    yeah, but Wisky and Mich getting 4 seeds is a joke. When you lose to iowa, you are not a good team. BS

    If it's any consolation, good ol' Gottlieb predicts New Mexico State will bounce Indiana in the 4-13 game.

    (After picking ISU over UConn, he officially has moved from "That d**** Gottlieb" to "Good ol' Gottlieb" in a span of 3 weeks )

    I really was getting sick of hearing about Northwestern, Iowa, Minnesota. They had no chance, and I was getting sick of seeing preliminary brackets bumping other teams for 8 big 10 teams. Ridiculous.

    That won't matter when they both lose in the first or second round.

    Re: Glad Big 10 got the amount of Teams they deserved

    Wait, you mean an inferior conference like the Big 12 got as many teams into the tournament as the Big 10, with 2 fewer conference members?? Huh, how about that

    Where were you constantly hearing that Iowa and Minnesota would get in? Northwestern and Illinois were getting talked about for a while, and they should have been. Illinois had a good non-con record and had a few big wins, I think they beat OSU and maybe MSU if I'm not mistaken. Had they not finished the season 2-12 or 2-13, whatever they finished, they would've gone. Nobody talked about them making it for the past 2 weeks, before that, they easily could have had they won some games down the stretch. And for Northwestern, all they had to do was beat Minnesota in the first round of the Big 10 tourny, which they should have, and they would be in.

    So to say that they had no chance at making it is a stretch, they just simply didn't perform down the stretch or do what they had to to make it in.

    Northwestern was the flavor of the week because they have never seen the big dance.

    Minnesota was annoying because I live here, and that's all people talk about.
