    you can assume it was a founding member of the big ten, though

    ok I apologize for my mistake... I took the odds... better chance out of 12 than 10 :)

    edit: also being a pitt grad my undying hatred for all things Penn State makes me ignore the big 10 by default

    in his defense (he's still dumb) 7 of the 11 schools in the Big 10 ARE land grant schools, including Illinois.

    Huh? 5 of 11 current Big Ten members are Land Grant colleges. Michigan State was even the first such school

    JESUS. I just said 7 like 3 posts ago. You can't count and you can't read.

    Minnesota
    Wisconsin
    Illinois
    Purdue
    Michigan State
    Ohio State
    Penn State

    all land grant. when Nebraska joins they'll be number 8.

    I didn't see your post. I just quickly skimmed the Wikipedia list of land grant colleges. My bad.

    it's okay, i was just surprised that it was only 4 posts later that people pretended i didn't exist. usually takes at least 5.

    someday we'll look back at this and laugh. then cry. then fight. then cry some more. then, finally, laugh again.

    I had to leave partway through overtime to go see Harry Potter, but damn, maybe they should have moved away from the pull up jumper at some point.

    Ah well, tomorrow we'll see how they handle Maryland.

    Also were the refs this whistle happy in the Pitt/Maryland game? I think both teams were in the bonus with like seven minutes left.

    No, you stole it from Alabama.

    God it sucks when you lose both games in one of these tournaments.


    Neither loss is a bad loss and both games were close but still, ugh.


    There were at least 3 seperate times where Maryland missed a wide open 3 at a critical juncture of the game. Meanwhile Illiniois shot like 10-20 from behind the line.

    Three-pointers have been a cornerstone of Illinois basketball for roughly five years now.

    Why the hell is Carolina ranked in the top 10?

    Oh, right, they're North Carolina.

    Thankfully, rankings don't mean squat in college basketball.

    can't we beat a good team for once and not have them suddenly be overrated?

    same thing happened with louisville a few years back

    Nah, I'm not hating you guys.

    I was just watching ESPN earlier and saw the highlights and the thing that stuck out to me was that UNC was #8. They were so bad last year and I while I realize they probably got another class full of all-Americans I don't know how they went from "in the NIT" to "top 10".

    I can't totally hate on the Big Ten anyway. We're probably going to lose to Northwestern in two weeks. :(

    The Big Ten always seems to have a strong showing at the tournament, even in a down year.

    Also, dang, it's pretty cool that Minnesota knocked off North Carolina, but yeah, I'm not sure why they were ranked that high in the first place.

    last night, the missouri coach called a timeout with about 8 minutes left in the game and told his players that their goal should be to shut out the other team for the rest of the game

    so they did that
