Big Ten Tournament question

Submitted by Wendyk5 on March 1st, 2010 at 11:58 AM

Now that we're down to the end of the season, any idea who we play in the first round of the Big Ten tournament next week? I promised my son he could play hooky on Friday if we make it to the quarterfinals, and we could drive to Indianapolis from Chicago. What do you all think about our chances?

Right now we would have the 8/9 matchup with Iowa followed by a game against the #1 seed.

In fact, even if we win one and lose to MSU, I don't think we'll get the 7 seed because I would think NW would have the tie-break. And Indiana and PSU can't catch us... so we'll be in the 8/9 game. Which means a win will get us Ohio State on Friday if OSU beats Illinois in their season finale and wins the league outright.

Why would you subject your son to the disaster that is this year's Michigan basketball team? Instead you should show him highlights of the 1997 football game against Ohio State. Don't punish the boy.

and there were plenty of scalpers on the streets selling tix. I got mine for free from work, so I don't know how much they were going for. I know there were quite a few open seats during the games I attended so I wouldn't think tickets would cost too much.

Considering the Lions are currently loaded with young talent fresh from some great drafts and great off-season moves I'd say the lions will win the superbowl in the next 5 years. So I think the chances of UM winning the b10 tourney are much less.
