Monday, November 29th
Virginia @ Minnesota – Virgina is real bad.

Tuesday, November 30th
North Carolina @ Illinois – Not sold on how good UNC exactly is.
Ohio State @ Florida State
Michigan @ Clemson – Toss up. Neither team is that great.
Georgia Tech @ Northwestern – Was Syracuse just a fluke for GT? Close game.
Iowa @ Wake Forest

Wednesday, December 1st
Michigan State @ Duke – Big time matchup.
Purdue @ Virginia Tech – Both teams aren’t playing at their best.
North Carolina State @ Wisconsin
Indiana @ Boston College – No idea here, haven’t seen either team. Hoosiers are undefeated…
Maryland @ Penn State – Lets go Nits!

6-5 Big Ten.

6-5 ACC
I guess what I’m saying is I like home teams.

Here’s how I see it…

Games ACC should win
Georgia Tech @ Northwestern
Michigan State @ Duke
Michigan @ Clemson

Games B-10 should win
Virginia @ Minnesota
North Carolina State @ Wisconsin
Ohio State @ Florida State

Toss-ups we need to go 3-2 but only 2 home games.
North Carolina @ Illinois
Iowa @ Wake Forest
Purdue @ Virginia Tech
Indiana @ Boston College
Maryland @ Penn State

If we lose that means the other 4 games have to go 3-1 for B-10 with only Illini having the benefit of a home game. For the B-10 to win the challenge, we really need to pick up another “W”

It will be interesting how we match up next year when we add Neb to the mix. At least the home games will even out.

Just FYI, Pomeroy predicts the Big 10 winning 8-3 (w/ loses by MSU, Mich, and Indiana)

Virginia @ Minnesota Gophers are athletic as hell across the board

Tuesday, November 30th
North Carolina @ Illinois UNC hasn’t found its identity yet
Ohio State @ Florida State OSU too good at all positions
Michigan @ Clemson Don’t know anything about either team except that UM is young
Georgia Tech @ Northwestern Gotta like Shurna and co. at home
Iowa @ Wake Forest Both teams are bad right now, I’ll go with the homer pick

Wednesday, December 1st
Michigan State @ Duke Duke may go undefeated
Purdue @ Virginia Tech Purdue gets after it following bad loss
North Carolina State @ Wisconsin Sconnie playing well so far, although just 1 day off after tourney
Indiana @ Boston College Maybe a toss up, but IU has confidence right now
Maryland @ Penn State PSU shoots it well again, gets energy from good home crowd showing

B10 9-2!!

BT 6-5 with PSU winning the clincher. Though I can easily see Indiana pulling out a win on the road.


#10

That’s about my guess too.

Don’t count out Iowa though. Wake Forest is shockingly horrible.


#11

I have lunch bet on the ACC/BIG TEN with a guy here at work who is a Duke fan.

I also have been given 8.5 point in the PSU/MD game by the same guy.


#12

Wow, easy money there


#13

Not money, just lunches. Cash would be unethical. :wink:

I also have a bet with him on our season win total (14.0 games, of coarse I took the over).


#14

Virginia up on Minny under 8 minutes left, WTF! :o IN THE BARN NO LESS!!!


#15

Minny is falling apart. They need to make a run soon!


#16

Yeah, Gophers making us all look dumb! Taking some bad shots and not guarding the UVA shooters. I knew Nolen wasn’t playin, but I still thought they’d handle the Cavaliers.


#17

Never would have guessed this outcome. I put my CentSports money on Minnesota instead of Seton Hall. Looking like a bad decision.


#18

So the key to Minny is keep ball out of Hoffs hands, shoot and hit your 3’s and put Minny on the line.

They were right on with Minny, NOT.
