    The talking heads just can’t enough of promoting the Big Ten as the best bball conference this year.

    Certainly the B1G is overvalued this year. IU getting ranked just because they are 5-3 in league is ridonculous considering their OOC schedule.

    I don't see any way 15-3 (27-4 overall) wouldn't be a 1 seed this season. No way. Now, I also don't see any way we skate through the next 11 games at 10-1, either. But, just saying.

    And yeah, we're not getting into the Tournament at 17-14 (5-13), either, barring getting to the BE Tournament champ game, I guess.

    That tool seems busted.

    The Big Ten is overrated all the time in just about every sport.

    But this year, for basketball .... not overrated at all. Outside of the 2017 Big 12, I believe it's the most difficult conference in the last decade, per Pom.

    True. But what they're saying isn't wrong.

    Yeah, I think 8-10 likely would be enough to get the Dawgs in the tournament. I’d feel completely safe with 9-9.

    You can quote your stats all you want, they are still overvalued.

    We probably get into the tournament at 8 - 10. I would definitely be disappointed with the season if that were to transpire, barring an injury or something of the like.

    To end up 8-10 we would have to go 4-7 the rest of the way.

    Which, to me, would be disappointing even if we made the tournament. I just don't see making the tournament as enough for this squad.

    I still believe we get to 21 wins regular season and then win two in the big east tourney and end up as a six seed, which considering the start of year expectations i had that is alright by me

    11-7 in the BE for third place at 23-8. They hit their stride at the right time and take the whole damn thing in NYC, getting a two seed in the tournament in the Midwest.

    Waiter....I'll have what he's having.

    At this point the way things are going (so much parity in the league not named Seton Hall) I'd be fine with 9-9 and we get in easily. I'm hoping for 10-8.

    4-3 with 6 home games left, none of which are against the league’s best team and 5 of which are against the bottom half of the league. Will be favored by 5+ in all 6 remaining home games.

    9-9 would be a significant disappointment, even with the way the last 2 weeks have gone. 10-8 would be fine, but even then, that’d be underperforming vs current projections.

    That’s where my head was. The BE tourney championship was probably a stretch. They’ll have played a lot of road games following Georgetown. I like it.

    I'll say this, I'm always against a 4-5 seed...rather be a 3 or 6 so as to not have to see the 1 in the sweet 16. But this year...is there anyone to fear if we were to fall on the four line or five line?

    We've shown we are one of the few that matchup well with Baylor, Duke has its flaws, Gonzaga is very good, but great? Not sure. SDSU? I like them and I love watching them, but they don't scare me.

    Getting ahead of myself but if we can nail down 10-8 that's 22-9 overall. Nab one BET win and that's 23-10 with a Kenpom and NET most likely around 2oish. I think that's a very realistic goal without allowing yourself to be disappointed.

    Eh, I don't mind the #4 as much. Win two and get 5-6 days to prepare for a #1 seed. Then you are playing on house money and all the pressure is on the #1.

    Shooters shoot!

    Yeah, I think it is about matchups (Are Gonzaga and SDSU 1 seeds?). Honestly, it doesn't matter as long as we are clicking and healthy (no more injuries) by the end of the season. By necessity, if we are clicking there is no way we are worse than a six seed.

    I can't see either losing before the end of the year and the conference tournaments. So by default I think they'll be a 1.

    My guess is this-10-8 gets us at worst a 5

    9-9 probably a 6 or 7

    11-7 probably a 4

    And that's as far as I'm going to dream.
