Keep in mind that Crean is Jim Harbaugh's brother-in-law, so he knows a thing or 2 about post game handshakes.

And he is also Dwyane Wade's mentor, so I'm taking his side on this one.

Bo Ryan got B1G Coach of the Year.
Trey Burke got B1G Player of the Year.

I'll take the B1G Regular Season Title.

Because they all just keep losing. IU would be the best team in the country but they keep losing. OSU got blown out by Duke and lost to Michigan, Indiana, and Michigan State. Michigan has been amazing at home yet has baffling losses. Wisconsin has to depend on buzzer beaters, Illini are okay team

No one in the Big 10 really stands out from the crop and says "Fear me"

Don't get me wrong, they might go deep in the tourney but I don't think any of them win the title. Team that terrifies me the most is Duke. They are not just unbeatable with Kelly, but they're blowing teams out. Duke is the best team in the nation. A few days ago, I said Watford and Oladipo would abuse Duke. I can't say that anymore.

OSU game vs duke was fairly close. Duke was the better team but big ten is better than the big east pretenders IMO. I think acc has the best chance of two final four teams with duke and Miami but that may be homerish having a healthy Kelly back is big, I'm not sure any team can match up with him and plumlee but one bad shooting night and they're out. That's what has me nervous bout dukes chances because in all of their losses they couldn't hit **** from the outside.

Crean is a terrible in game coach. He did a great job rebuilding the program but I'm not convinced he's anything more than average at calling plays, managing substitutions, or making in game adjustments. And Trey Burke meant more to his team than either Zeller or Oladipo in my opinion.

Just because Indiana is the best team doesn't mean they had the best player or coach.

Miami was a close game. Kelly is very important and duke was certainly more beatable without him but I'm not cocky heading into the tourney. it only takes one bad game and the difference in talent isn't as much as it used to be. As a duke fan, the team I fear most is Indiana. And I'd be shocked if gonzaga gets to the final four. They have no business being ranked #1 right now on that weak ass schedule. Duke would smoke em and so would the rest of the top 5.

Crean is a pretty crappy in game coach, there's no denying that.
