"What (Michigan coaches) told me is that they're focusing on point guards right now, but if anything opens up, they'll definitely come back on and recruit me as hard as they were," said Towns
M-Wolverine seems to have dropped the ball (teasing) so here is the open thread for today's game. Talk amongst ourselves. And give regular score updates if you all will, for us chumps at work that are relying on this threads for following the game.
Since Indiana just lost to OSU tonight, I was wondering what the Big Ten Tournament seedings could be. This is the schedule for the remaining Big Ten conference games and the winners of each game in my completely subjective opinion:
Michigan @ Purdue
Minnesota @ Nebraska
Wisconsin @ Michigan State
Penn State @ Northwestern
Minnesota @ Purdue
Nebraska @ Iowa
Indiana @ Michigan
Northwestern @ Michigan State
Illinois @ Ohio State
Wisconsin @ Penn State
This would result in a 4-way tie atop the conference between Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, and Ohio State. According to the tiebreaking procedures from last year's tournament, the seeding would work out as follows:
|1. Indiana||7. Iowa|
|2. OSU||8. Illinois|
|3. Michigan||9. Purdue|
|4. MSU||10. Northwestern|
|5. Wisconsin||11. Nebraska|
|6. Minnesota||12. Penn State|
Here is the 2013 Big Ten Tournament bracket. In the scenario I described, Michigan would be playing the winner of Minnesota vs Nebraska. If I made a mistake, please correct me.
EDIT: Fixed. I think UM would be the 3 seed by virtue of losing the comparison to OSU against Wisconsin.
