Resume wise, I think Michigan really wants Purdue to beat Ohio State on Thursday and Iowa to make a little run. Good chance to bag a couple of Q1 wins if they can get into the top 30 of the NET (Iowa currently at 34, Purdue at 33).
Anybody need to win a game or two to sneak into NCAAT?
Purdue, Indiana and Rutgers would all probably sleep a lot sounded if they can bag a Q1 win in Indianapolis.
Rutgers?!?! I thought they would be safely in at this point. Interesting
I think they are in (I wrote by NCAA Tourney Bible preview for them – preorder it!) but they are probably on the 9/10ish line right now?
Purdue needs to make a splash to get in (i.e. multiple wins). Indiana and Rutgers are more about landing the aircraft smoothly.
