get your panties in a wad because some random internet poster slighted your team by predicting they finish 2nd instead of 1st. You sound like a little bitch.

    Outside of MSU, I don't have a clue. It's weird, though - I feel better about IU being predicted 9th this year than I felt last year when they were one of the favorites to win it.

    I take every preason poll with a grain of salt even when Iowa is in one and to date they have not been in anybodies preseason poll since Fran took over.
    they cater to the elite schools and teams that just played in the last NCAAT.

    Let them? I embraced it,I asked him to elaborate. I think it's good when people have different view points. It makes it more interesting. I don't get why you disagree with everything I say now that I said I don't think Iowa will be top 3. Like literally everything. It makes you sound stubborn and childish

    Not angry at all, you using a response of lol and nothing else shows your lack of, well, an IQ. You were offended your team wasn't 1st and instead of using some critical thinking skills you got upset like a little bitch. Those are just the facts of the situation.

    He's another one who's acting all emotional. They lost the best player they've probably had since at least one of the baby boilers if not the big dog. Haas still hasn't proven he can stay out of foul trouble and he'll be relied upon more. They could be as high as 3rd and as low as 12th.

    Lack of IQ? Get upset? All I did was say lol dude. You gave your opinion, and I responded with mine. If you call disagreeing getting upset and lack of IQ than everyone on this board has a lack of gets upset and lacks IQ

    to add to this I gave a detailed reason as to how I feel about each team. no homerism no personal bias, just a plain opinion on each team.

    You responded with lol like my 10 year old niece. You have the IQ of a 10 year old congrats. Strength of schedule, injuries, etc all impact the year. Why didn't MSU win the B1G the year before last? Shit happens that's why.

    Because I used lol apparently I have he IQ of a 10 year old got it. What I'm saying is you can't just predict shit to happen to one team and base it off that. Besides that, what's your reasoning. Like I'd get if you think they have a better team or defense but all you say is shit happens that's why I have Minny first

    Because I think they'll have the better team. MSU has some good pieces but they never played well together as a team. When your seniors will be riding the bench, that's never a good sign IMO.

    you are using 2 flawed thoughts
    1st by taking preseason polls as the end all
    2nd you are using the star ranking's off MSU's recruits, with out taking into consideration. TEAM chemistry, or KEY INJURIES that usually happen.
