2012-13 Big Ten Thread
I can't wait for college basketball. Here are my predictions for this season.
3. Ohio St.
4. Michigan St.
11. Penn St.
Any of the top 3 could win the Big Ten ad go far in the NCAA tournament.
^I don't see OSU being as serious contender as IU or Michigan, but Thad will keep the games close. MSU has some good talent and Gary Harris has the potential to keep them in contention right up there with the rest of the elite. In the end though, the B10 will be won by either Michigan or IU, and I won't say who I think will take it :)
The B10 is gonna be GOOD this year. Expect IU, Michigan, MSU, and OSU to be consistently ranked with the elite of the nation.
I have lower level tickets for UNC, Purdue, Minnesota, Bryant, and Central Connecticut (General Admission). I was really hoping to get UNC and am happy that I did, especially good seats.
Are those student tickets?
Yeeeup. We get 10/16 home games, students have always gotten the full season but this year demand hit sky high so they had to cut back.
That sucks. MSU always had all the games not over a break.
There are four non-conference home games over our winter break this year that they didn't include in the student season ticket package (which has always been the case). They offer these games in a separate deal though and students could purchase the tickets if they wanted to at the same price.
Indiana - 1
Michigan - 4
OSU - 5
Anyone else think OSU is a bit too high? I was thinking maybe 9-12, not top 5...
Do you have to pay for student tickets?
At MSU they were about $180
Ya I think it was about $180-200 for us, but that also included the football games too. Because no one cares that much for football, they just included those games as part of the basketball package.
Student tickets for football and basketball are free for us.
Couple notes from Hoosier Hysteria today...
-Yogi Ferrell is GOOD. The kid has ridiculous speed and is terrific with the ball. Don't see how he wouldn't start on this team.
-Maurice Creek's shot wasn't falling, but the man has his speed back and moves very well for someone who's had multiple knee injuries.
-Cody Zeller is a lot more built than he was last year, def ready to become a true center. He also won the 3PT/Long Distance shot contest tonight haha
-Jeremy Hollowell may not get a lot of PT this year, but he is going to be a very solid replacement to Christian Watford next year.
Anyone else have questions let me know, it was a good day!
Can't believe I just found the college basketball forum...anyway...words cannot even describe my excitement for IU and Big Ten basketball this year. Finally time take control of the conference again.
I figure MSU and Michigan will be the main threats to us this year, but honestly I only see us losing a small handful of games this season. Can't see us losing more than 3 or 4 games tops.
