Is Tom Crean the most overrated coach in college basketball? Or do I just hate him because of his years at Marquette, where his entire reputation was built on stumbling upon Dwayne Wade? Or is it because he is now all Indiana? And because he is a tanning booth douche who should get about four T's a game for wandering on the court?

Or am I wrong? (Nah, scratch that last question).

Wow Maryland and PU lost. UW is top seed left and should win it.

Northwestern is a funny team.
Sometimes they really suck, sometimes they play like champions

Or we beat them by 30.

Bucky looks like they are starting to get hot at the right time.

Excellent Unified Forum theory, proving the universe revolves around the Isthmus. Except one thing. We are talking Badger ball not Michigan.


It's the B1G Tournament. Michigan just beat #1 ranked Purdue. If Michigan beats the Gophers, and Wisco beats Indiana (Badgers down by 1 point as I write) and then wins the semis. Michigan and Wisconsin meet in the Finals.

OOPS. Down by 3 points now. C'mon Bucky!


And they do meet in the finals.

Selection Sunday here.

I'll go out on a limb and predict 6 or 7 seed. Depends on whether the committee is more impressed by a good tournament or the late season slide

I don't know of anyone, expert or fan, who expected them to do that badly. And Minnesota, who we recently beat by 17, plus beat them at Minnesota earlier in the season, is a 5? Sorry, something is not quite right with their metrics.

I agree
Also Michigan is a 7 seed
Northwestern an 8

Something seems wrong.

I would choose 5 or 6 but guessed 6 or 7 because I expected the committee to punish them for their late season slide. Just not that much.

Don't be surprised if Villanova pays for their mistake.

I've never seen a team miss more lay-ups and tip-ins. Just brutal. It all depends on if Nigel comes to play or implodes again. For a dude who wants to go to the next level, he sure doesn't seem that interested.

It kills me, but VA Tech is just the type of teams that beats WI. Lots of good shooters and they make 3s. VA Tech 75, WI 62.
