We're down to the sweet sixteen now but its safe to say that when the field was at 64 most fans became Big Ten fans and wanted to see other B1G teams excel and win. As it stands now the Big Ten has four teams (Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State and Indiana) in the sweet sixteen. If you were put in a position where you could pick one other team to go to Atlanta with Michigan State, who would you choose and why?
Not those god-damned Hoosiers, thats for damn sure.
tOSU or IU. I wouldn't care which of the two, they're not u of m.

OSU. They've are my 2nd favorite B1G program, but it's really a very distance 2nd. Really, really distance. As in I really don't care, but there's no bitterness about it if they do go 2nd favorite.
Indiana, only team that would root for Mich. St. In semis
Write in: Northwestern, because who doesn't love those little guys!
What are YOUR thoughts?
why can't all four be in Atlanta?
If the shoe was on the other foot, I'm not taking Michigan for obvious reasons. As for Michigan State or Indiana, I'd pick MSU because I know we match up well based on how the teams played this year and MSU fans know how to act like they've been there before. This is contrary to a program that is try to get back there in Indiana and Michigan who is looking for an identity in the post season after reaching their first sweet 16 since 94'. Lastly, I can stomach losing to MSU in the final four versus potentially losing to Indiana or Michigan which might be the biggest punch in the stomach if we played scUM in the title game.
OSU. The least of three evils.
IU. fuck Michigan, and if Osu doesn't make it that means a marginal zona or a mid major.
Of course, I have shit loads of money on Osu coming out of LA.
As long as MSU keeps winning, I'll pull for both Indiana and Ohio State. If we bow out, I want them to lose as well.
I live in Ohio. OSU fans have proven to be a constant nuisance. The only other team I can stomach is IU and that's in spite of Zeller and Crean's recent antics.
Sparty is our mascot, we are Spartans.
I'm a spiteful, vindictive person. If MSU can't go, nobody goes.
Because Brady Hoke is fat.
Distance second? Minus well say you could care less.
i want to watch IU players cry after a loss in the national champ game
i only care about spartans --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqsAJQc-NCY
Indiana. That means that we play Wichita State or La Salle in the Final Four if we went. Although I think it would be the greatest thing ever if we met UofM in the Championship game and beat there ass. If that happened we literally won the rivalry, cancel the series after that because we just earned bragging rights forever.
Michigan State University is the university of Michigan
I keep forgetting that UM is still in the tournament.
tOSU, the enemy of my enemy is my friend.
I certainly will not root for scUM. As others have mentioned, if OSU didn't make it, then that would mean we'd have a favorable FF matchup. So by the "what's the best path for a possible MSU championship" evaluation, I'd say IU.
If I evaluate based only on how annoying I find each school, I'd pick OSU.
I've thought about this more than once this season......it would be the highest pressure game ever since the winner would have a nearly eternal trump card.
iU. Helps my pool the most....
Spartans ...committed to bring Paul Bunyan home in 2013.
I like OSU's chances, especially if they get to keep playing 8 against 5.
Michigan, and I want to see them in the champ game. Then we will let our boys tear them a new one.
