  1. You accidentally left off that Louisville & Indiana men will play from Indianapolis

  2. I think just as suggestion you add DC for the B1G tournament games so people don't get confused about where they are playing them

    1. If you say a game is being played in Washington, I think people are aware of what that means. I generally go by the AP dateline cities here.


  3. The Big Ten Basketball Tournament in Washington? It's a sign of the times, especially with recent conference expansion & so much money changing hands. From the beginning of the first Big Ten Basketball Tournament, they've alternated between Chicago & Indianapolis. The fact that Washington & New York will be hosting the Big Ten Tournament each of the next 2 years will be unusual to say the least, but they're trying to tap into those big media markets.

    1. Yeah that plus it's to drive fans at Maryland & Rutgers to focus on the B1G Conference

  4. Nessler just confirmed during Arkansas vs. Missouri that he and Raftery will do UCLA vs. Kentucky on Dec. 3rd

  5. Any chance UK vs. UGA will be on CBS on Feb. 18th?

    1. NONE why at this moment would CBS leave the game they already have for that date PLUS they selected that game BEFORE the season tipped off
