    The season is upon us B1G fans. It's time for that irrational confidence of the offseason to be replaced with the reality of actual opponents with a pulse.

    Time for @hailtoyourvictor to ramp up the trolling (is that possible).
    Time for @SNU0821 to practice his animal sounds (Mooooo!) and preach the greatness of the chosen one (hope his IU career doesn't end like his namesake's)
    Time for @herkiesrevenge (ie. Gil) to show up once a week to enlighten us to the greatness of Franny!
    Time for @JohnHoosierr to embarrass the rest of the Purdue faithful.
    Time for @MileHighSpartan to believe this is Izzo's most talented team until they lose in the 2nd round again.
    Time for @bMORE607 to drop a few too many expletives
    Time for @Deathclutch to be crushed under the miniscule weight of Eric Curry's fragile body (Hope you stay healthy young man)
    Time for @Jaycg15 to continue to tell us that it's a process for Brad Underwood and patience is a virtue
    Time for @jwardelt to enjoy Ethan Happ's 7th and final year on Wisconsin's campus
    Time for @superhusker33 to enjoy a successful season for Nebraksa...including an NIT championship
    Time for @Mgkcbb to lurk until called out and drop some sick win shares stats on the rest of us.
    Time for @Katatonic to be the token NW fan who posts once a month
    Time for @RutgHoops to show up occasionally and remind us all that Rutgers fans do in fact exist
    TIme for @ScarletnGrayBuck to stop by once in a while to talk OSU football (basketball won't have much to talk about)
    TIme for our resident Penn State fan....wait, do we have a resident Penn State fan?





    @Kevin Bryan, can we get a pin on this thread?

    Alright, I’m ready to do my final preseason prediction

    1. Michigan
    2. MSU
    3. Indiana
    4. Nebraska
    5. Wisconsin
    6. Purdue
    7. Maryland
    8. Iowa
    9. Minnesota
    10. Ohio State
    11. Penn State
    12. Illinois
    13. Rutgers
    14. Northwestern

    Edit: the conference is much deeper as a whole this year. Making this list was hard in the middle. Many potential tournament teams.

    Anyone else a little hesitant to put OSU so low? Did it last year and got destroyed. Granted, I think it's more warranted this year, but still, they proved everyone wrong last year.

    Yep. I think Holtmann is a great coach and may prove to be one of the best 2-3 in the league after a few years.

    I'll eat the crow, but he doesn't have two top 50 upperclassmen on the roster this year. This is basically his year one.

    I think you will see a flip flop of Indiana and Ohio State this year and both will be on the same path starting next year for the foreseeable future.

    To add on to this. This is when you feel the hurt after losing an entire recruiting class to transfers

    Do you guys know some sort of black magic that's going to teach your team to play a lick of defense?

    Maybe Bohannon will be declared ineligible. That would definitely help their defense.

    Oh yes, they brought in a defensive specialist this summer to teach the coaches.
