    At first I lol'd. Then I looked at the standings and that cake remaining schedule and 2nd to 4th place seems very possible. If Iowa loses tonight they have a favorable position given that schedule

    Indiana sucks again. I wonder how long Crean is going to last this time around.

    It's actually still possible for Nebraska to win the Big Ten. That is very unlikely, but I agree that 2-4 is real possibility.

    shows how much uneven scheduling can affect conference races. Played Iowa, MSU, Wisc, and Minnesota only once.

    The only tough game is the last one. And it is senior day. Go Miles.

    Which is why 10 teams seems to be a nice number. Double round robin makes for a fair regular season champ.
