    Default Post NBA Draft Decisions B1G Standings Projection

    Michigan and to a lesser extent Gophers biggest losers after draft decisions. I drop Gophers from #6 to #9 with no Amir.

    1 Michigan State
    2 Maryland
    3 Ohio State
    4 Purdue
    5 Illinois
    6 Wisconsin
    7 Iowa
    8 Michigan
    9 Minnesota
    10 Penn State
    11 Indiana
    12 Rutgers
    13 Nebraska
    14 Northwestern

    As of now it kinda seems like Michigan State, Maryland, and Ohio State as that top tier. Rutgers, Nebraska, and Northwestern as that bottom tier. Then that huge middle group that there are probably a lot of different opinions on. I'd have Purdue lower although they always seem to end up right around there. Also would have Wisconsin down with Penn State and Indiana.

    With all do respect Iowa has no PG after Bohannon's injury, loses Moss and Cook, Wisconsin may start the year with eight eligible scholarship players and whose going to score in Purdue's backcourt? Losing Coffey sucks, but I don't think we're hurting as bad as them

    Sparty duh
    Maryland probably choke and underachieve
    OSU probably overachieve
    Michigan still alot of good pieces
    Illini play hard, here by default I guess
    PSU getting Lamar back is huge
    Minny interesting pieces, see how they fit
    IU, lot of individual talent,
    Wisc Almost as many walk-ons as scholarship players
    Purdue no straw to stir the drink
    Iowa worst off season ever
    Nebraska Freddy is wheeling and dealing
    Rutgers
    NW

    I'm not committing till I see how the new Gophers do in the HP Pro-Am.....

    Or until I see who else Richard can recruit.

    Yeah I’m not sure why Wisconsin should be ranked ahead of Minnesota at this point. They lost their only above average player and still have four (I think) scholarships open. That team has the potential of being a dumpster fire. Reuvers will need to have a Kaminsky-like transformation for them to reach the bubble.

    Man, this is a very underwhelming big ten on paper. Iowa at #7? Who's going to bring the ball up? Connor? Yikes. Wisconsin at 6 is fair, but I don't think they'll be a tournament team. I know everyone loves Painter, but Purdue loses a lot, again, and I didn't see a ton coming off their bench that would inspire confidence in being a top 4 team.

    I think Penn St will finish higher with the return of Stevens and they return a good chunk of their core. I know they lost Bolton, but they return Watkins and Stevens.

    Right now this looks like a 5 bid league at best.

    I don't see Wisconsin nearly as high as you do. Iowa is too high as well.

    Here's how I see it:

    1 Michigan State
    2 Maryland
    3 Ohio State
    (Significant Drop-off)
    4 Illinois
    5 Purdue
    6 Penn State
    7 Indiana
    8 Iowa
    9 Michigan
    10 Wisconsin
    11 Minnesota
    (another cliff sized drop-off)
    12 Rutgers
    13 Nebraska
    14 Northwestern

    Whisky will have a post-Happ letdown.
    Illinois will continue to develop into a top tier team.
    Indiana will rise above expectations with their assembled talent.
    PSU will ride their upper classmen to an above .500 record.
    Iowa will fall flat.
    Purdue I'm just giving the benefit of doubt.
    Michigan I have about even with Minnesota.

    Short of pulling off a Transfer SF/Wing who can shoot and defend or Ihnen surprising with a Gabe-like Freshman season, I'd say we are heading for the NIT unless Oturu develops into NBA draftee level talent in his Sophmore season.

    I feel pretty comfortable with my top 5, though I think Illinois got the short end of the stick with the conference schedule. I have Illini's Big Ten schedule as toughest in the conference.

    6 through 11, one could make a case for any of those teams, despite key personnel losses for all of 'em.

    I know I have some maroon colored glasses on, but I still think the Gophers are a top 6 team in the Big 10 this year. I also thought that last year, but I thought Carr would be eligible. I think this team will be signficantly different in how we run our offense. Defense will be something that will also only get better with Jeter involved on that end.

    I agree with you about PSU. They seem to be one of the teams least damaged by attrition. To my knowledge, they lost only Josh Reaves. If Iowa and Wisconsin do end up in the top half of the conference, their coaches will have done a tremendous job.

    If Pitino can land another capable player in the next month, I'm not so pessimistic about this team's chances. Maybe having a ball dominant player like Coffey who feels he's the star of the team isn't the best prescription for a roster with a lot of new faces.

    Penn State lost Rasir Bolton. If he hadn't transferred (to Iowa State), likely would've had Nitts about #8.

    Still have more things that can happen in the offseason, rankings can change, will continue with the weekly Friday rankings.
