Dienhart: Q&A with CBS Sports bracketologist Palm

I caught up with Jerry Palm today to discuss the Big Ten and the NCAA field. Palm thinks the Big Ten still is in line to get nine bids to the Big Dance—with Iowa, Nebraska and Penn State left out.

But Tubby Smith’s team has responded by winning three straight games, most recently in a stomping of Northwestern at The Barn.
