Kansas losing at home to Texas Tech was touted as an example of the depth in the Big 12. Villanova loses to Butler. Well, Hinkle is a tough place to play, and the Bulldogs just seem to have Nova's number. UK isn't going to go 18-0 in the SEC, so that conference is the best it's been in years. However, when MSU loses to someone other than Purdue, it makes the whole conference a train wreck. I get that the Big Ten is not as strong as it has been. But, it still has two legit Final Four contenders. How about giving credit to OSU. Maybe, just maybe, they are putting together a special season. The game yesterday does not remove MSU from being a championship contender. Nor, does it make the Big Ten a 'weaker' conference. In reality, if it does anything, it shows that there is yet another pretty good darn team besides MSU and Purdue in the conference. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
