    I'll honestly be pretty happy if we win this year. Most of the "toss up" games have an ACC home team and that's usually what wins the tournament.

    I don't know. I'm looking it over and seeing 7-5. Northwestern/Ga Tech might be the big swing game.

    I really like Michigan, Michigan State and Purdue in their matchups.

    Likewise, I think Wisconsin, Nebraska and Minnesota are toast.

    Who do you have winning and losing right now? Why is Minny toast at home?

    Because Minnesota isn't very good, and Virginia Tech is.

    I've got Purdue, Northwestern, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio State, Indiana and Michigan State winning on the big 10 side, and Clemson, BC, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and UNC winning on the ACC side.

    I think Northwestern, Indiana, Ohio State and Illinois are all pretty touch and go.

    Also, why didn't they set out a team on each side to avoid the possibility of a tie?

    I don't think it's that big of a deal.

    Really surprised you have Wake Forest winning at Nebraska.

    Wake is really, really bad. Nebraska is not-terrible and playing at home.

    Wake isn't as terrible as they were last year. It would not shock me if Nebraska beat them, but Nebraska is still Nebraska.

    Neither of these teams are very good.

    I've got a 6-6 tie.

    I think Northwestern has a good shot against G.T.
    I wouldn't be shocked if the Illini dropped one in College Park.
    Iowa could sneak one out at home against Clemson.
    Minnesota is pretty bad but they could get a win at home against a V.T.

    I feel pretty strongly about Purdue, Michigan, Ohio State, Indiana, and Michigan State getting wins. That's 5 for the Big Ten.

    I think B.C. and UNC should win easily. 2 for the ACC.

    5-2 Big Ten with 4 toss ups which I'll predict as going 3-1 ACC.

    I'm surprised you guys are so much more confident about IU's chances than I am.

    Maryland is pretty damn horrible. They might be the worst team in the ACC this season.

    Speaking of the Big Ten as a whole, Minnesota lost Trevor Mbakwe to a torn ACL. That's going to be huge, they'll be pretty bad now.

    I don't know how it's going to shake out, but I know it will end up being a 6-6 tie.

    I echo TJ--I'm not nearly as confident in IU winning at NC State as the rest of you. That game is a total toss up for me.

    I actually like having the same number of teams, since that means the ACC team with the worst record last year has to play too.

    I call Big Ten...8-4!

    IU's got a decent shot. OSU will not beat the Dukies. No way UNC looses. Probably a 6-6 split.

    "But, first, let us now praise famous moments, because something happened Tuesday night in Indianapolis that you can watch a lifetime’s worth of professional basketball and never see again. There was a brief, and very decisive, and altogether unprecedented, outburst of genuine officiating, and it was directed at the best player in the world, and that, my dear young person, simply is not done."

    Try espn3.com. Or, if you have a gold Xbox live account, you can go to the ESPN app and watch it there.

    That stinks. As an Ind. State fan I was hoping they would have a good season to make the loss look beter later on. I hope he has a full recovery and the rest of the team is able to fill that big hole.

    I think both UNC and Duke have a chance to lose, and Duke and Purdue are my favorite teams. I think that both of these two games will be really close and decided by a couple of plays near the end of the game. Also Harrison Barnes is a hurt and UNC is coming of a lose to UNLV.

    Ken Pomery runs the numbers, says the Big Ten wins it 7-5, 69% chance the Big Ten wins it.

    Kenpom's formula really loves IU he has us a top 20 team in the country right now. So I take everything from him with a grain of salt.
