Why no love for Wisconsin? Just more excuses why they will fail? All they do is show up every game and play hard. Funny how they don't have a neitzel type that all the media loves but always seems to come up short. Maybe if they had a player like that they would be the favorite.

Wisconsin will be taken out by a hot 3 point shooting team. That is a fact but most teams can't shoot 3's so they have a good system that has produced 26 victories so far this year and 30 last year. Not bad for a team from Wisconsin that for years couldn't win that many in multiple years combined.

What is it, 6 seasons of preseason Big Ten championships for the Spartans and 6 seasons of coming up with nothing by the end of the year. Those paper banners must look good in the rafters Tom Izzo.

Let me be the first to say the 2009 preseason big ten champs will be Michigan State for the umpteenth time in a row. One of these years they may win the Big Ten regular season championship.

Only surprise is if Illinois or Northwestern win it all.

Do we feel a little slighted? Yes, MSU was overrated and yes, Bucky Badger over delivered this year and yes, Bo Ryan has done consistently well but until Mr. Ryan can take Bucky to the Final Four,at least once (to TI's 4) and maybe win it all, then the Rodney Dangerfield whine will continue. And yes, until then, no one really believes that Bucky deserves the love.

The Boilers beat up on poor Bucky, twice this season. And, conference losses were all away: MSU, IU, and OSU (in OT).

You gotta admit: Purdue is fun to watch = no superstars. Go Boilers!!!
