Big Ten Geeks: Season Preview Back & Forth, Part II

We resume our season preview back-and-forth, with Mike answering Josh’s question about Wisconsin–is this team becoming the Atlanta Braves of college basketball? Always a good team, always in the postseason, but never a real threat to win it all? (Part one can be found here.) Mike: It feels that way, doesn’t it? Most programs would kill to have the kind of consistent success enjoyed in Madison, but style-of-play complaints end up putting the Badgers under the microscope. Therefore, any time Wisconsin doesn’t get as far in the NCAA tournament as it should, the result is used as validation of the

BTN.com's Big Ten hoops mock draft results

The Big Ten men’s basketball season officially tips off Friday night. Before the ball goes into the air, the BTN.com team thought it would be fun to hold a Big Ten mock draft. Our draft consisted of five teams and six rounds, and we all selected a starting 5 and one “reserve,” which could be any player. Here are some specifics before getting to the teams. The draft included BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart, BTN.com senior editor Brent Yarina, BTN.com editor Sean Merriman, BTN.com video operations coordinator Wesley White and Big Ten Geeks writer Josh Reed.

Toughest venue? Best uniform? See what B1G stars say

The city of Chicago was filled with college basketball’s best on Thursday as the top players and coaches from around the Big Ten gathered at the annual Big Ten Media Day. It was a chance to ask some out-of-the-norm questions and find out who really are the best personalities around the Big Ten. I conducted a Big Ten poll, asking one player from every team a series of five questions. See what they had to say here in this post. Editors note: Player responses are anonymous. Players could not use their teammates/stadium/city/uniform/coach in their answers. [ More: Hoosiers reload with

Watch all the Big Ten men's coaches speak

Here are the podium press conference sessions from all 12 Big Ten men’s basketball coaches. Indiana’s Tom Crean: “We have a lot to learn. I think the biggest thing we’re trying to get accomplished right now is to get our team to understand — this team to understand what it takes to practice at a championship level and showing the standards of last year, not necessarily who it was, but how it was done, I think is the most important thing.” Illinois’ John Groce: “We want to play faster this year. Have we built ourselves for more speed? Yes. Will

How does Michigan fill those slots?

Michigan lost key players in Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway, Jr., from a team that reached the national title game. But this edition of the Wolverines looks formidable even though it has a combined 33 points to replace with Burke and Hardaway gone. A key guy: Glenn Robinson III. “Really, last year he was not an inside player at all,” said John Beilein.” So he’s been a perimeter the whole time. I think the biggest difference is what I just alluded to. There’s 80 more minutes and there’s a good 20 to 30 shots, scoring opportunities that Trey and Tim

Harris, MSU top Big Ten preseason lists

Michigan State has been chosen as the unanimous Big Ten favorite heading into the 2013-14 men’s basketball season as voted on by a panel of conference media. The media also tabbed Spartan sophomore Gary Harris as the Preseason Player of the Year. Michigan and Ohio State were selected to finish second and third, respectively. Harris led a six-member preseason All-Big Ten team, as the media vote resulted in additional honorees due to a tie. He was joined on the team by the Wolverines’ Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III, Michigan State’s Adreian Payne, the Buckeyes’ Aaron Craft and Penn State’s
