- Thanks to some help from our friends in Ann Arbor, both our closest pursuers in the conference race both have 5 losses now.
- We have 3 losses.
- We have 3 games remaining.
- If any Big Ten road game has ever been a near-certain win, the game in Bloomington next week is it.
- Barring that upset happening, we are guaranteed at least a tie for the Big Ten title.
Don’t get me wrong: an outright title is clearly the goal. And winning a title despite losing twice to Purdue would be a bit less satisfying.
But it’s also reassuring to be nearly certain of adding to the collection of banners hanging from the Breslin Center rafters.
