Yes they did and that is a fact. It is also a fact that when a team makes the final four they hang a banner in their gymnasium to that affect. Isn't that a fact?

Well no conference in the country has as many final four banners nor as many schools flying those FF banners as the Big Ten,

Fact: Big Ten has 45 final fours divided between eight (8) teams. The surprise for you boys is who the leader is in FF appearances from the Big Ten. That's right ... the answer is in my avi. Here is the breakdown by Conf and schools:

Big 10: tOSU 11, IN 8, MSU 8, IL 5, TSUN 5, Iowa 3, Wisky 3, Purdue 2, total 45

SEC: KY 16, FL 5, LSU 4, Arky 2 (as members of SEC), GA 1, MSU 1 total 29

ACC: NC 18, Puke 15, NC St 3, GT 2, MD 2, VA 2, Wake 1 total 43

What I have always said about B1G bball (and this is especially true over the last 2/3 years) is that what makes us the best conference in bball is not the top of our league, it is the bottom. As you can see guys, we don't have a KY or a Duke or NC. What we have is total and complete balance.
Its like the SEC in football. There is no week off.

Proof for the "bottom of the conference" theroy. In just the last 10 years of the NIT the Big Ten has played in the trophy game 7 times and won 4. I won't go into the whole NIT history but you will find the Big Ten dominates it too.

Sparty, thx for the invite. I will try and catch it on B1G Network. I have been watching some of the other Spring games.

What will you be looking for tomorrow.

BTW, I might take you up during the regular season as we move on towards that fateful collision.

Thank you for the answer. I might point out that to make the elite 8 in 1967 you just had to win a game or two. The dance was not that big a deal.

Any final fours?

I should have added another factor. Much improved defensive play all over the field and at every position. The D line will be one of the best units in country. They are 8 deep all the way across the front. This 5* freshman Daekwon McMillan from Georgia is an absolute stud at inside LB.
When he lines up your eyes just notice him and you say "who is that?" The kid physically stands out and makes plays. He was a little out of position on some plays (to be expected) but he is a specimen.

Tinny, Miller did not play as he was still resting from the shoulder injury and subsequent surgery from the Orange Bowl. Cardale Jones (#2 qb) looked bad and JT Barrett was better but not appreciably.
Hard to determine if it is lack of protection, bad receivers or bad quaterbacking. Any way you look at it they are re-building the offense. It will be all Braxton Miller.
