4 Big 10 teams in preason top 10 at this point...I expect OSU to be moved up a little bit. Michigan is a tad bit high IMO, even with Trey Burke coming back, still don't see UM as a top 5 team. Should be interesting to see exactly how good IU is. Minnesota getting some love in the top 25 is interesting. Wonder where Illinois will be at come preseason. Either way I think next season will be another example of the growth of Big 10 bball as the premier conference for hoops.

In terms of Ohio State, ESPN seems to think Ross will become a star. I think the kid has a long way to go if he wants to be among the Big 10's best players. Showed glimpses but not enough for me to be 'wowed' like Sam Thompson or Shannon Scott. If Lenny carries his NCAA tourney performance into next year, he may end up becoming an elite scoring/defending weapon.
