Mid-Season Big Ten Predictions

We are about half-way through the year, and since I did a preseason prediction, I thought I'd do a mid-season one.

Here were the preseason predictions:


1. Michigan State 15-3
2. Purdue 14-4
3. Ohio State 12-6
4. Michigan 12-6
5. Minnesota 11-7
6. Illinois 11-7
7. Wisconsin 9-9
8. Northwestern 6-12
9. Indiana 4-14
10. Penn State 4-14
11. Iowa 1-17

Here are the new predictions and changes:

1. Michigan State 15-3- This team will perform well. In my mind they are still the best team in the Big Ten.
2. Purdue 15-3- A close second to the Spartans.
3. Wisconsin 13-5- This team made the biggest jump of all the teams. They are experienced, and Bo Ryan could easily lead them to another Big 10 championship.
4. Minnesota 11-7- This will be a team to watch for during tourney time.
5. Illinois 10-8
6. Ohio State 10-8- So far this team has been very dissapointing to me, yes, they did lose their best player, but he's back, and they still lost one of their two games.
7. Michigan 9-9
8. Northwestern 6-12- They were ranked for the first time, in what? 60 years? They went down quickly after that.
9. Indiana 6-12- This team will lose some their not supposed to, and win some. I think at home Indiana will always give the other team a run for their money.
10. Penn State 3-15- I really don't know for sure where this team stands.
11. Iowa 1-17- They will win one. Right now it's looking gloomy, but they will win one, i just don't know against who right now.

Week 5 Final Four Prediction

                                                                                          

                                      

                                                      


People will call me crazy for still predicting Villanova after they lost to Temple. But, they are a young team, but strong led by Scottie Reynolds. This is who i predicted at the beginning at the beginning of the year and I'm going to stick with them.

Here is my "Sweet Sixteen", filled with the 16 teams i think will be left in the tournament after two rounds. This is not based on rankings purely based on how the team has done and how strong their players have been.

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.
11.
12.
13.
14.
15.
16.


Clemson is here because i still think they're a good team and i had them in the Elite Eight in Week 1. They are a talented bunch and look for them to make a run towards the Elite Eight.

Big Ten Predictions

The Big Ten is a Power Conference this year headed by Michigan State and Purude.
These rankings are on how i feel the Big Ten will play out after the year is over.

1. Michigan State 15-3- Tom Izzo has all kinds of weapons that could possibly lead them to another title run.

2. Purdue 14-4- Didn't lose much and gained some eventually they'll get themselves into a final four.

3. Ohio State 12-6- Sleeper team of the year for this conference and the tournament, they have good, athletic players and a great coach.

4. Michigan 12-6- We arrive to the unsettled part of the conference, look to see many close games and upsets this year.

5. Minnesota 11-7

6. Illinois 11-7

7. Wisconsin 9-9

8. Northwestern 6-12

9. Indiana 4-14

10. Penn State 4-14

11. Iowa 1-17

This will be an interesting year in the Big Ten with big games and big upsets, look for these rankings to change. The Big Ten is extremely equal from rankings 3 to 7 that it is almost impossible to predict.
I'm ready for another exciting year!
