Lindy's Sports put 3 Big Ten men's hoops teams in top 6

Lindy's Preview Magazine

Is it November yet? This winter, the Big Ten will boast so much talent on the hardwood that we could be in store for one of the most exciting and memorable conference seasons in recent history. Lindy’s Sports did nothing to temper those expectations, placing three Big Ten teams in the top six of its Lindy’s top 10. That’s Indiana, at No. 2, Michigan, at No. 3, and Ohio State, at No. 6. Not too bad.

All three of those teams figure to spend time ranked in the nation’s top 5 during the 2012-13 season. Some would say that Michigan State will do the same, and it would be hard to argue against it. And then there’s always Bo Ryan’s consistently competitive Badgers. Add it all up, and that’s why the battle for the Big Ten’s top spot should be so exciting.

Here’s another regional cover:

So they are banking on Michigan having a Top 3 year after losing Novak, Smotrycz, among others, and hoping that Mitch McGary lives up to his falling ranking? Nice job Lindy

In my estimation the individual that wrote this article could be so far in the forest ,they can not see the trees. With everything that School Up North, no way are they top 5 candidates !!!! I actually believe it will be Michigan State there instead along with The Ohio State Buckeyes and Indiana. Have a good day. Have Faith. Go Bucks !!!!

Where is Michigan State ranked? If Keith Appling, Adreian Payne, and Derrick Nix can all elevate their play and together fill the shoes of Draymond Green, the Spartans could be very dangerous. Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, and Ohio State are clearly the top four teams in the conference and probably the only teams that will have a legitimate shot at winning the conference title. Right now, I would have to give the edge to the Buckeyes since Aaron Craft is the best point guard in the conference and the best defensive point guard in the country and Deshaun Thomas is one of the best scorers in the conference. If someone can rebound the basketball for that team, Ohio State will be a force to be reckoned with nationally all season long.

Sports writers are elevating Michigan like they elavated Notre Dame football;
and look at Notre Dame now. Maybe Michigan in a couple of years. Indiana, Ohio State, Michigan State and Wisconsin. Michigan???????

Ohio State without Jared Sullinger in the Preseason Top 6 is questionable, but Preseason rankings mean very little.

Hopefully, LaQuinton Ross, Amir Williams and Shannon Scott develop in their sophomore seasons (especially Ross).
