Mega-conferences with and the lack of a double round robin schedule sucks for basketball.

If we win Saturday the Big Ten race is suddenly up for grabs because I still see a potential loss or two on OSU's schedule.
Angry or not we'll have a crazy environment at Breslin, I like us in this matchup. Purdue doesn't rebound well, Haas is huge but moves about as fast as a beached whale. I think we can throw a lot of bodies at him and run, run, run, until he's gassed. Look for Schilling to get some quality minutes in this game, I think he can match up well defensively. Purdue is an inside/out offense and we can effectively disrupt the inside portion of that.

I despise mega conferences for this reason. Regular season conference titles are meaningless now, just ask Indiana a couple years ago who wasn’t very good yet ducked every good team for multiple matchups. Even football sucks because a few games are dependent on who you might draw on the other side of the conference (like if a west team played rutgers Maryland and Indiana as their crossover games).

I believe SEC used to keep their divisions in place for basketball. I wish we did that as well.

of course, that was a major brain fart on my part. And tiebreakers for seeding won't matter that much since all 3 will get byes for the "play in" and first full round - particularly for the 2 & 3 since they'd presumably play each other in the next round.
