Let's see some projections of the 2019-20 Big Ten standings. In the event of a tie for a place in the standings, we go with Big Ten Tournament seed.

We'll revisit this prior to the Big Ten tourney. 5 points for correctly projecting the 1st-place team, 4 for projecting the runner-up, 3 for the 3rd-place team, and 2 for the 4th-place team. All other correct projections receive 1 point. Max point total = 24. Tiebreaker #1 is closest to accurate projection of Gophers place, #2 is number of Gophers Big Ten wins.

I'll start us:

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

What if Bohannon ends up playing? That would definitely bump Iowa up. Anyways...

1) Michigan State (Wins by at least 3 full games)
2) Maryland
3) Ohio State
4) Purdue
5) Illinois
6) Michigan (Toughest team to predict. Even their best incoming freshman left and is now at Kansas. I want to put them lower, but I'm grudgingly sticking them here)
7) Penn State (Dancing for the first time under Pat)
8) Minnesota
9) Indiana
10) Wisconsin
11) Iowa
12) Rutgers
13) Nebraska (Why am I starting to think this team will be better than 13th?)
14) Northwestern

Thought this was worth a bump with 2 weeks remaining. Just skimming it, looks like Rutgers was the team most undervalued (even though they are coming back to the pack lately) and Purdue was most over rated.

Iowa is pretty underrated also. Highest anyone had them was 8, most people had them 12-14.
