Every day is an important day for Michigan. The more 1 seeds mid-majors that win their conference tourneys, helps Michigan's chances as it saves NIT bids.

We also get to watch Wisconsin destroy OSU on their senior day at 4:30 on CBS.
It's a scrambled, self-aggrandizing defense from Izzo-ner. This line made me vomit a little in my mouth:
"It's not the first time Izzo, the Big Ten's dean of coaches, has defended a colleague."
I'd honestly never registered that he has the longest tenure in the conference. He appears to have none of the wisdom and dignity I'd associate with the honorific.
I will only start this thread because I'm confidnet I'm the only Belmont grad part of this MGoBlog community.
I couldn't be more proud of Belmont for being the first in the tourney, especially considering they have won 2 out of their first 3 years years being part of the OVC.
Any predictions on who will win the other 'MidMajors?'
Matchup issues for other conferences?
Thoughts on conference champioships for MidMajors? Worth it? Not worth it?
Best time of the year!
We just got our tickets to Thursday's game. My first Big Ten Tournament. Go Blue!
