Not a huge BB fan but ouch, where did the B10 go?

MSU?
MSU hasn't been anything special for awhile.

Illinois is receiving way too much name bias, imo. They lost 7 of their top 8 players. Sure, they landed some good transfers and had a strong '22 class but....c'mon man. Most teams in that situation would not be included in the top 25. The entire team is a giant question mark.

Just one more team Iowa will finish in front of...

The ISU model? Yeah, I’m curious to see how that works out. I think Michigan is slightly underrated. The more I think about it, the more I like this Iowa team. Point guard is a big question, but I like the rest of the pieces.
