Go ahead and make assumptions about kids leaving and staying.
1. Ohio State (sans Sullinger)
2. Michigan State
12. Penn State
If Sullinger leaves, I don't see OSU winning the league, they have no recruits coming in and they'd be losing him and Buford and who knows about Thomas
I could see MSU and Indiana sharing the title
I want to see the schedule first. We are due a fleabag schedule like UM had. We've gotten dicked on that way too many times.
Not going to Madison allowed scUM a share.

Yeah, I originally had us ahead at #1, but I think we all underestimate the loss of Green.
I think Indiana will be the favorite. I think we finish top 3. After that no idea.
I don't give a fu@# about the rest.
UM fan and certain Detroit "media" feel UM is a Final Four contender next season.......
No...I'm not kidding....
Yeah we should get a team like Wisconsin/Indiana/OSU only once
does caputo really count as media?
Until Zeller and Burke make up their minds, impossible to say. Assuming both are back and Sullinger and Thomas are gone....
6. Ohio State
11. Penn State
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
We've been due a fleabag schedule for about 10 years. Don't hold your breath.
Michigan (assuming they dont have an easy schedule again)
On a side note anyone know who Wisky's point guard will be next year?

Only from a leadership standpoint. I fully expect the freshmen to make the typical sophomore "jump" while the upperclassmen continue to improve. Of course there is this year's recruiting class as well- especially Harris.
The RCMB...is one of the most awful, alarming, inappropriate, disgusting, and offensive msg boards in the history of the internet.
For the moment, I see it as:
2. Michigan State
3. Ohio State
12. Penn State
I usually avoid these types of threads, but UM at 7 is laughable.
OSU loses Buford and Sullinger so write them out of the top 3. UM 7th? I don't think so. MSU 2nd is solid although leadership will be a problem early on.
Without Burke, Novak, Smowtasbchz, and that other annoying senior, i think UM at 7 is pretty reasonable. They're counting on a freshman (giggle), Morgan (lol), and Hardaway (ROFL)? It's a guess who's going and leaving, but i've got it as:
1. Ohio St. (plenty on that bench even if Thomas goes)
2. Indiana (still have to learn to play defense, but best offensive team in the B10 in several years)
11. Penn St.
Some real dogfights between #5 and #10. All those teams will be pretty even. I put Michigan at 5 on the hedge bet that Burke might stay. With him they're 3, without him they're 7.

In response to Wisconsin's point guard situation, George Marshall, a redshirt freshman, has the inside track. Gasser can play point, and Traevon Jackson (Jimmy Jackson's kid) will vie for playing time. Marshall has had a very productive year from a red shirt standpoint, so there are high hopes for him right now.

Indiana and MSU...could be a 1 loss year for both in the B1G - each 1 loss coming to the other.
Don't agree with OSU, especially if Thomas goes, they'd lose him, Sullinger and Buford and they have no recruits coming in. They'd have Craft, Smith,Scott,Ravenel,and Williams with no one on the bench
This is the Big Ten for cryin out loud
Most likely our one-plays will be the same, just in the other teams buildings. Next year should be the 2nd of the the two year cycle.
MSU should play Ill, Northwestern, @Iowa and @PSU and everyone else twice.

If Ohio St. finishes as low as 6th i'll retire from betting and analyzing. Ain't gonna happen. A lineup of Craft, Scott, Smith, Thompson, and Ravanel with Williams off the bench is the 2nd best lineup in the conference. That's not even taking into account their freshman class or the possibility of Thomas staying another year. I suppose if Smith's stock is so high that HE also goes early, they could slip down to 3rd or 4th at worst.
You're forgetting Thompson, who is basically J-Rich in waiting.
