That league is in big trouble. I think it’s going to quickly become the big 4 plus the Big East in basketball.

The Athletic's Brian Bennett has Marquette as a #4 seed, playing Southern Miss in Albany. Miami is the 5 in that bracket, and Purdue is the 1.

He also has North Carolina and Kentucky meeting in the first 4, and has Madison as the last team in (meeting New Mexico in Dayton).

The guy at the Athletic is wrong

After the debacle at Nebraska, no WAY the Rodents are in the dance

And … ain’t no way NC plays UK in first 4

They should have lost to Michigan last night, they’re average.

I could see IU and/or Creighton in the Final Four. Neither are #2 seeds as of today.

It's possible to not sleep on IU...while also recognizing they are not currently a 2 seed.

It's also possible to spark debate without saying ridiculous things.

I think IU has Final Four upside, but they are not in the conversation for a 2. 4-6 right now, but trending up.

I’ve watched a few IU games because my son is a freshman there. Interesting team. Offense is essentially the dashed last name guys. No bench. No outside game at all. I truly believe on a neutral court Marquette could hold their own against them.

I believe MU woulde be a slight favorite.

Winning a conference road game with two starters out and a replacement starter limited due to injury.   OK.

My daughter is a freshman at IU so I’ve adopted them as my second team. Going to IU vs Illinois next weekend in Bloomington. I’ve watched a decent amount of their games this year. Jackson-Davis can flat out play - a super star college player. Great rebounder. A game between MU and IU would be really good.

TJD and Hood-Schifino combined for 49 of IU's points in their win at Michigan.    A 6'7 point guard.    TJD is averaging 20 and 11 for the season, 28 and 16 in the last few weeks.    The rest are role players who can get hot occasionally.  Almost all in the switchable category, size wise.  They switch 4, usually leaving TJD to guard the post.       If Thompson and Johnson are healthy by tourney time, IU is a final 4 candidate.     The last odds I saw had them at 40-1, just like MU.

Thank you!

I said a week ago that Big Ten fans think the Bucks would finish in the middle of the Big 10.

I rest my case.

My perception is that there is a pretty decent size gap on the S-Curve between the 4 seeds and the 5 seeds. Maybe others would disagree, but I think there is a pretty clear top 16 at the moment and a bit of mess behind them. I think it would take a pretty bad finish for us to fall into 5-seed territory.

When I wrote this, I didn't count Indiana in my top 16. I still think they are on the outside, but they are bridging that gap between the 4 and 5 seeds IMHO. 17 teams competing for 16 protected seeds.

I agree with the idea that IU is underrated, many of their losses was during a difficult stretch of B10 play where they had multiple rotation players out, they’re probably the second best team in the league.  Probably about a 3-4 fave on a neutral court against MU.

Without Thompson or Johnson, I think MU wins on a neutral floor.   With Thompson and Johnson both playing at their best, I think IU is favored.
