Big Ten Geeks: It's a thin line this year

Michigan clinched at least a share of the Big Ten title this weekend, as it took care of business against Minnesota at home while Michigan State was upset by Illinois in East Lansing. Michigan mostly let Minnesota hang around until the last couple of minutes until it flipped the #WinTheGame switch. For once, Michigan’s defense showed up, as it held the opponent to under a point per possession for the first time since the first week of February. Nik Stauskas, Caris LeVert, and Glenn Robinson III once again powered the offense, combining for 46 points on 36 shots. For Minnesota,

Survey: Which Big Ten coach 'works' the refs the best?

“Working” officials is an art form. Some coaches are masters at knowing just the right buttons to push over the course of a game to the point where—Who knows?—maybe they can get a key call in their favor. I asked several media members who cover the Big Ten which coach they felt was best at “working” officials.

As you can see from the photo above, Tom Izzo is no stranger to climbing a ladder and cutting down the net. That being the case, Werner Ladder decided to use the legendary Michigan State coach as a spokesman for its new ladder. “There’s so much room up here,” Izzo said about the top of the ladder, “I feel like dancing.” [ MORE: Izzo rides Zamboni in Big Ten hockey promotion ] And, so he dances.
