    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.

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