Well, it appears that this weekend will go a long way to solidifying the B1G as the toughest and best conference in college basketball this year or amplify that the conference is over rated once again.
OSU has Arizona and an up start (probably the easiest road if you can say that)
IU has Syracuse and more than likely MIami the tournament darling
MSU will have to knock off Duke and Louisville which is monumental if they do
UM has to beat Kansas and probably Florida or at least a Florida school and that won't be an easy task
Right now, Vegas has OSU and IU favored in the sweet 16 games and MSU as well as UM dogs.
I for one want to see at least 2 teams make it to the final four but would love to see all 4 do it. Right now, I think OSU and UM have the best chance based off of the way they are playing. IU has a decent shot and if MSU makes to Atlanta, Izzo should be coach of the year.
Time for the B1G to put up or shut up.
What say you?
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
4 of the 16 is something people should be talking about (and Illinois near upset) especially considering 2 is the next highest from the ACC and the Pac.
Meatchicken has looked the sharpest of the bunch and they have the most talented player in the country, imo. If I am picking the dogs - they are in over MSU and their road.
If MSU is out because of their road, then OSU needs to be in based on their's. I thought they were an Elite 8 team but their is no excuse for missing the Final 4 with the opponents they face.
Miami is a lot people's 'darkhorse' for the championship game but IU should have plenty of talent to beat them. If Illinois can put a damper on Larkin then VO should be able to keep him near single digits.
If the B1G lands 2-3 in the final 4 then I don't think it matters who wins, best conference should be a settled matter.
Can you imagine an all-B1G final 4? I know probably very unlikely but that would be nuts. I don't think I'd want it though because I'm tired of going up against B1G teams. One team I don't want to face...Kansas. They seem to have our number and Withey (or Whitey according to Sir Charles) plays lights out against us it seems.
Cleveland Orchestra Baby!! World's greatest!! The Brown's wet dream is to be them. The Ohio State University-Where the Illibuck Lives!
