Big Ten upsets: Reviewing 12 Big Ten stunners

If there is a theme to this Big Ten season, it would be “expect the unexpected.” Down is up … up is down … in is out … out is in. You get the idea. Each week is like a roller-coaster, as upsets seemingly have become the norm. Heck, we even had one last night, with last-place Illinois winning at Minnesota. Here’s a look at the 12 biggest upsets so far this season, in no particular order. At the bottom, you can vote for your favorite one. Oh, and keep your seat belt fastened—you know more craziness awaits between now

Big Ten Geeks: Checking in on the Freshmen

We’re in the home stretch of conference play, so it feels an appropriate time to check in on the play of the Big Ten’s freshmen. Who has the inside track on freshman of the year? What youngsters are doing more than you realized? Let’s find out. The following table lists the conference-only numbers for every Big Ten freshman that is playing regular minutes (Minute Percentage > 30), is consuming at least a few possessions (Possession Percentage >14), and is at least somewhat efficient (Offensive Rating >96). These are the youngsters that are truly contributing as first-year players, and they are

Dienhart: The future of Big Ten hoops schedules

I long for the days when every Big Ten school played twice every season. It was a symmetrical schedule that crowned a true champ in a neat and tidy 18-game league schedule. The only thing missing was a bow on top. That balance got tossed out the window when Penn State joined the league. And Nebraska’s arrival added to the imbalance to where Big Ten schools now play just seven teams twice and four others once. As you can imagine, that can make for some unbalanced and unfair schedules in the pursuit of a conference title. Now, with Rutgers and

Ranking the games: No surprise at No. 1 this week

The spotlight this week swings on Ann Arbor, where Michigan will play host to Michigan State in a battle between Big Ten front-runners this weekend. Each squad is 10-3 in league action. Wisconsin and Iowa are right behind the Wolverines and Spartans. And, ironically, the Badgers and Hawkeyes meet in a big game in Iowa City this week. Here’s a look at the 10 games this week.

Merriman: My Mount Rushmore of B1G hoops players

Who would make your Mount Rushmore of Big Ten basketball players? That has been a common question asked after four-time NBA MVP LeBron James selected Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Oscar Robertson. The same question can be posed to Big Ten fans. With so many good options, it is tough to choose just four top players in Big Ten basketball history. With that said, we wanted to make it a little easier for you. In honor of Presidents Day, here is my team-by-team breakdown of who would make Mount Rushmore. Big Ten Mount Rushmore (All Time) Magic Johnson,

Big Ten Geeks: I can see for Miles

Indiana’s season reached a new low in Saturday’s drubbing at Purdue. The Boilermakers busted the game open after intermission, and the one thing that had been a relative constant for the Hoosiers–a solid defense–went by the wayside. To be fair, some of this was just Purdue having a fantastic afternoon from the perimeter (10-for-18 on threes), but Indiana didn’t offer much resistance either. Even more impressive for the Boilermakers was that this outburst came largely without contributions from A.J. Hammons, who scored just five points and was mostly invisible on the floor (at least as invisible as a man that
