Hoping like heck for an easy breezy 25+ pt win today, but any sort of victory will work.

Iowa wins, doesn't cover and the under. 75-69 good guys. As has been already said, any victory today by the Hawks will be a good one.

Man, Andy Katz is so tiring to listen to and endure in these 'studio segments'.

He brings something up and just keeps going on it, every chance he gets. Beats it like 3 dead horses.

Like today, the "IU NOT ELIMINATED (immediately)" if they lose today. You don't even believe that s* yourself, Katz, so move the **** on already!!

Iowa, starting today, has a lot to play for.

If they hang on to that #6 NCAA Tournament seed, they very well could end up in the Midwest/Chicago Regional.

Shelby Mast of USA Today currently has Iowa in the MIDWEST (Chicago) REGIONAL.

He has
#6 IOWA (22-9) starting off vs #11 Loyola Chicago (25-7) in San Diego, with the winner playing the winner of #3 Texas Tech (23-8) vs #14 Princeton (23-5).

Coming out of San Diego and advancing to the Sweet 16 means advancing to Chicago
, which means Iowa is one step closer to a National...well, you know. @EvilMonkeyInTheCloset


The 8 B1G teams that he has in:

Seed/Team:
2 Wisconsin
3 Purdue
4 Illinois
6 IOWA
6 Ohio State
8 Michigan State
10 Rutgers......... @MrsScrew
11 Michigan

Last 4 IN -
Wyoming, SMU, Dayton, Xavier (Jack Nunge)

First 4 OUT -
VCU, Wake Forest, BYU, Indiana

Next 4 OUT -
St Louis, Florida, Virginia Tech, St Bonaventure

Hopefully Hawks are paying attention.

NW came back after written off last night, and now IU doing the same, only a lot more effectively vs Michigan right now.


Meaning? Put the foot down on NW's throat and don't let up until there's only about a minute - or less! - left in the contest!

Michigan is on the left. They were ready to finish off IU. They never saw what was coming!

The worst coaching job this year (and it's not even close)?

Michigan was picked to win the B1G; they finished 8th.

And today, Michigan blows a 41-28 half time lead, losing to IU.


Comparing the 2021 Big Ten Media Preseason Poll (first-place votes in parenthesis) to Actual Results:


Actual.......Predicted

....1st.............3rd...Illinois 320 (3)

...5th.............9th...Iowa 150

....6th............4th...Ohio State 316

....7th............6th...Michigan State 262

...8th............1st...Michigan 373 (13)
