Surprised so many people are this optimistic at our chances in the tourny. Every prediction so far had us in the championship game or winning lol

Something tells me if there was real money on the line that some of those predictions would look a little different.  I think most of the predictions further below look more realistic by comparison.

I picked OSU to make it to the championship, however, I would not be one bit surprised to see Nebraska beat them. Neb looks like a legit threat to the Big Ten championship (who thought anyone would ever say that in the near future). I do think, though, they're a much different team away from home as evidenced by their 8-1 conf home record, and 3-6 road record.

I would definitely put money on OSU making the championship, even if not very much :)

Hello_Heisman's picture

Fido - you'd better throw in a score prediction for the championship game because you and I have the exact same picks for every game in the tournament.  Either we both share a similar level of brilliance or we simply have no faith in MSU or OSU making a run this year.  I'm in the latter camp, especially with respect to MSU.  They're a disaster at the moment, and I still can't figure out why.  One of the 2 biggest disappointments in college basketball this year (Kentucky being the other).

Normally I wouldn't take the Spartans because it seems every year they fall against some team they shouldn't. That and I think Izzo doesn't really make this tourney a top priority. But the loss to OSU changed his thinking I'm guessing. So I'm picking MSU.
