so much for that
My family and I want to go to the Big Ten Championships in Indy this weekend. Michigan plays on Friday night at 6:30pm and then on Saturday at 4:05pm. What are the best ticket opportunities. I want to buy tickets for Friday but don't want to stay for Saturday if Michigan (heaven forbid) loses and doesn't play Saturday. Are there tickets available on the street to buy at an event like this. I hate to drive all that ways with All Session tickets and then have to watch other teams I am not interested in. For those of you that have traveled to these events in the past, what is the best avenue to take when going? Thanks in advance for the help.
Trey and Zeller were chosen as Co-Big Ten Freshman of the Week, giving them each 7 on the season. It's interesting foreshadowing for the All-Big Ten Awards that will be released later, as Freshman of the Year will almost certainly be one of the two.
(Let the record show that I accidentally stated Freshman of the Year at first, instead of Freshman of the Week. Hence the comments and the fail.)
On Lunardi's most recent bracket we are still a 3 seed, currently sitting in the East region with Syracuse on the top line and Duke as the 2. Vanderbilt is the 6 in our pod, which I hope changes between now and the tournament, since they will have a huge advantage in the Nashville location he assigns us to.
Assuming we can get through Northwestern to the Semis of the BTT and (probably) another game against Ohio, I don't see how we fall below a 3. Also, assuming Ohio and MSU are pretty solid 2 seeds, the tournament committee won't put us in the same region so there is no intra-conference game in the Sweet 16. My point here is that if Duke stays as a 2 seed, we have about a 50-50 chance of seeing them in the Sweet 16, if both teams make it through. I think fans of both schools would love another game, and we will want to avenge the loss in the tournament last year and in Hawaii at the beginning of the season this year.
Obviously it's a long week between now and Selection Sunday, and things will change. But, this might be an intriguing story to watch as it gets closer.

When Mike Hart once publically referred to MSU as "little brother", I was not happy about it, because there is no more of a unifying force than saying something like that... and when you dominate an opponent, you shouldn't be crass about it. But he said it, and they ran with it. So be it.
Well, Derrick Nix just referred to MBB as "little nephew"..... to quote him... "We had to share it with our little nephews," center Derrick Nix said. "And that (stinks)."
Now is the time for Michigan to run with it, and let karma stick the condescension back in their faces.
