There is a lot going on in the world of Big Ten sports. And, my email inbox reflects that.
If you’re on Twitter or Facebook, you can vote in our ongoing series of Big Ten social media polls for our weekday show #BTNLive. On tonight’s episode of #BTNLive at 6 p.m. ET, our experts discuss this question: Who has a better chance of winning tonight – Michigan or Michigan State?
Michigan has strolled into the Sweet 16 with nary a challenge, beating Wofford and Texas by a combined 31 points. The level of difficulty ramps up considerably tonight as the Wolverines take on Tennessee in Indianapolis. Casual fans may look at the seed matchup – a 2-seed against an 11-seed – and conclude that this will be a cakewalk for Michigan, but that’s nowhere near the truth.
Hello, Sweet 16! The first three rounds of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament are in the books. Three Big Ten teams remain in the field as Michigan, Michigan State and Wisconsin will attempt to stamp their ticket to the Final Four in Arlington, Texas.
It’s interesting to think about the possibility of a Michigan State vs. Michigan national championship game in AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The way both teams are playing and the way the bracket is set up, it’s a possibility.
