MSU is ahead of us in the standings while Wisky is tied, and we beat them so we have the H2H advantage over them. They also still have to go to OSU which is most likely a loss, host Illinois which could be trouble, and to Iowa which could be trouble, and they're not as good as MSU IMO so they have a larger potential to lose after this game.

MSU has some tough games as well, @ Purdue and @ Indiana, but OSU is at home, and they have been very hot of late, so I imagine them winning more games from here on out.

Also I'm a bigger fan of Wisco than MSU, so go Wisco.

No politics and whatnot, but there are only so many hypothetical primary scenarios you can watch people make up on CNN. I'll take a Big Ten game as an excuse to change the channel.

Granted, Wisconisn is looking like the team Michigan beat a while back, but MSU is steamrolling at this point in the season.  I see them making the Big Ten Tournament final and possibly winning it (I don' t doubt they can beat OSU again, they matchup well against them).  Izzo has them playing very well now and come NCAA tourney time, this team has the ability to do damage.  I hate writing all of that but damn they're looking good.  But, Go Blue.

MSU is rolling, but don't be surprised if they stumble in the BTT.  Izzo has never made the conference tourney a point of emphasis and his record in it is surprisingly average.  Every year they seem to get upset by an also-ran.

Sparty handled them rather easily...if  they go into Purdont and get a win they could be screaming into march madness as a really hot team.

and also Sneare from FSU just did it again to Va Tech.....clutch 3 to win it for the Noles.
