Big 10 basketball is cray.

Someone disputed the claim that it was the best in the nation

B1G Best Conf w/o a doubt

Michigan lost this game because they went ice cold from downtown when they needed it the most. They are probably no longer undefeated, but let me tell you this team had a lot of heart and grit out there today

They were down 21

They fought back to make it 2 before the three nearly went in

Just didn't have that kind of luck from downtown in the final minutes

Good game

When you play in the best conference, it's going to happen.

But a great comeback in what was, as of now, their worst game of the year.

Brutal loss. I loved how Michigan fought. I hate how OSU won. Gotta love the B1G.

Big ten fans claim they are best every year, then all their teams choke when it matters in the tourney.

The U is on top of the ACC with a 3-0 record & because of a great non-conference schedule, thier RPI is #6 at the moment.

The Big Ten has been the best conference for a few years now, but this is the best it's been in a long time even with Wisconsin being "down".

They lost to Florida Gulf Coast and Indiana St, that's why.

Wyoming has only lost one game (to 13-2 BSU/ 28 in rpi, on a buzzer beater) and fell from 27 to 37 in the AP and 25 to 32 in the espn/coaches polls.

You don't grade how good a conference is on how many national titles teams from it have won. That does nothing to show the depth of a conference.

UK won last year, so by your logic, the SEC is better than the Big Ten.

How do you judge then? Meaningless regular season games? Fact is over the past 12 years no major conference has come up short more when it counts than the big ten.

Is there any easy way to look at non-conference quality of wins between the conferences over t he past few seasons?

By that same logic, since Butler made it to two consecutive title games, the Atlantic 10 is a top flight conference then.

The Big Ten conference schedule is a grind. No conference has the depth they have.

I think this site does a very good job breaking down all the numbers and rankings conferences
