    Valiant comeback by the Wolverines after being down 21 points in the first half, but after tying the game at 46 with about 3 mins left, they opted for 3 pt jump shots instead o going inside like the Buckeyes did. No one expected Michigan to comeback and win the game after being blown out in first ten minutes and down 27-6, but to make it all the way back and then try to win on threes was poor execution in IMO . Even when they were down 52-50 with less than 20 seconds I would gone for two and possible and 1 as opposed to the dagger hope I make it three.... Possible # 1 ranking goes by the wayside they probably drop to 5 or 6 unless the voters reward them for making a good comeback.

    As expected, the Wolverines drop to 5 as both the coaches and writers feel that despite the big comeback, they should have never fallen that far behind if they were a top 2 team. Next up is # 9 Minnesota...also on the road, so there could be two losses before the next rankings come out next Monday. However a win there and they should move ahead of Kansas unless they have two impressive wins over Baylor and Texas this week.

    Six Big Ten teams in the top 25. This B1G conference season is just going to be a knock-down slugfest. No one will survive.

    As long as the tournament committee spreads them among each region, they should get two in...

    Ranking decided by voting where stuff like how big of a comeback the losing team did matter - what a system...

    That is just Dre's speculation. The fact is they lost, so they drop 3 or 4 spots. The point differential, comeback, etc. didn't matter. They lost, so they drop.

    Doesn't matter. It's all about the tournament.

    3 #8 seeds have played in the Championship game and 1 won the whole thing.

    2 years ago, it was the 3, 4, 8, and 11 seeds that met in the final four.

    To me, sophistication is a function of simplicity.

    to me, I meant, aS sophisticated as the BCS. Not that the BSC is totally refined but not without well meaning effort. I know it doesn't really matter but is it junk ?

    I leave one letter out and you all go unsophisticated on me.
