    Now that we have a plethora of Rutgers fans, let’s talk about that horse shit non conference schedule.

    That was very Iowa-esque. Do better Rutgers.

    How the hell is SHU ranked ahead of MSU when we are both 14-4, MSU plays a tougher schedule, and we beat them at their place? o_O

    We only reference KenPom when it is in our best interest to do so (which, for Purdue, is pretty much always since KenPom loves him some Boilermakers!).

    I had Illinois at #21 in my preseason top 50. Not everyone agreed with my take for some reason.

    Ah. Well we won at their place....we also beat Rutgers....and Rutgers beat SHU...don't see much logic in having them ahead of us.

    Maybe the voters think Butler is a juggernaut and they really REALLY value SHUs road win over them?

    But the end of the year MSU will have a tougher schedule. Big East is down this year and B1G beat the shit out of them in the gavitt games.

    You are probably right, but lets just say I would enjoy Seton Hall winning it all this year.

    Simple answer - AP voters aren't that diligent and recency bias plays a big factor.

    Seton Hall has won 8 straight and MSU got bitchslapped last week by Purdue.

    Iowa destroyed Texas Tech and Maryland, both with similar records to Iowa. Both ranked ahead of Iowa.

    Zeb Jackson doesn’t start his HS team. Not sure how much he will contribute as a freshman. Have my fingers crossed that one of Todd or Christopher end up at Michigan. Will need their offense.

    Luka Garza is the Big Ten Player of the Week. CJ Fredrick is the Big Ten Freshman of the Week

    Well Cook couldn’t shoot so he took a lot of room away from Garza.

    Moss played no defense and would score 30 then go scoreless for a few games. So inconsistent

    lol at the ACC. People on the Duke board were complaining last week about Gonzaga being #1 and being able to coast through an easy WCC schedule the rest of the way. I pointed out how Gonzaga actually plays more top 40 games than Duke (and they do so with 4 less conference games). Our conference sucks this year. There's no way around it.

    That's crazy, but it won't mean shit if we all flame out in 2nd round (first round for Potato Turgeon).

    Helps when the conference does well in OCC. Now all these top 40 teams are beating up on each other it won't matter a ton in terms of number of teams in unless a few just completely tank, i'm looking at you Indiana, Purdue, Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, Penn State, Rutgers, Ohio State, Maryland, Minnesota, Wisconsin.

    Michigan State is 10-2 over the past two seasons in games where Aaron Henry scores in double-figures. Will control the ceiling in East Lansing. Has to emerge as a consistent third option.

    That's pretty accurate. He is the most athletic player on the team (maybe Gabe Brown) and the best all-around do-it-all type player. But he tends to disappear a lot. He also has a knack for picking up 2 quick fouls within the first 5 minutes of a game, resulting in him sitting until the 2nd half and then he's usually ice cold.
