Big Ten

January 7, 2014
By

For as maligned as the Big Ten was for their football play this past season, that is how highly ranked they are in basketball.  Every school had a very successful pre-season record, and the Big Ten race should be a real donnybrook.  Take Michigan State, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio State, and just about every other squad and you cannot go into any game and say it will be easy.  After the war of the regular season, they will then have to survive the season concluding tourney before the NCAA Tourney even begins.  It makes no sense basketball wise to play these tourneys after a grueling regular season race, but we all know it is strictly for money and not for the benefit of the players.  With the new foul rule, the Big Ten may have to adhere to basketball this season and not football on a wooden floor.  This might benefit the Big Ten schools during the tourney because in the past they always had to adjust to different refereeing in the tourney, and most teams were so tired they had trouble playing those six games to win the title.  Anyway, it should make for a very interesting Big Ten season for all of us.
