So two top 5 teams will meet at Breslin for the first time ever...
@BCastOZone: According to @rustymillerap, three of the top 7 teams in AP Poll are from the B1G: Indiana (1), MSU (4), Michigan (7).

Okay, forget that shit. I know rankings don't matter in February, but I still don't think this team gets enough credit.
We need to finish very strong.
Any chance we have of bumping "forks down" out of the Indy regional start tomorrow.
It really doesn't matter. I feel confident that we can beat anyone in the tournament.
we will know whether were a top five team after our next 3 games.....lets go to work
To die in ann arbor is redundant
So who is #3? Florida or Gonzaga?
I know, but I really expected a higher ranking than 4. This team is among the best in the nation and deserves to be recognized. However I will withdraw any further protest, as this stuff really honestly doesn't matter. That is all.
Who in the hell were the two voters who gave Gonzaga first place votes?
Win these next three, here comes NUMBA ONE - NUMBA ONE
tRCMB - Where MSU fans eat their own.
Maybe not tomorrow, but if we win the BT outright we do. I'm wondering what our chances are at #1 in the polls next week. A Miami loss sure would have been nice yesterday...
Link to actual poll?
Gonzaga at 3 and Butler at 15 continue to be overrated.
2 people gave Gonzaga first place votes in last week's poll. I'm guessing that's what he's looking at.
EDIT: Nevermind, the link is above.

I don't get too caught up in rankings, and many weeks it doesn't make sense, but we are usually the highest rated team with that number of losses consistently.
hoke- to alter or manipulate so as to give a deceptively or superficially improved quality or value.
The same team that lost to the Illini....
Haters gonna hate!
Indiana is guilty as well
I don't get the animosity? You can't make a good case for us to be 1 or 2. Indiana and Miami both have better records and have beaten us head to head. Gonzaga is a little questionable but it's hard to argue with their record.
At any point in the season I don't think it matters whether we're 3 or 4.
I reserve the right to edit this post if we win on Tuesday.
Emphasis on "can" on any given day - which doesn't necessarily mean "will" of course. Lots of talent in the Big Ten this year.
Like I said, I think a total ass kicking of Michigan at home merits a bigger bump, but upon further review, you're absolutely right. Not worth getting my panties up in a bunch.
Anybody imagine we'd be in the top five this season? Knew the talent was there, but with Green gone and the conference so strong it was hard to see it happening.
REALLY suprised we leapfrogged Floriday, but I'll take it. Goddam we got some Mo goin', can't wait to see us stomp the Hoosiers..
There is romance in all of us
More importantly, we've fallen from 1B to 2 in the latest Dan Dakich Index
We jumped from 8th all the way to 4th. That's quite a feat in one week. Damn too bad Clemson focked up like that..we'd been right on The Zags' asses and we all know what we think of their rating..
How do people get voting privileges? This ballot is just terrible.
MSU destroys UM. Vote MSU 9 UM 5 (Same overall record)
Wisconsin destroys OSU. Vote UW 24 OSU 13 (18-8, 18-7)
