The regular season is over. A B1G regular-season title, the crowning achievement of last year's team, is lost.
But there is still much to play for. My question for the board: What result would satisfy you for this year's team? Keep in mind both its preseason expectations and the incredible strength of the conference. Would a B1G tournament win make the season a success? A sweet 16 berth? Elite 8?
The question is, what achievement will make you say "Awesome, the rest is just gravy?"
As it happens, this year reminds me of another season when a loaded Michigan basketball team missed out on a conference championship. They lost twice to a dynamic Big Ten club stocked with NBA talent. But then, in the Final Four, they played them again...
We lost today. We'll see them again. Bring it.
