    #13 Ohio State.

    How in the world is Ohio State ranked in the top 25 let alone at 13th?

    What a joke. They beat Michigan and NOBODY else all season. They have lost every other meaningful game.

    I hope Wisconsin continues this first half 17 point beatdown.

    Re: #13 Ohio State.

    Just imagine the first year in something like a decade when the Big Ten might be remotely close to being a top three football conference again. It's an out of control media orgasm any time they're even in the conversation for being the best basketball conference.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Because name isn't everything, but it's the most important thing, in NCAA sports polling.

    They are 12th in KenPom and Sagarin too so yeah it's not just the name. They only have one good win but all of their losses have been to top tier teams, with the possible exception of Illinois, although they were highly ranked at the time.

    This. It's one of the first things every Hok fan I've talked to the past two months has told me. They also tell me because they are in such an orgasm-inducing conference, Iowa is a lock for the tournament even though they're something like 4-10 in the league games.

    I guess the committee doesn't consider losses if they're less than five points to other Big 10 teams?

    Re: #13 Ohio State.

    I don't get Ohio state top 15 either. Kentucky being 25 and in the top 25 was baffling to me at the beginning of the week too.
